Six years ago, after moving my practice to Aspen, I became very interested in light therapy and its application in the field of plastic surgery. Specifically, I was intrigued by benefits of light therapy in combination with the aesthetic procedures we were offering our clients. I felt that there was a real potential to reduce post-operative inflammation, improve healing and reduce pain with these technologies. Although there was an ample amount of scientific support for the benefits of these types of treatments, the commercial production left a lot to be desired.
This all changed after I met and ultimately worked with the people at LightStim. This was a forward thinking company whose sole mission was to be a leader in the development of LED light therapy technologies for medical and over the counter usage. After contributing our clinical experience to the creation of their treatment protocols, our office was selected as a principle location for testing of their hand held devices. LightStim therapies subsequently have become the standard of care in our office, combined most often with aesthetic treatments and surgical procedures. The results have been profound and we are looking forward to seeing where this technology leads us in the future.
LightStim LED light therapies have three treatment applications depending on the technology used in the device:
I would advise anyone interested in these types of treatments to check out their website and to come in our clinic and see the technology first hand.
