How iinnLight Modulated Photon Therapy Works

Over the last five years a highly credentialed R&D team known to iinnLight Technologies, Inc., has consulted with top researchers in the fields of Phototherapy, LED and Low Level Laser Therapy in Europe, Russia, China, Japan and the US to develop state-of-the-art phototherapy devices that are both safe and effective.

iinnLight modulated photon therapy technology has been designed to bathe the body or part of thebody in a field of radiant energy that consists of the specific biological wavelengths and frequencies that promote repair and rejuvenation at molecular and cellular levels. Through proprietary computer technology, these wavelengths and frequencies are delivered with the latest advances in LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) and are completely safe.

A proprietary matrix of rejuvenating energies then stimulates positive biological functions, which the user experiences as both restful and energizing.
iinnLight users consistently report positive cosmetic benefits along with a sense of heightened wellbeing, increased mental clarity and a sensation of profound stress relief. This technology also works very well for reduction in aches and pains.

Scientifically iinnLight systems stimulate the following three levels of effects that are set in motion as the light energy is transmitted through the skin.   

1. Photomechanical Effect
Photons of light penetrate the skin colliding with the molecules of the body tissues below the skin’s surface. There are approximately ten thousand collisions or bounces before the photon has given up its energy. We call this effect the iinnLight “molecular massage” which has an amazing relaxing effect on the muscles, joints and tissues. This also enables the release of toxins and promotes a sensation of profound stress reduction at a very deep level.

2. Photothermal Effect -
This “molecular massage” generates heat by vibrating the molecules of the tissue and this relaxes of the tissues allowing the capillaries to dilate. Therefore blood flow with nutrients and oxygen is increased to the tissues of the body and a revitalizing systemic effect is achieved.

3. Photoelectric Effect -
The photons of light then deliver an electric charge raising the capacitance potential of the cells (recharging the cells like a battery) stimulating repair and regeneration.

 Tech Notes on LEDs  
  • LEDs (light emitting diodes) are a new generation of micro chips that generate electromagnetic energy in the form of radiant light in a specific range.
  • LEDs do not in themselves generate Heat, giving a much longer service life and require far less electricity to operate.
  • Lasers get hot, are expensive and only give out one wavelength of light energy.
  • LEDs are preferable to Lasers because they can be adapted to generate multiple wavelengths at a much lower cost and are more efficient for treating tissues.
  • Lasers are like one note on a violin. iinnLight’s LED system is like having the whole orchestra

iinnLight uses three wavelengths of light energy and mixes them in a proprietary program for an
enhanced effect:

Red: 630nm-640nm
These wavelengths penetrate deep into the sub dermal layers and are great for tissue regeneration.

Yellow: 590nm
This wavelength does not penetrate as deeply, but has been shown to stimulate collagen production This wavelength does not penetrate as deeply, but has been shown to stimulate collagen production for a noticeable softening of wrinkles and improvement of skin tone.

 Blue: 420nm-450 nm
These wavelengths have an anti-bacterial effect on skin and can be used for skin conditions like acne. These are also very calming wavelengths stimulating the body to create serotonin and melatonin,helping the body to reset its biological clock. They are also used to treat SAD (seasonal effect disorder)

Scientifically this works because different biological molecules in tissue absorb different wavelengths of light becoming “photo activated”. Some 40 years ago it was discovered that Light absorbing molecules use different wavelengths of light as a signaling mechanism for cellular processes. With iinnLight’s proprietary delivery system these wavelengths of light energy effecting cellular processes can stimulated, enhanced and controlled. Such as: 

  • improved oxygen and nutrient delivery
  • increased blood and lymph flow
  • collagen production leading to faster tissue regeneration and wrinkle reduction
  • stimulating the activity of immune and repair cells
  • increased cellular energy by recharging cell membranes and mitochondria (the engine of each cell)
  • increased RNA & DNA synthesis
  • the proper wavelengths of light energy have been shown to be a nutrient to the human body   

Safety of Photon therapy
Photon therapy has been studied extensively in Europe and the US for over thirty years and has been the subject of over 3,000 scientific papers, published worldwide. There are no reported negative side effects to the therapy, which is painless, non-toxic and compliments many traditional therapies. In 1991, the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development along with the National Institute of Neurologic Disorders and Stroke declared photon therapy to be safe.

Photon therapy is non-invasive and considered safe enough to be used in the Milwaukee Children's Hospital in Wisconsin to energize cells and prevent growth of chemo-induced mouth sores that keep patient's from eating. Dr. Harry T. Whelan has successfully treated wounds, third degree burns and
brain cancer. Dr. Whelan is the photon therapy consultant to NASA.

NASA is planning to install photon therapy systems in the international space station because in the zero gravity of space astronaut’s muscles atrophy and wounds heal much slower than on earth. Although a relatively new cutting edge science, phototherapy has made the cover of national and international publications:

· National Geographic (January 2001)
· Popular Science magazine (April 2000)
· Biophotonics International (October 2000)
