Q – DR. ELIJAh, I’VE NOTICED LIGHT THERAPY IS A THING FOR SKIN CARE NOW. WHAT IS LED OR LIGHT THERAPY AND IS IT SAFE?

 

A –  We know therapy is good for your mental health, right?  

You get your feelings out, talk through the mess of life and feel lighter walking out of that office than you did walking in.

  

But, what about therapy for your skin?  

(Aside from the gab session you have with your esthetician, of course.)

 

What treatment can help you feel comfortable in your skin (like talk therapy does)?

That’s where LED light therapy comes in…

WHAT IS LED LIGHT THERAPY?

LED (light emitting diode) uses wavelengths of red, blue and in some cases near-infrared light that help repair and rejuvenate the skin.

 

Light therapy can be used to treat the skin for:

• Anti-aging

• Acne

• Pain management

• Wound healing

 

And is a perfect added boost to most skincare treatments like facials.

 


HOW DOES LED LIGHT THERAPY HELP YOUR SKIN?

We mentioned how light therapy can help with acne and anti-aging, but it goes deeper than that.

 

Because this light therapy penetrates the skin at various depths, it can help:

• Calm irritated skin

• Diminish acne bacteria (hello + goodbye, acne)

• Clear existing breakouts and inflammation

• Increases collagen and elastin production

• Reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles

• Improve firmness and resilience of skin

• Restore skin’s healthy appearance



WHO IS LED LIGHT THERAPY FOR?

Anyone! Really, no joke.

Especially those who suffer from rosacea.

 

However, those who are pregnant, or on certain medications like Accutane, please consult with your doctor or skincare professional first.



IS LED LIGHT THERAPY SAFE?

Yes, it is!

 

Like we said, it supports all skin types and is:  

• Non-invasive 

• Lacks harsh chemicals

• Does not emit harmful UV-rays

A Skin Care Alternative

What if we said NASA plays a major role in your skin care?

You’re probably thinking, “Well, if we can send a man to the moon, we should definitely be able to do something about these spots on my face or lines around my eyes by now.”

Yes. We are so on the same page.

And that’s why we want to tell you that NASA has your back when it comes to anti-aging and acne. 

 

So, what does NASA have to do with your skin care?

 

Welcome to the innovation of Celluma light therapy – a skin care alternative.

 

What is Celluma?

Celluma is an all-in-one low-level light therapy -- cleared by the FDA and backed by clinical research -- devised for anti-aging and acne skin care.

"Celluma light therapy works safely and effectively, without abrasive chemicals, harmful UV-rays or side effects and is a non-toxic, non-abrasive treatment." - Celluma by BioPhotas®

 

How Celluma Works

“Inspired by light. Proven by science.” - Celluma

 

BioPhotas® (the company behind Celluma) explains how this skin care alternative works:


“In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue, high intensity light emitting diodes (LEDs) utilizing specific, proven wavelengths of light can trigger a natural biostimulatory effect in human tissue.

Research has shown that phototherapy can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone, texture and clarity, as well as ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and arthritis.

Research indicates that cells absorb particles of light (photons) and transform their energy into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the form of energy that cells utilize.

The resulting elevation of ATP is then used to power metabolic processes; synthesize DNA, RNA, proteins, enzymes, and other products needed to repair or regenerate cell components; foster mitosis or cell proliferation; and restore homeostasis.

Simply put, the LED light source provides compromised cells with added energy so the cells performance is enhanced. For example, fibroblast cells will increase collagen and elastic production in connective tissue.”
