Treatment of acute and chronic wounds
ACUTE VS CHRONIC WOUNDS
Acute wounds heal through the process of inflammation, tissue formation and remodelling, which occur in a timely fashion. Chronic wounds, on the other hand, are those that have failed to progress through the phases of healing in an orderly and timely fashion and have shown no significant progress towards healing.
OPEN VS CLOSED WOUNDS
Open wounds have exposed body tissue in the base of the wound and closed wounds have damage, without exposed tissue. Typical open wounds would be due to surgery, incisions, puncture wounds, abrasions or lacerations and ulcers. Closed wounds could typically be due to contusions, blisters or hematoma.

HOW DOES PHOTIZO SKINCARE WORK?
Throughout the ages, sunlight (as the earliest form of phototherapy) has been known to have both healing and wellness properties. Light is energy, and energy sustains life – it cannot be destroyed, but it can be transformed into other forms.
Photizo Skincare’s LED light therapy harnesses the healing power of red and infrared light at specific wavelengths and frequencies for accelerated healing by activating the body’s own cellular regeneration mechanisms.
LEDs, or light-emitting diodes, are non-invasive, painless, produce a gentle and soothing warmth and do not require recovery time.
Photizo Skincare allows increased blood flow into the area being treated to ensure that any waste is quickly removed from the area.
USING PHOTIZO SKINCARE
Simply hold the Photizo Skincare’s lens (containing the LEDs) over the area to be treated, press the power button and wait until the timed treatment ends, then move it to the next spot requiring treatment. Repeat until you have finished treating all the desired areas. When treating wounds make sure that the lens is not touching the skin.
