POLY — The Science of Light
Light waves and light energy, including those found in natural sunlight, are measured in nanometers. A nanometer is a unit of length equal to one-billionth of a meter.
Red-Light, which is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, etc., occurs between 600-700 nanometers.
POLY Systems harness the health & wellness properties of each of these naturally occurring wavelengths and deliver light energy within a specific nanometer range – thus providing maximum power and effective results.
POLY’s interchangeable head panels allow you to offer multiple light therapy services from a single device!
Red Light Energy
Skin Rejuvenation and Repair for the Entire Body
Red Light Energy at 633 nanometers (wavelength) and 60mW/cm2 (power), has the ability to gently penetrate the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin) and reach the dermis, (the middle layer of the skin.) This enables it to reach fibroblasts, the cells located beneath the skin that manufacture collagen. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that helps to lift, firm, and tone the skin.
Red-Light does this, in part, by stimulating the mitochondria – the “power plants” within the cells that convert food into a usable form of stored energy. When energy is needed by the cells, it is then converted from stored energy into ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP acts as a ‘super conductor’ that transports energy directly to places within the cells (throughout the body) where it is needed. Red Light Energy induces an increase in cellular energy, which in turn, helps to boost cell growth – repairing and rejuvenating the skin.
The Halo Effect
While the area of the skin that receives direct exposure to Red Light Energy will see the most effective and beneficial results, many people report (anecdotally) that after exposure to Red Light Energy, they often experience a euphoric feeling of wellness and well-being. A combination of being calm and relaxed while also feeling re-energized.
