Light therapy is an easy-to-use therapy that has a wide range of applications. The primary uses are for facials, healing wounds, and reducing scar tissue. Skin irritations also benefit from light therapy, such as rashes, acne, fungus-related skin problems, and more. Other times light therapy is beneficial include, but are not limited to, treating arthritis, after a surgery, relieving sore muscles, reducing pain and inflammation (i.e. tendons and ligaments), and stimulating acupoints along the Chinese Meridians. Also, light therapy is an ideal tool if your skin is extremely sensitive, because it does not have to come in direct contact with the skin during treatments.

There are many light devices on the market, and a high-quality unit with added frequencies usually produces better results than devices with only light.

How Light Therapy Works

The red and infrared light diodes are absorbed by the skin, muscles, tissues, and bone, as well as working at the cellular level by raising white blood cell count. The result is improved cell growth, DNA synthesis, and protein synthesis in cells. Light therapy also helps enhance blood circulation, increase oxygen supply, stimulate collagen production, and strengthen skin tissues.

Types Of Light Devices

There are two types of light therapy devices: LED (light emitting diodes) and low level LASER (light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation). Both types affect the body's biological systems, ultimately providing pain relief and enhancing healing for wounds, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. There is a wide range of conditions and benefits associated with light therapy, with only a few mentioned here.

Although there are many light therapy devices on the market, based on price-quality ratio Matrix only offers two models - the Equilux and the Matrix SL-50 Laser. The Equilux is an LED (light emitting diodes) device and the Matrix Laser has clusters of laser diodes (4 infrared, 8 red). Also, both the Equilux and the Matrix SL-50 are FDA approved for human use.
