Regenerate Your Body: Managing Pain With Infrared Light

Understanding Pain

Getting to the bottom of how pain occurs, is felt, and ultimately is released is a tricky subject. There are various types of pain that are caused by a variety of factors. For example, burning pain is much different than sharp pain and in general people can suffer acute pain (short pain from a direct stimulus such as a cut) or chronic pain (lifelong and usually from a internal condition).

The way we sense and feel pain, however, is much simpler to understand. When we come in contact with a stimulus, such as a sharp object or a recurrence of chronic arthritic pain, our cells recognize it using receptors. The receptors then send a message to the brain through a nerve fibers that travel up the spine and to the  brain. Here, the signals are sent to various cortexes of the brain to trigger emotional and physical responses.

Managing Pain

Since pain is felt and responded to in a nearly infinite number of ways, the different approaches to pain management can be endless. When pain is very severe, it is always best to seek medical attention. For known, bearable pain such as discomfort, there are several ways people can mitigate the effects.

Temperature manipulation is a great low-cost option at home, such as using a cooling gel or a heating pad. Over the counter medications can also provide short-term relief. Once pain becomes chronic, however, the costs and side effects of medications can become difficult to bear. A fantastic new option for this is using LED infrared light therapy. By using light therapy, you can manage your pain, swelling, and stiffness in a healthy, side-effect, and drug free way for the rest of your life.

Using Infrared Light To Manage Your Pain

Light Therapy uses a combination of red and infrared light waves to penetrate the deepest layer of the skin cell. Once the skin cell has been penetrated, the warmth of the infrared LEDs stimulates the inner skin cell while the red LEDs reduce inflammation which in turn causes the pain to minimize and the healing time to hasten.

What makes light therapy a sound option for pain management treatments is that there are no side effects and no drugs involved. The contraindications are minimal, and therefore almost anyone can enjoy these treatments. In addition to this, light therapy sessions are typically offered in quiet office or spa locations and as such gives you access to a relaxing atmosphere while you work on feeling better.

Introducing – POLY

Since our beginning as UVBioTek, selling narrowband UV-B devices for psoriasis, eczema, and vitiligo, we have maintained a deep passion for providing people with safe, natural, reliable options for taking control of their health and appearance.

In 2016 we began our “Science of Light” project which was designed to leverage the inherent healing properties in light and find new and exciting ways to deliver new treatment options to the aesthetic and wellness marketplaces. This project has evolved to become the POLY project, which is now culminating in 2017 with the launch of our POLY system – and eventually our entire POLY product line. We are continuing our efforts to develop new systems to treat and manage a wide variety of conditions and hope you’ll be there with us on this exciting journey.

So what is POLY? POLY, short for polychromatic led therapy system, is our newest innovation in light therapy. POLY utilizes multiple wavelengths through interchangeable heads to deliver a variety of aesthetic and wellness treatment modalities. What makes POLY special is the one-of-a-kind 5-Panel FLEX design head. This design allows for the most efficacious treatment by having the ability to contour closely to the face or any part of the body. POLY is a sleek 60 pound system that can easily be wheeled from one area of the office to another and features an intuitive LCD touchscreen display.

POLY is more than its features, though. POLY is a reminder of what it means to be in the aesthetic industry today; the ability to adapt, the drive to evolve. Our system not only helps evolve your skincare lineup, but it helps you, as a provider of services, adapt to any situation to ensure every client has the options she or he needs. POLY integrates seamlessly with a wide variety of existing services, which means you can offer POLY to add value to your most popular treatments, or sell POLY treatments on their own. POLY helps you adapt and serves you and your clients in many different ways.

This is why we called our system POLY: it means many, and the spirit of ‘many’ is what drives our team to offer you the best in light therapy. We wanted to create something that was built for many skin types, designed to serve many functions, and work in many places. At the end of the day, POLY is for everyone – including you.
