THE POWER OF LIGHT
Phototherapy occurs naturally in our life and is based on the principle that our cells absorb light and use it to create natural processes of rejuvenation and repair. Different wavelengths stimulate the skin differently. We know that continued exposure to UV light is very damaging, but controlled levels of red, blue and near infrared light are clinically proven to be benefit the skin.
LED phototherapy is the application of these beneficial wavelengths in the different layers of the skin to stimulate our skin cells. This is a natural response similar to that of photosynthesis in plants through a process known as photobiomodulation. The skin cells that benefit from the energy work better and can regenerate up to 200% faster, which leads to a younger, healthier and more radiant skin.
It was through the work of NASA scientists on the use of LED technology for healing and accelerating the healing time of astronauts’ wounds in zero gravity, that an interest in the use of this type was discovered. of light for anti-aging purposes and acne treatment.
Originally developed by NASA for astronauts who could become injured or ill on a long-term space flight, the technology is used today as a safe and natural method of treating a variety of skin conditions such as acne and anti-aging.
Approved by Health Canada and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the medical-grade Celluma photobiomodulation device offers a pain-free and non-invasive treatment that can be used on all skin types. The therapy is performed using three scientifically proven spectra of light and wavelengths. The treatment is anti-bacterial and allows, among other things, the creation of collagen and elastin.
Collagen is this protein of which the skin is mainly made. It is largely responsible for its elasticity and texture. Collagen is directly involved in the repair of damaged skin. Its degradation leads to aging of the skin and wrinkles.
Celluma provides the following therapeutic benefits:
- safe and effective destruction of the P. acnes bacteria of the sebaceous glands responsible for acne
- reduction of inflammation
- improvement in skin texture and firmness
- reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
- improvement of the appearance of stretch marks
- creation of collagen and elastin
- better wound healing
