Celluma LED Light Therapy
Celluma LED Light Therapy is a non-invasive treatment that can be used to treat acne, fight wrinkles, and ease pain. Using technology developed by NASA, the Celluma helps compromised cells regenerate by utilizing a combination of blue, red, and near-infrared light. The light is absorbed by photoreceptors in our cells, which produces energy that fuels various metabolic processes.
The blue light penetrates through the epidermis and kills acne-causing bacteria. Red light goes into the dermal layer, which promotes collagen and elastin production that will improve skin tone and texture. The near-infrared light penetrates the deepest to increase micro-circulation and tissue repair and decreases inflammation and pain.
In just 30 minutes, the user will experience these benefits and more. The Celluma treatment can be used practically anywhere on the body. Having clean skin is best when using the light, as lotions or makeup can block the light from penetrating fully.
What is low-level-light therapy?
Low-level-light therapy or photobiomodulation is based on Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology and is the application of light energy to the body for therapeutic benefits. It promotes a natural photobiochemical reaction similar to the process of plant photosynthesis. The energy delivered by the LEDs has been shown to enhance cellular metabolism, accelerate the repair and replenishment of damaged skin cells, as well as stimulate the production of collagen — the foundation of healthy, smooth skin. Research has shown that LED light therapy may help smooth skin texture, improve skin firmness and resilience, increase lymphatic system activity, restore skin’s natural cellular activity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and superficial hyperpigmentation. The treatment is for all skin types, and is non-ablative, non-invasive, painless, and requires absolutely no downtime. Patients or clients can return to their normal activity immediately after the treatment.
For what purpose is light therapy used?
Based on extensive research, low-level-light therapy devices have been cleared by the FDA, and shown to manage:
- Mild to moderate acne vulgaris
- Superficial, benign vascular and pigment lesions
- Periorbital wrinkles and rhytides
- Sub-optimal local blood flow and circulation
- Minor muscle and joint aches
- Minor muscle and joint pain
- Pain and stiffness associated with arthritis
- Minor arthritis or muscle spasms
- Minor chronic neck and shoulder pain of a musculoskeletal origin
LED Light Therapy Acne Treatment
Acne is a persistent medical skin condition that can affect your face, chest, back, shoulders, and arms, and although it does not necessarily impact our physical health, it can absolutely take a mental toll. Acne can make us feel ugly and self-conscious, wanting to retreat in our homes and hide from the world. And although acne is totally normal and nothing to be ashamed of, it can still place unnecessary stress on everyday life.
When a particularly extreme acne breakout happens, it can feel like nothing works fast enough to get us back in the clear. LED Light Therapy for acne is a tremendous treatment option for fast results.
Are there any harmful side effects to low-level light therapy?
LED devices are considered extremely low risk when used as intended.
Does Light therapy hurt?
No. Light therapy is non-invasive and is painless when used as intended.
How safe is light therapy?
Low-level-light therapy is based on light emitting diode (LED) technology developed for NASA-manned space flight experiments. In comparison to lasers, the patented LED technology generates negligible amounts of heat and is not considered a significant risk device.
Are there any special preparations required before using Celluma?
Celluma should be in close proximity to the area being treated. Skin should also be free of clothing, makeup, or anything else that may deflect light away from the skin.
Why do I need to remove my makeup?
Many makeup formulas contain minerals that may deflect light. Clean, freshly washed skin is recommended for best results.
Can I apply makeup after a Celluma session?
Yes. You may resume all normal activities immediately following use.
Who can use Celluma?
Celluma should not be used on children under 12, or over the breast or stomach of a breast-feeding or pregnant person.
