The first medical device for thin endometrium
Photobiomodulation (PBM), also often called Low Level Light Therapy, involves the utilization of light from the visible and near infrared portions of the spectrum at a relatively low power density that is insufficient to heat or burn tissue. Although PBM often uses lasers or led as the light source, its method of action is not thermal or ablative in any way. Rather, the photons themselves stimulate chemical changes within the cells, provoking biological reactions that benefit the body in a variety of ways - including increase in circulation, decrease of inflammation, and the triggering of neuroprotective responses by improvements in metabolism.
Luma Womb device delivers near-infrared light right into the uterus. The waves penetrate deep into tissues and create a chemical reaction that stimulate cells regeneration.
Why Luma Womb ?
Today there are no standard treatment guidelines for thin endometrium in reproductive medicine because available treatment (estrogen treatment vasodilatory medication, stem cells) achieve only minor improvements. Yet, the endometrium lining tend to get thinner with age. And the continuous increase of the mean age of bearing the first child, a growing number of women will suffer from a thin endometrium.
During the ovulation cycle, the endometrium will thicken to enable the egg to implant. It is generally considered that the threshold is 8/9mn. Below 8mn it difficult for the embryo to implant or to supply the nutrients necessary to maintain the pregnancy
Age : with age, the endometrium starts to thin.
Poor health of endometrial tissue : endometriosis, fibroids, polyps, trauma that damaged the endometrial lining.
Low estrogen (estrogen produces a vasodilatory effect on the uterine arteries).
Inadequate bloodflow (abnormal periods, amenorrhea).
