Frequently Asked Questions
What is Light Therapy?
It is a unique therapy that harnesses the healing powers of infrared, red and blue light. The lights emit special wavelengths of light energy that dramatically increase circulation to injury sites and areas of chronic pain. The result is a rapid relief of discomfort, improvement in sensation, and a regeneration of damaged tissues.
What Does Light Therapy Do?
Light Therapy assist your body’s in its own innate healing capabilities by increasing blood circulation. Studies show that when we increase blood circulation, a biochemical change starts to occur in our bodies resulting in:
Scientific effects of increased circulation include:
- Cell stimulation that leads to pain relief and tissue healing
- Improved muscle performance and mental clarity
- Decreased swelling from injuries
- Detoxifying effects
What’s the difference between red, blue, and infrared light?
Every color of light has its own wavelength. Our cells know how to absorb each of these colors and use them for different benefits. All three colors compliment each other, triggering cellular function to promote the body’s natural healing ability.
- Blue light: Contains antimicrobial properties, making it effective for skin care and wound healing.
- Red light: Triggers an increase in circulation.
- Infrared light: Reaches deeper tissues like muscle, tendons and ligaments.
Are there any side-effects?
LED Light therapy is an all natural therapy with no know side-effects.
Does it hurt?
No. It is a gentle, non-invasive, and painless therapy.
How long has Light Therapy been around and why haven'T I heard of it before?
The use of light and color to help heal our bodies, dates back thousands of years. Ancient civilizations across the Earth, respected the power of light and color and recognized the healing properties they possessed. By embracing our roots, going back to the basics, and combining it with the technology we have today- we are able to create cutting edge devices like these. LED Light Therapy is quickly coming to the forefront of medicine.
What is the difference between Infrared Saunas and In Light Medical Devices?
Infrared Saunas consists of far infrared light, heating up the body creating hyperthermia.This will get the immune system active like a fever does, but artificially, because of the heat given. In Light Medical systems consists of near infrared light, which triggers a biochemical change in the cells, such as: nitric oxide and ATP production. This creates a cascade effect of other responses, including warming the tissue, but but not overheating it like far infrared does.
How are In Light Medical Systems different from other systems I see on the market?
InLight Medical has 30 years of history in innovation and advancement of light therapy devices. All systems are Class II Medical device and manufactured right here in the U.S. with the highest quality materials available. All systems also carry a FDA 510(k) Clearance.
What is the difference between In Light Medical Systems and the LED Light Therapy Facial I receive from my facialist?
Because our skin is directly affected by what’s going on in our bodies, we want to make sure we work on the body as a whole. When your liver and kidneys aren’t functioning properly, it can start to show through your skin. With InLight Medical Systems, you are able to work on your entire body, not just your face; working from the inside out. Unlike, when you go see your facialist and you get a LED Light Therapy Facial, they are just working on your face not the main organs that support your skin. When you support your skin through properly functioning organs, well then the result is beautiful, regenerated, glowing skin!
Are the lights safe to use on animals?
I have seen many success stories from clients, my pets included, that have benefited from Light Therapy. LED light therapy has also been shown to be effective for equine pain therapy and for healing injuries in sport horses.
