In a recent article written by the Australian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS), Dr Anh expresses that plastic surgeons are not solely responsible for body shaming issues. This article was written in response to the media frenzy about the issue of Specialist Plastic Surgeons’ social media being responsible for body image anxiety. In the […]
Relax in our Body Boost Bed. The Body Boost Bed utilises phototherapy to increase healing ability and skin elasticity.
The Body Boost Bed utilises LED light therapy to heal parts of the body, reduce pain and increase skin tightness. LEDs are used in ‘phototherapy’ where the specialised light activates the skin’s natural rejuvenation process for a smoother complexion. The benefits of the body boost bed include:
- Skin tightening and improved texture (Sommer et al, 2009)
- Improved energy (Marshall Space Flight Center , 2000)
- Reduced pain and inflammation (Berg, J. Braukus, M. 2003)
These benefits can then provide treatment for more specific problems such as redness, scarring, post-operative conditions and even sporting injuries. The effectiveness of this treatment will depend largely on the condition being treated as well as your body’s natural response to the treatment.
Light Emitting Diode (LED) Technology for rejuvenation
The Body Boost Bed combines red, blue and infra-red LEDs for treatment that encompasses a variety of different benefits. The deep penetrating lights of the Body Boost Bed can inspire a range of cellular changes. The Body Boost Bed has minimal adverse effects (Lee S.Y et al, 2007) and can provide rejuvenation and healing.
Blue LEDs assist in the healing of inflammation, burns and fevers, as well as headaches. They are said to provide a thorough calming effect. Blue LEDs also penetrate in wavelengths that eradicate acne-causing bacteria which can result in a rejuvenated skin texture and appearance.
Red LEDs produce collagen and elastin which are the regenerative factors within your skin that maintain a youthful appearance. This LED can also provide anti-inflammatory benefits which means less pain and redness. This therapy is also appropriate when treating rosacea (or chronic redness of the cheeks).
Infrared LEDs treat the muscles – reducing spasms, joint pain, stiffness, arthritis and even circulation (Chukuka S. Enwemeka, P.T. PhD. 2004). Due to the treatment of muscles this LED is suitable for overall relaxation.
The Body Boost Bed Experience
The Body Boost Bed is a full-sized ‘bed’ that does not emit any thermic energy (it does not get hot). You can rest comfortably as you lay down from head to toe in our Body Boost Bed, receiving LED treatment for overall improvement of your skin, muscles and other body tissue.
From dermatological benefits to healing, the Body Boost Bed is an all-encompassing treatment. Your suitability will be assessed during your consultation. We recommend visiting Dr Anh Nguyen and her team to see if you are an ideal candidate today.
