as an efficient prevention of photo-aging

Our physical appearance depends largely on the state of our skin. It is a very vital organ, that separates the internal environment of the organism from the external environment and blocks elements that should not leave the organism – thus, it ensures homeostasis.

Ageing skin is characterised by clearly visible morphological changes like wrinkles, pigmentation disorders, telangiectasia (small subcutaneous dilated blood vessels) and the loss of elasticity. It is the result of aging or systemic diseases). Ageing skin is a cosmetic defect.

This defect leads to unattractive appearance and functional imbalance of the organism, e.g. water-electrolyte imbalance. Aging skin impedes optimal hydration of the face and the whole body. The listed negative effects are largely results of the photo-ageing process.

The main, external factor leading to photo-ageing and the stimulation of negative neoplastic processes within the skin is the ultraviolet radiation of sunlight. It is potentiated by the ozone depletion, which decreases the natural atmospheric protection against UV radiation.

People frequenting tanning salons are especially prone to suffer from negative and harmful effects of UV light and rapid skin ageing (through an increased risk of neoplasia). A solution to these problems could be found in skin photorejuvenation. A selectively chosen wavelength and a measured dose of light is used in old skin “rejuvenation”, preventing progressive aging and treating the changes caused by aging skin. Continuous technological progress and medical research regarding light-based treatments lead to the definition of therapeutic factors and the construction of devices that are used in skin photorejuvenation. The current treatment methods employ modern medical technology to generate electromagnetic radiation that makes efficient and safe photorejuvenation possible. LED therapy has recently been proved to be efficient in cosmetology. Such treatments can be administered through the use of Viofor JPS System devices that enable the irradiation of the whole face. It is a non-invasive, safe method that allows for an even, simultaneous application of light at selected, therapeutic wavelengths – 630 and 855 nm

Positive medical and aesthetic effects of photo-rejuvenation The LED therapy activates the absorption of specific wavelength light through photo-acceptor particles. The exposure of photo-acceptor generates the production of cytotoxic singlet oxygen and cascading processes leading to photo-biomodulation. Clinical tests have proved major aesthetic improvements after the treatments.

Positive effects of LED Therapy:

●      increased skin elasticity
●      evening out of eye folds
●      removal of macules and lesion
●      removal of calluses
●      closing of pores
●      improved skin hydration
The achieved cosmetic effects result from improved oxygenation and blood circulation within the skin, an increase of the number of elastic and collagen fibrils and better absorption and retention of water by the skin. All have been documented in scientific publications. The effects were proved by profilometric tests, wrinkle measurements and digital and laboratory benchmarking of collagen synthesis.
Methodology and treatment parameters Specialist research quotes most frequently:
●     a cycle of 12 treatments,
●     2 times a week,
●     10-20 minutes for each treatment,
●     no active personnel required.
can substitute other, efficient but invasive cosmetology treatments like laser therapy or chemical peeling. It is worth noting that LED therapy treatments carry no risk of dangerous and unacceptable complication like edemas, infections, scarring and pigmentation disorders arising from a delayed or abnormal healing, as well as prolonged erythema frequently appearing after alternative treatments.
Using LED therapy after cosmetic surgery bring rapid disappearance of erythema, edema and hematoma caused by the operation, decreasing the time required for healing and achieving a satisfactory aesthetic effect. Results coming from Polish cosmetic and re-constructive surgery wards confirm the positive effects of using Viofor JPS System in LED therapy of postoperative patients.
Another cosmetology and dermatology issue is the treatment of acne. According to clinical testing, LED therapy is a potential method of treating acne in any stage (from moderate to heavy). A paper by doctor Lee discussing the decrease of acne lesions after LED therapy describes very satisfactory results (with the average reduction in lesions after 12 weeks of treatment reaching 81%). Comparable results (78%) were achieved with patients suffering from acne caused by inflammation.
LED therapy is an efficient, safe and painless method of treating common acne, especially of inflammatory etiology.
The effect of LED therapy in treating patients with recalcitrant psoriasis
Scientific journals note that treated lesions after a therapy lasting from 3 to 8 months disappeared with a ratio from 60% to 100%. The authors define the efficiency of LED therapy as “very high”. The therapy is easy to administer, involves no pain, has no side effects and is generally tolerated very well by the patients.
The effect of LED therapy in treating erythrasma.
A single- or multiple-treatment red light irradiation of patients with erythrasma (surface bacterial skin inflammation) resulted in the complete disappearance or major decrease of skin lesions. The authors emphasize the high efficiency and good tolerance of the treatment. Suggested treatments can be a good, cheap and easy method of treating bacterial infections causing erythrasma.
