What is LED light therapy?

Light therapy is the application of specific wavelengths of light energy to tissues to achieve therapeutic benefits.

The emitted energy is then used to improve cell performance. Light therapy can be performed with light emitting diodes (LEDs) or cold lasers and has a variety of applications in many medical fields.

It has been extensively studied and is supported by thousands of peer-reviewed and published clinical research articles from reputable institutions around the world. Other terms by which light therapy is known are photobiostimulation, photobiomodulation, photomedicine, LED light therapy, low level light therapy (LLLT), red light therapy, cold and soft LASER therapy. All terms are correct, have the same meaning, and are used to describe the delivery of light energy to treat a variety of medical and cosmetic conditions.

The treatment is non-invasive, painless, requires no recovery time and can be used safely on all skin types.

About the Celluma SERIES

FDA approved for pain management and skin care, Celluma's LED light therapy devices use specific wavelengths of light energy to improve cell health by accelerating the repair and regeneration of damaged tissue cells. Although similar devices on the market claim to do the same, they often require multiple panels and accessories to treat specific conditions or to accommodate different parts of the body. From compact handheld devices to large whole-body light therapy devices, the Celluma SERIES offers practical solutions in a variety of versatile, affordable all-in-one systems.

How it works

Just as plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into energy, high-intensity light-emitting diodes (LEDs), which use specific, proven wavelengths of light, can induce a natural biostimulating effect in human tissue. Research has shown that LED light therapy can increase blood flow, speed tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, reduce inflammation, improve skin complexion, texture and clarity, reduce wrinkles under the eyes, and relieve muscle and joint pain, stiffness, cramping and associated arthritis pain.

Research shows that cells absorb light particles (photons) and convert their energy into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the form of energy used by cells. The resulting increase in ATP is then used to accelerate metabolic processes, synthesize DNA, RNA, proteins, enzymes, and other products needed to repair or regenerate cellular components, promote mitosis or cell proliferation, and restore homeostasis. Simply put, the LED light source provides additional energy to the damaged cells so that cell performance is improved. Fibroblast cells, for example, will increase collagen and elastin production in connective tissue to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and increase the rate of wound healing.

The versatility of Celluma

Patented pulse wave technology controlled by proprietary software algorithms contributes to the applicability of Celluma light therapy. With the exception of Celluma CLEAR (emits only blue and red) for acne treatment, all Celluma devices are polychromatic, emitting blue (465 nm), red (640 nm) and infrared (880 nm) light energy simultaneously to safely treat a wide range of conditions in both professional and home settings easily and cost-effectively. Each wavelength is absorbed by different molecules that act as a signaling mechanism for different cellular processes. For example, some reduce inflammation and kill bacteria, while others promote local blood flow.

Shedding light on the Celluma gap

There is a wide range of optical parameters required to elicit cellular responses for desired therapeutic outcomes. These specific and proven requirements for effective light therapy begin with selecting the correct wavelength: blue, red and near infrared. These are the wavelengths that are best supported by reliable scientific research for the effective application of low-level light therapy. Optimal energy delivery and treatment parameters are also critical components. The importance of device placement and proximity to tissue is an aspect of LED light therapy that is often misunderstood and rarely explained effectively. The key to effectiveness is to place the light emissions as close to the skin as possible to ensure optimal energy absorption. Based on Celluma's patented shape-shifting design, no other LED device can position better or easier than Celluma.

We know, based on the inverse square law of optical physics, that proximity to the treatment area is the key to efficiency. This law applies to all light therapy devices. To compensate for the distance factor, early LED devices were built on what are now considered obsolete platforms and had to resort to various strategies, including increasing the number of LEDs or increasing the output power. However, these tactics do not compensate for the distance they travel from the skin, but dramatically increase the cost of these bulky devices. The key to the effectiveness of light therapy is not how much energy is delivered by a device or how many LEDs are present, but how much energy is available for absorption by the tissue.

The inverse square law states that certain forces on an object vary by the inverse square of the distance between the object and the source of the force. Light energy obeys this law. For example, an object placed three inches from a light source receives only one-ninth as much energy as an object one inch from the light. Simply put and following the principles of the inverse square law, we understand that the closer the light energy is emitted to the skin, the more energy is absorbed and the faster and better results you will see. What exactly does this mean for you and how do you use this information to optimize your results?

Today's advances in LED technology allow Celluma to produce devices that use the Law of Inverse Squares. Celluma's devices are flexible and dimensionally stable so they can be precisely adapted to the treatment area. In use, this means faster, better and longer lasting results for you, your clients and patients. Essentially Celluma or any other light therapy device further away from the skin does not become ineffective, only less effective.

In addition, Celluma's contoured design allows for easy treatment of areas previously considered "awkward," such as elbows, shoulders or ankles. The modality is hands-free and free-standing and requires no supervision during the treatment session.

See how Celluma compares to other light therapy devices. The difference is uniquely clear. Celluma is:

  • Safe, clinically proven, FDA certified and medically CE marked
  • Non-toxic, non-invasive
  • An affordable alternative to drugs and harsh topical solutions
  • Matches exactly to the area being treated for optimum efficiency unlike other LED devices
  • Patented fit design. Although some LED fixtures claim to be flexible, unlike Celluma, none can hold their shape in place without a stand or fixture.
  • Treats large surfaces and can be safely applied anywhere on the body
  • Portable and lightweight - ideal for travel and easy storage
  • Considers the principles of the inverse square law
  • Embedded technology researched by NASA
  • Safe for the whole family, including pets*.
  • *Not approved for use in children under 12 years of age.

Celluma is designed to treat a wide range of skin and musculoskeletal conditions and is available in user-friendly 1, 2 and 3-mode devices and a variety of sizes.

Originally developed by NASA for astronauts who may become injured or ill during long-term missions in space, low-level light therapy is now being used as a safe and natural way to treat a variety of skin conditions and pain such as acne, wrinkles, aging skin and pain.

Why is FDA approval important to you?

The FDA regulates all "medical claims" made by device manufacturers. Accordingly, before a device manufacturer can legally make medical claims, those claims must be reviewed by the FDA for both effectiveness and safety. The FDA does not test the devices themselves, but thoroughly analyzes the data provided by the manufacturers or "sponsors" to ensure that the device claims are deemed substantiated and that users of the devices can expect the claims to work effectively and safely.

Getting "approval" from the FDA for a medical light therapy device is a rigorous, time-consuming and expensive process. Medical device manufacturers seeking FDA approval demonstrate to the public their commitment to providing safe and effective products.Medical devices that receive FDA approval are manufactured by companies that have the public interest in mind and do not attempt to circumvent federal regulations by bringing their products to market.

When you choose FDA-approved medical devices, you can be assured that proper regulation and regulatory oversight has taken place. FDA approval means that the effectiveness and safety of the device you have purchased has been confirmed when used as intended. For a medical device to receive FDA approval, every component of the device must pass inspection - including all sources, suppliers and manufacturers. Without FDA regulation, neither the device itself nor its suppliers are responsible for quality control or manufacturing standards, resulting in a product that can be significantly less effective and often significantly less safe than FDA-approved devices.

Celluma also has CE marking in the European Union as a Class IIa medical device for skin wound healing and is the only device of its kind to achieve this status.
