Celluma Pro

Originally developed by NASA for astronauts who could become injured or ill on long-term space missions, low-level-light therapy is used today as a safe and natural method of treating a variety of skin and pain conditions such as acne, wrinkles, aging skin and pain..


​Celluma LED Light Therapy is the only all-in-one LED light therapy device designed to manage a variety of pain and skin conditions. Cleared by the FDA, and Health Canada for pain management and skin care. Celluma LED light therapy devices use specific wavelengths of light energy to improve cellular health by accelerating the repair and replenishment of compromised tissue cells. 

So what is LED light therapy? Light therapy is the application of specific wavelengths of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits.

The energy delivered is then used to improve cellular performance. Light therapy can be delivered through light emitting diode (LEDs) devices or cold lasers, and has a variety of applications across many medical fields.

It has been widely researched and is supported by thousands of peer-reviewed and published clinical research papers from prestigious institutions around the world. Other terms by which light therapy is know 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 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.

How it Works

In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into energy, 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 LED light therapy can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone, texture and clarity, decrease under eye wrinkles as well as ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and pain associated with 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 elastin production in connective tissue to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and increase the rate of wound healing.

Celluma Versatility

Patented, pulsed-wave technology controlled by proprietary software algorithms add to the applicability of Celluma light therapy.  Celluma Pro is polychromatic and deliver blue (465nm), red (640nm) and infrared (880nm) light energy simultaneously to safely treat a wide variety of conditions easily. Each wavelength is absorbed by different molecules that act as a signaling mechanism for different cellular processes.

Anti-Ageing

Ageing could be described as the degradation of the metabolic process. For as long as we can remember, humans have pursued ways of minimizing the effects of ageing. We do this because we all want to get the most joy and fulfillment from our finite time on earth. We want more quality time with our spouse and children, more belly laughs with our friends, more time to travel, and more time to leave our mark on the world.

Many spas and wellness centers now offer specific anti-ageing treatments to combat a wide variety side effects of the ageing process, including red LED light therapy. And while we can’t literally turn back the hands of time, there are steps we can take now to improve and maintain our best appearance.

So how can we safely and effectively reduce and even reverse the effects of aging?

Collagen

When it comes to ageing, a significant factor that leads to wrinkles, fine lines, and joint pain is due to inadequate collagen levels. Collagen is the main structural protein found in your skin and other connective tissue. Collagen literally holds our bodies together. An easy way to remember what collagen does is to look at the Greek prefix ‘kolla’ which means glue.

Increased fibroblast proliferation is just one benefit of LED red light therapy. Fibroblasts make collagen fibers, so it stands to reason that the more, and healthier, fibroblasts we have in the skin, the more and better collagen fibers are made. And as we all know, collagen synthesis and maintenance is the bedrock of anti-aging.

Healthy collagen levels are what give us a glowing complexion, firm skin, strong nails, dense bones, and healthy hair. It is also essential in keeping muscles, joints, and tendons in healthy working order. Simply put, the more our bodies produce collagen, the better we’ll look and feel as we get older.

Signs of Ageing

Fibroblast cells are responsible for producing collagen and elastin, the two most common proteins in connective tissue. However, as we age, our fibroblasts become compromised resulting in lower levels of these proteins. We might start noticing decreased elasticity in our skin, wrinkles, and our joints may not move as freely as they used to. This is because lower levels of collagen lead to breakdowns in cartilage which can cause inflammation, soreness, stiffness, arthritis, and prolonged recovery time after physical activity. Other common signs of aging can include:

  • Skin deterioration

  • Melasma

  • Arthritis

  • Inflammation

  • Chronic joint and muscle pain

  • Keratosis

If you’re experiencing one or more of these signs, then it could be an indicator your collagen levels are deficient.

Anti-Ageing Treatment with LED Light Therapy

Now that we've established a base understanding of why collagen is essential as we age, let's look at the most groundbreaking and natural way to effectively generate more collagen in your body using the anti-aging effect of LED light therapy.

Proven red and near-infrared wavelengths are utilized in the Celluma SERIES of LED light therapy devices to combat the signs of aging. These specific wavelengths of light energy are clinically verified to enhance your body's natural ability to generate collagen and elastin by activating the fibroblast cells.

No prescriptions. No medications. No injections. No surgery. Just safe, natural wavelengths of effective, proven light energy.

Celluma Works to Boost Collagen Production

Let’s quickly run through two biology basics: the Krebs Cycle and Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP).

1. The Krebs cycle is what generates cellular energy inside your body. Light activation boosts the body’s natural Krebs Cycle which in turn assists in creating more ATP.
2. ATP is the energy currency of all the cells in your body. When your body has sufficient ATP levels, then it has more energy to spend on restorative processes such as collagen elastin production – these are the proteins your body uses to heal itself.

