The Development of Phototherapy Phototherapy uses light to heal or treat a medical or aesthetic condition. Phototherapy balances wavelengths, intensity and exposure (pulse) duration to tailor each treatment to specific needs and conditions. In the early 80's, a new method of light-based therapy, selective photothermolysis, was developed. The theory of selective photothermolysis maintains that by optimizing certain application parameters, the practitioner can target a specific chromophore while minimizing the effect on surrounding tissue. Most light-based technologies, like laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), rely on light energy to effect clinical changes while they filter out the subsequent heat. They filter out the heat created by the light flash or pulse. Because they filter out the heat instead of using it, they require very high fluences for clinical efficacy, high fluences that require skin cooling techniques to protect the client from burns. Radiancy felt there had to be a better way.
LHE advances the principles of selective photothermolysis by utilizing the dual energy pathways of light and heat to gain the greatest advantage of the light/heat relationship. Patented internal filters protect the skin and proprietary algorithms take full advantage of the skins thermal absorption characteristics. These innovations create the exact balance of light and heat necessary to achieve clinical efficacy in a variety of clinical applications. Because it uses low fluences, LHE’s natural fusion of light and heat creates a far more efficient photo thermal technique. The addition of direct heat increases overall effectiveness and lowers fluence to ultra safe levels. Lowering fluence allows us to eliminate the need for skin cooling techniques, simplify the treatment process and minimize risk of harmful side effects, making it safer, easier and more cost effective.
Dr. Hogan and the entire Regatta Chiro team are truly a blessing. I first began seeing Dr. Hogan for chiropractic care, but soon started visiting regularly for facials and massages with Orlando. Her beautiful office in Regatta Commons is peacful and always a joy to visit! Do yourself a favor! VISIT!
I cannot say enough about Shawna and staff. Shawna saved my back throughout my pregnancy, and now treat my newborn son with the same love and care! The entire office has become our second family.
I had friends refer me to Dr. Shawna Hogan and I could not be more grateful. She really took the time to get to know me and understand my medical issues prior to major adjustments that could really cause harm in my circumstance. After following a treatment plan to include adjustments and massage (Orlando is awesome) I am blown away by how great I am feeling. I didn't realize how bad my pain actually was until I didn't feel it anymore. The entire office is always welcoming, easy to schedule with and always so friendly!
Shawna is patient and kind. She really takes her time and aims to help you in any way she can. I'm currently 34 weeks pregnant and having chiropractic care for the first time in my life. I've had several issues with my hips and lower back and since getting regular adjustments I've noticed a huge difference in my mobility and pain level. I'm also sleeping like a baby! Every pregnant woman should make an appointment now.
Shawna is awesome! My wife and I meet with her today about getting care for our son and she went far beyond what we expected, we are very happy that she will be helping our son.
Shawna is the best in Destin. She has changed my life! If you have doubts about chiropractic, you better give it a try. It will change your life too! Don't just stop there, take advantage of the great specials they are always running on massages, facials and other great beauty and feel good treatments! You feel and look great after a visit to Regatta Chiropractic!
I love being able to come in and get a facial, massage, and an adjustment all in one place! Dr. Hogan and her team are so genuine and knowledgeable.
I love this place!!! Shawna is my chiropractor and Orlando is my massage therapist. Its no coincidence that they are consistently the Best In Destin. I refer all of my Pilates clients to regatta chiropractic.
