Celluma light therapy, the instrument we use for our light therapy delivers light energy uniformly to the skin which is crucial to successful energy absorption by the cells..
What is Light Therapy?
Light Therapy is the delivery of light energy to the skin and other parts of the body to boost the body's natural healing process and obtain other therapeutic benefits.
More formally named "Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy" or Light Therapy 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: enhance cellular metabolism. increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, decrease wrinkles, decrease inflammation, increase lymphatic system activity, improve skin tone and wrinkles, texture and clarity, ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm and arthritis and kill acne bacteria, stimulate the production of collagen — the foundation of healthy, smooth skin and much more.
For Skin Care:
We think of aging as a breakdown of the metabolic processes. Treatments with light therapy address the aging process by slowing the degradation of cellular integrity by generating collagen and elastin with red and near-infrared wavelengths that boost the production of fibroblast cells in the skin and the body.
For Joints and Inflammation:
Light therapy reduces inflammation by boosting fibroblast production in the skin. We look forward to the FDA approval of light therapy for wound healing.
Inflamed joints may experience improvement with one to three sessions. Keep in mind that results vary depending on the severity of the condition and adherence to continuity of care.
Light therapy is a safe and effective way to address inflammation and pain without using substances or drugs or going in for surgery. This non invasive procedure is also available with very low contact with our therapists on site, where you can be left to rest while receiving treatment.
- Who can receive -
Light Therapy should not be given to children under 12, or over the breast or stomach of a breast-feeding or pregnant person.
- Does the therapy use -
No, our device, Celluma, utilizes a combination of blue, red, and near-infrared (not visible to the naked eye) light emitting diodes (LEDs) only.
- How close is-
Light Therapy to my Skin?
The Light Therapy device, which is called Celluma, rests very close to the skin. The Light Therapy is wrapped around your body for the most direct contact.
- Is Light Therapy -
Yes, from the Celluma website: "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 should I -
Prepare my Skin?
Clean, freshly washed skin is recommended as minerals in makeup and sunscreens amy deflect the light.
- What does-
Light Therapy feel like?
Light Therapy should not be painful. It feels like a warm device close to the skin and should be relaxing.
Based on extensive research, low-level-light therapy devices have been cleared by the FDA, and shown to manage:
Mild to moderate acne vulgaris
Superficial, benign vascular and pigment lesions
Periorbital wrinkles and rhytides
Sub-optimal local blood flow and circulation
Minor muscle and joint aches
Minor muscle and joint pain
Pain and stiffness associated with arthritis
Minor arthritis or muscle spasms
Minor chronic neck and shoulder pain of a musculoskeletal origin
