LED Light Therapy

Celluma LED by Biophotas

 

Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy is the application of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. The energy 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 increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria (P.Acne), decrease inflammation, improve skin tone, texture and clarity, reduce muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasms and arthritis.

 

What is Celluma?

Celluma is unique and quite unlike any other low-level light therapy device available today. Based on NASA research, 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.

 

Acne

Celluma blue light therapy works safely and effectively without abrasive chemicals, harmful UV-rays or side effects.  The blue light works to destroy the P.acnes bacterial that lives inside the pore, not only clearing up existing blemishes but preventing future breakouts before they occur. This therapy works best in conjunction with acne products specific to treating  your type of acne.

 

Anti Aging

LED red light therapy helps to restore and repair compromised cells. The light absorbed creates a processed called adenosine triphosphate (ATP)-the fuel that drives all cells. The  The resulting boost in cellular energy leads to a cascade of metabolic events which can increase micro-circulation and result in less visible facial wrinkles,improvement in skin texture and firmness.

 

How Does Light Energy Work?

Specific wavelengths of light energy, when properly absorbed, up-regulates compromised cells. The light (photons) energy is absorbed by photoacceptors in the mitochondria and used to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The ATP produced then stimulates various metabolic processes which can result in the repair and regeneration of cell and tissue components. In an article, “Therapeutic Light” –  by Chukuku S. Enwemeka, PT, PhD, FACSM, he wrote “other reported mechanisms of light-induced beneficial effects include modulation of prostaglandin levels, alteration of somatosensory evoked potential and nerve conduction velocity, and hyperemia of treated tissues. The resultant clinical benefits include pain relief in conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis, tendonitis, ankle sprain, and temporomandibular joint dysfunction, shoulder and neck pain, arthritis, and post-herpetic neuralgia, as well as tissue repair in cases of diabetic ulcer, venous ulcer, mouth ulcer,  fractures, tendon rupture, ligamentous, tear, torn cartilage, and nerve injury.”
