THE SCIENCE Photobiomodulation (“photo”=light “bio”=life “modulation”=a change in something) or in its more common and known name, LIGHT THERAPY is the use of light to cause a change in a living organism. The recent scientific name to light therapy “photobiomodulation” marks the acceptance of light therapy into the practice of Western conventional medicine. Our cells contain “chromophores” which literally absorb light. In the same way that plants convert sunlight into plant tissue, once specific wavelengths of light are absorbed, they set off physical and chemical reactions within the cell. This can affect and trigger natural processes in human tissue, such as alleviating pain or inflammation, stimulating the immune system, healing wounds and scars, regenerating tissue, and more. LUXEFINA has researched and adapted light therapy technology to an innovative solution that is able to combine different wavelengths of light, therefore targeting and treating distinct body and skin concerns such as aesthetic and physical treatments. NAALT (North American Association for Photobiomodulation Therapy) defines photobiomodulation therapy as “a form of light therapy that utilizes non-ionizing forms of light sources, including LASERS, LEDs, and broad-band light, in the visible and infrared spectrum. It is a non-thermal process involving endogenous chromophores eliciting photophysical (i.e. linear and non-linear) and photochemical events at various biological scales. This process results in beneficial therapeutic outcomes including but not limited to the alleviation of pain or inflammation, immunomodulation, and promotion of wound healing and tissue regeneration.” 7

TRHEEDLIRGAHPTY Research from NASA, Harvard, MIT, and other ivy league universities show evidence that red light therapy is not to be ignored. The benefits of this technology keep piling up from help with fat reduction, age defying, pain relief, and more! Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has been The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) actively used for nearly 40 yr., during approved the use of LLLT in 2003. With which time it has been known to reduce over 4000 basic science research and pain, inflammation, and edema. It also clinical studies according to has the ability to promote healing of, and low complication rate, wounds, including deep tissues and LLLT should be considered as a first-line nerves, and prevent tissue damage treatment option for conditions such as through cell death. Much of the acute neck or back pain, tendinitis, landmark research was done by the plantar fasciitis, mild carpal tunnel National Aeronautics and Space syndrome, and ligamentous sprains Administration (NASA), and these studies provided a springboard for many Visible red light is capable of penetrating additional basic science studies. the skin to a depth of about 8 to 10 mm.

But no matter what the application, red and infrared could boost plant growth, but light therapy share the same benefits overall. coincidentally the scientist’s skin lesions 13 began to heal faster as well. NASA subsequently began to study the use of LED to increase the metabolism of human cells and stem the loss of bone and muscle in astronauts. is a transcutaneous procedure with no invasive portion. The physician determines the correct synchronizations of continuous or pulsed laser emission. Penetration depth is determined by wavelength and power.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, light therapy can \"show great promise in treating acne” after a few sessions. Blue-light light-emitting diode (LED) therapy has become widely used for the treatment of inflammatory acne irradiation of P. acnes colonies with blue visible light leads to photoexcitation of endogenous bacterial porphyrin, singlet oxygen production, and bacterial destruction. Which, in easy words, means killing the bacteria that causing acne It has been shown clinically that acne may be treated successfully with blue visible light phototherapy. Topical and oral antibacterial are the mainstream of treatment for acne today, but with growing awareness of what we are entering our body, looking for an easy, safe and cost-efficient alternative had become a priority for many who suffer from acne. The proposed mode of action of LED application is that a porphyrin (coproporphyrin III) produced within P. acnes generates free radicals when irradiated by 415nm-420nm and shorter wavelengths of light. When LED is applied over several days, these free radicals effectively kill the bacteria. Since porphyrins are not otherwise present in skin, and no UV light is employed, LED is shown to be safe. It has been approved by the FDA. In a research that have been conducted by Tennessee Clinical Research Center regarding the Efficacy of Self-applied Blue Light Therapy for Mild-to-Moderate Facial Acne, it was conclude that the “Subjects found the use of the blue light device to be easy, even with daily applications. They did not experience any difficulties when using self-treatment with TC, even without supervision of a doctor”. And “Subjects evaluated self-administration of the blue light treatment according to the device’s labeling as being safe and effective. The study showed that daily self-treatment using the device for mild-to-moderate inflammatory acne reduced the number of acne lesions significantly. Moreover, the study demonstrated a significant improvement of the subjects’ skin conditions. Subjects included in the study were able to safely and effectively administer self- treatment with the device and felt confident doing so”. With so many evidences from so many researches supporting support the effectiveness of using blue-light LED therapy for better improvement and faster resolution of inflammatory acne lesions, blue light therapy might have the benefits you are searching for. 14


