CELLUMA LIGHT THERAPY
FDA-Cleared and medically CE Marked for pain management and skin care. Celluma LED light therapy devices use specific wavelengths of light energy to improve cellular health by accelerating the repair and replenishment of compromised tissue cells. It can improve your health and make you look and feel years younger!
What is light therapy?
Light therapy is the application of specific wavelengths of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. The energy delivered is then used to improve cellular performance. Light therapy can be delivered through light emitting diode (LEDs) devices or cold lasers, and has a variety of applications across many medical fields. The treatment is non-invasive, painless, requires no recovery time, and can be used safely on all skin types.
How does it work?
In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into energy, 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 LED light therapy can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone, texture and clarity, decrease under eye wrinkles as well as ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and pain associated with 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 elastin production in connective tissue to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and increase the rate of wound healing.
LED light therapy works by killing acne-causing bacteria at the source, deep beneath the skin’s surface. Blue LED light therapy emits specific, clinically-proven wavelengths of light to trigger an all-natural effect in human tissue, killing acne-causing bacteria, decreasing inflammation, and improving skin tone, texture, and clarity from the inside out. Blue and red LED light-therapy is widely used as an effective option for the treatment of inflammatory acne. Blue light and red light act synergistically in improving acne by combining antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action.
Red and near-infrared wavelengths are utilized in the Celluma SERIES of LED light therapy devices to combat the signs of aging. These specific wavelengths of light energy are clinically verified to enhance your body's natural ability to generate collagen and elastin by activating the fibroblast cells.
Fibroblast cells are responsible for producing collagen and elastin, the two most common proteins in connective tissue. However, as we age, our fibroblasts become compromised resulting in lower levels of these proteins. We might start noticing decreased elasticity in our skin, wrinkles, and our joints may not move as freely as they used to. This is because lower levels of collagen lead to breakdowns in cartilage which can cause inflammation, soreness, stiffness, arthritis, and prolonged recovery time after physical activity.
LED Light Therapy boosts collagen production:
Let’s quickly run through two biology basics: the Krebs Cycle and Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP).
The Krebs cycle is what generates cellular energy inside your body. Light activation boosts the body’s natural Krebs Cycle which in turn assists in creating more ATP.
ATP is the energy currency of all the cells in your body. When your body has sufficient ATP levels, then it has more energy to spend on restorative processes such as collagen elastin production – these are the proteins your body uses to heal itself.
In summary: Light Therapy = Enhanced Krebs (energy) Cycle = Greater ATP Availability = More Collagen
When all of those important metabolic events are happening, it then results in greater outcomes beyond just collagen production. We see a cascade of benefits such as:
Cell generation to replace old cells (mitosis)
Reduction and prevention of cell death (apoptosis)
Neurogenesis (new neurons)
Development of new capillaries (angiogenesis)
Increased blood flow
Enhanced Nitric Oxide production
Celluma is clinically proven to speed the rate of wound closure equaling or outperforming cold LASERs of similar optical parameters.
The Celluma is medically CE- Marked in Europe for all FDA indications-for-use as well as for DerIal Wound Healing as a Class 11A medical device in the European Union. Ideal for use following surgery to enhance healing of incisions or non-healing wounds, Celluma LED therapy can help reduce patient down-time and fight infection while increasing overall patient satisfaction.
Light therapy has been shown to accelerate tissue repair, decrease wound size and accelerate wound closure as well as other beneficial effects. These mechanisms have been demonstrated to promote dermal wound healing as well as reduce the pain associated with the healing process. The Celluma is intended to be used for dermal wound healing referring to the treatment of surface wounds existing at the outer 2mm of the skin and including normal, acute post-surgical and chronic wound healing including but not limited to diabetic ulcers.
The seminal research for Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT), also known as LED therapy, was conducted by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center out of concern for astronauts who might be injured or become ill during long term space flight. In response to this health risk, NASA developed LED (light emitting diode) technology that showed great promise for delivering light energy deep into the body to promote wound healing and human tissue growth.
