Light Therapy Lamps Offer Many Healing Benefits

LS post 65

Therapy using light is referred to as phototherapy and offers many healing benefits bringing hope to people suffering from a number of medical conditions.  Ultraviolet (UV) light is emitted in wavelengths and measured in nanometers, with the various areas on the spectrum having very specific properties. It is critically important to use the right phototherapy lamp for your condition, with the optimum type of UV light emitted in the proper wavelength, specific for your condition.

Working with a reputable lamp manufacturer with knowledge of UV technology will ensure that you are getting exactly what you need to obtain successful results.

LightSources Is an Experienced Manufacturer of Light Therapy Lamps

The LightSources Group consists of the most advanced lamp and lamp component manufacturers today, with vast global resources and skilled design engineers with in-depth knowledge of all aspects regarding fluorescent and UV technology. We design and manufacture light therapy lamps used to treat a host of medical conditions including newborn jaundice, skin conditions and mood disorders such as depression.

Medical therapy lamps treat newborn babies born with jaundice due to the under development of their liver.  UV lights, or Bili-lights as they are called, help to break down excessive bilirubin and toxins in the body to nurture liver development. In some cases, these lights can be sent home with new parents to treat their babies at home.

UV light therapy is also a very popular form of treatment and is highly effective to treat a number of skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis and eczema. UVB rays emitted at the proper wavelength are proven an effective treatment for psoriasis as they help to slow down new skin cell production, allowing the area to heal. UV lights relieve inflamed and itchy skin to people suffering with eczema, and also treat acne with antibacterial UV germicidal effects.

LightSources and our European partner, LightTech, combined with our valued partner companies provide vast resources with in-depth knowledge of all aspects regarding fluorescent and UV technology. We design and manufacture long-lasting, high-performing light therapy lamps to provide healing and well-being to people suffering with a wide range of conditions treatable with phototherapy lamps.

Phototherapy Lamps Offer Treatment for Acne

blog 70 (2)

Phototherapy lamps have long been used for many medical purposes and are becoming more popular as a proven treatment to help people suffering from acne.  Acne is the most widely reported skin condition affecting people in the United States including nearly 85% of the adolescent population. When acne is severe and persists into adulthood, millions of people can even experience scarring.

Most people see a dermatologist and begin with conventional treatment methods such as retinoids and antibiotics, although these may present with a harsh drying of the skin from topical lotions, or the development of a resistance to antibiotics which could pose a real danger later in life. More and more people and doctors are recognizing the benefits of a light therapy acne lamp, which is proven to kill bacteria and improve skin condition without harmful or bothersome side effects.

Light is broken down into colors and wavelengths measured in nanometers, with varying areas of the spectrum providing specific benefits. For example, blue light measured at 415 nm is proven to have an antibacterial effect which prevents further breakouts by killing bacteria, while red light measured at 600 to 700 nm is proven to soothe inflammation and stimulate healing and repair through cell regeneration.

Not all UV or fluorescent lights are made the same, as you can see it is critically important to be sure that your lamp emits the proper wavelength for healing benefits. You can do more harm than good by using the wrong type of lights in the wrong situation.

UV Curing Instantly Cures and Strengthens Polymers


Ultraviolet (UV) technology is used across a multitude of commercial and industrial applications to instantly cure polymers in seconds.  UV radiation causes a photochemical reaction on polymers such as polyurethane, epoxies, and silicone glue by instantly curing, drying, sealing or bonding within seconds of exposure to UV light.

UV curing has several advantages over other treatment methods such as chemicals or air drying. Due to the speed in which ultraviolet light cures polymers, there is no time for the evaporation of inks and coatings. UV curing provides a more consistent process resulting in a higher quality product over drying methods.  UV methods for curing polymers offers many advantages over the use of chemical drying agents as well. UV curing quickly seals polymers without the use of harmful chemicals, providing a safer workplace for employees and eliminating the need to store or dispose of chemicals.

Is Your Ballast Water Treatment System USCG Approved?

post 110

With the new Ballast Water Treatment Convention (BWTC) taking effect September of 2017, all ships traveling through international waters must have a ballast water treatment system on board that meets US Coast Guard Approval.  The main goal of the BWTC is to establish standards for treating ships’ ballast water, addressing a growing concern which is one of the greatest threats to the world’s oceans.

The Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) enforces the BWTC, which is a subsidiary of the International Maritime Organization (IMO).  When ships drop cargo and pick up ballast water in one port, then sail across the ocean and drop their ballast water in a foreign port, foreign invading aquatic organisms take hold with sometimes catastrophic consequences. These aquatic lifeforms may have had natural predators to keep balance within their natural ecosystem, but multiply uncontrollably in a new environment.

When lifeforms such as jellyfish, clams, crabs, mussels and various viruses and bacteria naked to the human eye are released into a foreign environment, they threaten the health and well-being of the marine life, and also the people that live in these areas. For example, invading mussels have attached themselves to power plants and dams, proving nearly impossible to eradicate and posing a great risk to the people inland.  Jellyfish have taken over fishing ports destroying the industry and livelihood of entire towns.

The new terms of the Ballast Water Treatment Convention address what is recognized as one of the greatest threats to the sustainability of our planet’s oceans.
