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 low 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
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.
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.
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.
