Healite II is a second-generation Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy system that works by harnessing light energy and transmitting this into skin at particular wavelengths, targeting an array of skin concerns with amazing results.
Developed by Dr Glen Calderhead, the forefather of LED, Lutronic’s Healite II mobilises the properties of 830/590 light via LED technology. This non-ablative therapeutic system works at a cellular level so it actually stimulates biological changes in the body encouraging cells to work from the inside out.
Healite II assists in oxygen and blood flow, circulation and collagen production, while helping to remove toxins in the skin cells. This In turn triggers skin rejuvenation, improves skin tone, texture, reduces active acne scarring, wrinkles and photoageing, giving the skin a radiant, more vibrant and youthful looking glow.
It utilises a system called ‘optical lens array technology’ to concentrate the light energy and achieve faster, effective and consistent results for optimum skin regeneration with no downtime.
According to Dr Calderhead, studies have shown greater light concentration, over a shorter time period, induces a significantly higher increase in cell activity compared with other systems. Eleven minutes with Healite II, compared with 20 minutes with another system, is good for the patient and for the practitioner.
One of the most remarkable results of treatment with Healite II is the way it boosts the body’s natural reservoirs of anti-ageing constituents. When it targets fibroblasts (which produce collagen and elastin), Healite II doesn’t just improve skin structure but also boosts the reservoir of collagen-producing stem cells. Similarly, the near-infrared light triggers the release of antioxidants in the dermis, which provide protection against UV stress.
‘When the near-infrared light hits mast cells in the dermis, they release a product called Superoxide dismutase (SOD),’ Dr Calderhead says. ‘This is a super antioxidant that remains in the tissue for up to six months. The minute you’re exposed to some UV oxidative stress, the damaging effect is quenched because the SODs are waiting.’
