Healite II Phototherapy Treatment
What is LED?
L (light) E (emitting) D (diode)
Light Emitting Diode
LEDs are semiconductors that convert electrical energy directly to light.
LEDs are semiconductor light sources that combine a P-type semiconductor (larger hole concentration) with an N-type semiconductor (larger electron concentration). Applying a sufficient forward voltage will cause the electrons and holes to recombine at the P-N junction, releasing energy in the form of light.
What is LLLT?
L (low) L (level) L (light) T (therapy)
Low Level Light Therapy
- Improving healing times
- Relieving pain
- Subsiding active acne
- Promoting skin rejuvenation
Features of the Healite II phototherapy system
- Ideal wavelength
- Powerful enough to penetrate deep where it is needed
- Works at subcellular, cellular and tissue level
- Works alone or as an adjunctive therapy
- Treats multiple indications
- Pain-free, non-invasive, treatment of patients all ages
Pre-emptive micro-low level light therapy (μ-LLLT) with 590 nm is preceded for 60 seconds ahead of continuous delivery of 830 nm in order to pre-condition epidermis and enhance dermal tissue interaction by 830 nm.
This is an office, non-surgical treatment. Current research indicates that the risk of adverse events is extremely low when performed by well trained, experienced operators.
- Wound Healing
- Pain Relief
- Infra-red light source can be used to provide temporary relief of muscle and joint pain
- Muscle Spasm
- Infra-red light source can be used to improve local blood circulation
- Reduction of vulval epithelial relaxation
- Skin Rejuvenation
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
- Active Acne
- Superficial skin lesions
- Encourages wound and cellular healing post-laser or post-surgery
- Reduces pain, edema and erythema
- Increases blood flow to the wound
- Decreases the risk of bruising
- Decreases recovery time
- Offers prophylaxis against scar formation
- Reduces PIH (post inflammatory hyperpigmentation)
- Improves the clinical results
Healite II can be used in combination with other treatments
Frequently asked questions
The approximate treatment time is 15 minutes per area treated.
The recommended number of sessions for stand alone rejuvenation treatment is 8 spread over 4 weeks (thus 2 treatments per week). Repeat treatments may be beneficial every 4 weeks for maintenance of effects. For combined therapy, discuss with Dr Onuma.
Normal activities of daily living can be resumed immediately.
This is an office procedure that does not require admission to hospital.
- Promotes skin rejuvenation by stimulating collagen and elastin
- Treats dermatitis, rosacea and psoriasis
- Encourages lasting hydration in the skin
- Boosts immune function, improving healing times of wounds and compromised skin
- Enhances the results of your other professional skin treatments
- Subsides active acne
- Relieves of muscle and joint pain
There is no Medicare rebate for the treatment.
The treatment is painless and for most, the light therapy is relaxing.
The treatment can take place at any time of the menstrual cycle.
Healite II is an LED-LLLT treatment. This is a concentrated light therapy method to bring targeted light and warmth to the skin. These light “waves” help to boost your circulation and improve your innate healing capacity.
Risks of Healite II phototherapy treatment
Healite II treatment is contraindicated if the patient is:
- taking drugs that promote photosensitivity
- taking other products which can cause photosensitivity
- known to have an active cancer
Photosensitivity can also be caused by:
- Certain perfumes or plant materials, such as St Johns Wort, which have been in contact with the skin.
- Metabolic disorders such as Porphyria and other light induced rashes, porphyria is a severe light induced allergy and treatment is not recommended.
- Autoimmune diseases (self-allergy), such as lupus erythematosus.
When near infra-red light LED (830nm wavelength) is used, no eye protection is required. However when using blue light (415nm wavelength), looking directly into the LED beam can result in permanent visual injury; thus eye protection is required.
