What is photobiomodulation light therapy?
Photobiomodulation is the use of light as a tool to improve the healing ability and function of the body. Specific wavelengths of yellow, red and infrared light are most commonly used. Each colour of light has unique properties and benefits, making photobiomodulation a versatile new tool that can be used with safety and ease.
Photobiomodulation is now receiving more attention due to promising results from new studies. In addition, these light therapies have few to no side effects so far. The treatment is also simple enough to perform in the comfort of your own home and only requires a decent light therapy lamp. And such light therapy lamps are being offered more and more by reliable manufacturers with knowledge of the science.
TrueLight Energy Pillow Light Therapy Lamp
The TrueLight Energy Pillow offers multiple photobiomodulation applications in one device. LED lights produce four specific wavelengths of yellow, red and infrared light that have the most beneficial effects. You can also pick between continuous or pulsating light. Only TrueLight offers the combination of 4 wavelengths and 2 light modes in a single lamp. The Energy Pillow has 6 programs, which allow you to use the lamp for different applications.
This light therapy lamp is lightweight, quiet and gives off a pleasant warmth. The LED lights are built into a soft pillow. The pillow is perfect for the treatment of neck and head.
TrueLight also offers the following light therapy lamp variants:
- The Energy Square is a large lamp with a light surface of 30 by 30 cm, intended to treat large areas of the body.
- The Baton Rouge is the size of a small flashlight and intended for shorter treatments of small areas.
TrueLight is a brand of TrueDark. TrueDark was co-founded by Dave Asprey, the well-known biohacker and founder of Bulletproof. A patent is pending for the TrueLight Energy Pillow, so TrueDark has not yet made all specifications public.
Properties of the Energy Pillow:
- 4 light wavelengths from LED lights:
- Yellow (580 nm)
- Red (630 nm and 660 nm)
- Near Infrared (NIR) (850 nm)
- 2 light modes: pulsating and constant
- 6 user programs:
- Yellow light (580 nm), pulsating or constant
- Red light (630, 660, 850 nm), pulsating or constant
- Yellow & red light (all wavelengths), pulsating or constant
- A light surface of 48.3 x 38.1 cm
- Energy density (measure for light 'dose') is around 10 milliwatt/cm2 when in direct contact with the skin (due to pending patent application not yet known exactly).
- Lightweight, portable lamp: only 3.2 kg
- With a handy built-in 30-minute timer
- No UV radiation
- Minimal EMF radiation
- Designed to be quiet
6 user programs
The Energy Pillow has 3 combinations of wavelengths with each two light modes for a total of 6 programs. You can choose between
- Yellow light (580 nm)
- Red & infrared light (630, 660 and 850 nm)
- All colours (all wavelengths)
Each colour setting has the option for pulsating or constant illumination.
Benefits of the yellow light mode
Yellow or amber light therapy looks to benefit the skin. Yellow light reaches the topmost layers of skin, but not much deeper. It can help the skin recover or relieve irritations such as sunburn.
Benefits of the red light mode
Red light penetrates more deeply into the skin, up to 1 cm. Near-infrared radiation comes as far as the underlying muscles and bones. The red and near-infrared wavelengths of TrueLight Energy Pillow are specifically chosen to support the mitochondria. Mitochondria are the power plants of the cell. Light at 630, 660 and 850 nm helps mitochondria to produce more energy. With this additional energy, a cell can do its job better and tissues repair themselves faster. Red light from the TrueLight Energy Pillow can, therefore, help with muscle and skin recovery and inflammation.
Benefits of constant or pulsating light
Pulsing and constant light each have their advantages. Pulsing light stimulates cells and mitochondria and can, therefore, accelerate recovery. Continuous lighting has a calming and soothing effect on cells, helping to reduce pain and inflammation.
TrueLight Energy Pillow comes with:
- The Energy Pillow lamp
- A remote control for the lamp (2 AAA batteries not included)
- A 3 m cable suitable for the European mains voltage. A plug adapter is required for European sockets (not included).
- You can use your own C13 cable instead of the supplied cable if you don't want to use an adapter.
- A storage bag
- A manual
Use the TrueLight Energy Pillow at least 2-3 times weekly with 20-minute sessions. Use the Energy Pillow in direct contact with the skin on the desired treatment area. For best results, free the skin from skincare products, dirt or sweat.
You can use the TrueLight Energy Pillow every day and for multiple areas per day. 10-20 minutes seems to be a good session length and dose to get the benefits without drawbacks. If sessions are too long or too frequent in the same area, you may not experience any benefits. The body needs time to process the effects of light therapy.
You will see effects after a few weeks or months, depending on your goal. You may notice accelerated recovery and pain relief after a few weeks of daily use. It can take a few months before rejuvenating effects on the skin become apparent.
The manufacturer does not recommend looking directly into the light. You can close or turn away your eyes or wear sunglasses when using the lamp for your face.
