About Photoactivation

Light is an underestimated form of energy in our everyday lives. An example of photoactivation can be made when considering Vitamin D conversion and usage by our body. I am sure most have heard that you can get Vitamin D from the sun. The process of obtaining Vitamin D is not directly from the sun but due to the conversion by light energy  which “activates” the inactive Vitamin D to an active and usable form in human bodies at the skin level. The process of photoactivation happens in various living organism forms, such as plants using light as a food energy source to grow.

Generally In living cells the “photomodulation will target flavins, cytochromes, iron-sulfur complexes, quinines, heme, enzymes, and other transition metal ligand bond structures” but is not limited to these components and has a world of benefits in regenerative medicine.
Photoactivation has an effect on human cells which should not be underestimated and instead utilized for our advantage in therapy. In regenerative medicine the case can be easily made for use of Photoactivation, as co-therapy, when using PRP and stem cell therapy (Click here to see PRP & BMC processing systems). Studies have been conducted and shown the activating and inhibiting ability of various wavelengths, bandwidth of wavelengths, duration, frequency, intensity of exposure as well as during the presence or absence of cofactors, enzymes or catalysts.

When deciding to use photoactivation consideration must be taken for the different parameters, as indicated above, of photomodulation which may have different or even opposite effects then that desired. For this case we highly recommend sticking to the technology utilized for specific cases and usage with PRP or Stem cell therapy. AcCELLerated biologics knows selection of variables is critical when choosing a photoactivating system and offer Adilight as the gold standard for photoactivation for PRP and stem cell therapies.
