Lighting The Way To Healthier Skin

What is Light Therapy?

Phototherapy, or the use of various types of light sources to treat medical conditions, has been used for years with proven results.  In the aesthetic industry, the primary form of Phototherapy used is Light Emitted Diode (LED) therapy. Originally developed for wound healing, LED Light Therapy has also been shown to:

  • Increase circulation
  • Accelerate tissue repair
  • Destroy p.acne bacteria
  • Decrease inflammation
  • Improve skin tone, texture, and clarity
  • Ease muscle & joint pain

However, these results can only be achieved if the LEDs have the correct wavelengths and the ability to reach the minimum energy requirement to induce change. Research has shown that in-home devices and some professional devices on the market do not meet the wavelength and energy requirements to produce results. So how do you know if you’re getting an effective treatment? At Embody MedSpa, we do our research and only purchase equipment that has been through rigorous clinical studies with data to prove the efficacy and safety of the treatment. And this is the reason we chose the CellumaPRO LED System with blue, red, and infrared wavelengths.

CellumaPRO is an FDA-cleared light therapy device that is clinically proven to fight fine lines and wrinkles, as well as clear acne and inflammation, by enhancing health at the cellular level and accelerating the repair and replenishment of tissue cells. Using wavelengths that are scientifically proven to improve cellular performance, Celluma’s UV-free low-level light energy is a safe, effective, and convenient way to achieve healthy, youthful skin.

How It Works

LEDs trigger a natural biostimulatory effect in human tissue in the same way that plants use sunlight for photosynthesis. The cells absorb light (photons) and convert it to cellular energy (ATP). The increase in ATP powers the cell metabolism to repair and regenerate cell components. This leads to enhanced cell function to:

  • Increase collagen & elastin production
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
  • Improve firmness & elasticity
  • Clear existing breakouts
  • Restore skin health
  • Decrease inflammation

Celluma LED Light Therapy is easy, painless, and unbelievably relaxing. During the treatment, your skin care professional will wash your face and place protective eyewear on you. The light panel is flexible and can be tented over the face or molded to treat any area of concern. Once the panel is in place, you just enjoy the tranquility of the LEDs for 10-30 minutes.

The treatment can be done by itself or as an add-on to any other service, including facials, hydrafacials, microneedling, microdermabrasion, and injectables. We recommend you consult with your skin care professional to determine the best treatment plan for your concerns and needs.