GREEN light therapy improves and Green light therapy has become a popular idea that balances the skin tone. This can help migraine patients inquire about. Prevention of breakdown and prevent uneven migraines includes numerous approaches, melanin production. Green light is also including medication, avoidance of triggers, and being used in medicine to help relieve complementary approaches. In recent years non- pain. Aside from fading age spots, pharmacological approaches to migraine s sunspots, and hyper-pigmentation, the management become very appealing to many and light therapy creates a barrier that will light therapy became an attractive solution to some reduce the risks of such skin blemishes people due to being patient controlled, inexpensive, re-occurring in the future. and non-invasive nature. 16

On 2016, a multinational study was published While these studies did not demonstrate in the journal Brain which conducted research that green light can be used as therapy for and found out that some migraine patients preventing or relieving migraines, the experienced a decrease in photophobia in results have raised patient interest in the response to green light exposure. In idea. Yet, there are still many questions conclusion, the authors reported that “green about whether green light therapy could light is least likely to exacerbate migraine have a real-world impact on migraines and headache and at low intensities it may even be how to best take advantage of the effect. therapeutic by reducing the headache intensity. 17


PURPLE light therapy is a combination of red and blue light which helps eliminate toxins, reduces inflammation, and improves healing and circulation of blood. As a result, purple light is highly recommended after aggressive and invasive treatments (such as Botox, fillers or lasers), as it considerably reduces inflammation and marks. It also helps wound healing, reduces visible acne, and acne marks. 19


YELLOW light therapy improves the oxygenation of the cells and favors the immune system. As a result, it helps reduce redness (couperose) and irritation, regulates sensitive skin, and increases the luminosity and softness of the skin. Yellow light also stimulates the nervous system, improving muscle and tissue tone. As a result, it has a highly firming and tightening effect on the skin. 21

Can I still use my regular skin care products while I’m using red light therapy? Absolutely. If you are happy with the skin care products that you are currently using, then there is no reason to change them. Simply make sure that your face is gently but thoroughly cleansed of all products before using your light, then follow up with your typical skin care routine. Some products can block the penetration of the light, while others – such as benzoyl peroxide, vitamin A, Retin-A, or alcohol – can cause irritation when used under intense light. That issue is completely avoided when the products are removed before the light therapy. Is light therapy similar FA to sunbathing? Does the treatment hurt? Although sunbathing produces a feeling of wellbeing in an NO. LED light treatments never hurt. Unlike lasers or individual and is vital for the microdermabrasion, which makes use of abrasion to change the skin’s creation of Vitamin D, there is a appearance, these treatments only use light. Users do not report large difference between the discomfort during treatments. The skin may feel warm due to the light coming from the sun and intensity of the LED light treatment. the light that is coming from a LED light treatment. There is no 22 risk of sunburn when treating with LED light since there is no UVA or UVB rays in LED light therapy. Can red light therapy be combined with treatment lights of other colors? Yes. In fact, some conditions will experience more improvement when two colors of light therapy are used instead of one. For instance, many acne patients experience a broader spectrum of benefits when they use red and blue light therapy instead of one or the other. Some customers prefer to use both red and amber or red and green for anti-aging treatments.

Is there such thing as getting too much red light Is red light therapy therapy? safe to use on sensitive skin? Yes. Using red light therapy for too long can reduce the effectiveness of your treatments. Red and near infrared light therapy have a “sweet All light therapy products are spot” where the light is most effective. Follow the directions that approved for all skin types and come with your device and resist the urge to over do it. skin tones. However, if you have any specific concerns, it is recommended that you speak with your physician or dermatologist. AQ How often can I use the LED DEVICE? In order to maximize the treatment results with LED, it is recommended you perform a full treatment three times a week for a period of one month. After the end of the first month, we recommend continuing maintenance treatments on the area of your most concern up to three times a week How long do the results last? Results depend on the type and length of treatment. Skin treatments are a dynamic process. Continued treatments are needed for wrinkles and expression lines to stay at bay. Do I need to continue to use the light as much when I start seeing results? Yes. Just because you are seeing results does not mean that your skin cells are finished doing their job. The results of their efforts start to become something you can see and/or feel. Keep up the treatments until you reach your goal level of results. Then you can start a weekly maintenance schedule. 23
