Red Light Therapy Treatment Protocols

Here are the general and treatment-specific protocols for all Celluma devices. These protocols were the ones in our studies that were shown to produce the most effective results.

General Protocol

For all treatments, you'll need to:

  • Make sure the skin, hair or scalp are clean, bare, and dry. Do not apply skin moisturizers or any other barrier beforehand.
  • Contour closely to the area of treatment (1" or less is optimal)
  • For all treatments, here's a helpful positioning video
  • Use up to 30 minutes per day for maximum benefits
  • After treatment, use products of your choice (e.g., serum and/or mask, moisturizer, or SPF), depending on what you are treating.

Body Contouring Protocol ("CONTOUR" mode)

  • Available only on the 4 new Celluma CONTOUR devices (CONTOUR SYSTEM, CONTOUR BASE, DELUX CONTOUR, and DELUX XL CONTOUR)
  • For optimum results, use 3 times a week for 4 weeks (most users report results after just one treatment)
  • After 4 weeks of use, continue to use the Celluma CONTOUR regularly to maintain results.

Aging Skin Protocol ("WRINKLES" mode)

  • Use at least 2-3 times per week for four weeks
  • The WRINKLES program is dominant with red light to promote collagen and elastin production, reduce inflammation, redness, and effectively treat a variety of age and skin-related conditions. It also emits a moderate dose of blue and near-infrared light.

Hair & Scalp Protocol ("HAIR" mode)

  • Available only on the Celluma RESTORE
  • Use every other day for 16 weeks
  • Separate hair before illumination to expose the part of the scalp suffering from hair loss.

Pain Relief Protocol ("ACHES & PAIN" mode)

  • Use 2-3 times per week for four weeks
  • Depending on the severity of the condition, you may use the device as often as you'd like, even multiple times per day. We recommend spacing time between treatments. For example, if using twice a day, do a morning routine followed by an evening routine.
  • Celluma’s patented shape-taking technology allows you to wrap the device around joints and sore muscles (shoulders, back, knees, wrists, elbows, ankles, hips). Close proximity of the lights to the skin will maximize light energy absorption.

Acne Protocol ("ACNE" mode)

  • Depending on the severity of the condition, use 2-3 times per week for four weeks.
  • The ACNE mode emits blue light to kill acne bacteria and red light to reduce inflammation, increase circulation, and promote tissue repair.
  • You may alternate days with other treatment programs. For example, day 1 - acne, day 2 - wrinkles, day 3 - acne, etc.

Wound Healing* Protocol ("WRINKLES" or "PAIN" mode)

  • For dermal wound healing acceleration following laser ablative resurfacing of facial skin: The Celluma can be used immediately after ablative laser procedures. The best clinical results have been achieved by treating immediately after the procedure then 48-72 hours after the procedure and on days 7,10,14 and 21.
* Celluma devices are not FDA-cleared for wound healing. Celluma is medically CE-marked for wound healing outside the USA for all devices except the RESTORE and CLEAR.
