Discover the True Science of LED Phototherapy
What is Healite II?
HEALITE II is a second-generation Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy system that is now available in Australia and is TGA approved.
Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT) with HEALITE II is a non-ablative skin surface treatment system that uses light delivered through light emitting diodes to deliver pure light in precise wavelengths for the treatment of acne, superficial skin lesions, relieving pain, promoting skin rejuvenation and others.
Developed by Dr Glen Calderhead, known as the guru of LED technology, HEALITE II harnesses the properties of light via Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology, properly delivered and concentrated, treating effectively without possibility of physical trauma or thermal damage.
According to Dr Calderhead, one of the key advantages of the HeaLite II is that it has such a wide range of clinical indications. It has been shown to speed up the healing of wounds caused by laser treatment or surgery, and can even reduce the pain, bruising and swelling experienced post-laser treatment. Treatment with the HeaLite II may also improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve photo-aged skin and enhance skin tone and texture.
What conditions can be treated with the Healite II?
HEALITE II can be used as a standalone therapy or as an adjunctive therapy to a wide variety of treatments, including aesthetic laser and IPL treatments, skin needling, deep peels and pre and post skin surgery. Each wavelength targets various different indications. Patients of all ages and skin types can benefit from the pain free, athermal and easy to apply Healite treatments.
830nm wavelength (Yellow Light)
- Wound Healing and scar reduction
- Pain relief
- Relief of muscle and joint pain
- Skin rejuvenation
- Temporary increase in blood flow to skin
633nm wavelength (Red Light)
- Skin rejuvination
- Treatment of active acne
- Treatment of skin cancers (with exogenous PDT)
415nm wavelength (Blue Light)
- Treatment of active acne
How many treatments will I need?
The number of sessions required will depend on the condition being treated. For most indications we would generally recommend one to two sessions per week for four weeks followed by monthly maintenance treatments.
Each session takes approximately 10 to 20 minutes to complete.
Is it painful and is there any downtime?
Healite II treatments are safe, completely pain free and have no downtime.
What are the costs of Healite II treatments?
At Peninsula Dermatology, Healite II treatments are often complimentary when combined with various cosmetic treatments (eg enzyme reactivation treatments, Clear and Brilliant laser etc).
Stand-alone Healite II treatments may be purchased at a cost of $400 for a series of 8 treatments (eg $50 per treatment). This may be purchased for a variety of indications such as acne management or skin rejuvenation.
