WAVELENGTH and FREQUENCY:
All forms of electromagnetic radiation ( or light ) can be thought of as consisting of waves. Therefore, we can characterize light waves by their WAVELENGTH .
FREQUENCY is the measure of how close together waves are compressed.
WAVELENGTH – the longer the deeper penetration
FREQUENCY-how close together waves are compressed.
Plant and Light
Light penetrates the plants epidermis
LED & Plant growth
Light emitting diodes
Light Technologies LASER .. IPL .. LED
LED MEANS L IGHT E MITTING D IODES
LED ARE NON COLIMATED BEAMS OF LIGHT (NON FOCUSED)
LASERS ARE COLIMATED AND FOCUSED LIGHT FOR HIGH ENERGY
IPL (INTENSE PULSED LIGHT)
VERY POWERFUL -- DESTROYS TISSUE
DISCOMFORT -- NEED COOLANT
HYPO-PIGMENTATION - DARKER SKIN
VERY EXPENSIVE TO PURCHASE
COST OF TREATMENT VERY HIGH
NOT WITHIN ESTHETICIAN SCOPE
CAN HYPO-PIGMENT DARKER SKIN
LESS $ THAN LASER MORE THAN LED
MANY STATES OFF LIMITS FOR ESTHETICIANS
LAMPS HAVE SHORT LIFESPAN
NO HEAT --NO DISCOMFORT
OFTEN IMMEDIATE VISUAL RESULTS
ESTHETICIAN CAN USE
HISTORY OF LIGHT THERAPY
Light therapy has been shown in over 40 years of independent research to deliver powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissues. Visible red light has been shown to effect many different positive changes at a cellular level. Visible red light, at a wavelength of 660-680nm, penetrates tissue to a depth of about 8-10 mm.
HOW DOES LIGHT WORK?
The principal is through biostimulation of the cells by pure Monochromatic Light. Light is absorbed by the cell, accelerating tissue repair, thus speeding up recovery time. This method of biostimulation is particularly successful in the fields of Dermatology, Neurology, Physiotherapy and is a must in the world of beauty and fitness."
Without sunlight Vitamin D cannot be metabolized in the human body, resulting in rickets. Studies have shown that Light can affect enzymatic reactions.
Newborn babies with jaundice are treated with light.
Unlike laser technology that relies on high-powered coherent light to create heat energy, LED photomodulation (pulse modulation) triggers the body to convert light energy into cell energy without thermal injury to tissue.
“ Using LEDs we can modulate the cells by increasing the energy to the assembly line of fibroblasts to stimulate collagen production and regenerate aging or sun damaged skin
. Similar to pushing a button to activate an assembly line, photomodulation refers to using low-energy light to accelerate cell activity. For anti-aging benefits, Dr. McDaniel and his research team investigated technologies that stimulate the skin’s fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin proteins.

Recent medical studies indicate amber is very useful in the treatment of acne (Journal of American Academy of Dermatology, 3/06, After a study of 20 patients treated twice a week for four weeks, it was concluded, “intense LED yellow light (585nm) is a safe, well-tolerated treatment for mild to moderate acne.)
