What is Low Level Light Therapy and Celluma Lamp?

Early NASA research proved that specific wavelengths of light could enhance human tissue at the cellular level, resulting in a wide variety of therapeutic benefits. In more recent years, light therapy has become a mainstream method of treatment for acne, ageing, and pain.

In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue, human cells can absorb specific wavelengths of light and transform their energy into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the form of energy that cells use to power metabolic processes.

Simply put, light therapy improves cellular health by accelerating the repair and replenishment of compromised tissue cells. Celluma Light therapy can: increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone, and also ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and arthritis. Its is great for pain manangement but also skin conditions and anti-ageing.  

How can Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture be used in conjunction with Low Level Light Therapy? 

Acupuncture and light therapy are both non-invasive, natural treatments that can naturally improve the body’s own healing abilities, helping us look and feel our best.

When Acupuncture is used in conjunction with light therapy, patients will first experience those micro-traumas that bring a rush of blood, oxygen, and nutrients to the skin’s surface. Then, with the application of light energy, cells are stimulated on the microscopic level, increasing the production of collagen and elastin, and increasing cell turnover.

Acupuncture creates inflammation – it’s all part of the healing process. But when used in conjunction with light therapy, light therapy works to reduce that inflammation and provide additional cellular energy, so patients look and feel better more quickly after treatment.

Treating patients with Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture and Light Therapy

 

Light therapy  enhances the benefits of Traditional Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture - that's a scitific fact!

Pairing Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture with Celluma light therapy enhances patient outcomes for acne, ageing, pain, and general health and wellness.

When used in conjunction with Acupuncture,  light therapy can:

  • Stimulate skin cell micro-circulation

  • Improve lymphatic drainage

  • Soften wrinkles and fine lines

  • Increase collagen and elastin production

  • Delay the signs of aging

  • Relax and rejuvenate clients

  • Produce efficient, effective results with no downtime

 

Why do I like to use Celluma Pro Light Therapy during the treatment?

I have chosen to use Celluma Pro for my practice because Celluma lamps are the only all-in-one, FDA-cleared light therapy devices on the market and have been proven to promote cell proliferation and cell migration using blue, red and near-infrared wavelengths synergistically.

Additionally Celluma Pro received  European Union CE-Marking for Dermal Wound Healing. 

Celluma devices also offer different treatment modes, so they can be used for acne, anti-aging, and pain management.

What’s more, Celluma’s unique ability to conform closely to the treatment area allows for maximum absorption of light, so you’ll see more effective, faster results with Celluma when compared to other light therapy devices.

 

According to the Inverse Square Law of Optical Physics, as you double the distance between skin and light energy, the energy available for absorption decreases by 4 times.

That means if you position Celluma .5 inch away from skin and another device is 1 inch away, that second device would need to be 4x as powerful to have the same effect.

 

 

Pain management with CELLUMA Pro

 

While light therapy is an excellent tool to combat outward aesthetic concerns such as ageing and acne, the whole-body benefits that near-infrared light therapy provides go way beyond skin deep. Many don’t realise just how effective light therapy can be for pain management.

Chronic pain, contributes to skyrocketing healthcare bills, lost productivity, and poor quality of life across the nation. What’s more, chronic pain has been linked to opioid dependency, anxiety, and depression. Not only is pain physically debilitating, but it can also affect mental health on a daily basis.

 

 

How to treat pain with Light Therapy?

In the same way that plants grow by getting their energy from the sun during photosynthesis, Infrared light therapy -- or “low-level light” therapy -- uses specific, proven wavelengths to stimulate a natural response in human tissue that can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, ease muscle pain, relieve joint stiffness, and enhance overall cell performance on a microscopic level.

 

Infrared light therapy works by boosting cellular energy to encourage and enhance the body’s natural healing abilities.

When tissue is damaged, pain occurs. Human tissue can be compromised in a variety of ways; a sprained ankle, a surgical procedure that didn’t heal properly, or even an overly intense gym session can all cause bodily discomfort and emotional distress. Pain can be short-term or long-term, and because it presents itself differently in every person, it can be extremely difficult to treat. 

Celluma’s unique ability to bend, flex, and contour close to the skin’s surface allows cells to absorb even more light energy to achieve maximum restorative potential. Celluma’s unique and superior device design offers pain-relieving therapeutic benefits equal to or better than more powerful and expensive devices, making all-natural pain management a very real possibility for all people who suffer from pain.

 

From chronic pain management to improved exercise tolerance, light therapy has been clinically proven to provide therapeutic benefits across an array of medical applications, penetrating deep beyond the skin’s surface to enhance health at the cellular level.

Celluma LED light therapy is a modern approach to chronic pain management.

 

Free from harmful chemicals and the risk of dependency, light therapy is a more natural method of healing your body from the inside out. Rather than simply masking pain, Celluma light therapy works differently to treat the underlying condition, enhancing tissue repair and performance, and allowing your body to perform at an optimal level of health and wellness.

With Celluma’s light therapy technology and unique body contouring device design, you can regain and maintain your body’s natural vitality without the need for prescription drugs and their dangerous side effects, leading to long-lasting, life-improving pain management you can rely on.

Medically prescribed pain killing drugs work by blocking pain receptors in the brain, alleviating the symptom but not fixing the cause. Even worse, opioids can be extremely addictive and the risk of addiction significantly increases when they are used on a regular basis to manage long-term chronic pain. 

 

Light therapy for pain management is a non-invasive and side effect free alternative to the use of opioids. 

How Can Infrared Light Therapy Help with Pain Management?

Poor circulation and the lack of oxygen and other essential molecules (i.e., glucose, Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP)) in blood vessels can cause pain or a lack of sensation. Light energy stimulates the release of nitric oxide, causing blood vessels to increase in diameter (vasodilation) and allowing more blood flow, oxygen, and other important factors to be delivered. This increase in oxygen and nutrients, along with stimulation of the light energy emitted from Celluma LED devices increases ATP production, which activates pain relieving pathways. This decreases pain and inflammation, and increases tissue regeneration in the localized area.

When it comes to effective treatment of pain conditions with LED light therapy, wavelength is key.

 

Compared to blue light therapy, near-infrared wavelengths can penetrate deep into the muscle and joint tissue to alleviate pain, increase circulation and decrease inflammation. Infrared light therapy provides compromised cells with extra energy to accelerate the natural repair of compromised tissue cells, foster cell production, and restore homeostasis within the body.

Originally developed by NASA engineers for pain management and injury treatment on long-term space missions, light therapy is used today as a safe and natural method of treating a variety of pain and skin conditions. But you don’t need to be an astronaut to reap the benefits of Infrared light therapy for pain, and you don’t need to travel to space.  With the development of Infrared light therapy device design, people can take advantage of  light therapy at my clinic. However, not all light therapy is created equal.

 

Why is Celluma Light Therapy for pain Management different?

Celluma’s approach to pain management is inspired by light, proven by science, and cleared by the FDA and EU.

Celluma’s versatile, all-in-one Blue, Red, and Infrared light therapy systems are effective on different parts of the body, and treats an array of pain-causing conditions.

Unlike other LED light therapy devices on the market, Celluma has the unique ability to contour close to the skin’s surface for increased light absorption and optimal therapeutic efficacy.
