Celluma (LED Light Therapy)
Acne ~ Anti-Aging ~ Pain ~ Wound Healing
We’re pleased to offer a new, high-tech way for you to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while experiencing an improvement in skin texture, quality and smoothness: Celluma LED Light Therapy Treatments. Celluma is unique and quite unlike any other low-level light therapy device available today. Based on NASA research, Celluma delivers blue, red and near-infrared light energy simultaneously to safely treat a wide variety of conditions. Each wavelength is absorbed by different molecules that act as a signaling mechanism for different cellular processes. For example, some reduce inflammation and some kill bacteria, while others enhance localized circulation.
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
Are there any harmful side effects to low-level light therapy?
LED devices are considered extremely low risk when used as intended
Does light thereapy 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.
Does light therapy utilize UV light?
No. Celluma utilizes a combination of blue, red, and near-infrared (not visible to the naked eye) light emitting diodes (LEDs) only.
How long does a Celluma session last?
Thirty (30) minutes.
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. Please refer to the User Manual for a complete list of contraindications.
