What is the BIOPTRON Light Therapy
Is a light therapy
system which is used by people at home and healthcare practitioners.
It can be used to treat a variety of conditions and is based on
ongoing scientific and clinical research.
there different devices?
Yes. In order
to assure the best-fitting solution for every need, BLT range of
products includes three different types of devices. They differ
in size and design, but emit light with the same physical and technical
characteristics. The filter diameter varies from :
5 cm (BIOPTRON
15 cm (BIOPTRON
the devices come with different stands?
Pro 1 is available either with a table stand or with a floor stand.
MedAll and for BIOPTRON 2 we recommend one of the optional available
of different stands not only allows for a more comfortable treatment
but it also allows you to treat areas of the body, which would be
difficult to reach otherwise.
BIOPTRON Light Therapy devices certified and approved?
Yes, they are
approved as medical devices in compliance with 93/42/EEC (the European
Community directive for all medical products and devices produced
in the EU).
Light has biostimulative effects. What does this mean?
stimulates reparative and regenerative processes, as well as the
It acts in a natural way by supporting the regenerative capacity
of the body and therefore helps the body to release its own healing
to the skin it stimulates light sensitive intracellular structures
and biomolecules in the body. This initiates a cellular chain reactions
and triggers secondary responses which are not onlu limited to the
treated skin area but also involves the whole body.
Light Therapy can help to:
the defence system in our body
regenerative and repair processes throughout the whole of our body
pain or decrease its intensity
Unique Technology of the BIOPTRON Light Therapy Systems
When the light
is absorbed by our body it produces a series of biological responses.
Different tissues and cells in the body have unique light absorption
characteristics which determine which wavelengths or light are produced
and absorbed by the body to provide a given theraputic effect.
Each cell in
the area treated will absorb light at specific wavelengths. All
the different wavelengths affect different tissues and cells in
the body. This is why the BIOPTRON Light Therapy Systems has combined
several wavelengths in one unit.
uses a combination of low infrared and visible light wavelengths
that have been shown to benefit the treatment of different types
of conditons and injuries.
scientific research it is known how both visible and infrared light
affects different positive changes at a cellular level. There is
no one single mechanism of action but a combination of processes
involved in BIOPTRON Light Therapy.
Light Therapy - User Friendly and Effective Therapy
is now widely accepted and used in medicine as a unser friendly,
effective medical device. In over 20 years of clinical research
worldwide it has been shown to be supportive in the conservative
management of acute and chronic injouries as well as post operative
range of applications
in professional and home settings

Made to high standards
can I use BIOPTRON Light Therapy devices?
Because of the
ease and safety in use the various devices can be used to effectively
treat a wide range of both medical, cosmetic as well as be included
in a broad selection of wellness programmes.
pain treatment what kind of pain conditions can BIOPTRON Light Therapy
physiotherapy through to sports related injuries.
should I use BIOPTRON Light Therapy?
Every one of
the three devices includes detailed instructions for use.
is the duration of a therapy session and how often can BIOPTRON
Light Therapy be used?
takes between 4 to 10 minutes once or twice a day depending on the
condition being treated. The duration of an entire course of treatment
depends on a number of factors according to the condition treated.
Here on the Light Therapy UK Steven Warren has provided more information
on use and you can

the devices easy to use?
Yes, all of
the BIOPTRON devices are both user-friendly and easy to maintain.
should the treatment area be prepared before a therapy session?
The area to
be treated should be clean. When treating open wounds any bandages
or plasters or topical medications should be removed. Regular cleaning
of the wound should be completed before applying the BIOPTRON Light
Therapy (in the cases of clinical cases then wound preparation should
be carried out under the supervision of a health care practitioner
such as nurse or doctor).
I place the device at a set distance and position?
Yes, the device
being used should be placed at an angle of 90 degrees and at a distance
of 10 cm (4 inches) from the skin.
BIOPTRON Light Therapy devices have any harmful side effects?
Therapy has been used in clinical and home settings for more than
20 years and no harmful side effects have ever been reported or
recorded in over thousands of treatments carried out.
are the characteristics of BIOPTRON Light?
Light Therapy Systems are composed of the key beneficial therapeutic
- this means that waves move on parallel plane and
with the BIOPTRON Light Therapy systems the degree of polarization
are approximately 95%
which means that the light contains not only one wavelength as in
laser light but a wide range of beneficial wavelengths including
visible light and a totally safe part of the low infrared range.
means that BIOPTRON Light Therapy uses incoherent or out-of-phase
light so that the light waves are no synchronized.
is the wavelengths of BIOPTRON Light?
extend from 480nanometers to 3400 nanometers (nm) which has been
proven from scientific research to be a clinically effective range
from the visible to infrared electromagnetic spectrum of light.
BIOPTRON Light contain ultraviolet rays?
Light has no UV rays and therefore it is absolutely safe.
is the difference between sunlight and BIOPTRON Light?
to natural sunlight the technically synthesized BIOPTRON Light provides
light therapy with controllable and therefore reproducible parameters.
This means that only the therapeutic and thereby non harmful wavelengths
long is the guarantee period for BIOPTRON Light Therapy devices?
Zepter high quality policy and commitment, BIOPTRON LIGHT THERAPY
devices have 5 year warranty.
*BIOPTRON LIGHT source (halogen bulb) has 2 year warranty.
there Service and Repair Centres for the devices?
Yes, all repairs
are to be carried out only by BIOPTRON Service and Repair Centres.

BIOPTRON Light Therapy systems are designed to deliver 10,000 lux
which allows short treatment times and can be used when you are
working or even relaxing watching television.
people ask if they can wear glasses or contact lenses and the answer
is 'Yes if they are clear'. Sunglasses or photo-sensitive or tinted
lenses WILL reduce the effectiveness of the treatment. This is because
less light will reach important receptors at the back of the eye.
Also FALLING ASLEEP during a light therapy session decreases the
benefit from light therapy.
medications can cause photosensitivity
medication, such as isotretinoin and topical retinoids, can cause
the skin to react with light so if you are taking medication that
may have this type of side effect (erferred to as photosensitivity)
please consultant your doctor before using BIOPTRON Light Therapy.
combined with other Acne treatments
can be stand alone skin care treatment however people taking medication
such as roaccutane should consult their GP or dermatologist.
therapy is clinically proven to be an effective treatment for MODERATE
acne where the blue wavelengths kill the bacteria which cause acne
and the red wavelengths reduces inflammation and heals the skin.
Tony Chu, a consultant dermatologist at Hammersmith Hospital here
in the UK and founder of the Acne Support Group, found that patients
with moderate acne reported a 76% improbvement in inflammation after
12 weeks of blue and red light therapy with a 58% improvement in
number of spots.
Chu is concerned about the increasing use of antibiotics and steroids
for treating acne and sees light therapy as a safe and effective
