Photo – Bio – Modulation: Low Level Light Therapy

Low Level Light Therapy

Lasers or as we sometime call it low laser light therapy (LLLT) are instrumental in the stem cell field. Pablo Rosada, of the Institute of Regenerative Medicine in the USA has been using them for a number of years. Light therapy has many profound effects. It seems to have an effect on the production of Exosomes, it seems to activate what are called senescent cells. It also seems to activate Very Small Embryonic Like Stem Cells.

Lasers and light have a profound effect on many aspects of the cell. Light therapy goes down to the basics of cell biology. What we now know is that the mitochondria which are the powerhouses of the cells have photoreceptors. In light therapy there is absorption of photons in a portion of the mitochondria cells. This has a direct effect on the cellular electron respiratory transport chain. This involves the Krebs cycle which brings us back to biochemistry days.


The result in the improvement in the electron transport chain is greater production of ATP. ATP is the essential energy of most cells. If cells are exposed to more energy than they will typically be more efficient at doing their job. LLLT seems to paradoxically increase reactive oxygen species (ROS) in healthy tissue but most importantly it decreases ROS in those tissues which suffer from oxidative stress. So we have little effect adverse effects on normal cells from ROS but a significant positive effect on ROS in diseased tissue. The use of LLLT in patients involves mainly red and near infrared (NIR). The wavelength of this light is between 600-950 nm.

Low level light therapy have many profound effects on the cells. It appears that all genes from the antioxidant related category and genes related to energy metabolism and the respiratory chain were up regulated. It is thought that low level light therapy stimulates cell growth by influencing both directly and indirectly related to DNA synthesis and repair and cell metabolism. Stem cells are finicky enough. Anything we can do to nudge them along is so important. There is definitely more to come on this subject.

The team at Eyekandi are intrigued by LLLT, mitochondria, stem cell regeneration, and infrared light healing. Get in touch with us to share some insight, knowledge and ideas over a Bulletproof Coffee – We’d love to hear from you!

Dottir at Formland: Interior and Design Exhibition Denmark

Dottir, our long time partners in ceramic design and manufacture, will be featured at the infamous FORMLAND exhibition next year.

Formland Spring, the most inspiring Nordic Interior and Design Fair, is set to take place between Feb 1 – 4 2018 in Denmark.

Formland is a professional trade fair, where Danish designs are all gathered in one place at the same time.

Come and get inspired.

“The creative thinking behind all DOTTIR products are nurtured by the contrasts of Nordic living, with its dark cold winters and bright warm summer nights, it’s deep silent lakes and strong ocean streams.
All products express this arabesque of sweet wildness which gives a versatile and creative expression. We are in contrast to the minimalistic Nordic expression and see our selves as front runners for the next Nordic Design movement. In short. Less is a bore.”


2018 is going to be a big year.


We, at Eyekandi, partner up with like-minded people who want to ‘get things made’. Our partner comes up with the ideas, and we help with the design and manufacturing.

Color Matching Light Box, by Eyekandi

Check out this super cool machine we have made to check and compare textile and garment colors! It is our Color Matching Light Box.

Eyekandi engineers and developers see what the NEED is and create out of this world products and technology to our clients spec!

The lights used in this box vary from international standard daylight, to European and Japanese shop light, to an ultraviolet light source to USA shop light source to just name a few. The kelvins of the light (temperature) range from 2700K to 6500K!
