The hormone changes and the body’s focus on growing a baby create poor circulation in the body during pregnancy. This is what leads to the swelling in feet and hands – areas with less circulation. Red and infrared light therapy can help the body by boosting circulation, which can counteract the poor circulation experienced throughout pregnancy. Further, increased circulation in the body can help heal wounds caused from childbirth trauma including Caesarean surgery, episiotomies as well as cracked/sore nipples caused by breastfeeding.
In a 2016 M.Sc. Nursing Degree dissertation entitled Effect of Infrared Therapy on Wound Healing and Pain among Mothers who Underwent Caesarean Section at Selected Hospital, Coimbatore, results indicated that patients who received red and infrared light therapy experienced lower levels of pain than those in a control group.
Photizo Skincare harnesses the healing power of red and infrared light at specific wavelengths and frequencies which are proven to be effective in accelerating the natural healing and anti-inflammatory processes of the body.
Photizo Skincare is designed to treat pain, and to reduce swelling and inflammation, in breastfeeding-related nipple problems and in episiotomy and caesarean section (C-section) wounds.
How can Photizo Skincare aid in the healing of pregnancy and post-partum issues?
Photizo Skincare promotes the anti-inflammatory process, activates blood circulation, and is useful for treating pain and inflammation associated with birth-related wounds and cracked/sore nipples.
Benefits of Photizo Skincare for swelling and inflammation:
- Through the increase in lymphatic drainage, it indirectly inhibits inflammation processes and thus reduces swelling
- Relieves pain

Photizo Skincare is perfect for treating the following:
- Circulatory problems in the hands and feet during pregnancy.

- Cracked or sore nipples caused by breastfeeding.
- Improving the appearance of scar tissue on C-section and episiotomy wounds.
How does Photizo Skincare work?
One of the beneficial characteristics of red and infrared light is that it has the ability to promote and enhance healing. Irradiation with red and infrared light triggers the natural repair mechanisms carried out by the body. Several of the mechanisms of action for red and infrared light therapy that work to alleviate pain and inflammation also play an important role in tissue healing.
Photizo Skincare’s LEDs produce a gentle and soothing warmth and can be used on any skin type.
