Red Light Routine
Your first treatment should be 5 minutes to check for any sensitivity.
After that you can increase to full time.
Sessions should be 3x a week, no more frequent than every other day (going more won't give any extra benefits and may build up your resistance to red light) for the first 1-3 months.
After that treatments should be one time weekly to maintain!
Red light is a very weak light and doesn't penetrate without a boost, make sure to ask us what products to use in your routine to help absorb and keep the light working between sessions!!
The POLY - The Science of Light
Since POLY's beginning as UVBioTek, selling narrowband UV-B devices for psoriasis, eczema, and vitiligo, they have maintained a deep passion for providing people with safe, natural, reliable options for taking control of their health and appearance. In 2016 they began their “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 their entire POLY product line. They are continuing their 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. In the meantime, please read on see exactly how the science of light is currently working to change people’s lives.
Red light at 633 nanometers has a long enough wavelength to penetrate the epidermis (outermost layer of the skin) and reach the dermis (the middle layer of the skin). This enables it to reach fibroblasts, special types of cells that sit beneath the skin and manufacture collagen – a protein that helps tighten and firm the skin and heal wounds. Red light does this by acting on the mitochondria inside fibroblasts. Mitochondria are small organelles that exist inside most of the cells in your body. They produce the cell’s energy by absorbing oxygen and other materials, as well as by producing a molecule called ATP. Exposing the mitochondria to red light at 633nm causes a number of changes in mitochondria, particularly, it increases the mitochondrial membrane potential, allowing the mitochondria to receive signals faster. Red light also causes an increase in the production of ATP. Mitochondria produce ATP by a process called the “electron transport chain.” One enzyme involved in that process is ‘cytochrome c oxidase.’ Cytochrome c oxidase is also a “chromophore”; i.e, a molecule that responds to the presence of light. Since cytochrome c oxidase is a necessary part in making cellular energy, and since it is stimulated by the presence of red light at 633nm, it will respond by increasing the production of cellular energy. This increases the activity of the cells themselves, and therefore causes the fibroblasts in the skin to produce more collagen to firm, tighten, and improve the overall appearance of the treated area.
