Aw man! I was going to launch my latest line of healing crystals and snake oil products today – Guess you beat me to it! Seriously though: I feel bad for the poor desperate or naïve people who fall for these scams :(
@andrewdavidj Thanks for commenting! I understand your initial skepticism -- I had a similar sentiment towards light therapy (also known as photobiomodulation, or low-level laser therapy) prior to launching Joovv back in 2016. Before Joovv, I spent my entire career in traditional medtech leadership positions at companies like Medtronic and Covidien. I initially thought it was “woo woo” science, but as I started to dig deeper into the peer-reviewed clinical literature, I was surprised (and excited) about what I learned. Light therapy is a non-invasive treatment that delivers concentrated wavelengths of light to both superficial and deep tissues. It has been around for a while, but it gained national attention when NASA started researching it in the 90s. As I mentioned above, it's important to note that the benefits of light therapy have been studied in depth in more than 1,000 peer-reviewed scientific papers and clinical trials. Should you have any additional questions specific to Joovv and/or light therapy, check out our extensive library of educational articles at https://joovv.com/pages/learn. Thanks again, Andrew!
How does your product differ that from Class IV Light Force Lasers ( FYI, I worked with a physical therapist before)? I can understand it being helpful at an epidermal level, but I want it to target deeper. It doesn't look like your product is designed to be put on the skin or pressed further in. Plus reading the FAQ such as " should keeping my clothes on when using joovv?" doesn't sound right. When we applied laser therapy to patients they HAVE to have the place that is affected/inflamed to be uncovered by clothing for the best results. When talking about how your product is good for the eyes, is it at a level >650 nm? https://biology.stackexchange.co... https://www.nationalgeographic.c... Thanks.
@jessehojjensen Great questions! I'll try and tackle them one by one. As LED technology has advanced over the past decade or so, you can now deliver laser-like power with medical-grade LED drivers. This is important for a few reasons: - LED technology is far less expensive than lasers, which allows for this type of therapy to be affordable for in-home use. - Some lasers can be complicated to use and may require technical operators. Alternatively, LED-based devices are very easy and convenient to use. - If not used appropriately, laser devices can heat up and have the potential to cause burns. In terms of depth of penetration, near infrared wavelengths of light (vs. red) have the unique ability to penetrate into deeper tissues, even through bone. So long as the device delivers clinically-relevant power (or irradiance). With our products, we don't recommend skin-to-device contact as that may result in the unnecessary production of heat. And because we have independent, 3rd party testing that confirms the total amount of energy (joules) delivered to the body, we feel pretty confident with our recommended treatment distance from the device. Yes, any type of clothing will block the light wavelengths from reaching your body. That's why we recommend treatments with bare skin. For example, if you're using our full-body systems, you would need to be fully nude. But if you're using one of our smaller, targeted devices, that's not the case. Specific to eye safety, our devices are registered with FDA. As part of that process, we have to conduct IEC photobiological safety tests, one of which is meant for eye safety. Our devices deliver red wavelengths at 660nm and near infrared wavelengths at 850nm, and have passed the aforementioned safety tests. I hope all of this his helpful, and if you'd like to learn more about how to use our devices specifically, this is a great article: https://joovv.com/blogs/joovv-bl... Thanks again, Jesse!
Relatively new to me, but my only current regret is not be able to go bigger initially! Mostly purchased for joint pain/inflammation... got almost immediate relief in my knee... now just trying to move it around to cover. ALL the surfaces! Expecting more great things!
@jj_k So great to hear about your experiences! Thanks so much for sharing!
After hearing about Joovv on multiple podcasts, and seeing the toll this East coast winter is taking on my skin, I finally looked up the red-light product. Similar to exposing your body to real sunlight, red light therapy involves exposing your body, or area of your body to an infrared light. It might sound simple, but the impact those red bulbs can have is powerful. Personally, red light therapy has helped me immensely with inflammation, but it also touts numerous benefits like increased athletic performance and skin damage restoration. Have you tried light therapy?
@lindsay_fuce Thanks so much for hunting us! It's great to hear about your positive experiences with our red light therapy devices!
Hey @lindsay_fuce and the @product community, Thanks for hunting Joovv! We’re so stoked to be featured! We started Joovv back in 2016 as a side hustle, and never imagined our company would take off like it has. After launching our first light therapy product in early 2016, we followed that up with several others, including the first full-body modular system designed for convenient, in-home use. Light therapy (also called photobiomodulation, or low-level laser therapy) is a non-invasive treatment that delivers concentrated wavelengths of light to both superficial and deep tissues. After spending most of my professional career in traditional medtech with companies like Medtronic and Covidien, I was skeptical of the therapy at first. But after digging into the published, peer-reviewed research on light therapy back in early 2015, I was blown away by the sheer amount of science that supports it. By way of background, light therapy has been around for a while, but it gained national attention when NASA started researching it in the 90s. And as I mentioned above, it’s important to note that the benefits of light therapy have been studied in depth in more than 1,000 peer-reviewed scientific papers and clinical trials. It’s an exciting time for Joovv and the broader photobiomodulation community, and we’re learning more ways on how it can be used to really impact people from all walks of life. Here’s a bit more on how light therapy works, and how we went transitioned Joovv from a side hustle to a high-growth consumer health business: Our origin story: https://joovv.com/pages/our-story Does light therapy really work? https://joovv.com/blogs/joovv-bl...
