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 […]
The Body Boost Bed utilises LED light therapy to heal and improve aspects of the body.
LEDs are used in ‘phototherapy’ where the specialised light activates the skin’s natural rejuvenation process which can affect the appearance of ageing as well as the muscles, cartilage and more.
The benefits of light therapy can include:
- Improved energy (Marshall Space Flight Center , 2000)
- Improved healing ability due to the regenerative effects (Berg, J. Braukus, M. 2003)
- Increased elasticity of the skin and facial rejuvenation (Sommer et al, 2009)
- Decreased cellulite
These benefits can then provide treatment for more specific problems such as redness, scarring, post-operative conditions and even sporting injuries. Other issues the Body Boost Bed can address include:
- Muscular and joint function (Chukuka S. Enwemeka, P.T. PhD. 2004)
- Eczema (please consult your doctor about treatment for this)
- Hormonal problems
- Other dermatological conditions
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 which can improve your appearance and quality of life. The Body Boost Bed provides gentle and safe therapy (Lee S.Y et al, 2007), where light is converted into cellular energy by your very own cells within your body. This energy is then harnessed to provide rejuvenation, healing and overall improvement.
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. Due to the treatment of muscles this LED is suitable for overall relaxation, as well as lymphatic drainage and metabolism.
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.
