Phototherapy and Stem Cell Patches are two different types of treatment that aim to improve the skin’s condition. Phototherapy uses light to treat conditions like acne, psoriasis and rosacea. Stem cell patches use stem cells as a way to help improve the appearance of your skin. Both treatments are relatively effective, but a lifewave patch combines them, giving you the best solution! 

What are Stem Cell Patches?

A stem cell patch is a small piece of material that contains stem cells. The stem cells are taken from fat or bone marrow and can be grown in the laboratory to produce more stem cells.

Stem cell patches also have some benefits:

  • They increase blood flow to the injured area, speeding up healing time (particularly useful for burns).
  • They help reduce inflammation because they contain anti-inflammatory chemicals called cytokines (cytokine patches are often used for arthritis).

How do Stem Cell Patches Work?

Stem cell patches are a type of phototherapy. Phototherapy is a form of treatment that uses light to treat skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. The light stimulates the production of stem cells within your skin, which speeds up the healing process and reduces inflammation.

Stem cell patches are small transdermal patches that you apply to your skin once per day for three days in a row. After this short course of treatment, you’ll begin to see results from your new-found glow—it takes about one month for new collagen production to begin in earnest once you start using these patches regularly!


Phototherapy can be used as a standalone treatment or as an adjunct to other treatments. For example: If you’re experiencing severe acne that hasn’t responded to oral antibiotics or topical medications (like retinoids), your doctor may recommend photodynamic therapy (PDT). This treatment combines light with a photosensitizing cream that acts like a dye to target the skin bacteria causing your breakouts.

Another common type of phototherapy is low-level laser therapy (LLLT) which uses infrared light to stimulate cell growth and reduce pain associated with soft tissue injuries caused by sprains/strains or arthritis.

What is the process of phototherapy?

When you undergo phototherapy treatment at a clinic or hospital, the doctor will place gel on your skin before applying the lamps. The lamps use tubes of cold ultraviolet light that can be adjusted for strength and intensity depending on your condition. Phototherapy is often used in conjunction with other types of treatments, such as creams or injections, to help clear up symptoms faster than using only one type of treatment alone.

Benefits of using a Lifewave Patch

The lifewave patch is beneficial in a variety of ways. It can be used to help with pain relief, inflammation, and skin conditions. The patch can also be used to treat muscle spasms, nerve pain, and sleep patterns.

The patch is applicable anywhere on your body where there is pain or discomfort. If you are using the patch for more than one purpose (such as using it on your back for both inflammation and muscle spasms), it would be best suited to apply slightly more pressure when applying the patch so that it will stay in place during exercise or physical activity without falling off accidentally.

The versatility of Stem Cell Patches

  • Alleviate pain caused by osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Skin conditions like eczema, infections, and psoriasis.
