LED Light Therapy

Celluma LED Light Therapy is a revolutionary FDA-approved treatment proven to accelerate skin regeneration and healing. Based on NASA LED technology, LED phototherapy helps increase collagen and elastin production, destroy acne bacteria, reduce inflammation and speed healing of damaged skin, thereby reducing fine lines and wrinkles, evening out skin tone and helping heal stubborn acne and rosacea conditions. Celluma LED Light Therapy is an effective treatment for musculoskeletal conditions such as arthritis, joint and muscle pain or stiffness. LED Light Therapy does not utilize UV light.The treatment is for all skin types and will not abrade any part of your skin, is non-invasive, painless, with absolutely no downtime. Clients can return to their normal activity immediately after the treatment. FDA Cleared technology based on NASA LED research.

Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy is the application of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. Low Level Light Therapy includes LED & Cold LASER (under 1W power). The energy is used to improve cellular performance.  Phototherapy is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties and has a variety of applications across many medical fields. Research has shown that phototherapy can:  increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone, texture and clarity, ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm and arthritis.

Celluma panel has three different types of LEDs; Blue, Red and Near Infrared. However, we recommend to use ONLY  Blue or Red  LED setting in our facial treatments.

The Blue, or Acne, setting on the Celluma LED panel.

BLUE LED

The Celluma panel has approximately 115 Blue light emitting diodes that emit energy in the blue portion (465 nanometers) of the visible light spectrum. Blue LED is FDA cleared to treat Inflammatory Acne Vulgaris.

P. acnes is the bacteria that causes acne, and it is known to produce a large amount of porphyrins within the bacterial cell. These porphyrins can be photosensitized with Blue LED to create an oxygen molecule. P. acnes is an anaerobic bacteria, which means it can not live in the presence of oxygen. So when P. acnes is in the presence of Blue LED these porphyrins create an oxygen molecule, which ends up killing the P. acnes bacteria.

red led

The Red setting on the Celluma LED panel is useful in anti-aging treatments.

RED LED

The Celluma panel has approximately 115 Red light emitting diodes that emit energy in the red portion of the visible light spectrum (640 nanometers). Red LED penetrates deep into the layers of the skin, to a depth of 8 – 10 mm. Red LED is beneficial in healing inflamed acne, wounds, cuts, scars and infections. It is also recommended as a post-care treatment after fractional laser, dermal rolling or needling, chemical peels, electrodessication and micro or dermabrasion

Traditionally, we use topicals, peels and lasers to clear up damaged collagen and stimulate the production of more regular, new collagen. Light emiting diodes (LEDs) trigger photomodulation, a non-thermal, non-ablative cellular stimulation. The application of LED triggers a photobiochemical response, activating fibroblasts (cells that are responsible for producing collagen and elastin)  deep in the dermal and subcutaneous layer to promote healing and repair in these layers. LED photomodulation can also suppress collagenase, a collagen-degrading enzyme that can accelerate our skin’s aging process. In addition, LED can also stimulate the energy-producing mitochondria to enhance wound healing and decrease the inflammatory response.

Celluma has the unique feature of combining these three wavelengths of light to create a powerful treatment for our skin therapy practice. The Blue setting also includes a small amount of Red and Infrared, useful in stimulating an anti-inflammatory response. The Red setting has the most equal amounts of Blue, Red and Infrared, which is extremely useful in anti-aging treatments, the management of Rosacea and any other inflammatory issues on the face. The Infrared setting has the smallest amount of Blue, and also some Red for stimulating the fibroblasts between 8 – 25 mm into the skin.

Red light allows skin cells to replicate more efficiently and aids in the healing process. The outcome of this increased cellular energy and better circulation leads to improved tone, texture, color and overall health and vitality of the skin.

Blue light destroys acne bacteria, decreases inflammation and stimulates lymphocytes.

In skin care, near-infrared waves warm the skin to make it more permeable to skin care products, relax muscles prior to massage, and increase circulation.
LED Therapy is extremely safe for most people, but may be contraindicated for those who have a history of epilepsy, severe migraines or those taking photosensitive medications. LED can be a standalone service or added to any skin care treatment.
