Diabetic patients can experience problems with poor circulation to the feet as a result of damage to the blood vessels. These problems increase the risk of ulcers, infections and amputations. Diabetic ulcers are painful and often embarrassing for sufferers. While topical treatments have some positive effect on the ulcers, the additional and complementary use of red and infrared light has been shown to produce accelerated healing.

In clinical trials performed on diabetic foot ulcers there was a substantial difference in the effectiveness and time period of healing of the ulcers in the group receiving treatment with red and infrared light versus those using just a routine dressing.

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 restoration of diabetic ulcers.

How can Photizo Skincare aid diabetic conditions?

Photizo Skincare is especially effective in accelerating the healing process of diabetic skin ulcers. In extreme cases, where amputation of a limb is required, it also helps to improve the quality of the remaining tissue and leads to accelerated wound healing after medical surgical procedures.

Photizo Skincare promotes the anti-inflammatory process, activates blood circulation, and realigns collagen fibres. It reduces scabbing and erythema, without promoting keloids.

Benefits of Photizo Skincare for diabetic patients:

  • Has an anti-inflammatory and protective effect on cells
  • Decreases healing time for diabetic ulcers
  • Speeds up the healing of surgical wounds
  • Decreases the risk of infection

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. The irradiation by 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.

Wound healing progresses through stages of inflammation, proliferation, remodelling and maturation. Light therapy has been demonstrated to impact each of these phases in beneficial ways. Light therapy can provide beneficial impacts in open surface wounds.

Photizo Skincare’s LEDs produce a gentle and soothing warmth and can be used on any skin type or colour.
