Light Emitting Diode (LED) photo therapy is the application of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. The energy is used to improve cellular performance. Photo therapy is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties and has a variety of applications across many medical fields. Research has shown that photo therapy can: increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone, texture and clarity, ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm and arthritis
Photo therapy profoundly affects tissue at the cellular level. One benefit is that it can increase vascularity (circulation) by increasing the formation of new capillaries. These are additional blood vessels that replace damaged ones. New capillaries speed up the healing process by bringing increased amounts of oxygen, as well as, more nutrients to the area for healing. In addition, the new vascularization can also carry more waste products away to further benefit the healing process. Well designed LED devices, like the Celluma, can effectively deliver red light energy deep into the dermal layer where it can stimulate a variety of different cell types. As a result, it can boost circulation bringing more blood and nutrients to the area being treated. It also stimulates vital collagen and elastin production. Collagen helps plump the skin, while elastin firms the skin for a more youthful appearance.
Based on NASA research, the medical device, 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. Using various wavelengths simultaneously isn't the only thing that makes the Celluma panel unique- because of it's structure and pliability, the panel is able to get closer to the skin than any other device on the market which means faster, impeccable results!
Blue Light wavelenth penetrates 465 nm into the skin, killing acne causing bacteria.
Red Light wavelength penetrates 640 nm into the skin, stimulating healing, repair and rejuvenation. Your skin will be more evenly toned, radiant and soft. This is a great add on after microdermabrasion, peels, extractions and laser treatments.
Infrared Light wavelength which is invisible to the naked eye, penetrates the deepest at 880 nm, Infrared light stimulates the activity
of fibroblasts, which are responsible for making the proteins collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are responsible for supporting
the skin, giving it its elasticity. Replenishing the collagen and elastin helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles. These wavelengths also heal and repair joint and muscle pain, arhritis, muscle tissue tension, muscle spasms, local circulation, etc.
