- No side effects
Intranasal phototherapy is the simple way to maintain your natural internal balance. Low-level light rays irradiate the bloodstream and promote homeostasis2 , helping you regulate everything from metabolism to blood pressure, and more.
Vielight is a multipurpose therapy system
Originally developed in Russia as an intravenous cannula, phototherapy was refined by the Chinese, who realised that the dense network of capillaries around the sinus glands would allow for quick and effective transportation around the bloodstream.
It soon hit the market as a non-intrusive, commercially available clip to be placed in the nostril, and has since sold over 10 million units. The reason for its popularity is simple; it works quickly and effectively on a whole variety of illnesses and imbalances.
By promoting the right chemical activity in the bloodstream at a cellular level, intranasal phototherapy works across numerous mechanisms of action to achieve its profound therapeutic effects.
Vielight alleviates a range of conditions
The most popular use for Vielight in Russia is for rhinitis and sinus allergies3 . China, however, has explored the many different ways phototherapy can improve health, and put the VieLight to work on many conditions.
Blood pressure and cardiovascular disease4 are two main benefactors — largely because these are conditions that begin in the bloodstream. By normalizing cell aggregation (that is, preventing red blood cells from sticking together), Vielight keeps a healthy flow around the body.
Vielight also helps maintain healthy lipid levels — it's been shown to increase high-density lipoprotein ('good cholesterol') by over 12%, while reducing low-density lipoprotein ('bad cholesterol') by over 9%. It's also proved effective against neural conditions such as insomnia, Alzheimer’s Disease, and Parkinson's Disease5 .
Nitric oxide (NO) levels can also be improved by the light’s activation through the blood vessels behind the nose (that picture used in said article speaks 1000 words).
Improved NO levels have been implicated to have many health benefits including dilating arteries and blood vessels and hence improving arterial condition and blood flow.
Users have observed an improvement in other conditions such as schizophrenia, migraines, trigeminal neuralgia, diabetic neuropathy, and low immune system. The simple reason for this vast array of healing properties is down to Vielight's ability to support the right chemical changes6 at a cellular level, which spread easily and quickly around the body via the bloodstream.
Vielight is an antiaging tool
Over time, free radicals accumulate in the body, causing tissue and organ damage. This oxidization process is the key element in the physical and biological effects of aging. By harnessing reactive oxygen species (ROS), Vielight acts as a potent antioxidant — removing free radicals from the body. It also boosts NAD+/NADH, a family of enzymes that play a crucial part in life span regulation and homeostasis.
Want to stay healthy, in control, and full of vitality? The solution's simple; let the light into your life.

Q. How do you compare the LED vs Laser for the Vielight intranasal light therapy device?
A. There are some papers that suggest that low level lasers are more effective than LEDs - several websites publish these to support their products. However, these studies are based on transcutaneous/transdermal (applied to the skin) applications, not on intravenous or intranasal blood irradiation. There are anecdotal reports claiming the superiority of the laser version for certain conditions; the two in particular are sleep disorder and chronic anxiety. For a better appreciation, one has to revert to actions at cellular and molecular levels.
The actions of the enzyme in the electron transport chain in the mitochondria, cytochrome c oxidase is now commonly accepted as the photo-acceptor that catalyses cellular level activity when red to near-infrared red light hit the cells. The mechanisms involved in intranasal light therapy involves a somewhat different process, but the point is, whether there is a difference in the outcomes between LED and laser.
Basically, the cells and the body systems respond to the combination of the wavelength of the light and the energy dosage. The coherent light in lasers can have more concentrated energy than the normal non-coherent light in LEDs, even though most commercially available semi-conductor low level laser diodes have a built-in divergence of about 57 degrees. But at low level intensity, does it matter?
One of the most vocal expert’s about this matter, advocate for photobiology and Professor Emeritus of Stanford University, Kendric Smith has this to say; “All too often the laser phototherapy literature is written as if a laser is magical. Laser emitted radiation follows, except for coherence, all of the same laws of physics and chemistry that the same wavelength of radiation of a conventional, non-coherent, light source…” 
In addition, leading scientist in low level laser therapy, Tiina Karu says: “No significant difference was found for growth stimulation regardless of whether the light used was generated by a laser or from light of the same wavelength from a filtered incandescent lamp.” 
In a landmark NASA-sponsored study published in 2001, scientists have found LED therapy to be effective for faster wound healing and significantly more pain reduction. 
When using LED instead of laser diodes, the Vielight 633 compensates for the lost coherency by increasing the energy output- so that we can compensate for the difference in efficiency. In the end, we will see the same dosage at the cellular level.
In the case of intranasal light therapy applications, because we are in the realm of well under 10 mW in energy output and dealing with much thinner dermal layers, the increase is so small that the user does not feel anything. The membrane inside the nasal cavity is thin enough that a LED diode with some recalibration will achieve the same result as the laser diode.
The bottom line is that the Vielight 633 has the same effective outcomes as a laser device, the only difference is that the LED device is a bigger drain on the battery because of the additional energy requirements.
