Phototherapy safety has been studied extensively in Europe and the U.S. for over thirty years and has been the subject of over 3,500 scientific papers, published worldwide. LED phototherapy is painless, non-toxic, non-invasive and is considered safe by the FDA. Phototherapy complements many traditional treatments and has been used for years in numerous medical procedures, medical spas, sports clinics, the offices of aestheticians and dermatologists, by NASA and consumers around the world.
In 1991, the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development along with the National Institute of Neuralgic Disorders and Stroke declared phototherapy to be safe. Phototherapy is 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 patients from eating.
NASA uses LEDs and phototherapy systems in the international space station and on space transport vehicles to counteract the effects of zero gravity on the human body. Astronauts in space experience bone loss along with muscle and organ atrophy, are affected by disrupted circadian rhythms and have difficulty with wound healing.
Dr. Harry T. Whelan is a researcher and phototherapy consultant to NASA. Dr. Whelan has successfully utilized LEDs to treat wounds, third degree burns and brain cancer. Phototherapy research is being conducted worldwide and includes use of LEDs to reverse Alzheimer’s, to reduce the effects of Parkinson’s, to treat Macular Degeneration and much more.
LEDs, unlike Lasers, do not generate heat, are non-invasive and safe for home use. Lasers generate high levels of heat, can destroy or vaporize tissues, are expensive and produce only one wavelength. Laser as well as IPL treatments are restricted to licensed professional technicians.
LED Light Therapy is safe for all skin types and ages. Contraindications are rare and would include photosensitivity due to medication or certain herbal supplements (St. John’s Wart), seizures and a clinical diagnosis of Mania. Anyone with medically diagnosed eye disease should check with his or her ophthalmologist first before using light therapy. Research by bio-physicist, Fritz Popp, suggests that individuals with Multiple Sclerosis are taking in too much light, inhibiting the ability of cells to function normally. Consult your physician if you use photosensitive drugs, are pregnant, have MS, are diagnosed with eye disease or have any concerns about using phototherapy.
