Light Room is equipped with International technology based PUVA Chamber, PDT & LED Laser, Low Level Laser Therapy machines for Skin & Hair related disease with prescribed treatment to get excellent results.
PUVA is an acronym. The P stands for psoralen, the U for ultra, the V for violet, and the A for that portion of the solar spectrum between 320 and 400 nanometers in wavelength. Psoralens are chemicals found in certain plants that have the ability to absorb ultraviolet light in the UVA portion of the solar spectrum. Once the light energy is absorbed, these chemicals are energized to interact with DNA, ultimately inhibiting cell multiplication, which is their presumed mode of action.
Certain skin diseases are characterized by cells that are rapidly multiplying. Inhibiting this unrestrained multiplication can be useful in treating these diseases. So PUVA is a combination of an oral drug and subsequent ultraviolet light exposure. The treatment may affect certain blood cells and skin cells so that the skin disease improves.
PUVA therapy is beneficial in more than twenty different diseases and it appears to act via at least two different mechanisms:
1. Killing of Cells in Skin
A number of skin disorders appear to be produced by cells from the immune (defense) system of the body. These cells are either multiplying too rapidly or behaving in an abnormal manner. PUVA treatment selectively kills off these cells and, fortunately, it can do this without producing any clinical evidence of harm to our normal immunity. Psoriasis, eczema, lichen planus, alopecia and mycosis fungoides are a few of the diseases that appear to respond to PUVA therapy via this mechanism.
2. Production of Increased Resistance to Sunlight
PUVA therapy induces increased pigmentation in the skin and also increases the thickness of the epidermis. Both these effects diminish sensitivity to sunlight by decreasing the amount of ultraviolet light entering the deeper layers of the skin. This appears to be the mechanism whereby PUVA treatment is beneficial in disorders characterized by heightened sensitivity to sunlight, such as polymorphous light eruption and solar urticaria. The response of vitiligo to PUVA therapy is also partly due to this effect, but in addition PUVA is probably also affecting the function of immune cells in this disorder.
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
For stimulation of hair growth Red light (in the spectrum of 630-670 nanometres & low power) has been found most effective with good results. Hair comb laser is effectual treatment for hair loss & beneficial co-treatment for Alopecia.
- Increases ATP to deliver more energy to the follicle
- Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) energizes weakened hair follicles
- Increase blood flow to the scalp
- Helps take away harmful waste products such as DHT
- Helps decrease follicular inflammation
- Works as an anagen inductor which stimulates the natural growth of hairs.
Non-Invasive PDT / LED Light Therapy
1) Red light
The red light’s wavelength is 630 mm,it has the characteristics of high purity,strong light source,energy density well-proportioned,has notable effects in skin care,health care and cure,named as biologic active light. The red light can enhance the cells activity,promote cells metabolism,make skin excrete large number of collagen protein and fiber tissue to fill on their own; accelerate blood circulation,increase skin elasticity and improve withered and yellow,dark condition skin. Then achieve the efficacy of anti-aging,anti-oxidation and repairing skin, has a effect that traditional skin care can not comparable. It is especially useful for people in sub healthy state,dry skin and allergic skin. What’s more,the nursing process is simple and convenient,comfortable,moderate and effective.
Whitening and lighten spot, tendering skin and dispel crinkles, repair damaged skin, heal slender wrinkles, tighten pore, and proliferate collagen protein.
Has a wavelength as 415mm. the blue light has the effects of restrain inflammation, acne is mainly caused by acid bacillus; the blue-light can destruct these bacteria with no injury to skin tissue, decrease acne as much as possible, decrease and cure acne during inflammation period in very short time.
Advice for period of treatment
Once every three days, 15 minutes each time
3) Purple light
Red and blue light is the dual-band light; it combines both the effectiveness of light therapy, especially useful in treating and repairing acne and acne-scars
4) Yellow light
Supply energy for skin cells, promote gland effect, assist digestion, cure skin diseases and enhance immunity ability
5) Green light
Has the effects of neutralization, balancing and calming, it can ease strain, dredge lymph and useful in edema elimination.
6) Orange light
Increase cells energy in proper sequence, it can accelerate metabolism effectively.
7) Laser light
Penetrate deep layer of skin, accelerate active tissue metabolism, decompose splash, improve fine lines and flabby skin.
