HEALyte™

Light energy continues to make news for it’s remarkable ability to rejuvenate and heal the human body and no one knows the beneficial effects of light better than Dr. Patrick Bitter, Jr., the pioneer of  the internationally acclaimed photo-rejuvenation treatment, the FotoFacial procedure. Over his more than twenty years of experience with pulsed light technologies Dr. Bitter has introduced a number of new applications of light to treat a variety of conditions such as acne, scars, rosacea and skin aging. Now using Broad Band Light (also known as BBL), a specialized version of pulsed light from Sciton in Palo Alto, Ca, Dr. Bitter has discovered a benefit of using BBL in a specific method to reduce or eliminate pain from a wide variety of painful conditions affecting muscles, tendons and joints.
Intitially observing the unexpected benefits of pain reduction in his patients that he was treating for skin laxity with BBL SkinTyte, Dr. Bitter, focused on using BBL SkinTyte to treat pain from injured muscles and tendons in a number of his patients including himself. In a recent interview Dr. Bitter described his observations and treatment protocol with BBL SkinTyte as truly remarkable.
“The reduction in pain in the majority of treated patients was almost immediate after just the first treatment regardless of the the nature of the pain.” explained Dr. Bitter. “The treatment is remarkably simple to have done, taking only about six minutes and feeling like a warm massage. In most cases the pain goes completely away after one or two treatments. This is the easiest treatment that I do on people with most people describing a pleasurable effect during the treatment.”
The exact mechanism of action is not completely known but it is speculated that the broad spectrum red and infrared light and high energies are able to heat a large area and penetrate deeply into tissue to increase circulation, reduce pain in nerves, and stimulate gene expression changes as well as metabolic changes that help repair tissue while eliminating pain.
According to Dr. Bitter, “Red Laser light has been shown to reduce pain with a series of treatments and these treatments are referred to as Low Level Light Therapy. BBL light is quite different in that a much more expanded spectrum of red and infrared light is used at much higher energies. These higher energies rapidly heat up the treated areas to a specific temperature. Over a period of only six minutes of heating the beneficial effects of pain reduction occur.”
Dr. Bitter has developed a specific protocol of BBL that produces the best results. “Large areas can be treated in one session opening up the practical benefits of treating several joints or several areas of painful muscles at one time.” This exciting  break through may be a very useful treatment for a wide variety of conditions including sports injuries, arthritis, fibromyalgia and neuropathy. According to Dr. Bitter, the discovery of the pain reducing effects of Broad Spectrum Light is so important it needs to be introduced into any medical type settings were pain is treated.
Dr. Bitter has named the procedure HEALyte™ which stands for High Energy Absorbed Light Therapy™ to distinguish it from the Low Level Light Therapy with lasers.
Currently the HEALyte™ treatments are only available at the offices of Dr Patrick Bitter, Jr in Los Gatos, CA (Silicon Valley) but that will change as Dr. Bitter plans the first of his physician trainings in the near future.
