How does HIPL Therapy work?
HIPL Therapy involves exposure of ailing body part from patient to beam of optical radiation at specific wavelength and power, selected on the basis of patient condition.
The spectral absorption graph illustrates the optical properties for typical components of biological tissues.
By gently heating the tissues, the HIPL Therapy
facilitates blood circulation; HIPL Therapy also activates inner working of intracellular physiology.
The biological cell response to the specific optical radiation is referred to Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) or photobiomodulation (PBM).
In order to have an effect on a living biological system, the photon particles from low power visible light must be absorbed by electronic absorption bands that belongs to some molecular chromophore or photoacceptor.
(J.C. Sutherland, Biological effects of polychromatic light, Photochem Photobiol 76 (2002) 16470).
