WHAT IS PHOTOBIOMODULATION?
Photobiomodulation is using light to help heal and improve the body. Our bodies need light to work properly, just like plants need sunlight to grow. There are special lights called LEDs that can shine certain colors of light onto the skin. The light energy gets absorbed by cells underneath the skin. This helps wake up the cells and makes them work better. It’s like giving the cells a healthy boost of energy!
Here at Bio Wellness Center, we use photobiomodulation lights to help treat things like pain, inflammation, and injuries. The light energy can reduce swelling, ease aches, and speed up healing. It’s a very gentle treatment that doesn’t hurt at all. The lights are shone right onto the skin for a few minutes at a time. Some people describe it as feeling pleasantly warm and tingly.
Photobiomodulation is kind of like photosynthesis for the body! Just as plants use sunlight to grow strong, the cells in our body can use specific colors of light to grow healthier too. The light gives our cells more energy to do their jobs and mend damage. So photobiomodulation helps recharge and repair the body in a natural way.

WHAT TO EXPECT
The machine we use for photobiomodulation is called the “Firefly” and it looks kind of like a laser gun from a sci-fi movie. But don’t worry, it doesn’t shoot any lasers. It’s just delivering helpful light to your body.
The machine has a handheld wand attached that the doctor points at the area of your body needing treatment. The tip of the wand has bright, colorful LED lights inside. These lights shine directly onto your skin.
When the doctor turns on the machine, you’ll feel a gentle beam of warm, red or near-infrared light. It doesn’t hurt at all – in fact, most people say it feels soothing, like the warmth of the sun.
The doctor will hold the wand a few inches from your body and slowly move it around. They are aiming the light over the entire area that needs healing. This usually only takes a few minutes.
As the light shines on your skin, it is sending energy into your cells right below the surface. Imagine the light beams charging up your cells like a video game power-up. This helps wake up your cells and get them working better.
You might start feeling some tingling or heat as your cells absorb the light energy. This means the therapy is working! Photobiomodulation is triggering your body’s natural healing systems.
The session is quick, painless, and drug-free. We may have you do several sessions per week until your condition improves. After getting “charged up” with these lights, your body will be stronger and better able to heal itself!
