What is LED Light Therapy?

LED Light Therapy devices have been used and recommended by medical spas, estheticians, dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and their clients for over a decade. The Celluma is a low-level-light energy device based on NASA technology and FDA Cleared to treat many musculoskeletal and skin conditions. When this beneficial light is applied directly to the skin it can help to increase collagen and elastin production, reduce inflammation, increase circulation, speed healing and destroy acne bacteria. This makes it a truly state of the art treatment for both Anti-Aging and Acne.

Celluma’s patented delivery system emits three specific wavelengths of modulated light. Patented, pulsed-wave technology controlled by proprietary software algorithms add to the applicability of the Celluma. It is a polychromatic device that delivers blue (465nm), red (640) and infrared (880) light energy simultaneously to safely treat a wide variety of conditions easily and affordably. The benefits of using three different wavelengths is that light absorbing molecules use the various wavelengths as a signaling mechanism for different cellular processes. For example the various wavelengths and the red, blue and infrared lights reduce inflammation, stimulate collagen production, and some kill bacteria, while others enhance localized circulation.

There are no known adverse effects to either practitioner or client. Compared to low-level light therapy delivered by certain lasers, there is no harmful thermal effect to tissue and no danger to the eye. This makes the Celluma a viable, safe, and affordable alternative to cold lasers which have similar indications for use.

LED treatments are completely non-invasive and do not produce any thermal damage or pain and require zero down time. Treatments times are approximately 30 minutes and are perceived as pleasant and relaxing.

Benefits of Infrared Light Therapy
  • Increases circulation: The increased circulation heals and repairs damaged skin tissue. This increase in circulation also causes the body to rid itself of wastes and toxins. Stimulates the production of collagen which lessens build up of scar tissue.
  • Reduces overall redness, skin damage, and dilated capillaries.
  • Improves healing of acne, lessen coarseness, and help sun-damaged skin.
  • Skin that feels and looks younger.
  • Wrinkle reducer and diminishes skin effects from aging, smoking, and weather.
  • Increases lymphatic system activity. Research has shown that the lymph vessel diameter and the flow of the lymph system can be doubled with the use of light therapy.
  • Increases RNA and DNA synthesis. This helps damaged cells to be replaced more promptly. RNA, Ribonucleic Acid, a polymeric constituent of all living cells.

 

Red Light Therapy benefits for Anti-Aging and Inflammation
led-info

Red LED stimulates collagen and elastin production and tissue repair which can reduce and even reverse the effects of aging and damage to skin and other bodily tissues. It does this by activating the cellular renewal process, while restoring and protecting the surface of the skin. The effectiveness of using red and infrared light therapy to stimulate rejuvenation in damaged tissues has been documented in more than 2,500 research papers, and approximately 100 double blind studies.

The Red LED treatment is gentle and natural much like the process of photosynthesis, also known as photo biostimulation, the stimulation of life processes with light. The system uses both visible red and infrared light energy to stimulate your body’s own regenerative metabolism at the cellular level. By stimulating the body’s tissues to convert light energy into cellular energy (ATP), a treatment provides the energy your cells can use.

  • Stimulates collagen formation
  • Increases ATP {fuel for our cells}
  • Stimulates cell turnover
  • Minimizes mild scaring
  • Reduces hyper-pigmentation
  • Minimizes pore size
  • Reduces wound healing time
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Smoother and improved surface texture
  • Reduces pigmentation
  • Increases circulation and moisture retention.

Who needs and can benefit from Anti-Aging Red LED?

As we all age, our skin loses some its ability to heal and reconstruct itself, components such as collagen and elastin, necessary in maintaining the physical appearance and vitality of skin, decreases in production; scar tissue, toxins and waste build-up (acne, wrinkles, sunspots, hyper-pigmentation, etc.) increases the appearance of physical flaws. Varying frequencies of low-level infrared and visible red light give the skin the necessary aid to reduce these, and many other, signs of aging.

 

Blue LED Light Therapy benefits for Acne and associated Inflammation

acne-led-info

  • Minimizes {inflamed and non-inflamed} acne conditions
  • Emits a single oxygen molecule to retard the growth of bacteria
  • Proportions bacteria: 90% of the contributing factors to acne.

LED Blue Light is the latest FDA-approved treatment for inflammatory acne (acne vulgaris). This cutting edge acne treatment utilizes non-UV light which kills acne bacteria in the skin and repairs cells which were damaged by inflammation. Acne Blue Light Treatment is simple, painless and extremely effective. You typically come in once or twice a week for four to eight weeks. During the 30 minute treatment sessions a soft blue color light is applied on the skin while you rest with your eyes closed. There is no sensation of heat or discomfort. You should see skin improvement after the first treatment.

How Does Blue Light Destroy Acne Bacteria?

Blue Light produces singlet oxygen in the skin, a bactericide that is deadly to P. acnes bacteria which causes acne. The chemical changes inside acne bacteria cause its self-destruction. This eradicates the bacterial colonization in the sebaceous glands. The gland’s sebum production slowly normalizes which reduces body’s immune response. With bacteria absent, skin’s inflammation gradually subsides which is followed by reduction in skin’s redness and pigmentation.

Blue Light Treatment is extremely effective in stimulating the body’s immune response which encourages our own healing processes. Therefore, the treatment can be effectively used by itself or in combination with red light, and/or topical products. Blue light can be used on any part of the body including face, back, chest and buttocks. It is also incorporated in treatment protocols for collagen stimulation, pigmentation, wrinkle reduction and rosacea treatments.

Is Blue Light (LED) Treatment Safe?

Because acne blue light therapy does not emit ultraviolet (UV) rays, unlike other light therapies used in the past for treatment of acne and acne related conditions, it is extremely safe and can be administered in series of multiple treatments.

Can Blue Light Treatment Be Performed On Ethnic Skin?

Acne Blue Light can be performed on any skin type. If fact, it is a great treatment for ethnic skins, due to the fact that African-American, Hispanic and Asian skins are often not candidates for certain treatments due to high chances for side-effects. Blue light is a treatment that is color blind and can be performed safely and effectively on any skin.
