The Bioptron Light Therapy System

The BIOPTRON Light Therapy System is a worldwide patented light therapy medical device with a specific optical unit emitting light that is similar to the part of the electromagnetic spectrum produced naturally by the sun but with no UV radiation.

BIOPTRON Light Therapy can act in a natural way by supporting the regenerative and rebalancing capacities of the body and therefore help the body release its own healing potential. Once delivered to the tissues, the light energy promotes the process of bio stimulation (which means that it stimulates diverse biological processes in organisms in a positive manner and thereby enhances body functions).

General Benefits

BIOPTRON Light Therapy can be used both as a complementary treatment to support conventional medical methods and as monotherapy for certain indications.

BIOPTRON can help:

Dermatological disorders and skin problems
Promote wound healing
Relief pain and decrease its intensity
Seasonal Affective Disorders (SAD)

The outstanding characteristics of BIOPTRON Light enable the light to penetrate not only the skin but also the underlying tissues. BIOPTRON Light has bio-stimulative effects: when applied to the skin, it stimulates light-sensitive intracellular structures and molecules. This initiates cellular chain reactions and triggers so-called secondary responses, which are not only limited to the treated skin area.

BIOPTRON Light Therapy stimulates and modulates reparative and regenerative processes as well as the processes of the human defence-system.

The BIOPTRON Light Therapy has become accepted as a new form of treatment in prevention, therapy and rehabilitation for the medical indications listed below.

Bioptron for SAD Seasonal Affective Disorders (‘Winter Depression’)

The long nights and dull days of winter can cause some people to experience feelings of low mood; this is called Seasonal Affective Disorder – SAD or ‘Winter Depression’. SAD is believed to be caused by an imbalance in the production of a ‘sleep hormone’-melatonin. The increased light levels can cause the reduction of ‘sleep hormone’ production and thus reduce the related SAD symptoms.

Light therapy is a standard treatment of SAD and other related symptoms such as:

Chronic fatigue syndrome
Lowered motivation
Increased need for sleep

BIOPTRON Light Therapy provides an effective light spectrum, with no UV radiation with minimum of 10,000 lux which is beneficial for the SAD treatment.

Bioptron for paediatric indications

BIOPTRON Light Therapy can be used on children as a complementary therapy in various types of conditions, such as:

Paediatric dermal affections
Allergic respiratory diseases and upper respiratory tract infections Musculoskeletal and neurological disorders

Skin diseases are common in children; up to 15% of children suffer from allergic eczema and skin infections (caused by viruses and bacteria) occur frequently. Skin diseases can be distressing for children (and their parents) because of skin soreness, constant itching, loss of sleep and embarrassment about the appearance of skin lesions on the face or hands.

BIOPTRON Light Therapy provides a child-friendly treatment that can help to promote skin healing and reduce the discomfort associated with skin disorders.

Younger children are prone to viral infections of upper airways (i.e. nose and throat), having the frequent episodes of the illness per year what can result in a significant loss of days at school.

BIOPTRON Light Therapy can help to treat these conditions by stimulating the immune system and promoting a healing response.

BIOPTRON Light Therapy is clinically proven and has been used to promote wound healing and to relieve pain and inflammation.
