Photobiomodulation therapy is defined as the utilization of non-ionizing photonic energy to trigger photochemical changes within cellular structures that are receptive to photons, particularly mitochondria. In short it is the use of light (phot0) to modulate living (bio) systems.At the cellular level, visible red and near infrared light energy are absorbed by mitochondria. Mitochondria as you are all aware perform the function of producing cellular energy called “ATP”. This is facilitated by a mitochondrial enzyme called cytochrome oxidase c, a chromophore, which accepts photonic energy of specific wavelengths and becomes more defective at turning the fuel we eat into ATP.
Photobiomodulation also triggers reactive oxygen species to be created, which captures free radicals and encourages cellular repair and healing.
At conquest health in our mission to bring you the best we use devices from two companies which are backed by research and are actively expanding areas for future research in PBM.
The first device is JOOVV which uses red light therapy and NIR alone or in combination at wavelength that is shown to be most optimally absorbed by our mitochondriaEnzymes . It comes in a manageable size which can be used for targeted treatment on parts of the body or the face.
The other reputable device we also use, mostly to help with brain enhancing is Vielight. This device comes with a small intranasal prove which helps to deliver light directly to the brain through the nose and through certain areas of the skull. This device uses only near infrared light and helps to boost cognitive function
How does it work?
The light treatment’s impact on your mitochondria releases nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is an important chemical used by your cells to communicate with one another, a key signaling molecule. Nitric oxide also dilates your blood vessels and improves circulation while playing an important role in maintaining healthy blood pressure levels and keeping your arteries relaxed
In summary evidence shows that PBM May decrease inflammation, improve recovery from injury, promote youthful skin and reduce appearance of scars , help in inflammatory skin disorders like acne and psoriasis , enhance cognitive function and even help in degenerative neurological diseases like alzheimer and Parkinson disease
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Based on your needs we design a protocol for you which would entail sessions of photomodulation
The treatment usually lasts no more than 20 minutes and cost 100
pound per session
To further enhance the results of the photomodulation therapy especially when used for skin ageing we provide specific formulation such as specific skin peels or skin masks.
This can also be combined with IV therapy to further enhance results
WHAT WE ARE ABOUT
Most doctors are trained to think about the underlying cause of disease. At Conquest Health we pride ourselves in our unique system-oriented, patient-focused model to help optimise your health. Conventional medicine is the medicine of what. We at Conquest Health, seek to answer the question of why.
