So what is light emitting diode (LED) therapy? Light therapy, also known as phototherapy or low-level light therapy, is the application of specific wavelengths of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits for a variety of conditions including skin, pain and hair restoration.
How LED Light Therapy Works
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 light emitting diode (LED) or phototherapy can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve acne prone skin, skin tone, texture and clarity, decrease under eye wrinkles as well as ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and pain associated with arthritis.
Research indicates that cells absorb particles of light (photons) and transform their energy into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the form of energy that cells utilize. The resulting elevation of ATP is then used to power metabolic processes; synthesize DNA, RNA, proteins, enzymes, and other products needed to repair or regenerate cell components; foster mitosis or cell proliferation; and restore homeostasis. Simply put, the LED phototherapy 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 in our skin and increase the rate of wound healing.
Celluma light therapy
mimics a natural photobiochemical reaction process to deliver safe, UV-free low-level light energy through FDA cleared, high-intensity LED devices. Celluma machines are FDA-cleared to treat a variety of skin and pain conditions to regain and maintain your body and skin’s natural vitality without the concern of dangerous side effects often associated with modern pharmaceuticals. Designed to address a multitude of skin and musculoskeletal conditions.
Originally developed by NASA for astronauts who could become injured or ill on long-term space missions, low-level-light therapy is used today as a safe and natural method of treating a variety of skin and pain conditions such as acne, wrinkles, aging skin and pain.
