Celluma LED low level light therapy. FDA cleared to treat acne, wrinkles and pain!
LED therapy is not new to skin care but it's definitely getting more popular and with good reason. The results speak for themselves!
LED therapy is also known as low level light therapy. It refers to the delivery of light to the skin to treat a variety of skin conditions. This technology effectively increases the production of collagen & elastin, increases blood circulation and decreases inflammation.
The process is similar to how plants convert energy from the sun to grow. Skin cells absorb the specific wavelength particles of light, convert them into energy then power the metabolic process. Think of it as a gym workout for your skin!
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, some kill bacteria, while others enhance localized circulation.
Excellent to treat a variety of conditions such as:
*Muscle Tissue Tension
*Diminished Local Circulation
**For best results, this 30 minute treatment is recommended two times per week for at least 4 weeks.
(1) 30 Minute Session - $30
Come at least once a week and receive $5 off each session.
Incorporate during your massage service for only $20
*Be sure to mention this when booking your massage to see if it's a good fit to incorporate for that session.
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
Peri-orbital 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 therapy hurt?
No. Light therapy is non-invasive and is painless.
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.
Do I need to lie down to use Celluma?
No. You can use Celluma while sitting or lying down. For example, there are two ways to use Celluma when targeting the lower-back region: sitting comfortably in a chair with Celluma curved horizontally around the lower back area, or lying down with the device placed on the lower-back region. The Celluma may also be placed vertically on the spine following the natural curvature of the body. The key benefit of its design is the unique ability to mold its shape to conform to the profile of the body. Do not lie directly on top, lean against or apply full body weight to the device.
What’s the best position to use Celluma?
The best position is the one that is most comfortable for the user. The user should be either seated or lying comfortably with adequate support. Never strain or twist in order to use the device. Instead, mold the device to the desired body part. For arms or legs, Celluma may be wrapped around the body part. Once positioned, sit back, relax, catch up on a podcast, use your laptop, or take a nap.
How close should Celluma be placed to the treatment area?
Position Celluma as close to your skin as possible, the closer the better. One key advantage to Celluma is its patented flexible design, which allows for close positioning to the skin, and may lead to more effective 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.
