I have been using conventional light therapy for over three years in my home care practice and for the past 6 months, I have been testing the Photizo® device. I found that light therapy does not always work for all wounds, but the Photizo® device is a great step forward for wound care, especially in home care situations. It is portable, easy to use and in the cases where I used it, I could notice much faster healing (up to 5 times) compared with the other light therapy device. I was able to heal wounds that were treated before with high tech dressings for many months without success. The doctors and patients were impressed with the fast and lasting success of the Photizo® device.

Christa Taute

The patient, Ms J.E. Taute, has been bedridden for the past four years. She has had a large pressure sore on her back for the past 8 months which was unresponsive to any treatments that were currently available. Before starting Photizo treatment, the wound was 30 mm long x 40 mm wide x 30 mm deep. The wound immediately (within a day or two) started closing and was highly responsive to the light therapy. Within several days it had shrunken to 10 mm long x 5 mm wide x 0.5 mm deep. The wound will probably close within the next couple of days and it looks much healthier than previously.

Leandra Moolman Somatologist

As a Somatologist (beauty therapist) working with the Photizo for the past two months, I was impressed by its user-friendliness, quick results, client satisfaction, and cost efficiency. Our salon treatment quality has entered a new dimension! Obtaining good results in less time guarantees the client’s satisfaction.

Larette Roesch Massage Therapist

I am a Therapeutic Massage and Reflexology therapist and am currently using the Photizo® in my practice. The results of the Photizo® treatments I’m experiencing are amazingly effective and fast. Photizo® enables me to obtain superior results not previously possible.

Some of the results that the Photizo® enabled me to obtain in my patients are as follows:

After:

  • 2 sessions of treating an infected burn wound (gas burner), the infection cleared, and the wound is progressing fast, towards total healing
  • 1 session of treating stomach pain, caused by stress, the pain was gone
    1 session of treating a blocked sinus problem, the patient experienced relief
  • 3 sessions treating the pain of arthritic fingers, the patient felt better and she was able to move her fingers without pain
  • 1 session of treating gout in a patient’s knee, the swelling subsided, and it was less painful. – 1 session of treating a small burn on a finger (caused by a hot plate) it healed within 24hours
  • 1 session of treating a small child’s headache the pain disappeared
  • 1 session of treating a patient’s injured shoulder, the shoulder improved dramatically

I’ve been using the Photizo light for the past 8 years, with great results, personally and professionally. We used it on patients after they had an operation. Their pain was considerably less and their wounds healed faster than with patients that didn’t use it. Recently my cat had an abscess in the face and within a day the light made the abscess drain, and healed it within 5 days to a dry scab. I would recommend the Photizo light to anyone.

Sr. Hannie Strobos

I am a trained nurse and started using the Photizo® Light Therapy device in 2006.

Here are a few examples of great results with the Photizo:

  • I used it in wound care and had wonderful results. Wounds heal much faster than without the light
  • A vascular chronic wound improved within four treatments
    A woman that fell had extensive bruising on her face, and it cleared within a week of treatment
  • A child with staphylococcus infection on her buttocks – antibiotic treatment as well as four treatments with light – infection completely gone
  • An older woman with vertigo improved within a week of treatment and could drive her car again
  • A woman in her late fifties had to have orthopaedic surgery on her hand. Light treatment was given before the operation and immediately after her discharge. She had to go back a week after the operation for X-rays to see if the operation was successful. Treatment was given daily in that week before she went to the doctor. The X-rays already showed bone formation, something that normally starts later on
  • A teenager severely sprained her ankle in netball and Photizo treatment was given daily for a week and then three times a week for the next week. She recovered so well that she could participate in netball again before the end of the season, something that nobody had foreseen
  • A girl who had an appendectomy got an infection in the abdominal wound, and healing was slow. Photizo Light treatment was given and 19 days later she was healed

I want the Photizo light wherever I go! It works for almost any injury you could think of – small household burns, cuts, insect bites and bruises. The sooner you give light when a problem starts, the sooner the recovery.

