What is celluma?

Celluma is unique and quite unlike any other low-level light therapy device available today. Based on NASA research, Celluma delivers blue, red, and near-infrared light energy simultaneously to safely treat a wide variety of conditions. Each wavelength is absorbed by different molecules that act as a signaling mechanism for different cellular processes. For example, some reduce inflammation and some kill bacteria, while others enhance localized circulation.

 

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, decrease wrinkles, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone and wrinkles, texture, and clarity, ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and arthritis and kill acne bacteria, and much more.

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.

How long does a celluma session last?

A session lasts 30 min and works best in series of treatments.

How Does LED light therapy work?

Specific wavelengths of light energy, when properly absorbed, up-regulates compromised cells. The light (photons) energy is absorbed by photoacceptors in the mitochondria and is 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, Ph.D., 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.”

Treatment contraindications for LED light therapy

  • Women who are pregnant should consult their physician before beginning LED light therapy treatments.

  • Clients with Epilepsy should consult their physician before beginning LED light therapy treatments.

  • You must wait five days after Botox or cosmetic fillers.

  • Some Thyroid Conditions.

 

How Does Celluma Work To Decrease Pain?

The LED energy in Celluma has been proven to relieve arthritic pain, and muscle and joint pain, and stiffness. The wavelengths delivered by this LED energy are absorbed by photoreceptors in the mitochondria in the cells. This process increases the production of adenosine triphosphate, which is the fuel that drives all cells. For pain, Celluma:

  • Helps repair tissue

  • Decreases inflammation and pain

  • Reduces stiffness

  • Reduces muscle spasms

How Celluma helps with acne!

  • For acne, Celluma follows the treatment path of IPL energy by going after the bacteria that is behind the inflammation in the sebaceous glands that causes an acne breakout. Celluma:

  • Destroys P.acnes bacteria in the sebaceous glands

  • Improves existing blemishes

  • Prevents future breakouts

  • Clears existing breakouts

  • Restores the skin’s healthy radiance

  • Improves skin texture

How Does Celluma Work For Anti-Aging?

  • The light wavelengths delivered by Celluma are proven to stimulate fibroblasts in the skin to increase the production of collagen and elastin. For anti-aging, Celluma:

  • Increases collagen and elastin

  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

  • Improves the skin’s firmness and resilience

How long does celluma take to work?

 For Acne 30 minutes twice a week for 4 weeks, and for ANTI-AGING  30 minutes three times a  week for 4 weeks for best results expect to use your Celluma LED device at least two to three times a week, and even more if you wish. Use Celluma for up to 30 minutes per area for faster, better, and longer-lasting results. However, if you are on any medications or have any conditions that prohibits the use of light therapy then be sure to check with your primary physician prior to use. 

Can you add on celluma to a skin service?

 Celluma is non-invasive so it may be added to your favorite skincare or waxing services as often as you'd like.

Cautions with medications because of light sensitivity

  • Chlorpromazine (Anti-psychotic), also known as Thorazine, Chlorpromazine HCL, Sonazine. You can be treated if the medication has not been taken within the last eight days.

  • Griseofulvin (Anti-Fungal), also known as Grifulvin V, Fulvicin P/G, Gris-Peg. You can be treated if the medication has not been taken within the last five days.
