TYGON™ Ultra Lyte uses multi-wavelength LEDs to treat various conditions, including:
Acne, rashes, Radiation-Induced Dermatitis, ulcers
Post-Trauma – i.e., Burns, bruises, abrasions, fractures, sprain, strain, and more
Post-Operative wound care
Tendinitis, Osteoarthritis, and more
Bruises, Strains, Sprains and Fractures
Balance sleep patterns (i.e., Seasonal Affective Disorder – SAD)
Improve mood and energy
Broadly defined to include all biological phenomena involving non-ionizing radiation (Near ultraviolet, visible light, infrared, microwaves, radio waves). It is recognized that photobiological responses are the result of chemical and/or physical changes induced in biological systems by non-ionizing radiation.
The study and application of light with respect to health and disease. It is incorporated in various medical specialties, such as dermatology, optical diagnostics, cardiology, oncology, interventional radiology, sports medicine, surgical specialties and circadian rhythm sleep disorders.
Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT) or Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMT)
Under the umbrella of Photobiology and more specifically, Photomedicine, LLLT/PBMT has been extensively researched and implemented. LLLT/PBMT refers to the application of light as a therapeutic modality based on photobiomodulation (PBM) principles that have been shown to cause biological changes in living organisms as a result of the interactions of the photons in the visible or infrared wavelengths with molecules in cells or tissues.

- Stimulates collagen production to reduce wrinkles and scarring
- Stimulates healing through enhanced DNA production
- Reduction of inflammation
- Improved circulation
- Increase cellular energy via increased ATP production
- Pain reduction as a result of elevated endorphin production
- Enhanced immune response
- Reduction of swelling secondary to improved lymphatic drainage
The TYGON™ Ultra Lyte incorporates the concept of “Biphasic Response Dose” (Ohshiro and Calderhead’s LLLT-adapted version of the Arndt-Schultz curve), where low levels of light demonstrate superior ability to stimulate and repair tissues as compared to higher levels of light. As the dose increases inhibitory effects predominate which in turn worsen the clinical condition.
- Cytoprotection via upregulation of Cytochrome C Oxidase
- Anti-inflammatory, i.e. inhibition of Prostaglandin E2 production
- Keratinocyte, Fibroblast, osteoblast and vascular endothelial proliferation
- Tenocyte and Melanocyte proliferation and migration
- Stem cell proliferation and migration
- Increased protein synthesis, i.e., osteoglycin and mimecan in osteoblasts
In addition, the TYGON™ Ultra Lyte has integrated a highly sensitive laser skin temperature sensor to ensure that when used the therapeutic threshold is not surpassed and optimal treatment results are attained.
Most Common Advantages of LEDs in PBMT
- Multiple wavelengths available (from UV to NIR)
- Covers large area (arrays)
- Broad spectrum (25-30 nm bandwidths)
- Semiconductor chips (reliable)
- Long lasting (50,000 hours)
- Low power (can be battery operated)
- Minimal thermal effects (no pain)
