Our questions for Dr. Pelletier

How does photobiomodulation work ?

LED photobiomodulation is a painless and non-invasive physiological process which works by delivering light energy to the skin. Thanks to the emission of different colors in the visible spectrum by light-emitting diodes, we can treat several aspects of our skin: complexion, fine lines, elasticity. More than the color itself, it is the clever mix of intensity and vibratory combination that is most effective.

Our mitochondria : our cellular lungs !

The photons of light absorbed by the mitochondria increase their energy output in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) and optimize the release of oxygen for better cellular respiration. The stimulated fibroblasts produce collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid for boosted tissue regeneration.

What is the protocol to follow ?

2 sessions of 12 minutes at 3 day intervals over a period of 3 months are enough to obtain visible results. It is necessary to wait about 2 months after stopping the sessions for a lasting and optimal result: this is the delayed effect. The effect obtained is maintained by repeating the programme.

Why use red light ?

Red light has been the subject of numerous scientific studies over the past 30 years, particularly in wound healing. It is even used in supportive care and is very safe to use.

What are the dangers of photobiomodulation ?

None. In fact, it is
