What is Light Therapy?
Originally researched and developed by NASA, low-level light therapy is the application of light energy to the body & tissue to help compromised cells regenerate. It produces a natural photobiochemical reaction similar to the process of plant photosynthesis, and has a wide range of beneficial applications across many medical fields, including the treatment of skin, muscle, joint and pain conditions. The light (photons) energy is absorbed by photoacceptors in the mitochondria and used to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The ATP produced then stimulates various metabolic processes which can result in the repair and regeneration of cell and tissue components. It increases the production of collagen & elastin, increases blood circulation and decreases inflammation. Phototherapy is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties and has a variety of applications across many medical fields.
How long does it take to work, will I feel anything & is it safe?
For maximum benefit, a 30 minute treatment is recommended. Most people feel, or see, an improvement with one or two uses. LED therapy is a highly versatile modality and can be used as a powerful stand-alone or add-on treatment to most spa menu services. For optimal results, it is important to use the Celluma on a regular basis – we recommend twice a week for 6 to 8 weeks. There is little or no sensation as Celluma helps tissue heal naturally from the inside out. Afterwards you should feel rejuvenation and experience less pain. It is: Non-toxic, non-invasive, effective for teenage acne & adult onset acne as well as wrinkles, arthritic pain, muscle spasms, muscle & joint pain, muscle tissue tension, decrease inflammation and increase micro-circulation. In just minutes a day, you’ll be on your way to a clearer, smoother, more radiant complexion without abrasive chemicals, harmful UV-rays or side effects.
How does it work for acne?
When P. acne bacteria builds up in pores, skin becomes inflamed, causing acne lesions and blemishes. Blue penetrates through the epidermis and is known to kill P.acnes bacteria. Celluma light therapy works safely and effectively to destroy this acne-causing bacteria — not only clearing up existing blemishes, but preventing future breakouts before they happen.
How does it work for anti-aging?
Using wavelengths that are scientifically proven to stimulate fibroblasts to increase collagen and elastin, Celluma’s low-level light therapy is a safe, effective and convenient way to achieve a healthy, youthful glow in a natural, non-toxic, non-invasive manner. It will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while experiencing an improvement in skin texture, quality and smoothness.
How does it work for pain?
Scientifically proven, near-infrared light penetrates deepest and increases micro-circulation (tissue repair), decreases inflammation and reduces pain in order to to relieve arthritic pain, muscle and joint pain and stiffness, Celluma provides compromised cells with the energy to regain and restore vitality naturally. Its powerful, deeply penetrating wavelengths are absorbed by photoacceptors in the mitrochondria. This process increases the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) — the fuel that drives all cells. This boost of cellular energy results in a cascade of metabolic events leading to an increase in micro-circulation, tissue repair, and a decrease in inflammation and pain.
