As technology becomes more sophisticated, aesthetic practices and physicians are able to expand their practices with non-invasive light therapy treatments for both skin rejuvenation and pain relief. The Perfectio X® by Zero Gravity® (Miami Beach, Fla.) fills the demand for anti-aging and skin rejuvenation therapies while promoting the healing process for many patient concerns. In addition, the Zero Gravity LED Cellular Rejuvenation system was founded to deliver the safest and most effective LED light therapy product on the market today.
The Perfectio X is a hand-held device that incorporates red light energy (610 nm to 670 nm) for tissue healing and regeneration, and near infrared light energy (830 nm to 850 nm) to boost skin-cell renewal and stimulate collagen production in the dermis. These wavelengths work together to firm and tighten skin, promote circulation of blood and oxygen and reduce inflammation. Physicians and practitioners benefit by increasing the scope of their practices to enhance cosmetic treatments, help improve patient recovery and reduce pain.
Derrick Burgess, MD, an orthopedic surgeon in Laurel, Miss., who specializes in sports medicine, has treated shoulder, neck and lower back pain with Perfectio X. “I use it on patients who have tried medicines and therapy without long-lasting relief, and it has provided the same or better amount of relief of pain,” he shared.
“My main patient is my wife, a pediatric dentist who suffered from neck and back pain due to her work,” he continued. “She has had therapy and takes anti-inflammatory medicine without relief. With the Perfectio X she gets immediate relief, which is sustained and allows her to work all day without pain.”
J. Melvin Deese, MD, the founder of Summit Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Surgery in Brunswick, Ga., finds that patients with degenerative arthritis as well as muscle strains respond well to the Perfectio X. He extends the applications to the cosmetic side of his practice, as well. “I use the Perfectio X with a medical-grade CBD cream as a lubricant for applying the technology to the affected area. But I also use it on the cosmetic side of the practice to open the pores and apply serums or treatment solutions,” he explained. “It is beneficial when applied to skin surfaces for remoisturizing and collagen production, and because it helps the skin heal quite nicely, we use it both before and after other treatments.”
The Perfectio X also helps dentists increase their patient volume by increasing their scope of cosmetic treatments. Steven Poulos, DDS, author of Secret Weapons for Painless Dentistry (Scottsdale, Ariz.), has a special interest in cosmetic dentistry and uses the Perfectio X in his practice. “I began using it on myself to treat TMJ and it greatly reduced the pain, so we use it for pain management now,” he shared. “Then I began using it first on myself, my wife and my staff for mild facial concerns and it now is a bonus in that aspect of our business.
“Our aesthetician is thrilled with the results for the under-eye area,” Dr. Poulos continued. “The skin of the eye is very fragile and some of our patients are leery of injectables or fillers, so the Perfectio X is the perfect treatment for that area. We also use it to augment fillers for quicker healing and enhanced results.”
Zero Gravity’s portfolio of products expands on light therapy treatments with devices like the RelaxatioTM with a wider surface area for muscle regeneration and to increase and oxygenate blood. The Sapphire X® uses an effective and unique LED light technology to disinfect skin and kill P. acnes bacteria to improve skin tone and complexion. Each device is backed by clinical studies and will benefit practices that desire to increase their treatment portfolio with safe, effective and non-invasive treatments.
