WHAT IS COLD LASER AND LOW LEVEL LIGHT THERAPY (LLLT)?
Imagine if you could get all of the benefits of the sun, deep within the body, without the harmful ultraviolet rays. That's one of the easiest ways to explain how Cold Laser, also called Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) benefits the body.
Red and near-Infrared (NIR) polychromatic spectrum has been well studied since 1960s and have been documented through thousands of fundamental research studies to analyze the effects of red and NIR on tissue repair and rejuvenation, as well a pain relief mechanisms. Red and NIR photobiomodulation therapy is a non invasive, and highly effective adjunct therapy in the field of prevention as well as in healing.
Effective photobiomodulation wavelengths ranging from 633nm to 1128nm are employed for the maximum penetration depth to be effective on the fibroblasts in the soft tissue and osteoblasts in the bones. This is often referred to as Cold Laser/Low Level Light Therapy.

...The super-pulsed GaAs (diodes) in GaAs lasers give deep penetration without the unwelcome effects of Continuous Wave (lasers) such as thermal damage, as well as allowing for shorter treatment times.

We endorse the only light energized apparel developed by Lumiton. They have taken laser technology and invented clothing that transforms the sunlight into red and near-infrared light.
Lumiton has patented laser science infused into apparel. The fabric transforms the sun's energy into healthy red and near-infrared light for the body. Red and near-infrared light has been proven to increase collagen and skin hydration, stimulate the release of fat from fat cells, reduce inflammation, and reduce joint and muscle pain, among other benefits.
Now, on a daily basis enjoy what's been missing - a light-fueled health, athletic performance and comfort advantage.
