What is Celluma Light Therapy?
In the past, staying healthy and looking and feeling young may have required relying on harsh chemicals and invasive treatments, but no longer. Thanks to the advent of light therapy, and Celluma in particular, anyone of any age and with any skin type can manage pain, relieve acne, tone and clarify skin and heal wounds without taking any medications or going under any doctor’s knife.
In order to fully convey the true power and versatility of Celluma’s light therapy solution, let’s first explore what light therapy is itself, and then go into why Celluma offers the best light therapy option available.
What is Light Therapy?
Light therapy, or phototherapy, is the application of certain wavelengths of light for therapeutic purposes. It uses a specially-designed device that transmits low-level LED light to speed up the repair and replacement of body tissue cells that have been compromised.
Light therapy is painless, non-invasive, non-toxic, requires zero recovery time, and best of all, you can benefit from it no matter your skin type. It’s safe to use anywhere on the body with no harmful side effects. The FDA has even cleared it for numerous uses, including skincare and managing pain.
What is Celluma?
Celluma light therapy utilizes a proprietary light therapy device like no other. Celluma devices come in several different designs and sizes, all of which you can use on any part of the body with equal effectiveness.
- Red LED – Anti-aging, hyper/hypo-pigmentaion
- Blue LED – Anti-acneic
- Infrared LED – Pain & Inflamation
How Does Celluma Work?
As a young person, almost everyone learns that plants use chlorophyll to turn sunlight into energy. Then, they utilize this energy to produce plant tissue. In this same manner, high-intensity LEDs (light-emitting diodes) emit particular light wavelengths that can stimulate certain natural processes in human tissue.
According to research, cells absorb photons, or light particles, and convert their energy into another form of energy known as ATP (adenosine triphosphate.) This is precisely the form of energy cells use to perform their various metabolic functions, like synthesizing RNA, DNA, enzymes, proteins and other components required for cellular regeneration and repair. ATP also promotes cell proliferation and mitosis and restores general physiological homeostasis or balance.
In the simplest of terms: phototherapy feeds troubled cells extra energy to become untroubled and enhance their performance.
Does Celluma Phototherapy Work?
Now that you know how light therapy functions, you may be wondering about results. As you proceed to read the many benefits of Celluma below, keep in mind that clinical research has provided ample evidence to support each of these effects.
What Are the Benefits of Celluma?
Unlike with other light therapy devices, you don’t have to use a different Celluma unit for different purposes or on different parts of the body. Rather, the Celluma device is an all-in-one unit that you can use anywhere on your body for any of the benefits light therapy provides.
That said, among the most common and prevalent healing purposes for which people use Celluma light therapy include:
- Anti-ageing – Light therapy improves the clarity, texture and tone, as well as firmness, resilience and elasticity of your skin. It also reduces wrinkles and fine lines and increases elasticity and collagen production.
- Acne treatment – As an acne treatment, light therapy gets right to the heart of the matter, killing acne bacteria to clear up breakouts, prevent new ones and restore the healthy appearance of your skin.
- Managing pain – Light therapy increases circulation and decreases inflammation, which can help alleviate joint and muscle pain, spasms and stiffness, as well as symptoms of arthritis.
- Healing wounds – Through many of the same methods by which it helps manage pain, eliminate acne and keep you looking and feeling young, light therapy also accelerates tissue repair from injuries.
