Bioptron light therapy

Bioptron light therapy is a safe and effective treatment for adults and children
for various types of pain, skin issues, scarring, and aging-related skin conditions.


Bioptron light therapy:

  • Activates cell growth
  • Improves the body's defence system
  • Stimulates the whole body's healing processes
  • Effectively reduces pain from arthritis
  • Helps reduce scarring and skin blemishes
  • Targets wrinkles and fine lines
  • Boosts the production of collagen and elastin

History of light therapy

The healing power of natural light has been documented for thousands of years. The ancient Greeks called it ‘heliotherapy’ and used natural light to help heal various medical conditions. In 1903, celebrated Danish physician, Niels Ryberg Finsen received the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his research into light therapy and its healing properties.

In our modern lives, most of us spend over 90% of our time indoors, shielded from natural light and its potential benefits.


How does it work?

Bioptron light therapy uses a range of light wavelengths to penetrate the skin at different depths, activating cells, accelerating local blood circulation and stimulating the whole body's regenerative processes. It is completely UV – free, so there is no risk of adverse side-effects.

What does it treat?

Age-related skin issues

The penetrating polarised light has been proven to help reduce fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness, elasticity, and uneven skin tone - resulting in healthy, youthful skin.

Skin complaints

Bioptron light therapy penetrates deep into the skin targeting and destroying bacteria that cause acne flare­ups. It is also used to treat eczema, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis and herpes skin infections.


Bioptron light therapy has been reported to be beneficial in the improvement of residual scarring remaining as a result of various skin conditions, (e.g. extensive acne vulgaris).


Bioptron light therapy is effective in treating muscular pain and pain associated with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, lower back pain, shoulder, and neck pain.
