What is Light Therapy?
Skin has a wonderful ability to absorb light and utilize this energy to stimulate a healing response. Light therapy uses specific color wavelengths to penetrate different levels of the skin, providing a wide range of benefits.
The light energizes cells to produce collagen, provide improved circulation, kill bacteria, and eliminate toxins. In turn, skin becomes younger-looking, clearer, and more radiant. It also heals faster.
How Does It Work?
Skin absorbs the light. Skin converts light energy into ATP (cellular fuel). Energized cells perform at an enhanced rate due to increased RNA and DNA activity, like the cells in young skin, thus providing numerous healthful and beautifying benefits such as:
- Increased fibroblast activity for increased collagen and elastin protein production (multiple anti-aging benefits)
- The release of nitric oxide (anti-inflammation, anti-pain, and healing benefits)
- Increased circulation (rejuvenating and revitalizing benefits)

The Matisse™ was designed to give users and distributors the option of what handpiece to use. It works with 9V handpieces, which include the one from Nouveau Contour plus at least one other model that looks virtually identical. Both are made of smooth aluminum, are light-weight, ergonomic, and relatively quiet.
Both handpieces take twist-and-click needles, such as those that Nouveau Contour offers, plus other unbranded but very effective needles with the same design as the German needles.
