As we all age, our skin loses some its ability to heal and reconstruct itself. Components such as collagen and elastin, necessary in maintaining the physical appearance and vitality of skin, decreases in production; scar tissue, toxins and waste build-up (acne, wrinkles, sunspots, hyper-pigmentation, etc.) increases the appearance of physical flaws.
Varying frequencies of low-level infrared and visible red light give the skin the necessary aid to reduce these, and many other, signs of aging. These wavelengths of light can also help reduce scarring, and patients requiring pain management and would healing, of all shapes, sizes, age, and colors of skin. Some patients with heat/light sensitivity from medications or medical problems may require means to reduce heat to the skin but can still use the LIGHTWAVE system since the heat output is very minimal.
