Product Description

Effective Treatment at Home!
Due to the popular demand for the Horizon Infrared device from medical doctors, chiropractors and physical therapists; Hill Laboratories proudly introduces the Horizon Mini. The Horizon Mini is an infrared therapy device FDA cleared for home use. With a powerful output of 350mW, you don’t have to visit your local practitioner to get quick relief from pain. Simply place directly on the skin and turn on. You’ll experience a slow thermal rise while your body’s cells absorb the infrared photons to create healing.

The Horizon Mini for Photo-Rejuvenation

  • A major cause of skin aging is a chronic micro-inflammation triggered by UV radiation and external pollutants.It has been demonstrated that red light reduces inflammation and infrared light enhances circulation. The specific wavelengths of light within Horizon Mini are medically proven to provide a drug-free, pain-free treatment for photo-damaged skin and wrinkles.

    Red and Infrared Light stimulate collagen synthesis and increase the amount of elastic fibers.

    Customers will notice a reduction of pore sizes, enhanced skin radiance and a reduction in wrinkles.

    A 2005 study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Laser Therapy “showed significant differences at week 12 follow-up; 52% of subjects showed a 25%-50% improvement in photo-aging scores by week 12; 81% of subjects reported a significant improvement in periorbital wrinkles on completion of follow-up.”

The Horizon Mini for Pain Management

  • The specific wavelengths of light within Horizon Mini are medically proven to provide a drug-free, pain-free treatment for pain and inflammation.Evidence indicates that cells absorb infrared and red light photos and transform their energy into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the form of energy that cells utilize. The resulting ATP is then used to power metabolic processes; synthesize DNA, RNA, proteins, enzymes, and other products needed to repair or regenerate cell components.

    A study in the Journal of Neurological and Orthopaedic Medicine and Surgery examined light therapy on various pain and inflammation conditions. The results are shown below.

    Tendonitis
    One hundred two patients were treated for TS/SCS, representing 200 total cases treated. Of the 102 patients, 94 (92.0%) had some type of previous treatment for these conditions. TS/SCS patient responses to treatment with skin-contact monochromatic infrared irradiation: 176 (88.0%) of the cases treated had total to excellent relief from the treatment in 1-12 applications.  Twenty-two total cases (11.0%) had fair to poor relief, and 2 cases (1.0%) had no relief. Results using the home therapy system were not statistically nor clinically significantly different than results obtained in the clinical setting.

    Capsulitis
    One hundred nonsurgical patients were treated for TMJ capsulitis, representing 195 total cases treated.  Total to excellent relief in 1-12 treatments in 173 cases (88.7%) was demonstrated. Nineteen cases (9.7%) had fair to poor relief, and 3 cases (1.6%) had no relief. Of the 28 postoperative cases treated for capsulitis, 23 cases (82.1%) reported total to excellent relief in 1-12 treatments. Four cases (14.3%) reported fair to poor relief, and 1 case (3.6%) reported no relief. Results with the home therapy system were not statistically nor clinically significantly different than with clinical applications.

    Myofascial Pain/Muscle Spasm
    Results of 361 case responses to treatment of myofascial pain/muscle spasm using skin-contact monochromatic infrared irradiation. The graph shows 324 (89.8%) of all patients treated had total to excellent relief in 12 treatments or less. Thirty-three cases (9.1%) had fair to poor relief overall, and 4 cases (1.1%) had no relief. Results using the home therapy system were not statistically nor clinically significantly different than with clinical applications.
