Wound Healing & Scar Reduction Phototherapy
Body Contour is delighted to be able to offer Photodynamic therapy to their clients in Fort Lauderdale for the first time. This cutting edge LED technology was developed as a non-surgical light therapy to stimulate the skins own renewal process.
The LED system consists of three different wavelengths; infrared, red and blue. These specific wavelengths excite particular cell activity and depending on the specific condition you are treating, can now offer clients a non-invasive treatment that promotes healthy skin function
“For anyone considering surgery, Phototherapy is an absolute must, both before, to prepare the skin, and after, to encourage rapid wound healing and scar reduction.”
The LED wavelengths penetrate 8-12 mm into the skin, stimulating the wound healing response, reducing healing time and scar formation. If you have been unlucky enough to have suffered a traumatic injury or are thinking of having surgery, utilizing phototherapy as soon as possible after the event will increase the wound healing time and make a dramatic difference in the scar tissue formation.
How many treatments do I need?
The number of treatments required varies greatly depending on the severity and type of the wound. This can be discussed during a consultation. Typically treatments are done twice a week over a five week period. The treatments are completely pain-free and are 20 minutes in duration.
