Using LEDs for PhotomodulationNew Therapeutic Solution

Photomodulation using Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) is a non-invasive phototherapy technique. It involves using lights with specific wavelengths at a low intensity to stimulate natural biological repair mechanisms.

Biolux technology uses a range of wavelengths between 470 and 850 nm, offering lights capable of penetrating tissues at various depths to stimulate cells and open the therapeutic window.
The wavelengths chosen define the conditions for which the technology can be used.

Light penetrates into skin based on wavelengths

Wavelength Properties

Blue Light

  • is a bactericide
  • treats minimal to moderate acne
  • regulates sebaceous glands
  • purifies skin
  • soothes skin irritation and itching

Green Light

  • stimulates cell migration and proliferation
  • optimises healing

Yellow Light

  • stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis
  • increases cell metabolism
  • improves skin flexibility and elasticity
  • adds density and restructures skin
  • energises cells

Red Light

  • contains anti-inflammatory properties
  • regulates vascularisation
  • stimulates fibroblasts
  • regenerates cells
  • regulates sebaceous glands
  • prevents inflammatory responses triggered by UV rays

Near-Infrared Light

  • has an analgesic effect
  • complements red light

Managing Stimulation Parameters Key to Photomodulation

Since it was introduced, photomodulation has often been considered an empirical technique with random results. Ten years of research led to an understanding of the biological mechanisms triggered and highlighted how important it is to control the stimulation parameters to obtain effective treatments with objective doses. Today, photomodulation is a safe, well-managed and effective technology.

  1. Wavelengths
  2. Optical intensity : the number of photons emitted per unit area
  3. Opening angle
  4. Treatment distance
  5. Treatment time
  6. Duration – Number of repetitions

To obtain photomodulation’s biological effect, a range of doses with optimised effects must be used. Outside this range, the effect is reduced or completely inhibited—this is the biphasic effect.
