COVID 19 has created a serious scientific debate between experts: over the last long months many treatments have been experimented , formulating different hypotheses some confirmed, others refuted, all this, in great confusion while we wait for a vaccine as several experiments are underway in various research centres worldwide. Data gathered regarding this pandemic suggest that currently an efficient immune system seems to be the best defense to contrast and prevent contamination from COVID 19 and from bacteria and viruses in general. With this in mind, a non pharmaceutical solution could come from an ancient technology such as LED light. It has been proven that a Led light treatment , at specific wavelengths, can strengthen the immune system decreasing the risks of contracting a virus or bacteria.
Lets discuss these issues with Antonio Arnesano, Managing Director of Tuenda, an Italian Manufacturer of Led Light Therapy Medical Devices
” Today the IMMUNE SYSTEM is one of the most effective non pharmacological solutions to fight COVID 19. Combating pathogens that attack humans is a primary function of our immune system, and Led light can help to increase its efficiency. Led light technology has been used over the last twenty years in numerous fields: Dermatology, Trichology, Skin Cancer treatment and Aesthetic Medicine. Today we feel it is necessary to discuss other functions, that do not preclude current treatments but that are currently much more useful to everyone in the community; using LED light to strengthen the human defense mechanism, a treatment that has been tried and tested over the years”
What type of treatment is available, and above all, does this mean a skin contact therapy?
”Lets be clear and immediately confirm that all Tuenda Keep system treatments do not involve any skin contact. Given this pandemic we are convinced that clients in the future will want to resort to more skin treatments such as anti aging, blemishes, skin hydration, acne, psoriasis etc., in the knowledge that any type of skin contact may cause infection contagion. Our treatments involve exposure to LED light of facial, neck and upper chest skin, for different reasons , but all without any physical contact with the area to be treated.”
Can this prolonged lock-down influence behavior and consumer trends of the general public ?
”Long periods of psychological pressure often lead to rediscovering a need for ‘physical beauty’ lost, as a result of the daily restrictions that have deprived the individual of his own freedom and his usual habits. According to the data available in social and economic difficulties the individual becomes his/her own centre of attention, looking at ways of caring for him/herself through aesthetic treatment and greater use of skincare cosmetics”
What will change in personal care ?
” Greater emphasis will be placed on hygiene and safety, that only non skin contact treatment will be able to guarantee. Once we return to a new ‘normal’ we believe that it will be fundamentally important to offer LED light therapy without any skin CONTACT to guarantee safety and at the same time provide excellent results through Aesthetic medicine treatment as well as strengthening the Immune System. Tuenda Keep led light therapy is in fact the only Aesthetic Medical system able to provide treatments of the highest quality without any skin contact. On the contrary treatments that involve skin contact substantially increase the risks of cross contamination of viruses and bacteria.”
Can we say therefore that LED light can help strengthen the Immune system ?
”Science shows us that certain ultraviolet wavelengths increase the Vitamin D3 levels in the human body. Vitamin D3 is a molecule generated primarily through the effects of exposure to daylight. It is important to underline that only a third of the daily requirements derive from food intake and can be obtained through Vitamin supplements; the remaining part must be absorbed by the body exclusively through exposure to light. The condensed Vitamin D3 acts on the skin surface; the skin absorbs the ultraviolet light and is activated in the space of 48 hours and this acts on the immune system receivers increasing the efficiency levels against bacteria and viruses”
From what we see it would appear that that, in this period of lock down, we are less exposed to sunlight and as a result have less Vitamin D ?
” Exactly,! In summer months it is extremely important to expose the face and arms to sunlight to guarantee adequate levels of Vitamin D3. The lock down has kept us away from sunlight and all that this implies. Ultraviolet Led light makes up for lack of body exposure to sunlight, and a decrease in levels of Vitamin 3D . Whoever wishes to ‘recuperate’ the lost light over the past months can undergo for one of our treatments”
We now know that Ultraviolet light increases Vitamin D3 levels. Are there however direct effects of LED light on the Immune system?
”Infrared led light therapy actively stimulates the proliferation of Lymphocytes, present in the white blood cells that circulate in the human body through the blood vessels and bear in mind that immunity is associated to Limphocyte activity. To actively stimulate these cells in the immune system means raising a barrier against contagion of viruses and bacteria”
What can a client expect from a led light therapy treatment and where can he go to obtain one ?
