LED PHOTOTHERAPHY
LED or Light Emitting Diode therapy is known for its ability to accelerate the skin’s healing process. Skin cells receive a rejuvenating, anti-aging boost increasing blood flow, helping bring nutrients to the treated areas, as well as stimulating fibroblast and collagen production to strengthen your skin and battle the ageing process. Ant yage is the most advanced and powerful LED phototherapy medical device available to treat a broad range of concerns.

How Does Antyage Work?

Antyage LED takes advantage of the tremendous ‘photo modulating’ potential offered by Light Emitting Diodes ‘LEDs’ in order to cure or significantly improve the patient’s condition in multiple cases. Developed with the most advanced RGB LEDs, Antyage LED utilises the full spectrum of useful lights (from RGB up to infrared). Combinations of light type and strength are pre-programmed to treat the relevant skin concern.

The light therapy is a technique that uses light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Pure, optimised light emitted by the device allows to execute the treatments, even on the large areas, with no need of direct contact to the skin. Therapy with chink of light is non-invasive, painless and completely safe for the patients. There is no side effect such as redness, flaking or blistering.

Mode of action:
Light reaches the light receptor into the mitochondria, called “cytochrome c oxidase”. The final processes of glucose metabolism have a place inside the mitochondria. The glucose reacts with the oxygen, supplied by the red corpus, and as the result it starts the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the cellular energy fomite.

This mechanism makes protons to move on and produce the water and an ATP as well. These sequential reactions are the cycle of the cell’s respiration. The stimulation of fibroblast makes increased production of collagen and elastin. The elasticity of the skin increases, and the wrinkles are noticeably reduced. Light also has an anti-inflammatory function, it can impact on the body’s immunity in positive way, and it also contributes to body’s recovery. Therefore, the light therapy helps in treatments of acne, stretch marks, rosacea, varicose veins, age spots, herpes simplex, psoriasis, varicose ulcers and wrinkles. It also plays very interesting role to body’s healing and stimulation of hair growth.

Mechanism of the light influence for the skin:

The red led light reaches the fibroblasts, which are responsible for collagen's synthesis, elastin's synthesis, such as synthesis of hyaluronic acid. Red led light strip accelerates the healing process, enhances the effects of invasive laser treatments, plastic and general surgery, mesotherapy, peeling and microdermabrasion. It also boosts cell activity, accelerates metabolism, stimulates the skin to produce collagen proteins, and it prompts a retardation to necrose of the already existing collagen. It is extremely effective with ulcers treating, inflammatory conditions of the skin and wrinkles reduction. It also removes the signs of sun exposure.

Blue light inhibits the development of inflammatory conditions. It accelerates a wounds and bruises healing. It heals acne with the moderate level. It is used in specialised tooth whitening kits. It is necessary in many combined therapies. It is used, in combination with the red light, for the cystic acne's treatment. It is also used, combined with 5-Ala and Chlorophyll, for anti-acne and keratosis treatments.

Yellow light: The maximum absorption of this wave occurs in haemoglobin and melanin. Haemoglobin molecules are becoming more actively involved in the exchange of oxygen and CO2. Yellow light reduces melanin spots, telangiectasia, stretch marks and red postoperative scars.

ANTYAGE LED® utilises the great “photo-modular” potential, offered by Light-Emitting diodes (LEDS) to treat various skin conditions and improve the patient's health. The device is equipped with the most advanced RGB LEDS lamps. ANTY AGE® permits to do various treatments, using a variety of light sources (from UVB to black light).

One of the most common indications for using the LED therapy is acne vulgaris, in particular paraffinic papillae, but also severe cysts. Clinical studies have demonstrated similar antibacterial and anti-inflammatory efficacy as oral antibiotics and, in some cases, it is comparable to oral isotretinoin therapy. Blue light has an inhibitory effect on the growth of the bacteria Propionibacterium acnes (light-absorbing porphyrins) - one of the factors responsible for the developing acne.

Red light influences the immune response, reducing the inflow of inflammatory cells. As a result, inflammation (pimples, cysts) heal faster. LED therapy can be consociated with topical anti-acne medications (e.g. Benzoyl peroxide, azelaic acid, retinoids).
It is not recommended to combine it with tetracyclines and oral isotretinoin.
Treatment Protocol:
1) Skin preparation: removal of makeup and impurities, installation of protective goggles.
2) Light treatment – illuminate variable areas with led for approximately for 10 minutes.
Therapy includes 2 treatments a week, for 4 weeks, which in total is 8 treatments.
