FAQS


WHAT IS LOW-LEVEL LIGHT THERAPY (BIOPHOTONIC THERAPY)?

Biophotonic therapy is based on Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology and is the application of light energy to the body for therapeutic benefits. It promotes a natural photobiochemical reaction similar to the process of plant photosynthesis. The energy delivered by the LEDs has been shown to enhance cellular metabolism, accelerate the repair and replenishment of damaged skin cells, as well as stimulate the production of collagen — the foundation of healthy, smooth skin. Research has shown that LED light therapy may help smooth skin texture, improve skin firmness and resilience, increase lymphatic system activity, restore skin’s natural cellular activity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and superficial hyperpigmentation. The treatment is for all skin types, and is non-ablative, non-invasive, painless, and requires absolutely no downtime. Patients or clients can return to their normal activity immediately after the treatment.


ARE THERE ANY HARMFUL SIDE EFFECTS TO LOW-LEVEL LIGHT THERAPY?

LED devices are considered extremely low risk when used as intended.


ARE THERE ANY HARMFUL SIDE EFFECTS?

LED devices are considered extremely low risk when used as intended.

HOW SAFE IS BIOPHOTONIC THERAPY?

Biophotonic therapy is based on light emitting diode (LED) technology developed for NASA-manned space flight experiments. In comparison to lasers, the patented LED technology generates negligible amounts of heat and is not considered a significant risk device.

DOES BIOPHOTONIC THERAPY UTILIZE UV LIGHT?

No. Biophotonic devices utilize a combination of blue, red, and infrared (not visible to the naked eye) light emitting diodes (LEDs) only.


HOW LONG DOES A CELLUMA SESSION LAST?

30 minutes addition to your existing facial appointment.


ARE THERE ANY SPECIAL PREPARATIONS REQUIRED BEFORE USING CELLUMA?

Celluma should be in close proximity to the area being treated. Skin should also be free of clothing, makeup, or anything else that may deflect light away from the skin.


WHY DO I NEED TO REMOVE MY MAKEUP?

Many makeup formulas contain minerals that may deflect light. Clean, freshly washed skin is recommended for best results.

CAN I APPLY MAKEUP AFTER A CELLUMA SESSION?

Yes. You may resume all normal activities immediately following use.


WHO CAN USE CELLUMA?

Celluma can be used by the entire family. It is designed to manage a wide variety of musculoskeletal and skin conditions.


Please note: When making changes to your health and wellness routine, it is advisable to consult with your physician before proceeding.

At the end of the last century, research scientists and physicians in conjunction with NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, began investigating the impact of microgravity and hypergravity on human and plant cell growth. Concerned for astronauts who could become injured or ill on a long-term space flight, NASA studies concluded that gravity is necessary for normal cell growth, noting, “wounds heal less effectively in space than here on Earth.”

In response to this significant health risk, NASA developed light emitting diode (LED) technology that showed great promise for delivering light deep into tissues of the body to promote wound healing and human tissue growth. “NASA’s LED device stimulates the basic energy process in the mitochondria (energy producing compartments) of each cell, particularly when near-infrared light is used to activate color sensitive chemicals (chromospheres, cytochrome systems) inside the cell.” NASA also reported that DNA synthesis in fibroblasts and muscle cells quadrupled when exposed to LED light. Based on these findings, NASA observed this type of improved wound healing could also benefit civilian medical care, military situations, and long-term space flight.

Technology developed by NASA using LED has been scientifically proven by many recent clinical trials to up-regulate cellular function in the treatment of many common conditions, restoring the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Contrast to many widely accepted therapies where vital tissue is intentionally damaged to elicit a healing response, using LED light to re-energize cellular function in a non-invasive manner allows the body to regain vitality as nature intended.
