BioBeam 660 Acne Light Therapy, a Low-Level Narrow Band
Red Light Medical Device for Treatment of Acne, is Now Available
(press release from DERMALOGIX COSMEDICS PTE LTD)
August 21, 2005 -- Introducing the BioBeam 660 - a drug free, pain
free, risk free, low level narrow band red light medical device clinically
proven to treat all types of acne for young and adults. The BioBeam 660 is a
small handheld device sold as a OTC device for use at home. It emits a low power
red light (660nm) which does not emits heat and does not hurt or burn your
BioBeam 660 is not a laser device but emitts Low Level Narrow Band (LLNB) Red
Light both at Continuous Wave (CW) and/or Pulse Wave (PW). The light albeit
non-coherent is still effective for the treatment of Acne and related skin
problems. Therefore BioBeam 660 provides all the benefits of lasers yet at much
BioBeam 660 is a Class 2A phototherapeutic medical device and complies with
Annex VI of the Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC and is CE certified (CE
0473). BioBeam 660 has been found to be a fast and effective treatment for
acne. Recommended illumination is 1-2 times a day, six minutes on each area. The
device is lightweight and portable and can be used anytime anywhere, at home or
in the office.
A double blind clinical study by Dr Earon Gideon - Earon Clinics and Dr
Avikamharel of the Pediatric Dermatology Outpatients Clinic in Dana Medical
Center, Ichilov Hospital Israel clearly demonstrated the efficacy of the BioBeam™
660. The results of these works were presented by Dr. Avikam Harel and Dr.
Gideon Earon at the 6th International Conference of Pediatric Dermatology in
Toronto in 1992 and were enthusiastically received in medical circles. Patients
in the study all suffered from Acne Vulgaries, with comedones and pustules on
their face and a feeling of inflammation. After six weeks of treatment the
following encouraging results were recorded:
20% - complete recovery
50% - almost complete recovery
20% - considerable improvement
Nodules cure was very significant (p=.02) and comedones cure was significant
Just 10% of patients showed no improvement
The BioBeam 660 is a phototherapy device. Phototherapy, the use of light for
healing, has been a field of rigorous research for 40 years, and light's
curative properties are well documented. During the last several years,
accelerated research performed by NASA has confirmed what many have asserted.
For the past two decades, the medical properties of light have been investigated
rigorously, both in the laboratory and in the clinic, to delineate its
mechanisms and potential clinical applications. This work has proven that LLNB
light alters a number of cellular processes, including protein synthesis, cell
growth and differentiation, cell motility, membrane potential and binding
affinities, neurotransmitter release, ATP synthesis, and others, similar to
photosynthesis in plants. Further, different wavelengths have been shown to
produce different healing effects at the biochemical, cellular, histological,
and functional levels.
