LED Light Therapy - Celluma
LED Light Therapy - Celluma
Treats: Acne, Wrinkles (and wound healing) Aches/Pain/hair restoration
TLC for your skin. Celluma uses NASA technology that has been FDA approved to provide low energy LED light to promote healthy skin by increasing circulation, eliminating toxins, adding moisture retention, increasing new cell growth and stimulating collagen and elastin to promote healthy and youthful skin and reduce visible signs of aging and damaged skin. Celluma is delivered through a revolutionary flexible and shape-taking light-array panel providing healing light exactly where your skin needs it most. Celluma not only is a revolutionary anti-aging device but can be used to treat pain. Celluma’s innovative technology is FDA cleared to treat wrinkles, inflammatory acne vulgaris, diminished local blood circulation, muscle & joint stiffness, muscle tissue tension, muscle & joint pain, muscle spasm and arthritis.
So how does this amazing technology work?
The proprietary Celluma light array panel gently rests on the skin in order to deliver Red, Blue, and/or Infrared LED light precisely into the skin, stimulating cellular activity to reduce and control acne outbreaks (both inflammatory and non-inflammatory), reduce the visible symptoms of hyperpigmentation and sun damage, and rebuild your skin’s healthy glow from the inside out. The light gently stimulates the production of collagen and elastin for stronger, healthier skin, increases circulation and lymphatic activity, and promotes cellular turnover and growth. Blue light, in particular, works by targeting the harmful bacteria at the root of many acne breakouts. The result is smooth and healthy looking skin.
How Light Energy Works
Specific wavelengths of light energy, when properly absorbed, up-regulates compromised cells. The light (photons) energy is absorbed by photoacceptors in the mitochondria and used to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The ATP produced then stimulates various metabolic processes which can result in the repair and regeneration of cell and tissue components. In an article, “Therapeutic Light” - by Chukuku S. Enwemeka, PT, PhD, FACSM, he wrote “other reported mechanisms of light-induced beneficial effects include modulation of prostaglandin levels, alteration of somatosensory evoked potential and nerve conduction velocity, and hyperemia of treated tissues. The resultant clinical benefits include pain relief in conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis, tendonitis, ankle sprain, and temporomandibular joint dysfunction, shoulder and neck pain, arthritis, and post-herpetic neuralgia, as well as tissue repair in cases of diabetic ulcer, venous ulcer, mouth ulcer, fractures, tendon rupture, ligamentous, tear, torn cartilage, and nerve injury.”
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 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 Celluma prior to surgery will decrease the presence of this bacteria.
