Healite II, otherwise known as Low-Level Light Therapy, is the therapeutic use of pure light in precise wavelengths to photomodulate cellular function. These deep penetrating LED lights target deep into the skin to activate the mitochondria of the skin cells, heightening their internal functions. This aim of this is to stimulate the skin’s blood flow and induce quicker healing times, helping to decrease pain and inflammation from wounds, sore muscles or joints, and active acne.
The Plain Speak
Healite treatments harness the power of low light light therapy to treat the skin at a superficial level without creating any physical trauma, heat damage or downtime. Delivering pure light to the skin enhances the body’s natural cellular recovery processes, increasing collagen and elastin levels in the skin and promoting visibly younger and healthier skin.
Treatments are proven to speed up the healing of wounds, making them the ideal complement to treatments such as laser, skin needling and deep chemical peels. As a standalone treatment, Healite can help reduce active acne, improve photo-aged skin and promote skin rejuvenation.
Different wavelengths of LED light are used to address different skin concerns:
Healite’s blue wavelength is best used for the treatment of active acne and congested skin. Blue light is designed to kill off p.acnes bacteria, which is responsible for acne breakouts.
Healite’s red wavelength is ideal for stimulating the growth of collagen and elastin fibres. As such, red light effectively treats fine lines, skin laxity, scarring and poor skin texture. In addition, red light can help stimulate hair growth and active photosensitising agents.
Healite’s yellow wavelength works to calm inflammation, improve wound healing times, reduce bruising and minimise downtime. This makes yellow light the ideal choice for patients undergoing Healite as a complement to other treatments, following surgery, or to treat inflammatory conditions such as dermatitis, eczema, or psoriasis.
Healite treatments are highly comfortable and a great treatment alternative for people who are time-poor and searching for a calming treatment with little downtime. Treatments can be as short as 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the light wavelength, treatment purpose and treatment intensity.
The Healite device has a large, adjustable head, allowing us to deliver the treatment in a position that is most comfortable to you. Once we have cleansed and prepped your skin, we will apply the light to your face or body. You will not have to do anything besides sit back and relax.
You can return to your usual activities immediately after your Healite treatment. Depending on your skin concerns, you may benefit from a series of treatments. To maintain your skin’s health, regular Healite treatments are ideal.
