Light Therapy

What is Photobiomodulation?

PHOTO (light)

Unlocking the mechanism behind the efficacy of light therapy is Photobiomodulation, a treatment employing non-ionizing light sources such as lasers, LEDs, and broadband light across the visible and infrared spectrum, which harnesses endogenous chromophores to induce photophysical and photochemical reactions within biological systems. This nonthermal process yields therapeutic benefits, including pain relief, inflammation reduction, modulation of the immune response, and facilitation of wound healing and tissue regeneration.

Photobiomodulation (PBM) delivered via light-emitting diodes (LEDs) at various wavelengths penetrates tissue to different depths and is naturally absorbed by the cells to assist in the production of Adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy required for cell repair and regeneration.

Researchers hypothesize the unique benefit of photobiomodulation is the synergistic effect of infrared (IR) with either blue or red allowing both colors to penetrate tissue more deeply than in a monochromatic application. The PBM energy application also facilitates the release of nitric oxide, supporting the body with improved circulation. Improved circulation (blood flow) is one of the most vital components of the healing process. 

Light, whether from the sun or from technology, is absorbed by the skin and triggers beneficial biological changes at the cellular level. These changes are unique and unmatched by any other medical intervention. Inlight’s LED light therapy pad designs allow the ability to target areas of concern.

The PBM light energy provided by the LED pads is a valuable tool in restoring and improving health and vitality.

Changes occur at the cellular level

Studies indicate that exposure to red, blue, and infrared light emitted by LEDs triggers several beneficial cellular changes. These changes occur as a result of mitochondria releasing nitric oxide (NO) and boosting ATP production in skin cells exposed to photobiomodulation.

Nitric oxide acts as a signaling molecule that prompts the production of healing substances. By triggering nitric oxide release, photobiomodulation enhances circulation, eases pain, and kick-starts the body’s natural healing pathways.

Every mammalian cell possesses specialized receptors designed to absorb light. Surprisingly, our cells not only thrive on light but also require it for optimal performance, indicating its crucial role in maintaining overall health. When exposed to pulsed light, our bodies interpret it as a directive, prompting the release of nitric oxide and signaling cells to produce proteins that combat inflammation and promote restoration. Notably, the Nobel Prize-winning molecule nitric oxide is unleashed through photobiomodulation.

Inlight Therapy systems also leverage their Progressive Multi-Pulse™ technology to harness the healing potential through photobiomodulation. The delivery of photon energy occurs through pulsed frequencies, which serve as vital directives for the body to activate its self-repair mechanisms.

Pain Relief & Wellbeing

Inlight Therapy systems often yield favorable outcomes for individuals exhibiting symptoms of pain or circulation issues linked to the listed conditions:

  • Joint pain: Neck, Back, Elbow, Knee, Wrist, and Knuckles
  • Inflammation and swelling 
  • Bone fractures 
  • Bruises 
  • Burns 
  • Non-healing wounds 
  • Peripheral neuropathy 
  • Tight muscles 
  • Mood Disorders 
  • Skin conditions 

The more we understand the value of increasing circulation to our tissues, the easier it is to understand how and why photobiomodulation supports the body’s innate healing processes regardless of the condition. And, why it provides a wealth of additional health benefits that support full-body wellness.

How Does The Technology Work?

Light serves as a vital component for sustaining life. The utilization of sunlight for therapeutic purposes traces back millennia. Contemporary advancements in science have refined the controlled administration of specific wavelengths (colors) of sunlight into low-level light therapy (LLLT) technology.

With 39 years of light therapy device manufacturing expertise, Inlight Therapy products represent the cutting-edge culmination, featuring LED light therapy technology (PBM) with Progressive Multi-Pulse™ delivery. This unique photobiomodulation therapy utilizes near-infrared light, invisible to the human eye, known to enhance circulation in areas of chronic pain by dilating blood vessels, leading to swift relief, improved sensation, and tissue regeneration.

Inlight’s proprietary Progressive Multi-Pulse™ technology delivers different wavelengths of light at varied pulsed rates. Legally marketed as an FDA Class II Medical Device, it is confirmed that the application of Inlight’s flexible neoprene therapy pads laden with LED combinations of red, blue, and near-infrared diodes directly onto the skin introduces the benefits directly to the body parts through skin response.

“Photobiomodulation” (PBM) was established in 2016. It was a Medical Science Heading (MeSH keyword) used by the National Institute of Health published research database to describe this emerging science. The LED light initiates the photobiomodulation process which releases nitric oxide – gently increasing circulation (blood flow) throughout the body delivering vital nutrients. Evidence demonstrates photobiomodulation signals damaged cells to begin their repair processes. This mechanism of action is a photo-chemical response, not a heat/thermal response, therefore the tissue is safe from thermal damage making the Inlight Therapy systems both safe and effective for home use.

Light energy isn’t just vital for life; it also plays a crucial role in bolstering the body’s innate healing mechanisms.

Through LEDs emitting photon light energy at various wavelengths, tissue penetration occurs at different levels, naturally absorbed by cells to aid in Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production, vital for cell repair and regeneration. Additionally, photon energy application promotes the release of nitric oxide, enhancing circulation, a key aspect of the healing journey. LED light energy is valuable for fostering health, wellness, and vitality.
