With all the different applications of the Photonic Health handheld lights and Pain-Free Pad systems, a lot of questions have arisen about illumination of the brain, the use of light and frequency to treat disorders of the brain, and if it will cause any damage.

In short, the Photonic Health light therapy devices do not cause brain damage. On the contrary, it is a viable treatment for mental disorders such as:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Dementia

Red light at approximately 660nm, at different application sites on the head, were instrumental in treating neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s, and dementia by not only stopping decline, but also stimulating improvement in cognitive performance, coordination (handwriting, walking) and speech.


Light and frequency not only help a diseased brain, but also improve general cognitive performance, sleep, memory and regulating the emotions. This is useful in the treatment and management of psychiatric disorders like:

  • PTSD
  • Addiction
  • Cravings

Light therapy applied to the brain can remodel brain pathways to treat addiction, getting rid of cravings that sometimes last for years.

In addition to all of these great benefits, applying the Photonic Health lights to the head and sinuses can relieve a number of ear, nose and throat related conditions. The Photonic Heath lights are great for finding some relief with irritating sinus and allergy issues.

Photonic Health light therapy devices can also be applied for cosmetic and dermatological disorders. Light therapy can help with hair loss, sun damage, wrinkles and acne. The Nova Luna Rejuvenating Face Mask utilizes light therapy and frequency to potentially improve the appearance of skin.
