You may have bought a plasma TV back 15 or so years ago only to find out it lost the technology race against light emitting diodes. Kind of like Beta versus VHS back in the days when videotape still existed!
Well, LEDs may be winning the light treatment battle in the aesthetic world, as well. At AesthetiSpa, we offer the latest light treatment using high-intensity LEDs. It’s called Celluma Low-Level Light Therapy, and it works to reduce acne breakouts, rejuvenate your skin, and even help with pain.
For this month’s two blogs, let’s come into the light, the LED light of Celluma at AesthetiSpa.
What is Celluma?
The FDA has cleared Celluma Low-Level Light Therapy for skin care and pain management. Celluma is the only all-in-one low-level light therapy device that improves cellular health by accelerating the repair and replenishment of compromised tissue cells. These treatments are completely non-invasive, pain-free, can be used on all skin types, and don’t require a minute of downtime.
How does Celluma work?
The key to these treatments happens at the cellular level. Celluma works to improve cellular performance through the delivering of high-intensity light. Celluma’s high-intensity LEDs trigger a natural biostimulatory effect in human tissue. It’s similar to the way plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight. Research into LED light has shown it can enhance cellular metabolism, accelerate the repair and replenishment of damaged skin cells, as well as stimulate the production of new collagen, the foundation of healthy, firm, youthful looking skin.
Celluma’s LED low-level light therapy is FDA approved for both skin rejuvenation, acne improvement, and pain relief. This technology was originally developed for NASA astronauts for use on injuries and illness during long-term space missions. Now, we offer it for our AesthetiSpa patients. And we don’t make you have to go through those gut-wrenching G-force tests, either!
Are there any side effects or risks with Celluma treatments?
These treatments are considered to be extremely low risk when used as intended in a professional setting. When compared to laser or IPL energy, this LED technology generates negligible amounts of heat so it is completely comfortable and can’t burn the skin.
In October’s second blog, we’ll get into some details about Celluma and individual areas it improves. Are you interested in these LED treatments? Call us at AesthetiSpa, (843) 849-9925, to schedule your session.
