HPL QUANTUM HYPER POLARIZED LIGHT FOR WOUNDS, BURNS & INFECTIONS

 

BIOPTRON® Quantum HPL significantly reduces the time required for the complete epithelialization (dermal regeneration) of damaged skin and reduces scar formation. It helps to accelerate healing time, reduces the length of hospital stays, and improves the overall quality of life.

HPL Therapy is an extraordinary technology that offers an effective and economical treatment for complex and non-healing wounds, on any part of the body, including those caused by diabetes, vascular disease, high blood pressure and other health problems.


HPL Therapy considerably enhances the natural regeneration processes of the tissues, for faster wound healing with minimal scarring. HPL Therapy reduces the risk of infections, decreases the number of costly wound dressings, shortens hospitalization stay and promotes overall wellbeing.

HPL is clinically tested and certified for the medical treatment of:

  • Wounds following trauma or surgery

  • Burns

  • Skin grafts

  • Venous leg ulcers (stasis ulcers)

  • Decubitus (pressure ulcers)

  • Diabetic foot ulcers

  • ​Infections​


HPL Therapy accelerates the reparative cellular processes, decreasing the risk of infection and diminishing pain during the whole healing process. The regenerated tissues are more elastic, healthy and scar-free.

Hypertrophic scarring and superficial second-degree burns can be treated with conventional local medical treatments in combination with HPL treatment. Multiple studies have shown that the routine use of HPL for the treatment of these burns can significantly reduce the time necessary for complete epithelialization of the damaged skin, thereby reducing the risk of scar formation, which is functionally and aesthetically undesirable. Furthermore, HPL can reduce the need for surgery in the treatment of deep dermal burns, particularly those located in areas where the likelihood of scar formation after surgery is extremely high.

HOW HPL TREATS WOUNDS?

 

HPL increases the mobility and migration of fibroblasts:


In every wound, the regeneration of tissues is a pivotal process.

HPL increases the mobility of newly-formed fibroblasts, a critical process to wound healing.

HPL promotes the expression of the binding factors that support this migration, contributing actively to the faster and healthier regeneration of the damaged skin. (Publication ongoing).

HPL increases collagen production:
HPL increases the production of endogen collagen, giving to the connective tissues the structure and stability necessary for elasticity and skin strength. HPL therapy fosters the recovery of tissues to a healthy and functional state (De Melo et al., 2016).

HPL improves microcirculation:


HPL increases the blood flow in irradiated capillaries, boosting the oxygen and nutrients supply, as well as the uptake of nocive substances produced by damaged cells. HPL therapy provides to the new-formed cells all they need to favour healthy tissue regeneration (Samoilova et al., 2008).

HPL promotes angiogenesis:


Chronic wounds are very often characterized by poor and deficient blood supply, which could slow down and delay the recovery. BIOPTRON HPL promotes angiogenesis by developing new capillaries. The increased number and length of capillaries contribute to healthy tissue regeneration and shorter recovery time (Gasparyan et al., 2005).

HPL decreases the risk of infections and reinforces the immune system:


Infections are a major risk factor in chronic open wounds that negatively affect wound management.

HPL contains blue light, which is very well known for its intrinsic antimicrobial effect, without the addition of exogenous photosensitizers.

The regular use of HPL prevents the development of bacterial infection (Opel et al, 2015). In parallel, HPL Therapy increases IL-6, which increases the production of IgM antibodies by B lymphocytes, providing defence against blood-borne pathogens (Fenyo et al., 1992). The secretion of IFN-γ is as well promoted, reinforcing the microbicidal and antiviral action of natural killer cells (Zhevago, 2006).

HPL diminishes inflammation:


HPL decreases the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, such as TNF-α, and increases anti-inflammatory cytokines, such as TGF –β and IL-10, in the irradiated region, reducing locally the inflammation of affected epithelium (Falus et al 2011, Zhevago 2006).

HPL relieves pain:


Constant and intolerable pain is disabling and devastating in patients with chronic wounds. Pain impairs wound healing and slows down patient recovery. HPL Therapy reduces pain by stimulating the production of nitric oxide, which decreases the over-stimulation of somatic peripheral nerves and increases vasodilatation, diminishing in parallel the ischemic pain (Gaspariyan et al., 2005; Samoilova et al., 2008).

"The wound healing effects of HPL therapy is undoubtedly associated with improvement of blood microcirculation, enhancement of the trophic function of blood, but also with increase of concentration in blood serum of growth factors and some cytokines" - Professor Samoilova, PhD, DSci, Prof International leader in Photobiology and Photomedicine.

HPL is a highly valuable choice of treatment in avoiding surgery in patients with deep dermal burns, which often require the surgical removal of dead skin and subsequent transplantation (i.e., skin grafting): – No risks associated with surgery – Less pain – No skin grafts necessary

HPL THERAPY HEALS WOUNDS BETTER, FASTER, & REDUCES PAIN, DISCOMFORT & SCARS

With the addition of the C60 fullerene, HPL is converted into  Hyper harmonised quantum light with perfect geometric structure, which influences exposed cells to harmonise with its perfect molecular structure, restoring damaged, diseased or unhealthy cells to healthy, functional, perfectly structured cells.

BOOK YOUR TREATMENTS ONLINE, BY PHONE, OR IN PERSON

For general application, covering a typical range of symptoms, we offer a selection of treatment courses.

If your symptoms require more intensive, or long term treatment, please book a consultation and we will customise a treatment plan for you.

 

Our wound, burn & infection treatment plans are for single or double applications of therapy.

(If you require more than two applications per treatment, please book a consultation and we will customise a treatment plan for you).

Single applications are for when one area is to be treated.

Double applications are for when more than one area is to be treated or when combining C60 HPL with colour HPL therapy.

You can book 2 or 4 weeks of therapy. (1 week is 5 daily treatments)

Each treatment takes only 10 minutes.

Appointments last 15 - 30 minutes.

To book online, click “book now” on either single or double application Treatments.

Select date & time of your first treatment. & click “next”

You will then be offered the option to select your treatment plan.

After making your payment you will then be able to book the remaining treatments.

 

If you prefer you can come in or call & we will book or amend your appointments for you.

Single Wound, Burn & Infection (W.B.I.) C60 HPL therapy treatments.
