What is LED Light Therapy?

Light-emitting diode (LED) phototherapy is the application of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. The main benefits include acne, wrinkles or anti-aging, pain, and even wound healing. The energy is used to improve cellular performance. Phototherapy is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties and has a variety of applications across many medical fields.

Research has shown that phototherapy can:

  • Kill acne bacteria
  • Accelerate tissue repair
  • Decrease wrinkles
  • Improve skin tone and wrinkles
  • Texture and clarity
  • Increase circulation and much more.

What Professional Led Light Therapy Devices do we use?

Skincare should be backed by science; at Find A Better You med spa, we take that to heart. We use 2 different devices for light therapy: LightStim and Celluma.

What is Celluma?

Celluma LED Light Therapy

Cleared by the FDA for pain management and skin care, Celluma Pro LED light therapy devices use specific wavelengths of light energy to improve cellular health by accelerating the repair and replenishment of compromised tissue cells. Based on NASA research, Celluma delivers blue, red, and near-infrared light energy simultaneously to safely treat a wide variety of conditions.

Each wavelength is absorbed by different molecules that act as a signaling mechanism for different cellular processes. For example, some reduce inflammation and some kill bacteria, while others enhance localized circulation.

How often should you get Celluma Treatments?

It is very safe, you could even use it every day. Although we recommend using it 2-3 times a week. The more often Celluma is used, the faster you may see results. It can also be used on multiple areas of the body, on the same day.

Frequently Asked Questions about LED Light Therapy:

What is low-level light therapy (LED 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 LED light therapy used?

Based on extensive research, low-level-light therapy devices have been cleared by the FDA, and shown to manage: Mild to moderate acne vulgaris, Superficial, benign vascular and pigment lesions, Periorbital wrinkles and rhytides, Sub-optimal local blood flow and circulation, Minor muscle and joint aches, Minor muscle and joint pain, Pain and stiffness associated with arthritis, Minor arthritis or muscle spasms, and Minor chronic neck and shoulder pain of a musculoskeletal origin.

Are there any harmful side effects to low-level light therapy?

LED devices are considered extremely low risk when used as intended.

Does Light therapy hurt?

No. Light therapy is non-invasive and is painless when used as intended.

Why do I need to remove my makeup?

Many makeup formulas contain minerals that may deflect light. Clean, freshly washed skin is recommended for best results.
