Celluma LED Light Therapy

What is Light Therapy?

 

Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy is the application of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. 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, reduce ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm and arthritis.

Using LED Therapy.

 

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 maximum benefit, a 30-minute treatment is recommended. Whenever possible use over clean, dry, bare skin as lotions, creams, serums and clothing may decrease effectiveness by restricting light penetration. Blue, red and near-infrared are the most commonly used wavelengths in LED phototherapy. These specific wavelengths are well researched and scientifically proven to produce therapeutic benefits. Blue penetrates through the epidermis and is known to kill P.acnes bacteria. Red penetrates into the dermal layer and has been shown to enhance collagen and elastin production through photo-biostimulation of fibroblasts. Near-infrared penetrates deepest and increases micro-circulation (tissue repair), decreases inflammation and attenuates pain.

Red Light Therapy: uses red LED light therapy uses red LED light to treat everything from acne eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and wound healing.  Red light therapy promotes collagen production, which is why this treatment has become widely popular as an anti-aging treatment to improve skin texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, fight age and sun spots, and reduce hyperpigmentation.

Blue light therapy uses blue LED light to treat acne, hyperpigmentation, oil production, and other common skin concerns.  This therapy is said to be most effective when used with other skin treatments like clarifying facials, and chemical peels.  Blue light is most sought-after for its ability to kill P. acnes, the acne-causing bacteria that live on the skin's surface.
