Top 4 Things To Consider Before Investing In A Light Therapy Device

March 29, 2019

Light masks are everywhere right now.

If you follow the skin care world in the slightest, you’ve probably seen these glowing LED masks worn by celebrity A-listers such as Jessica Alba and Chrissy Teigen.

There are hundreds of light therapy devices to choose from, many of which you can get for under $100. They all promise amazing skin benefits, but the quality and effectiveness of these devices are far from equal.

The good news is that the benefits of light therapy are real and have been scientifically proven time and time again. This means we no longer need to rely on medications to treat acne, rejuvenate our skin, heal chronic pain or wounds, or reverse the signs of aging. Light therapy is the new standard for those who want to heal their bodies naturally.

While there are hundreds of light therapy devices to choose from, we’ve put together the top 4 attributes to consider before you invest in a light therapy device:

1. Clinical Proof

First and foremost, make sure the product you choose has been thoroughly reviewed for effectiveness and safety. This means looking for devices that are FDA-cleared, and medically CE marked to treat the conditions that you are targeting.

When you choose Celluma, you’re getting professional grade light therapy that has been awarded all the above. Our premium products have been rigorously tested, reviewed, and approved by the FDA. In addition to being FDA-cleared, Celluma devices are also medically CE Marked for the treatment of acne, anti-aging, pain management and wound healing.

Every device is embedded with a variation of red, blue, and near-infrared light therapy derived from the same technology originally developed by NASA. All the research and technology packed into our devices has earned us the trust of doctors and medical professionals around the world who use Celluma in their practice. The best part? Celluma offers a wide array of products, so you have the luxury of using clinically-acclaimed light therapy in the comfort of your own home.

2. Functionality

We believe in products that adapt to you.

We are the only light therapy device that can be shaped and reshaped so you can treat your entire body with one product. One of Celluma’s patented features is memory; meaning the device stays in place without being held by hands, stands, arms or cradles.

Beyond being convenient, our products are engineered to be flexible so you can achieve better results from each session. The effectiveness of light therapy is directly related to how well light is absorbed by tissue compromised by aging, injury, disease or illness. A flexible device that conforms to body parts, allows the cells to absorb more of the emitted energy resulting in faster and better results.

Since low-level light therapy (LLLT) is safe enough to be used anywhere on your body, it makes sense that your device should have an adaptable fit. Our patented flexible panels can be laid flat, curved, or wrapped around joints so you get the most out of every light therapy session.

In contrast to Celluma, light masks have a lot of limitations. By design, many only offer beauty and wrinkles as therapy options, so users miss out on the deep tissue restoration that alleviates pain and promotes joint health. And since they can only be used on your face, you’re not able to treat signs of aging on your hands, acne on the back or pain issues anywhere on the body.

In our research, we found many users who tried light masks were uncomfortable during their sessions. Many people would complain of the mask being too heavy and it made their face hot and sweaty. Some even experienced temporary redness and marks lasting about 24 hours.

Light therapy should be a restorative experience for both mind and body. Our flexible devices were designed to do just that. Many customers even tell us they nap when using their Celluma – now that’s light therapy done right!

3. Portability

For many of us, portability and ease of use cannot be overstated. We’re so used to shuffling from home to office so much that we essentially live out of our totes and backpacks.

Compliance is everything, so don’t settle for the hassle of rigid light masks or clunky light machines that require you to adapt to the device instead of the device adapting to you. Celluma products were made to complement your lifestyle so you’re never faced with making compromises to fit in your light therapy session.

Our flexible devices pack flat to fit easily in your everyday bag or carry-on luggage. But you don’t have to be a jet-setter to appreciate items that neatly stow away. Celluma products conveniently tuck in a drawer or closet when not in use.

4. Treatment Options

When comparing devices, it’s important to determine if you want to treat one or more conditions. Celluma devices are cleared to treat a wide variety of skin and pain conditions. Each wavelength of light travels through the skin providing energy to under-functioning cells from the surface of the skin to deep into the muscle and joint layer to bring about different healing effects in the body.

As different conditions respond to different wavelengths, the best results will be achieved with a device that uses multiple, scientifically proven wavelengths of light energy simultaneously.  Celluma uses the following wavelengths:

Blue light kills acne-causing bacteria, clears existing breakouts, and restores the skin’s healthy appearance.

Red light increases collagen and elastin production, improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles, increases circulation, decreases inflammation and aids in wound closure.

Near-infrared affects tissue in a similar way to red but can reach cells deeper in the body.  This wavelength is great for relieving arthritic, joint, and muscle pain and well as muscle stiffness, soreness and spasm.

Of all the wide ranges of light therapy offered today, there are no wavelengths that are more broadly supported in credible scientific research than red, blue and near-infrared so beware of devices that utilize other “colors”.

Celluma offers a wide range of single, dual, and triple mode service devices. Each device is designed with a designated treatments in mind and offers a unique combination of programs to provide optimal results.

Celluma devices are categorized by the following treatment types:

  • Acne
  • Anti-Aging
  • Pain Management
  • Wound Healing
