General Benefits
 
BIOPTRON Light Therapy can be used both as a complementary treatment to support conventional medical methods and as monotherapy for certain indications.

BIOPTRON Light Therapy can:
► Improve microcirculation
► Reinforce the human defence system
► Stimulate regenerative and reparative processes of the entire organism
► Promote wound healing
► Relieve pain or decrease its intensity
 

The outstanding characteristics of BIOPTRON Light enable the light to penetrate not only the skin but also the underlying tissues. Thus the positive effect of BIOPTRON Light is not limited to the treated skin area but also has a beneficial effect on the entire organism.

BIOPTRON Light has biostimulative effects: when applied to the skin, it stimulates light-sensitive intracellular structures and molecules. This initiates cellular chain reactions and triggers so-called secondary responses, which are not only limited to the treated skin area, but can involve the whole body.

BIOPTRON Light Therapy stimulates and modulates reparative and regenerative processes as well as the processes of the human defence-system.

BIOPTRON Light Therapy acts in a natural way by supporting the regenerative capacity of the body and therefore helps the body to release its own healing potential.

The BIOPTRON Light Therapy has become accepted as a new form of treatment in prevention, therapy and rehabilitation worldwide.



Research has indicated that the treatment of scars, various skin disorders and wounds using Bioptron Light Therapy, dramatically reduces healing time and allows the body to heal leaving little in terms of tissue damage.
 
Over 2000 trials have been conducted worldwide, the results of which can be obtained upon request.

Vetinary Use



Below are some quotes taken from vetinarians:
 
"VIP light is obviously effective for a large number of cases. Important are the ease of use (the devices do weigh little and are easy to handle), and the short duration of time needed for actual treatment, as well as the easy acceptance of the treatment by the "patients" , which plays an important role with difficult ones.
The fact that VIP light can be combined with any of the other treatments known to me, whereby synergy-effects can be observed, makes its use even more interesting ".

" Generally, treatments of 2-6 minutes duration are sufficient. Any overdose is not harmful, but makes no difference towards the success of the therapy either. Normally one treatment per day is sufficient, however if not too inconvenient, a second treatment is certainly recommended. In general, shorter, multiple treatments are more effective than longer, isolated ones ".

" Usually, visible improvement is experienced immediately after one treatment, especially in acute cases: pain reduces clearly after several minutes, itching and swelling reduce significantly. In chronic or more permanent cases of sickness, one has to be prepared for a longer period of time needed for healing. Reducing of pain can be expected within several treatments.

" It is important not to cut the duration of treatment short. Because of the quick, often instant success, many animal owners and veterinarians tend to cease treatment prematurely, which can cause a relapse especially with skin diseases (fungi). It is necessary to continue treatment until everything is completely healed, even if symptoms of inflammation and itching have already disappeared "

BIOPTRON FOR PEDIATRIC INDICATIONS

 BIOPTRON Light Therapy can be used in children as a complementary therapy in various types of conditions, such as:
 Pediatric dermal affections
 Allergic respiratory diseases and upper respiratory tract infections
 Musculoskeletal and neurological disorders
 
Skin diseases are common in children; up to 15% of children suffer from allergic eczema and skin infections (caused by viruses and bacteria) occur frequently. Skin diseases can be distressing for children (and their parents) because of skin soreness, constant itching, loss of sleep and embarrassment about the appearance of skin lesions on the face or hands.
 
BIOPTRON Light Therapy provides a child-friendly treatment that can help to promote skin healing and reduce the discomfort associated with skin disorders.

Younger children are prone to viral infections of upper airways (i.e. nose and throat), having the frequent episodes of the illness per year what can result in a significant loss of days in the school.
 
BIOPTRON Light Therapy can help to treat these conditions by stimulating the immune system and promote healing response.
 BIOPTRON Light Therapy is clinically proven and has been used to promote wound healing and to relieve pain and inflammation.
 
BIOPTRON Light Therapy can be used to treat newborn babies for the condition of dermal affections as phlebitis, decubitis and intertrigo. Very often for the condition of skin rush – nappy ruches by reliving pain and inflammation.

BIOPTRON for SAD

 
Seasonal Affective Disorders
 (‘Winter Depression’)
 
The long nights and dull days of winter can cause some people to experience feelings of low mood; this is called Seasonal Affective Disorder – SAD or ‘Winter Depression’. SAD is believed to be caused by an imbalance in the production of a ‘sleep hormone’-melatonin. The increased light levels can cause the reduction of ‘sleep hormone’ production and, thus, reduce the related symptoms.
 
Light therapy is standard treatment of seasonal affective disorder and related symptoms
 Chronic fatigue syndrome
 Lowered motivation
 Increased need for sleep
 
BIOPTRON Light Therapy is providing the effective light spectrum, with no UV radiation with min. of 10 000 lux which is beneficial for the SAD treatment.
