Celluma™ Red Light Therapy

Red Light Therapy (also known as LED/Light Emitting Diode therapy or Phototherapy) is the application of light energy to improve tissue growth and cellular performance.

Celluma™ light therapy delivers blue, red, and near-infrared light energy simultaneously to safely treat a wide variety of conditions that range from acne to hair loss, muscle pain, and wound healing.

Pricing and Packages:

1 session - $50

5 pack - $150

As an add-on: $30

How does LED Red Light Therapy Work?

We're taking you way back to science class with this one. See how blue, red and infrared light waves penetrate human tissue? Blue light only reaches the epidermis, red light travels slightly further into the dermis, and infrared light is shown to penetrate deep into the subcutaneous layer.

In the early 1990s, LED therapy was being used by NASA scientists to grow plants in space. In their process to recreate photosynthesis for plants, they realized a similar process could be applied to human cells and tissues!

Photons (aka light energy) are absorbed by photo acceptors in the mitochondria, the part of the cell where all its energy is created. This leads to the creation of more adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the molecule that provides energy for living cells to perform metabolic processes like repair and regeneration of cell and tissue components. 

Essentially, our bodies photosynthesize like plants, taking in light energy to create new cells and repair tissues. Today LED/ Red Light Therapy is used by medical practitioners, dermatologists, estheticians, and physical therapists for medicinal and cosmetic purposes.

How to Choose Your Celluma™ Program

Here's the fun part! There are three programs to choose from and the diagram above makes it easy.

Blue Light Program: Acne Treatment

  • Treat existing blemishes
  • Minimize breakouts
  • Kill acne-causing bacteria

Blue light treats the epidermis. It increases micro-circulation, bringing more oxygen and nutrients to the skin. This means it’s perfect for acute skin conditions like acne, redness, irritation, excess oil, enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation. 

Red Light Program: Anti-Aging

  • Reduce wrinkles & hyperpigmentation
  • Heal scarring
  • Promote elasticity and collagen production

Red light travels further into the dermis. This mode is best for chronic conditions like wrinkles, and collagen production, and reduces inflammation. Although it is called Red Light, this program is the only one with equal levels of both blue light and red light, giving it it's purple hue.

Near-Infrared Light Program: Healing

  • Wound Healing
  • Post-Operation Healing
  • Chronic Pain Management
  • Hair Restoration

Near-Infrared light penetrates the muscle, making it ideal for all pain, joint, and muscle issues. Any condition located deeper in the tissue is targeted. 

Many of our post-operational patients use Red Light Therapy to induce faster healing and wound-closure. Cosmetic procedures like lipo, tummy tuck, and BBL involve surgically injecting and/or removing fat. Surgical instruments like a cannula can leave space between the skin and muscle leaving the inside of your skin is tender, almost like road rash.

Red Light Therapy has been proven to reduce inflammation, bacterial infections, and the pain associated with post-op healing. Patients notice that after just a couple sessions, their operated areas are less swollen and sensitive.

How long is the treatment and what is it like?

One treatment is 30 minutes. Patients notice a result after 1-2 uses.
