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.

LightSources Offers Medical Phototherapy Lamps Specific for Your Condition

LightSources is a leading designer and manufacturer of lighting solutions, utilizing vast resources with decades of experience to provide innovative lamps and components for use in a multitude of industries, including medical phototherapy. Our skilled design engineers understand the technology behind Ultraviolet radiation with the expertise to provide the optimum solution for your condition.  Blue light and red light used in combination has been proven to be an effective treatment method for acne to prevent new breakouts and alleviate current symptoms.

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. Be sure to work with your doctor and purchase your lamps from a reputable manufacturer such as the LightSources Group.

Our medical phototherapy lamps are designed from skilled engineers with expertise and an in-depth understanding of the health benefits available with UV technology.
