Healite II uses light-based technology to reduce the signs of ageing such as lines and wrinkles. It is also used to soothe skin after plastic surgery procedures or treatments such as laser. This completely non-invasive low-level light therapy is a staple for many beauty clinics around Australia as a stand alone treatment for skin rejuvenation. For plastic surgeons, it is used as s a complementary treatment to surgical procedures. Dr Patrick Briggs, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon from WA and his clinic love their Healite II. We had a chat to them about how it works.
Rejuvenating, repairing and relaxing
Cosmetic Nurse Laura from Dr Briggs’ clinic says the Healite II is a patient favourite. “It provides an instant effect and has no downtime. It can be incorporated into all dermal treatments to elevate results and we recommend a session following dermal filler to increase healing and reduce swelling and bruising.” Laura says they also use it for pain relief including muscle and joint pain, skin rejuvenation and more! “Healite II LED therapy is rejuvenating, repairing and relaxing, offering a pain free and non-invasive treatment for all skin types. This effective form of light treatment allows us to increase hydration and firmness, reduce bacteria and breakouts and reverse the signs of ageing! The LED therapy delivers concentrated energy deep into your tissue, affecting your body at a cellular level, promoting cell turnover.”
How does the Healite II work?
The Healite II harnesses light energy and transmits this into the skin at specific wavelengths to assist oxygen and blood flow, circulation, stimulate collagen production and work to revive the skin at a cellular level. It leads to improved skin tone and texture, but also assists in treating several skin conditions including:
An even more amazing ability of the Healite II low-level light therapy treatment is that it is also able to treat muscle and joint pain including muscle spasms and in some cases arthritis. Laura explains, “There are different treatment heads each with a different treatment ability. For example, the yellow light treats things such as wounds and muscle and joint pain, as well as skin rejuvenation. The blue light is able to treat excessive growth of bacteria which is why it is often used to treat cases of acne.”
LED light therapy has been proven to increase skin cell growth speed by up to 200% when exposed to the correct wavelength of LED light. The beneficial effects of light based therapy is definitely underestimated and, for any of you looking for a less expensive yet effective way to improve your skin’s appearance and condition, the Healite II should be your first stop.
Laura says the really wonderful thing about offering the Healite II to their patients who’ve had a plastic surgery procedure is that it is great at reducing inflammation, redness, pain and swelling and helping with wound and tissue healing by increasing blood flow to the wound. This also assists in reducing bruising and scarring.
Laura says, “We have found it to be an incredible tool in the healing process of patients post-surgery.”
Healite II is Completely Affordable
While Healite II treatments range from patient to patient depending on the areas and concerns being treated and vary from clinic to clinic, the Healite II is really affordable and generally offered as part of a cosmetic treatment for approximately $70 – $160. Note: this price varies from clinic to clinic and patient to patient.
Laura says to keep in mind that the Healite II treatments can be combined with any other procedures or treatments – just ask them! If you’d like to find out more or book in with Dr Briggs’ clinic phone (08) 9381 9300 or to find your nearest Healite II stockist click here.
