Low Level Laser Light, Cool Light Therapy are some more buzz words but don't get it mixed up with LED light. A laser beam is collimated where LED light is spread out light while they both use the same nanometers of light ranging from 400 to 700, the laser beam is more powerful.

With the Phytoscan HFD laser devise, there are two modalities used; the laser light and microcurrent. The microcurrent using direct current onto the skin, enhances the effect and bennefits of the laser light. It also enhances the product penetration for a 3 fold process.
Research has focused on the use of low-level lasers in a process called photo-bio stimulation; their ability to stimulate a variety of cellular functions in a non-thermal (heat), non-destructive manner. Photon energy is absorbed by the DNA, activating it. The cell's DNA then transmits this new energy to the cell walls by means of a protein and calcium transfer. Then the cell walls transform themselves into healthy shapes, allowing the cell to function again at full capacity. The tissues exposed to light increase blood flow, thus helping to carry vitamins and nutrients into the area where they are needed most, with no damage to surrounding tissues. As a result of increased blood flow, toxins and waste bi-products are taken away from the tissues.
Cold laser treatments can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions. It is typically used on the face, neck, and/or chest to treat facial erythema (redness) and flushing, and remedy damage caused by sun overexposure. Cold Laser treatments can also help eliminate the redness and flushing of Rosacea. Treatment only takes 20 to 30 minutes and it isn't painful.
So what happens after a cold laser treatment? You will first see a gradual decrease in redness of your skin. The treated skin will feel softer and vary less in tone. Fine lines and wrinkles will also improve, along with fading of pigmentation and age spots and a reduction in pore size. Rosacea sufferers will see a marked reduction in breakouts, and in some cases may be able to decrease or discontinue their medication. Results improve with each treatment and improve gradually over time. Most people require about 6 to 8 treatments over a three to four week session. Those with more complicated conditions may need more.
