Near Infrared Light Therapy with Celluma
With various devices flooding online shopping channels and late night television, it’s time to define what LED light therapy really is, specifically near infrared light therapy and what it does to our bodies at the cellular level.
One of the easiest ways to explain infrared light therapy is to think of it as photosynthesis for mammals. Just like plants, scientific research has shown that human bodies can absorb light particles called photons and transform that light energy into adenosine triphosphate or ATP. ATP is what powers the metabolic processes in our cells, thus improving overall cellular performance and encouraging tissue repair and regeneration. It’s also important to understand what near infrared light therapy is not. It is not the same light used in tanning booths and it does not expose your skin to harmful UV rays.
Today’s LED light therapy devices use three types of wavelengths: Blue, Red, and Near-Infrared. The blue and red LED light provides great aesthetic benefits including the treatment of acne and “maskne” and increasing collagen production to help reduce those under-eye wrinkles and laugh lines. Near infrared provides medical benefits that are clinically proven to penetrate deep below the surface layer of the skin to better target muscle and joint pain right where it starts. This gives people much needed pain relief from inflammation and injury.
With 11 models to choose from, Celluma uses all three wavelengths of Blue, Red and Near Infrared to treat acne, wrinkles and pain. With professional and home LED devices, you can select the LED light therapy machine that is right for you. Unlike other LED light therapy devices, Celluma is FDA-cleared and is the only shape-taking LED panel on the market. It has the ability to contour close to the surface of the skin for increased light absorption and optimal therapeutic benefits.
