LED Light Therapy
Here at Face the Future Clinic we use Celluma for our LED light therapy. It is a unique and unlike any other low-level light therapy device available. Based on NASA research Celluma delivers blue, red and near-infrared light energy simultaneously to safely treat a wide variety of skin conditions.
How LED Light Therapy Works?
Celluma light therapy promotes a natural photo biochemical reaction similar to the process of plant photosynthesis to deliver safe, UV-free, low-level light energy through FDA cleared, high-intensity LED devices. Each wavelength is absorbed by different molecules that act as a signalling mechanism for different cellular processes. Low-level-light therapy is based on Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology and is the application of light energy to the body for therapeutic benefits. 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.
The Celluma uses three different lights to combat skin concerns:
Red light - is used for age-management to increase collagen production, reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skins firmness and resilience and lessen inflammation.
Blue light - is used to diminish acne bacteria, clear existing breakouts restoring a clear healthy appearance.
Near-infrared light - is used to improve the circulation of oxygen-rich blood in the body, promoting faster healing of deep tissues and pain relief.
LED light therapy can also be used as a powerful stand-alone therapy but also ideal following other treatments such as Micro needling, HydraFacial and skin peels to enhance the outcome following your treatment.
Duration of treatment – Approximately 20-30 minutes.
Anaesthesia required – None.
Downtime – Light therapy is non-ablative, non-invasive, painless, and requires zero downtime. You can return to your normal activity immediately after the treatment.
Final results – Treatment results will vary depending on the condition been treated.
Suitable for – All skin types
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
Approximately 20-30 minutes. Treatment results will vary depending on the condition been treated. However, you should notice a reduction in erythema (redness) and a more even tone after the first session.
DOES THE TREATMENT HURT AND HAVE ANY DOWNTIME?
No, the treatment feels relaxing as you are laid underneath the LED device, light therapy is non-ablative, non-invasive and requires zero downtime. The treatment is suitable for all skin types. Primarily used to treat acne, rosacea and age management. The number of treatments needed vary, depending on the concern that is being treated.
During the consultation, we will be able to recommend the correct amount of treatments needed to achieve the best results.
