Celluma for Acne

With Celluma, Acne Doesn’t Stand a Chance!

Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy is the use of light energy shined on tissue to improve cellular performance. Phototherapy is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties and has a variety of applications across many medical fields.

Let’s Get Your Skin Clear

When bacteria accumulates in pores, skin becomes inflamed, causing acne lesions and blemishes. Celluma light therapy works safely and effectively, without abrasive chemicals, harmful UV-rays or side effects, to destroy acne-causing bacteria – not only clearing up existing blemishes but preventing future breakouts before they happen. In just minutes a day, you’ll be on your way to a clearer, smoother, more radiant complexion.

Who Can Use Celluma

Unlike other types of light therapy, Celluma’s devices do not contain ultraviolet rays (such as UVA – cause of skin aging, UVB – cause of sunburn). Therefore, they’re safe for regular use.

In general, side effects from Red Light Therapy are rare. If they do occur, they typically involve temporary redness of the skin in the treated area. Side effects are minor and do not last long.

LED light therapy has no down time compared to other anti-aging treatments such as chemical peels, dermabrasion, and laser therapy. It is safe for all skin colors and types. 

LED light therapy is not compatible with Accutane (must wait 6 months), cortisone/steroid injections (must wait 1 week), light sensitive medications, pregnant or nursing mothers, children under 12, history of epilepsy/seizures, using Retin A, known cancer, tumor or metastasis.

Safe For Eyes

Celluma wavelengths fall within a range that does not include UVA or UVB light, therefore it is not harmful to the eyes. In fact, there is good clinical research showing the use of low level light therapy to accelerate healing of retinal injuries. The devices have been rigorously tested in particular requirements for the basic safety and essential performance of non-laser light source equipment use.  The Celluma falls in the “exempt” classification, meaning that it will not cause eye damage. 

While red light is considered safe for the eyes, some people find it too bright. Simple tanning glasses (provided) can make the experience more comfortable.