In summary: Light Therapy = Enhanced Krebs (energy) Cycle = Greater ATP Availability = More Collagen

When all of those important metabolic events are happening, it then results in greater outcomes beyond just collagen production. We see a cascade of benefits such as:

  • Cell generation to replace old cells (mitosis)

  • Reduction and prevention of cell death (apoptosis)

  • Neurogenesis (new neurons)

  • Development of new capillaries (angiogenesis)

  • Increased blood flow

  • Enhanced Nitric Oxide production

The synergistic effect is that your body is optimized to heal itself. Patients who use Celluma LED light therapy devices begin seeing:

  • Skin rejuvenation and the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines

  • Accelerated healing of chronic wounds. *

  • General pain reduction including muscle, joint and arthritic pains.

What Does It Feel Like to Use Celluma?

Using Celluma light therapy devices is very relaxing. A single session lasts approximately 30 minutes. Most patients experience immediate results and leave their skin feeling like it is glowing. Stiff, sore and painful joints may experience improvements with one to three sessions. Keep in mind that results vary from patients to patient depending on the severity of the condition and adherence to protocols.

Celluma’s anti-aging LED therapy is designed to truly change the way people rejuvenate and recover. We no longer need to rely solely on costly medications, risky injections, or invasive surgery now that we have the technology to give our bodies the boost to heal naturally.

Acne Treatment

Acne is a persistent medical skin condition that can affect your face, chest, back, shoulders, and arms, and although it does not necessarily impact our physical health, it can absolutely take a mental toll. Acne can make us feel ugly and self-conscious, wanting to retreat in our homes and hide from the world. And although acne is totally normal and nothing to be ashamed of, it can still place unnecessary stress on everyday life.

When a particularly extreme acne breakout happens, it can feel like nothing works fast enough to get us back in the clear. LED Light Therapy for acne is a tremendous treatment option for fast results.

What Causes Acne?

Acne is an extremely common skin condition, and it affects approximately 50 million Americans every year. In fact, 3 out of 4 people aged 11-30 years old have experienced acne at least once in their lives.

Acne develops when an abundance of dead skin cells and a naturally-produced oil called sebum plug tiny hair follicles, or pores. As sebum production continues to build under the plug in the skin’s surface, it becomes infected with P. acne bacteria, causing swelling, redness, and inflammation.

Acne presents itself in many ways - whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, and cysts are all common forms of acne, and each type can require a different approach for treatment. Although acne is often considered a “teenage issue,” it can occur to any person at any age for a wide array of reasons.

Why do Adults get Acne?

Although acne is typically thought to only affect teenagers and people in their early 20s, acne is actually very common in adults, as well. Some people experience acne into their 30s, 40s, and 50s, and even if they never suffered from acne as a teenager, “adult-onset acne” is a thing, typically caused by pregnancy, menopause, and other hormonal imbalances. What’s worse, women are affected by adult-onset acne much more than men. So unfair, right

There is not one clear answer as to what causes acne in adults, but it’s believed that a variety of factors such as hormones, genetics, diet, stress, makeup, poor skin care, and other underlying medical issues can cause adult acne, just to name just a few

What are Common Acne Treatments?

If you suffer from acne, it’s more than likely you’ve tried your fair share of treatments. From over-the-counter cleansers, creams, masks, and serums to even more extreme measures like prescription antibiotics and even Accutane. The options go on.

Dermatologists recommend that people with acne take care to wash their face twice daily with a gentle yet effective cleanser. Touching your face, over-exfoliating, and applying heavy comedogenic creams are also serious no-no’s. But beyond that? There is no one-size-fits-all approach to tackling acne, and something that works for one person might not work for another. Some people require a more specialized acne treatment “cocktail” of sorts to finally eliminate the breakouts for good. The problem is, it can take months -- or years -- to figure out which treatment, or combination of treatments, will finally banish adult acne and keep it from coming back. What’s more, conventional chemical-based acne treatments can often dry out skin and cause even more irritation, exacerbating acne breakouts and their side effects.

How can Blue Light Therapy Eliminate Acne Faster?

If you suffer from acne, it’s likely you’ve heard of light therapy as a possible solution to your pimple woes. LED blue light therapy is the new wave of skin care for people who have tried other acne treatments, but still aren’t seeing the results they want. Light therapy is non-toxic, non-invasive, and really, really effective.

LED light therapy works by killing acne-causing bacteria at the source, deep beneath the skin’s surface. As people across the nation are searching for more natural, chemical-free alternatives to traditional medical solutions, light therapy fits the bill perfectly. Blue LED light therapy emits specific, clinically-proven wavelengths of light to trigger an all-natural effect in human tissue, killing acne-causing bacteria, decreasing inflammation, and improving skin tone, texture, and clarity from the inside out. However, not all light therapy is created equal.

Blue and red LED light light-therapy is widely used as an effective option for the treatment of inflammatory acne. One study concluded that “…blue light and red light may act synergistically in improving acne by combining antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action, rendering phototherapy with blue and/or red light an effective and safe treatment for acne vulgaris.


