Polychromatic light therapy (PLT) is the simultaneous use of two or more wavelengths of light (color) provided by light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Researchers call the biological effects of PLT photobiomodulation (PBM).
PLT delivered via light-emitting diodes at various wavelengths penetrates tissue to different depths and is naturally absorbed by the cells to assist in the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the energy required for cell repair and regeneration. Researchers hypothesize the unique benefit of polychromatic light is the synergistic effect of infrared (IR) with either blue or red allowing both colors to penetrate tissue more deeply than in a monochromatic application. PLT energy application also facilitates the release of nitric oxide, supporting the body with improved circulation. Improved circulation (blood flow) is one of the most vital components of the healing process.
Light, whether from the sun or from technology, is absorbed by the skin and triggers beneficial biological changes at the cellular level. These changes are unique to PBM, that is, unmatched by any other medical intervention. Inlight’s PLT therapy pad designs allow you to target the area of concern. PLT LED light energy is a valuable tool in restoring and improving health and vitality.
Many people with symptoms of pain or impaired circulation associated with the following conditions experience positive results from using polychromatic light therapy:
The more we understand the value of increasing circulation to our tissues, the easier it is to understand how and why low-level polychromatic light therapy supports the body’s innate healing processes regardless of the condition. And, why PLT provides a wealth of additional health benefits that support full-body wellness.
