How does HIPL Therapy work?
HIPL Therapy(TM) involves exposure of ailing body part from patient to beam of optical radiation at specific wavelength, intensity and power, based on patient condition.
The spectral absorption graph illustrates the optical properties for typical components of biological tissues.
The biological cell response to that specific optical radiation is photobiomodulation (PBM) or Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT).
HIPL Therapy(TM) activates processes of intracellular physiology including NO release via photobiomodulation effects. Amongst other effect, this promotes local blood circulation.
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.
