Celluma LED Light Therapy
Light it up
How it Works
In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue, high intensity light emitting diodes (LEDs) utilizing specific, proven wavelengths of light can trigger a natural biostimulatory effect in human tissue. Research has shown that phototherapy can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, reduce sebum production, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone, texture and clarity, as well as ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and arthritis.
Simply put, the LED light source provides compromised cells with added energy so the cells performance is enhanced. For example, fibroblast cells will increase collagen and elastic production in connective tissue
Why blue light?
Blue light is a spectrum of light (wavelength of 415 nanometers to be exact) that's clinically proven to be effective in eradicating acne at the source and healing skin from within. How? Blue light has been shown to penetrate the skin's hair follicles and pores which harbor bacteria and can cause inflammation, and therefore acne. Bacteria are very sensitive to the blue light spectrum-it shuts down their metabolism and kills them. Unlike topical treatments that work to decrease inflammation and bacteria on the surface of the skin, light treatment eliminates the acne-causing bacteria (otherwise known as P.acnes) within the skin before in can feed off the oil glands and cause that redness and inflammation.
What about Red Light?
RLT works its magic by delivering safe, concentrated wavelengths of natural light into your skin ( up to 10 millimeters deep, to be exact ) where it’s absorbed by your cells. This stimulates the production of collagen, elastin, and fibroblasts, that in turn enhances a little something known as ATP, the source of energy for every cell in the body.
Red light therapy also boosts circulation, bringing more oxygen and nutrients to your cells and tissues.
Translation? When your cells are hit with the red light wavelengths, a host of regenerative effects occur, leading to potential benefits like younger-looking skin, enhanced muscle repair, and diminished scarring.
It's not just any red light that delivers this performance-optimizing boost, however; two wavelengths of red light in particular—660 nanometers and 850 nanometers—deliver the best biological response, explains Michael Hamblin, M.D., an associate professor at Harvard Medical School. The former, 660 nanometers, is more quickly absorbed by the skin, making it the go-to for cosmetic treatments, while 850 nanometer wavelengths penetrate deeper into your body to help with muscle recovery, joint pain, and full body health.
Beware of Cheap Imitators
We chose the Celluma LED light mask over others because of it's FDA clearance. Now why is FDA-Cleared important to You? The FDA regulates any “medical claims” made by device manufacturers. Accordingly, before any medical claims can be legally made by a device manufacturer, those claims must be reviewed by the FDA for both efficacy and safety.
Having a medical device “cleared” by the FDA is a rigorous, time-consuming and expensive process. Medical device manufacturers that pursue FDA-clearance are demonstrating to the public their commitment to providing safe and effective products. Essentially, they are putting their money where their mouth is. As such, medical devices that are granted FDA-clearance are made by companies who have the public interest in mind and don’t try to circumvent federal regulations in taking their products to market.
By choosing FDA-cleared medical devices we assure you that appropriate regulation and authoritative oversight has been conducted. FDA-clearance means that the device we are using has been confirmed efficacious and safe when used as directed. In order for a medical device to receive FDA-clearance, each component of the device must pass inspection - including each of its sources, suppliers, and manufacturers. Without FDA regulation, neither the device itself nor its suppliers are held accountable to quality controls or manufacturing standards, resulting in a product that may be considerably less effective and oftentimes significantly less safe than FDA-cleared devices.
Our Celluma device is FDA-cleared to treat the following conditions:
Inflammatory Acne Vulgaris
Diminished Local Blood Circulation (Redness)
Muscle & Joint Stiffness
Muscle Tissue Tension
Muscle & Joint Pain
Celluma is also CE Marked in the European Union as a Class IIa Medical Device for Dermal Wound Healing and is the only device of its kind to achieve such status.
