LED light therapy is available to help with pain management, anti-aging, and hair loss and can be combined with other treatments to help encourage healing and recovery.
While the science behind the treatment is highly technical, the procedure itself is quite simple! Patients simply relax for a short session, about 30 minutes in length, and leave feeling refreshed. Depending on your present condition and your health and wellness goals, we may recommend 1-3 sessions or more for maximal results.
Through the uniform delivery of light energy, the cells absorb energy successfully, boosting the body’s natural cycle of generating energy at a cellular level. When your body has enough available ATP (the specific energy the cells use), it can afford to spend more of its energy on those processes which restore and heal the body.It is the combination of these processes occurring successfully within the system that results in anti-aging and other benefits such as:
- Cells regenerating to replace out old cells (mitosis)
- Increasing blood flow
- New neurons being generated
- Preventing the death of healthy cells
- And more
At Sage Nutrition, we focus on helping our patients look and feel their best through natural, non-invasive treatments that work to rejuvenate the body and speed recovery from painful conditions. These provide an alternative treatment option to risky surgery, other invasive procedures, and medications that come with countless side effects. Find out if you are a candidate.
LED Light Therapy for Pain Management
Did you know that light therapy was initially developed by NASA engineers? They were looking for a solution to treat injuries and manage pain on long-term missions in space, and lucky for us, this is a treatment many people on earth get to benefit from daily.
If you are suffering from joint or muscle pain, such as inflammation, arthritis, or injury, LED light therapy for pain management may help. By using exact wavelengths that have been proven to stimulate a natural healing response within the body, circulation can be increased, tissue can be repaired, and overall soreness, stiffness, and other pain can be alleviated. The body’s natural healing process is encouraged through this process.
The advanced LED light therapy technology we use at Sage Nutrition is a combination of red light, blue light, and infrared light therapy and allows for more cell absorption than most devices out there. This means maximum restorative potential for you! A typical session is just 30 minutes, and many patients report feeling the benefits immediately.
Low-Level Light Therapy for Hair Loss & Anti-Aging
Two of the most important components to maintaining a youthful appearance are elastin and collagen, both of which are produced by a type of cell called a fibroblast. Through the natural aging process, we have lower levels of fibroblasts. Effects of reduced fibroblast proteins can show up as inflammation, soreness, stiffness, increased recovery time after activity, less elasticity in the skin, and the appearance of wrinkles or the dreaded fine lines.
When you have a high, healthy level of collagen in the system, you might notice benefits like joints and tendons that feel good, healthy hair, and firm and radiant skin, for starters.
Low-level light therapy (LLLT) increases fibroblast proliferation, giving the system more of those healthy fibroblasts it needs to create collagen fibers and elastin.
