What is LED Light Therapy?

Photobiomodulation (also known as phototherapy) in skincare is a therapeutic approach that uses light to stimulate biological processes at the cellular level. This technique is also known as LED light therapy or photodynamic therapy.

The Celluma® provides blue, red, and infrared light.

What are the benefits of LED Light to the skin?

  1. LED light promotes cell regeneration and accelerates the healing process by increasing blood circulation.
  2. LED light reduces inflammation by modulating immune responses.
  3. LED light helps target wrinkles and improve skin texture as it stimulates collagen production. Collagen naturally produced by our bodies contributes to the firmness and elasticity of the skin.
  4. LED light targets Acne-Causing Bacteria. Blue light is particularly effective against Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) bacteria, which play a major role in acne development. These bacteria are sensitive to light in the blue wavelength range (approximately 405 to 470 nanometers). Blue light penetrates the epidermis and exerts an antibacterial effect.

What do the different colours in LED Light therapy do?

Blue Light

Blue light works by penetrating the upper layers of the epidermis, where it targets the bacteria responsible for acne.

Key Benefits

  • Reduction and prevention of acne, as well as imperfections and inflammation.
  • Promotes healing of skin lesions associated with acne. Regulates sebum production.

Frequency of Use
Two sessions per week for 4-6 weeks are recommended to target acne and promote the benefits mentioned above.

Red Light

Red light penetrates deeper into the skin than blue light, reaching the dermal layer.

Key Benefits

  • Promotes collagen production, which can reduce wrinkles and fine lines and improve overall skin texture.
  • Healing and tissue repair: Improves cell regeneration, accelerates wound healing, and reduces scars.
  • Anti-inflammatory effects: Can reduce inflammation and redness, which is beneficial for conditions such as rosacea or following invasive skin treatments, such as microneedling.

How long will it take to see results from LED Light Treatment?

After 1 session: Immediately more radiant, glowing skin from within.

After several sessions: Unified complexion: less apparent fine lines, firmer skin, reduced scars, inflammation, and redness.

For acne, a reduction in inflammation may be observed after one to two Celluma® sessions.

Please note that it is not possible to guarantee Celluma® results before the skin renewal cycle is complete, which is typically 30 to 45 days after the first Celluma® session (especially regarding firmness, fine lines, etc.)

How often can I do an LED Light Treatment?

A light therapy session can be performed at most every other day.

Who should avoid LED Light Therapy?

  • Not recommended if you have a history of epilepsy or seizures.
  • Not recommended for children under 12 years old.
  • If you are currently receiving cancer treatment, please seek approval from your doctor.
  • If you are taking photosensitive medications, please wait 3-5 days between taking medication and your Celluma® LED light therapy session.
