Yellow light (830nm/590nm) is excellent at reducing inflammation and is commonly to target scars, acne and pigmentation, as well as eczema and rosacea. Yellow light is also used for wound healing & pain relief, and is a great way to minimise any bruising and swelling after injections.
Red light (633nm) is commonly used to rejuvenate damaged skin tissues, as well as to promote hair regrowth. By stimulating tissue regeneration and collagen synthesis, red light is suitable for those concerned with signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles, and those who suffer from hair loss.
Blue light (415nm) can kill acne-causing bacteria on the skin and is often used in conjunction with other acne treatments such as AGNES for a more permanent solution. Blue light can also improve pigmentary conditions such as psoriasis and vitiligo.
LLLT makes use of non-ionising light sources, including lasers, light-emitting diodes, and/or broadband light, in the visible (400 to 700 nm) and near-infrared (700 to 1100 nm) electromagnetic spectrum.
During the procedure, different wavelengths and outputs of low-level light penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. This stimulates the fibroblasts, which increase the rate of collagen production.
As we age, the fibroblasts in our skin lose their ability to produce collagen and elastin — two components that keep our skin looking young, tight, and crease-free. The low levels of laser used in this treatment is enough to positively stimulate the fibroblasts and encourage collagen and elastin production. The increased production of these two proteins then reduces the signs of aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines.
"The results of LLLT treatments are immediate and cumulative, often requiring consistent treatments at the prescribed intervals by the doctor. We usually recommend a course of 6 to 12 short treatment sessions to be done once to twice a week, depending on the condition of the patient."
"While in-clinic LLLT treatments are by and large more effective than at-home devices, results can still vary across different machines. At Veritas, we use Soli-lite for our LLLT treatments. Soli-lite is a sophisticated photobiomodulation system with monochromatic light panels to ensure enhanced power and accurate wavelengths are delivered to the tissues, allowing for accelerated biological changes to be induced, and faster results for our patients."
