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 […]
Light therapy with Healite involves the therapeutic use of LED lights to enhance your body’s natural cellular recovery.
This treatment can improve healing time, relieve pain, treat active acne, temporarily increase the circulation of blood throughout the body and promote skin rejuvenation (Chukuka S. Enwemeka, P.T. PhD. 2004). This LED light treatment has also shown promise when treating:
- Muscle and joint pain
- Muscle spasm
- Hair loss (regrowth)
Healite advanced technology
Healite utilises Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT) which enables our team to harness light in order to photomodulate cellular function which improves healing times and relieves pain. Photomodulation simply means the manipulation of cells using LLLT therapy – and for this Healite utilises LEDs. LEDs are used for their ability to deliver concentrated wavelengths of deep penetrating light, and with Healite you can rest assured that the light can be effectively applied, potentially eliminating the possibility of physical trauma and thermal damage.
With Healite the therapeutic outcome is maximised with the use of Optical Lens Array Technology (OLAT) using the latest generation of Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). 1800 of these advanced LEDs are used in Healite, providing concentrated light therapy to cells, organelles and target tissue in your body. Healite is advanced compared to other similar technologies, as it uses the highest quality LEDs available that are designed to disperse light evenly, with less light scattering. Light scattering can diffuse or improperly disperse the therapeutic energy which is why Healite is optimised to avoid this.
Fully adjustable for thorough treatment
Healite features a folding mechanism which is fitted with LEDs so that virtually any part of the body can be reached and treated. Dr Anh may curve the Healite head so that as much surface area as possible can be treated. This is perfect when treating areas of the body such as the face or the legs, where a curved area must be treated.
Is there any down time with Healite LLLT system?
Unlike some other laser treatments there is no downtime with this painless, relaxing, rejuvenating therapy treatment. The light energy will be absorbed by the cells beneath your skin so there will be virtually no noticeable effects of the treatment afterwards.
Visit Dr Anh and her helpful team of clinicians today so that they can perform Healite treatment on your area of concern or for overall body-cell improvement. If you have recently undergone surgery with our team, please ask us about Healite and how this can help you during your recovery period.
