Scientific Reference List


"A course of BIOPTRON light therapy leads to complete recovery and significant improvement in 92% of children, while the effectiveness of drug therapy does not exceed 70%. Positive changes are noted after the 1st light treatment, while the 2nd or 3rd procedure reduces coughing, throat hyperemia, improves the nasal breathing, sleeping, appetite, reduces fatigue and irritability" - Dr. Natalia A. Zhevago, MD, PhD Specialist in Photomedicine and Photoimmunology, Institute of Cytology, Russian Academy of Sciences, St. Petersburg, Russia.

Beneficial Effects of BIOPTRON Hyperlight Therapy in Newborn Babies & Children

BIOPTRON Hyperlight Therapy treats the above conditions by relieving pain and inflammation, by promoting a faster healing response and by strengthening the immune system. BIOPTRON Hyperlight is so simple to use! It is painless, completely safe and keeps children and their parents happy.

Recommended daily treatment time: 4-10 min.


From a helpless newborn to a crawling one-year-old, your baby’s growing skills are a wonder to behold with daily surprises. Scrapes and cuts are part of every child’s early years – the BIOPTRON Hyperlight will help them through these times, effectively treating minor wounds, injuries and bruises, relieving pain and inflammations as well as the common cold and asthma by stimulating the immune system.

BIOPTRON Hyperlight Therapy is a safe, clinically tested and medically certified therapy for children and newborns to treat:

  • Pediatric dermal affections
  • Endogenous eczema
  • Allergic respiratory diseases, such as asthma
  • Infections of the upper airways (common cold, sinus infections, tonsillitis)
  • Minor wounds, injuries and burns (bruises, rash, redness of the skin, etc.)
  • Muscle, joint and bone conditions (arthritis, muscle spasm, sprains, strains, etc.)
  • Sports injuries (sprains, strains, contusions, tendonitis, ligament and muscle tears)

Additional indications for newborns:
  • Dermal affections, such as phlebitis, decubitus (pressure ulcers), intertrigo
  • Skin rash (diaper area)

For the treatment of newborns, do not use the BIOPTRON light in the eye area and use the provided blindfold. In children under six years of age and newborns, it must be applied under the supervision of a physician/pediatrician.

Eczema in Children

Eczema cannot be cured, but it can be controlled. BIOPTRON Hyperlight therapy offers a gentle way to treat eczema, without side effects. BIOPTRON Hyperlight Therapy treats eczema in children by:

• Relieving pain

Bioptron Hyperlight Therapy reduces pain by stimulating the production of the molecules which decrease the over-stimulation of somatic peripheral nerves.

• Reducing inflammation

Inflammation is a common side-effect in some indications that could deteriorate tissue condition. Bioptron Hyperlight decreases the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines (such as IL-6 and TNF-a), reducing locally the inflammation of affected epithelium.

• Promoting wound healing, reducing the healing time

Bioptron Hyperlight increases the mobility and migration of fibroblasts, the key cells in all human tissues. Bioptron Hyperlight promotes these processes that are pivotal for tissue regeneration and wound healing.

• Regenerating damaged skin

In addition to accelerating the regeneration of skin cells, Bioptron Hyperlight increases the production of collagen, the skin support. Bioptron Hyperlight therapy fosters the recovery of skin to a healthy and functional state.

• Stimulating the immune system

Bioptron Hyperlight stimulates the immune system at different levels to increase its response to external pathogens. Bioptron prevents and treats superficial bacterial infections in children.

• Increasing anti-bacterial factors to fight infections

Bioptron Hyperlight contains blue light, well-known for its intrinsic antimicrobial effect. Bioptron Hyperlight prevents the development of bacterial infection.

Respiratory Diseases

Allergy and infections of the upper respiratory airways are very common conditions in children.

Infections in children are mostly caused by viruses. Younger children are particularly prone to these and may have several episodes of infections per year. Any child can develop allergies, which are abnormal immune system reactions to things that are typically harmless to most people. Professionals and parents are focused on monitoring children for symptoms and establishing treatments to relieve the symptoms

In these conditions, BIOPTRON Hyperlight Therapy treats upper airway problems in children by

  • Reducing pain
  • Decreasing the inflammation
  • Diminishing the frequency of recurrent infections
  • Strengthening the immune system

Bioptron Hyperlight Therapy reinforces the immune system of children at different levels. It stimulates the production of specific cytokines (small molecules acting as messengers between immune cells) that activate the cellular immunity, increasing the capacity of the human body to fight against viruses and bacteria. Bioptron Hyperlight Therapy also decreases the level of inflammatory markers and enhances some cellular mechanisms of immune cells, like antibody production and phagocytic activity of monocytes and granulocytes (capacity to ingest and destroy particles, such as viruses or bacteria). The immune cells responsible to orchestrate a coordinated and effective immune response are more active and structurally modified to give a precise defence.

Bioptron Hyperlight Therapy helps the children to fight more effectively against the infection. It also helps in treatment of upper airway problems, such as:

  • Common cold
  • Sinus infection
  • Tonsillitis
  • Allergic asthma
  • Allergic rhinitis

Treatment of Pain, Wounds and Inflammation in Children

BIOPTRON HyperLight Therapy is a medically certified treatment that promotes faster wound healing and relieves pain and inflammation. These symptoms are common in several types of ailments affecting bones and soft tissues in children.

  • Inflammation or bruised veins after needle insertions
  • Pressure sores in premature babies or newborns in the intensive care unit
  • Traumatic injuries
  • Skin rashes in the diaper area

Symptoms of musculoskeletal disorders in children:

  • various types of arthritis (juvenile arthritis, joint inflammation with fever and skin rash, etc.)

Traumatic injuries:

  • Bone fractures
  • Surgical wounds
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Lacerations
  • Sprains and strains, etc.

Bioptron Hyperlight Therapy is medically certified to treat these affections in children in the following way:

  • Accelerates the regeneration of soft tissues (skin and underlying tissues, muscles, tendons, ligaments)
  • Relieves pain
  • Decreases the inflammation of the affected zone
  • Reinforces the immune system, decreasing the risk of infection, thus accelerating the healing process
  • Improves microcirculation
