What is Photobiomodulation?

Unlocking the mechanism behind the efficacy of light therapy is achieved through a concept known as photobiomodulation (PBM).

PHOTO (light)BIO (biology)MODULATION (alteration)

Photobiomodulation, a treatment employing non-ionizing light sources such as lasers, LEDs, and broadband light across the visible and infrared spectrum, 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

Many people with symptoms of pain or impaired circulation associated with the following conditions experience positive results from using the Inlight Therapy systems: 

  • 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 is an essential nutrient of life. Using the sun’s light as therapy dates back thousands of years. Modern science has evolved the engineered delivery of the beneficial wavelengths (colors) of the sun’s light into low-level light therapy (LLLT) technology. 

Thirty eight years (and counting) in the manufacturing of light therapy devices, Inlight Therapy products are the state-of-the-art outcome of this evolution uniquely designed as LED light therapy technology (PBM) with Progressive Multi-Pulse™ delivery. Photobiomodulation light therapy is a unique therapy that harnesses the powers of near-infrared light. Unlike normal blue, red or yellow light, near-infrared (also known as NIR) light is invisible to the human eye. It emits special wavelengths of light energy that dramatically increase circulation to areas of chronic pain. The NIR light has been reported to dilate blood vessels at the site of treatment. The result tends to be a more rapid relief of discomfort, improvement in sensation, and regeneration of damaged tissues.

Inlight’s proprietary Progressive Multi-Pulse™ technology delivers different wavelengths of light in 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 is not only essential to life, it provides powerful support to the body’s natural healing processes. The photon light energy, delivered via LEDs at various wavelengths, penetrates tissue at 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. The photon 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. LED light energy is a valuable tool to utilize for health, wellness, and vitality.
