Anti Aging LED Light Therapy
There are many devices on the market for LED therapy, however, there are only 3 in the UK CE certified with scientific clinical data supporting it’s effectiveness. Afterall, anyone can go and buy a red bulb and sit under it. There are specific depths each light is required to penetrate to be effective. Our chosen Celluma LED does just this.
So how can we safely and effectively reduce and even reverse the effects of aging? Collagen! Healthy collagen levels are what give us a glowing complexion, firm skin, strong nails, dense bones, and healthy hair. It is also essential in keeping muscles, joints, and tendons in healthy working order. Simply put, the more our bodies produce collagen, the better we’ll look and feel as we get older.
When it comes to aging, a significant factor that leads to wrinkles, fine lines, and joint pain is due to inadequate collagen levels. Collagen is the main structural protein found in your skin and other connective tissue. Collagen literally holds our bodies together. An easy way to remember what collagen does is to look at the Greek prefix ‘kolla’ which means glue.
Increased fibroblast proliferation is just one benefit of LED red light therapy. Fibroblasts make collagen fibres, so it stands to reason that the more, and healthier, fibroblasts we have in the skin, the more and better collagen fibres are made.
Proven red and near-infrared wavelengths are utilised in the LED right therapy devices to combat the signs of aging. These specific wavelengths of light energy are clinically verified to enhance your body’s natural ability to generate collagen and elastin by activating the fibroblast cells.
Treatment time is approximately 30 minutes. Most patients experience immediate results and leave their skin feeling like it is glowing. Stiff, sore and painful joints may experience improvements with one to three sessions. Keep in mind that results vary from patients to patient depending on the severity of the condition and adherence to protocols.
Celluma’s anti-aging LED therapy is designed to truly change the way people rejuvenate and recover any wound healing, we have the technology to give our bodies the boost to heal naturally. No prescriptions. No medications. No injections. No surgery. Just safe, natural wavelengths of effective, proven light energy.
Blue LED Light Therapy Acne Treatment
Celluma has more FDA clearances than any other panel-style light therapy device, so you can rest assured you’re getting high-quality blue light acne treatment that’s backed by science.
Acne is a persistent medical skin condition that can affect your face, chest, back, shoulders, and arms, and although it does not necessarily impact our physical health, it can absolutely take a mental toll. Acne can make us feel ugly and self-conscious, wanting to retreat in our homes and hide from the world. And although acne is totally normal and nothing to be ashamed of, it can still place unnecessary stress on everyday life.
When a particularly extreme acne breakout happens, it can feel like nothing works fast enough to get us back in the clear. LED Light Therapy for acne is a tremendous treatment option for fast results.
Why is Celluma Light Therapy for Acne Different?
Safety and effectiveness should always be the priority. Celluma is CE registered and FDA cleared for the treatment of acne and is one of the few professionals grade devices cleared, Because of Celluma’s unique ability to mold to the treatment area to improve cellular performance on a microscopic level, skin cells are able to absorb even more light energy in less time, speeding up the acne elimination and skin healing process. Because of the ability to place the device close to the skin, Celluma outperforms many even more expensive devices that cannot mold closely to the treatment area.
LED light therapy works by killing acne-causing bacteria at the source, deep beneath the skin’s surface. As people across the nation are searching for more natural, chemical-free alternatives to traditional medical solutions, light therapy fits the bill perfectly. Blue LED light therapy emits specific, clinically-proven wavelengths of light to trigger an all-natural effect in human tissue, killing acne-causing bacteria, decreasing inflammation, and improving skin tone, texture, and clarity from the inside out. However, not all light therapy is created equal.
Blue and red LED light light-therapy is widely used as an effective option for the treatment of inflammatory acne. One study concluded that “…blue light and red light may act synergistically in improving acne by combining antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action, rendering phototherapy with blue and/or red light an effective and safe treatment for acne vulgaris.₁
Pain and Joint Pain Relief with Near Infa Red Light Therapy
The flexible nature of the Celluma LED light allows us to encase a thigh or arm to aid the relief of discomfort in specific areas, whilst also allowing for close contact to the skin.. Compared to red or blue light therapy, near-infrared wavelengths can penetrate deep into the muscle and joint tissue to alleviate pain, increase circulation and decrease inflammation.
It was originally developed by NASA engineers for pain management and injury treatment on long-term space missions, light therapy is used today as a safe and natural method of treating a variety of pain and skin conditions.
How Does Light Therapy for Pain Work?
In the same way that plants grow by getting their energy from the sun during photosynthesis, Infrared light therapy — or “low-level light” therapy — uses specific, proven wavelengths to stimulate a natural response in human tissue that can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, ease muscle pain, relieve joint stiffness, and enhance overall cell performance on a microscopic level. Infrared light therapy works by boosting cellular energy to encourage and enhance the body’s natural healing abilities.
When tissue is damaged, pain occurs. Human tissue can be compromised in a variety of ways; a sprained ankle, a surgical procedure that didn’t heal properly, or even an overly intense gym session can all cause bodily discomfort and emotional distress. Pain can be short-term or long-term, and because it presents itself differently in every person, it can be extremely difficult to treat.
Wound Healing with LED Light Therapy
Light therapy has been shown to accelerate tissue repair, decrease wound size and accelerate wound closure as well as other beneficial effects. These mechanisms have been demonstrated to promote dermal wound healing as well as reduce the pain associated with the healing process. The Celluma is intended to be used for dermal wound healing referring to the treatment of surface wounds existing at the outer 2mm of the skin and including normal, acute post-surgical and chronic wound healing including but not limited to diabetic ulcers.
Low level-light therapy has been shown decrease a patient’s recovery time while reducing discomfort levels and enhancing overall outcomes. It is ideally suited following any ablative procedure as well as pre and post-surgery for the following reasons:
• Phototherapy has been shown to accelerate tissue repair, decrease wound size, accelerate the resolution of erythema, accelerate wound closure and prevent dehiscence¹.
• Phototherapy prior to surgery may reduce the incidence of hypertrophic scars and keloids ².
• Ongoing post-surgery photo-rejunvenation² (activation of fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin, stimulation of keratinocytes which produce keratin to provide structural strength to the skin).
• Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation prevention².
• Activation of mast, macrophage and neutrophil cells can decrease inflammation and protect against infection.
• Phototherapy is anti-bacterial. The presence of P-acne bacteria can lead to post-operative infections, particularly in shoulder surgery. Using the professional grade LED light therapy prior to surgery can decrease the presence of this bacteria
Celluma is not FDA-cleared for wound healing, however, there are several scientific papers to support it’s use and is going through the process to be approved.
