  58. 58. • Most systems use a continuous light beam in thewavelength range between 385 - 3500nm.• This treatment reduces infections and supports naturalhealing mechanisms.• The systems are easy to handle.• In many cases light therapy also helps where traditionalmedical methods fail, and in many cases without additionalmedication.• One session per day, approximately 10 - 20 sessions over4 weeks is average required. Ø The treatment durations arebetween 4 ~ 15 minutes per treatment area.
  59. 59. 1. Remove make-up, sweat anddirt with cleansing cream. Incase of inflammatory skindiseases, cleanse smoothly.2. Rinse cleanly so the Light canthoroughly the skin.

  85. 85. The Low-Energie LaserLLLT
  86. 86. •LASER = Light Amplification byStimulated Emission of Radiation.• Laser consists of same wavelength, colour, form anddirection.

  88. 88. The working principal of a laser is called stimulated emission:• Electrons are supplied with energy.• Electrons have the property of being in a low energy level.• They therefore emit energy in form of light.
  89. 89. - The emitted Light moves between two mirorrs back andforth and becomes always stronger.- One mirorr is pacially trasparent to light, so that light inform of a beam can be released.A photon hits an excited atom...and the atom emits a new photonthat is exactly equal to the first.
