At Avery, we are always seeking ways to improve the surgical experiences of our patients — including your healing and recovery period.

One of the ways we do this is offering our patients healing facilitation options, including Healite LED Therapy treatments just before surgery and during their recovery period.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner. Dr Avery is a member of the two leading professional associations for plastic surgeons in Australia, ASAPS and ASPS. Their websites provide additional information regarding plastic surgery in Australia that you might find useful, please visit ASAPS and ASPS.

A relaxing and helpful treatment, and an example of the special consideration Avery always shows us, their patients.

How Healite can prepare you for surgery and assist in your recovery

Healite LED Therapy is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment with no down time. It is used to enhance your body’s natural cellular recovery, with clinical studies demonstrating improved healing times and relief of pain.

Our Healite LED Therapy device uses light at targeted wavelength 830nm to help the body heal after surgery and rejuvenate cells.

Your Healite Recovery

Why is it so great for your surgical journey?

The Healite LED 830nm (with 590nm photosequencing) targets wound healing.

Healite LED treatment encourages skin to heal after any trauma, including surgery. A course of LED treatments just prior to your surgery and for the four weeks after surgery can significantly reduce healing time, and also help reduce pain, swelling and redness.

Studies published by the manufacturers of Healite (Lutonic) have shown that skin cells grow 150% – 200% faster when exposed to the correct wavelength of LED light. By triggering biological changes that repair the skin at a cellular level and result in glowing, rejuvenated, healthy skin.

What are the contraindications for Healite?

Due to the nature of LED light, photosensitising medications as well as illnesses that cause photosensitivity are considered contraindications to the treatment.

The result of any treatment depends upon the individual skin metabolism of each person. It is important to understand that the speed at which results are achieved as well as the final outcome can never be exactly predicted. This is an adjunct treatment to your surgery and there are no guaranteed results or recovery outcomes.