Because of the ability to place the device close to the skin, Celluma out performs many even more expensive devices that cannot mold closely to the treatment area.

Celluma’s blue wavelengths kill the bacteria that causes breakouts, while reducing the inflammation, pimples and redness associated with acne. A reduction in lesions and overall improvement in skin appearance is often seen in only a matter of weeks. Of course, outcomes vary depending on severity of the condition and compliance to recommended protocols.

Pain Management

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. In fact, you don’t even need to leave your house. With the development of portable Infrared light therapy device design, people can take advantage of self-administered light therapy at home. However, not all lig

What is Infrared Light Therapy?

Much like plants, scientific research has shown that human bodies can absorb particles of light (photons) and transform that light energy into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the form of energy needed to power metabolic processes, improve cellular performance, and encourage tissue repair and regeneration. Modern LED light therapy utilizes three types of wavelengths; Blue, Red, and Near-Infrared. Blue and Red light therapy provide great aesthetic benefits such as acne treatment and increased collagen production, helping to achieve the signature youthful glow people associate with light therapy facials.

Infrared, however, particularly near-infrared, offers a whole new set of medical benefits that are clinically proven to penetrate deep below the skin’s surface layer to target muscle and joint pain at the source, providing much-needed relief for people who suffer from inflammation and injury.

How Does Light Therapy for Pain Work?

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.


Treatment is non-invasive, requires no recovery time, and can be used on all skin types.

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.

Wound Healing

In original research conducted at the prestigious Beckman LASER Institute at the University of California, Celluma was clinically proven to speed the rate of wound closure equaling or outperforming cold LASERs of similar optical parameters4.

The Celluma is medically CE- Marked in Europe for all FDA indications-for-use as well as for Dermal Wound Healing as a Class 11A medical device in the European Union. Ideal for use following surgery to enhance healing of incisions or non-healing wounds, Celluma LED therapy can help reduce patient down-time and fight infection while increasing overall patient satisfaction.

Light therapy has been shown to accelerate tissue repair, decrease wound size and accelerate wound closure as well as other beneficial effects. These mechanisms have been demonstrated to promote dermal wound healing as well as reduce the pain associated with the healing process. The Celluma is intended to be used for dermal wound healing referring to the treatment of surface wounds existing at the outer 2mm of the skin and including normal, acute post-surgical and chronic wound healing including but not limited to diabetic ulcers

The seminal research for Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT), also known as LED therapy, was conducted by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center out of concern for astronauts who might be injured or become ill during long term space flight. In response to this health risk, NASA developed LED (light emitting diode) technology that showed great promise for delivering light energy deep into the body to promote wound healing and human tissue growth. The therapeutic benefits of LLLT has been demonstrated in thousands of clinical studies, articles and peer reviewed literature to show that the mechanism for action is cellular absorption of photons (light energy) and the increased production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the form of energy which cells utilize to fuel cellular activity. The resulting ATP is then used to power metabolic processes, which includes synthesizing DNA, RNA, and the proteins and enzymes needed to repair or regenerate cells.

Low level-light therapy has been shown decrease a patient’s recovery time while reducing discomfort levels and enhancing overall outcomes. It is ideally suited following any ablative procedure as well as pre and post-surgery for the following reasons:

  • Phototherapy has been shown to accelerate tissue repair, decrease wound size, accelerate the resolution of erythema, accelerate wound closure and prevent dehiscence¹.

  • Phototherapy prior to surgery may reduce the incidence of hypertrophic scars and keloids ².

  • Ongoing post-surgery photo-rejunvenation² (activation of fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin, stimulation of keratinocytes which produce keratin to provide structural strength to the skin).

  • Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation prevention².

  • Activation of mast, macrophage and neutrophil cells can decrease inflammation and protect against infection.

  • Phototherapy is anti-bacterial. The presence of P-acne bacteria can lead to post-operative infections, particularly in shoulder surgery. Using the professional grade LED light therapy prior to surgery can decrease the presence of this bacteria

comparable levels of cell migration and wound closure.

 

FAQs

Happy to Enlighten You

What is low-level-light therapy?

Low-level-light therapy or photobiomodulation is based on Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology and is the application of light energy to the body for therapeutic benefits. It promotes a natural photobiochemical reaction similar to the process of plant photosynthesis. The energy delivered by the LEDs has been shown to enhance cellular metabolism, accelerate the repair and replenishment of damaged skin cells, as well as stimulate the production of collagen — the foundation of healthy, smooth skin. Research has shown that LED light therapy may help smooth skin texture, improve skin firmness and resilience, increase lymphatic system activity, restore skin’s natural cellular activity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and superficial hyperpigmentation. The treatment is for all skin types, and is non-ablative, non-invasive, painless, and requires absolutely no downtime. Patients or clients can return to their normal activity immediately after the treatment.


For what purpose is light therapy used?

-Based on extensive research, low-level-light therapy devices have been cleared by the FDA, and shown to manage:
