LED – Light Emitting Diodes

What is LED and what does it do for me?

Light therapy, also known as phototherapy or low-level light therapy, is the application of specific wavelengths of light energy into tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits for a variety of conditions including skin improvement and repair, pain management, and hair restoration. Absorbed light energy improves cellular performance. Phototherapy, or LED red light therapy, has been widely researched and is supported by thousands of peer-reviewed and published clinical research papers from prestigious institutions around the world. This clinical validation is accepted in mainstream medicine by dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons as a non-invasive therapeutic modality for the treatment and healing of skin and wound conditions and by pain professionals for pain relief.

So what does this mean in layman’s terms?

In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into energy, high intensity light emitting diodes (LEDs) utilizing specific, proven wavelengths of light can trigger a natural biostimulatory effect in human tissue. Research has shown that light emitting diode (LED) or phototherapy can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve acne prone skin, improve overall skin tone, texture and clarity, decrease under eye wrinkles as well as ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and pain associated with 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 phototherapy source provides compromised cells with added energy so the cells performance is enhanced.

LED light therapy treatments are non-invasive, painless, require no recovery time, and can be used safely on all skin types.

Who can get this treatment?

LED treatment is colorblind – all ethnicities and gender can benefit and enjoy this professional treatment, barring any health contraindications.

Why do you include LED in many of your treatments?

As your Regenerative Skin Masters, our specialty is stimulating as much new, strong, healthy cell growth (collagen, elastin – skin matrix) as possible each time we treat you. LED enhances the positive effects of the other therapies you are receiving and boosts your progress. In the same manner, the other machines jettison forwards the positive effects of the LED. It is this synergistic relationship between devices that we have been industry leaders with.

Why do you provide Celluma® Pro treatments over other LED companies?

Cleared by the FDA for pain management, skin conditions and hair restoration, Celluma® LED light therapy devices use specific wavelengths of light energy to improve cellular health by accelerating the repair and replenishment of compromised tissue cells for enhanced results. These aesthetic LED devices by Celluma provide the latest in LED technology – we always upgrade to provide you with the most cutting edge tech available.

Can I book just LED appointments or is it only available with other combination treatments?

If you are interested in a series of LED stand-alone treatments, we can curate a package that will meet your needs. Please text or call 332.238.6257.
