What is LED light therapy

We are very excited to announce that we are now offering low level LED light therapy at our beauty bar! This technology is some of the most advanced technology when it comes to skin care. LED light therapy was originally developed by NASA for astronauts who became injured or ill on long-term space missions. It was found to produce cell rejuvenation in a climate in which they were not being exposed to the right kinds of light. Today low-level-light therapy is used as a safe UV-free and natural method of treating a variety of skin and pain conditions such as acne, anti-aging, and pain. The treatment is non-invasive, painless, requires no recovery time, and can be used on all skin types. It’s the application of specific wavelengths of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. The energy delivered is then used to improve cellular performance. Low-level light therapy can be delivered through light emitting diode (LED) devices.

In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue, low level LED light therapy utilizing specific, proven wavelengths of light can trigger a natural biostimulatory effect in human tissue. Research has shown that phototherapy can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone, texture and clarity, as well as ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and arthritis. Research indicates that cells absorb particles of light (photons) and transform their energy into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the form of energy that cells utilize. The resulting elevation of ATP is then used to power metabolic processes; synthesize DNA, RNA, proteins, enzymes, and other products needed to repair or regenerate cell components; foster mitosis or cell proliferation; and restore homeostasis. Simply put, the LED light source provides compromised cells with added energy so the cells performance is enhanced. For example, fibroblast cells will increase collagen and elastic production in connective tissue.

The unit that we have chosen is by a company named Celluma. Their devices are safe, clinically proven, FDA-cleared and medically CE marked.
