Skin Rejuvenating Phototherapy

The industry as we know it is changing.

Emphasis is leaning toward skin rejuvenation; Specifically, red light phototherapy with Collagen Lamps, proven to revitalize and rejuvenate the skin. The rising demand for this new technology had lead ProSun to develop several new skin rejuvenation options: SR and SR-Plus options for rejuvenating while you tan, and ASR models comprised entirely of skin rejuvenating lamps, to rejuvenate your entire body — specifically designed for the beauty spa industry.

These specially designed models are set
up entirely with red light collagen lamps: Long lamps for the body, and high intensity LED panels for the face. A favorite for spas whose patrons shy away from tanning, the ASR models concentrate on only one thing: making the whole body look younger with smoother and healthier skin.

The SR-Plus panel is our commercial
grade skin rejuvenation solution. We replace our usual high pressure facial lamps with dense panels of high-intensity red light collagen LEDs. The result is a more penetrating light that speeds up the rejuvenation process.

The Jade and Onyx SR models are
equipped with smaller integrated red phototherapy lamps, set between the tanning lamps. These lamps, while not as effective as the SR-Plus panels, are still very effective, and will rejuvenate the user's facial area while also bestowing upon them a healthy tan.

Benefits of Red Light Collagen Lamps

  • Minimizes fine lines and wrinkles
  • Activates fibroblast cells which create collagen and elastin
  • Improves skin tone
  • Creates more skin moisture for a more youthful appearance
  • Increases circulation to the skin
  • Heals blemishes
  • Helps repair sun-damaged skin
Using red light collagen lamps four (4) 15 minute sessions a week for 3 weeks then once per week for another 4 weeks creates a noticeable reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, facial blemishes and crow's feet.

The light was originally studied by NASA and has been shown to stimulate fibroblasts which causes an increase in collagen and elastin, restoring the skin to its more supple state.

Photo rejuvenation has been available for several years at spas but has been too expensive for many people until now. Salons can now offer this service for a fraction of the price.

This light stimulation photo rejuvenation system penetrates into the skin to repair damaged tissue, diminish lines, creases, furrows and crow's feet. It refines pore size and skin texture without peels, surgery or injections. Phototherapy has been known to fade age spots, and control melasma and hyper pigmentation.

Summary of Medical Studies

Dr. Robert Calderhead, DrMedSci, FRSM, medical advisor to Photo therapeutics states “When effective wavelengths are aimed at the photobiomodulation (low level laser therapy) zone, skin cells remain alive and unharmed, but they receive an energy boost from the direct, a thermal exchange of energy between photons and cell components. This can help repair damaged cells. The 640nm is the most commonly used wavelength for skin rejuvenation.”

Dr. Mary Dyson at Guy's Hospital in London, England showed that “red light collagen lamps at 633nm increased the synthesis of fibroblast growth factor from macrophage cells.”

Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City combined blue and red light collagen lamp therapy with Microdermabrasion on 22 subjects with mild to severe facial acne vulgaris. Subjects were given eight (8) twenty (20) minute sessions, twice a week, alternating between blue and red light collagen lamps, subjects were also given microdermabrasion before each session. The lesion count was reduced by 46% at four (4) weeks, and by 81% at twelve (12) weeks.

Dr. Mitchell Chasin, Medical Director of Reflections Center for Skin and Body in Livingston, New Jersey states “with LED you will see a decrease in postoperative redness.”

Dr. Mitchell Goldman, clinical professor of dermatology at the University of California San Diego and medical director at La Jolla Spa MD, La Jolla, CA states “LED treatments work well after any procedure that causes erythema (redness) and irritation, including chemical peels, lasers and IPL.

Dr. Goldman recently completed a study using LED in conjunction with IPL (intense pulse light) treatments, which has been accepted for publication by the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology. Fifteen (15) patients received IPL treatments; one side of each patient's face was treated by LED, with the other side left untreated. The results showed a significant improvement in erythema (redness) and irritation with the addition of LED.

Dr. Tina Alster of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery, Washington DC, states “ LED treatments used with Fraxel laser, show a reduction in healing time of as much as 50%.”

A selection of studies

Thirteen (13) subjects with fine lines, wrinkles and photodamage, received nine (9) 20 minute treatments over a five (5) week period. Sun damage at six (6) weeks the majority displayed a 25-50% improvement at twelve (12) weeks: 91% reported enhanced smoothness. J Photobiology, April 2007

Seventy-six (76) subjects were divided into four (4) groups. Treatments were given twice a week for four (4) weeks. Researchers measured the skin for elasticity and melanin during the treatment period and for three (3) months following the treatments. Results showed a significant reduction of wrinkles (maximum 36%) and an increase of skin elasticity (maximum 19%). There was a marked increase in the amount of collagen and elastin fibers with highly activated fibroblast cells.

Dr. Harry T. Whelan, Professor of Neurology, Pediatrics and Hyperbaric Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin, found that diabetic skin ulcers and other wounds healed much faster when exposed to LEDs. Lab research has shown that the LEDs also grow human muscle and skin cells up to five (5) times faster than normal. The study, funded by NASA will examine the effects on diabetic skin ulcers, serious burns and flesh wounds caused by radiation and chemotherapy treatments. Dr. Whelan also states “The near-infrared light emitted by these LEDs seems to be perfect for increasing energy inside cells. LEDs boost energy to the cells and accelerate healing.”