Freddie Mong

I am a professional singer. For many years now I have struggled with hoarseness following performances.

I have been to several ear, nose and throat specialists, who have informed me that I overexert my vocal cords. My vocal cords are usually severely swollen following performances, and most doctors advise me to rest my voice between performances – this was all they could do for me.

This was gravely detrimental to my singing career, as I could perform no more than twice a week. It was only quite recently that I heard about the Photizo® light therapy device and I was desperate for something to make the swelling subside. The results were amazing. I use the Photizo unit before and after performances, and I have no difficulty in staging four appearances a week now.

Photizo has greatly helped with getting the swelling down and I recuperate much faster. I have also found Photizo to be very helpful in treating other minor injuries that I or my crew sustain. I can wholeheartedly recommend the Photizo device for use in treating whichever injuries you may have.

Femke Moodie Physiotherapist

I have been a physiotherapist for the last 10 years. I have been using Photizo for the last five years in my practice and replaced all my lasers with Photizo.

We are three physiotherapists in our practice and we all prefer the Photizo, for the results achieved are just so much better.

I was amazed at its wound healing properties. We treat caesarean and laparotomy wounds in hospitals, and also treat cracked nipples for all the breastfeeding mommies. If we compare the healing process with the normal laser used in our practice for the first five years, to the healing process in the last five years with Photizo, we see a much quicker healing process.

Patients feel an immediate effect on pain and 24 hours later we can already see new tissue being formed. A normal laser also does this but the difference is that laser is very concentrated per dosage per area being treated. The time taken to give an effective dosage is much longer with a laser. The Photizo Light Therapy Device makes it easy to treat large areas for its probes are bigger and the dosage per treatment is spread over a wide area. There are also fewer contra-indications to the use of Photizo which makes it easy to treat more patients.

The elasticity of the connective tissue is really good and patients form much less scar tissue. With patients being treated for caesarean wounds, with their first babies, we used normal laser and the second time around we used Photizo. The results on reduced pain, reduced scar tissue forming and improved elasticity was really much better. The patients also noticed a difference.

We also use Photizo for sinus treatments. It clears the inflammation in the sinuses and helps with sinus headaches. It is very comfortable to treat baby’s sinuses, as they move a lot during treatment. The probe has a soft attachment which makes it easy to control the probe and baby without hurting the baby.

Light therapy isn’t a painful modality and again the area being treated and penetration into the treatment area is very good. We have also seen great results on sports injuries and neck and back conditions. I also use our Photizo to treat headaches and any joint injury or condition.

I would really recommend the use of Photizo Light Therapy. It just makes treatment so much more effective and our results is just so much better.

Dr. Jan Vandeputte (Medical Doctor) Belgium

I was used to high tech dressings and was sceptical to use light therapy for my patients.

It took me a while before I was convinced to try the Photizo® device. The first patient I treated did not seem to heal markedly quicker but told me that she could once again sleep at night since the usual pain was gone for hours after the light therapy session.

The next patient (a diabetic with a chronic foot ulcer) did, however, heal in seven days. The patient’s doctor and I were astonished, as this patient had been treated for seven months using high-tech dressings, without clear signs of healing. For the past three months, I have thus been using the Photizo® device to heal all the difficult to heal wounds, with great patient satisfaction.

Dr. Berol Goede (Veterinarian) Perth, Australia

The Photizo has been such a wonderful addition to our Veterinary clinic. We have used it to treat various kinds of wounds, bruises, surgical areas, and ailments and have seen many of our patients often heal within a shorter amount of time than initially anticipated.

The treatment is safe and user-friendly and our patients enjoy being treated. Now we can offer our patients and clients a different non-invasive treatment modality that actually works, saves time and money and that helps our patients recover while alleviating pain and discomfort.
