Vielight Intranasal Light Therapy is a simple, safe and effective way to improve your general wellness with just 25 minutes of use each day. The small light clips on your nose and illuminates the dense network of capillaries inside the nasal cavity.
The technology is based on decades of scientific research. Scientists in Russia, Eastern Europe, China and other countries have researched the effects of light energy of specific wavelengths (colors) and intensities on blood of everyday people and athletes. The benefits are comparable to what is achieved by intravenous blood irradiation performed in medical centres, but without needing doctors or needles.
There are three Vielights to choose from: the Vielight 633 Red and the Vielight 655 Prime emit red light for general wellness, while the Vielight 810 Infrared emits infrared light for the brain and nervous system as well as general wellness. I have used the Vielight 655 Prime for more than two years and I find it relaxing as well as experiencing the long-term health benefits.
The Science behind Vielight Intranasal Light Therapy
Light energy has positive effects on red blood cell structure, thus enhancing their ability to take up oxygen, while also improving blood flow and reducing blood pressure. Red light in the 663–655nm (nanometer) wavelength range and infrared at 810nm are ideal for photobiomodulation as these wavelengths have high absorption coefficients in blood and tissue and low energy densities compared with shorter wavelengths like UV light. This is the ideal range, because it has a high enough photon energy intensity and absorption to produce biological effects, but not so high as to create excessive heat in the body tissues.
Light of specific colors and intensities stimulates the mitochondria (energy factories) of cells, including red and white blood cells, thereby increasing energy and enhancing immune system function.
Specifically, cytochrome c oxidase, the last enzyme in the respiratory electron transport chain of mitochondria is able to absorb red and infrared light and use this energy for the synthesis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This ATP is the primary transporter of chemical energy within all the cells of the body.
Infrared light (in this case at 810nm) can enter the brain from the nasal cavity and stimulate cytochrome c oxidase enzyme activity and oxygen consumption by nerve cells, thus leading to increased energy and improved function and healing capacity.
It takes the heart less than one minute to pump blood to every cell in the body. In fact, the entire six quarts or so of blood can fully circulate throughout the body at least three times within that minute. Therefore, illuminating the blood in the nasal region, where a large surface area of capillaries are exposed near the surface, soon irradiates the entire blood supply and it also influences the lymphatic system. There are more capillaries per square centimeter just below the surface membrane in the nasal cavity than just about anywhere in the body.
Benefits of Vielight Intranasal Light Therapy
The advantage of Vielight Intranasal Light Therapy is that there is no introduction of foreign substances to the body, no needles or pills to swallow and no side effects.
Vielights are durable, portable, pocket-sized and run on a single AA battery for up to three months. I use a rechargeable battery to be more environmentally friendly and save money. Intranasal light therapy is supported by scientific evidence and it is complementary to dietary supplements and medications. Also, after you invest in one you have no ongoing costs like you do with supplements.
More than half the people who have used intranasal light therapy have reported experiencing fast improvements from the following conditions: headaches, migraines, facial pain, sinus congestion, blurred vision caused by poor circulation, some bacterial and viral infections and pain. They have found relief even overnight from chronic fatigue and sleep disorders. And within two weeks they report improvements from high blood sugar, high blood pressure, impaired circulation, high LDL cholesterol, traumatic brain injury, mild cognitive impairment, chronic low immunity, depression, nasal polyps, some autoimmune illnesses, epilepsy and more.
This is based on studies, observations and feedback, using the device for 25 minutes once a day. Observed improvements don’t necessarily mean a cure and improvements may not always be significant, but some users have reported dramatic improvements where other treatments have not succeeded.
Three intranasal Vielight Models
Vielight intranasal devices combine solid state technology with intranasal diodes built from transparent high impact polycarbonate to ensure quality and durability, making them into a lifetime investment. All models come with a one year warranty.
Vielight 633 Red
This is a non-laser intranasal light therapy device. The basic specifications include an optimally engineered diode (LED) emitting photons within the visible red spectrum (633 nm) wavelength powered by a calculated dosage of energy to irradiate the capillary-rich nasal cavity.

Vielight 655 Prime
This is the laser equivalent of the Vielight 633 Red device. This device utilizes a low-level (or “cold”) laser diode to release coherent light in the visible red spectrum (655 nm), powered by a calculated dosage of energy to irradiate the capillary-rich nasal cavity. The energy generated by this version is lower than the 633 Red resulting in a more power-efficient design.
Because it is a laser, users shouldn’t look directly at the light. NOTE: This item can only be shipped to countries outside of the United States.

Vielight 810 Infrared
The Vielight 810 is a non-laser intranasal light therapy model. Engineered for gentle brain stimulation, this device complements the systemic effects of the Vielight 633 Red and Vielight 655 Prime. Near-infrared photons at 810nm are invisible to the naked eye.
The 810nm near infrared wavelength enables photonic transmission past the intranasal channel to the deep ventral brain areas. Neurons are well-suited for photobiomodulation because they contain mitochondria. Before and after QEEG (Quantitative electroencephalograph) images show the Vielight 810 inducing restorative activity in the brain per 25-minute session.
Sleepiness is a common side effect of using this device due to the 10 Hz pulse rate of the beam correlating with alpha brain waves and because of neuronal stimulation.

Conclusion and Recommendations
You can use the Vielight once or twice daily for 25 minutes each, but don’t add in extra treatments in a day to compensate for any missed treatments. When doing two sessions a day you should have a break of at least six hours between treatments. It is hands free and each treatment is timed for 25 minutes. You just press the button to start and after 25 minutes the Vielight beeps three times and shuts off. I am having a session right now as I finish writing this review.
The Vielight can be used by only one person at a time, but if more than one person will be using it, you can buy additional nose pieces so that each person can have their own for their individual treatments.
I use my Vielight almost every night, usually during meditation or lying in bed. The nose clip comes with a rubber sleeve on the clip to grip your nose for when you are moving about or exercising, but I find it much more comfortable to remove the rubber grip and it still stays comfortably in place while sitting or walking. I also like to swap over to the other nostril halfway through, but be very careful doing this if you are using the 655 laser model! I close my eyes when moving it over and I’m careful not to point it directly towards my eyes.
Personally, I can attest to excellent immunity since I started using the Vielight, and feelings of wellbeing and relaxation after each use. It is one of the main components of my healing regime along with my near-infrared sauna. That is why I feel happy and confident to promote these devices so that others can reap the benefits. A friend of mine with Parkinson’s has already been using both the Vielight 655 and the Vielight 810 for over a year now and I also purchased one for my sister who uses it all the time.
