Sunlight phototherapy has been used in ancient Egypt, China and India for over a thousand years. In 1903 researchers on the subject won the Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology thanks to their published studies. In 1960, NASA conducted several studies related to the effects of light on cell metabolism. LED phototherapy (Light Emitting Diode) stimulates cytochrome C oxidase in the mitochondria to activate the white cell.
Among the effects we can see when applying LED phototherapy are:
a. Anti-inflammatory: As an anti-inflammatory after medical procedures that inflame the skin.
b. Immune / Bactericidal: Modulates the response of our defenses.
C. Reconstructive / Healing: Excellent for stimulating the healing of wounds and ulcers.
d. Rejuvenation: It acts by stimulating the production of collagen and as a regenerator repairs aging skin.
