Cold Light Laser LED
Photomodulation Cold Laser
This process has the unique ability to stimulate and/or inhibit cell-signaling pathways for skin rejuvenation and potentially represents the next frontier in anti-aging medicine.
Photomodulation is a process that manipulates or regulates cell activity using light sources without thermal effect. This is achieved using portions of the visible light spectrum that does not contain any Ultra Violet or Infra Red, thus achieving a non-thermal, non-invasive, and non-ablative method of skin rejuvenation.
The primary goal of non-ablative rejuvenation is the stimulation of new collagen and dermal extra-cellular matrix substance, which visibly improves the appearance of wrinkles without disturbance or damage to the overlying epidermis.
Until recently, our thinking about how to accomplish this has involved primarily thermal methods, whether it is heating of the dermis to stimulate fibroblast proliferation or heating blood vessels for photocoagulation. Intense Pulsed Light and Laser treatments are the most common modalities used that employ thermal methods. Although highly effective, there are the thermal discomfort considerations that some clients will not be prepared to accept. This is where LED Photomodulation hasit’s place in the market.
How does it work?
LED Photomodulation uses low intensity light emitting diodes to create a process similar to plant photosynthesis whereby plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into cellular building blocks.
The light emitted by the LEDs is absorbed by epidermal cells and produces a remarkable cascade of events.
ATP, (Adenosine Triphosphate) the form of energy that cells utilize, is produced in this process and used to power the metabolic processes that synthesize DNA, RNA, needed proteins, enzymes, and other biological materials needed to repair or regenerate cell and tissue components; foster mitosis or cell proliferation; and/or restore homeostasis.
Studies of LED Photomodulation have shown skin textural improvement accompanied by increased collagen deposition with reduced MMP-1 (collagenase) activity in the papillary dermis. Using Photomodulation, scientists theorize that we are both slowing down collagen breakdown and building up new collagen.
One of the benefits of LED Photomodulation is that a wide range of Fitzpatrick skin types can be treated safely. Because of the low-intensity and specific bandwidth control of the light source, (Absorbed energy typically less than a 25 watt light bulb) there is no thermal damage to the epidermis.
A nice compliment to any Chemical Peel, Dermaplane, MicroNeedle, or Microdermabrasion session.
