Ask your provider about adding Celluma onto your acupuncture, massage or salt chamber session.
Customers may also rent a Celluma from Isthmus Wellness for home use. Contact us to find out how!
We use the FDA-cleared Celluma PRO LED Light device to amplify results of our acupuncture and massage treatments. We also offer this highly portable device for rental so clients can support their healing at home!
Celluma is a light energy device based on NASA researched LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology. LED therapy, also known as phototherapy or low-level light therapy, is the application of specific wavelengths of light energy to body tissue for healing purposes via improved cellular metabolism, repair and performance. Celluma is recognized by the FDA to treat arthritis, muscle and joint stiffness, and its portability make it well-suited to prevention and treatment of sports-related injuries.
Research has shown that low level light therapy can:
- improve skin tone, texture and clarity
- ease arthritis
- reduce muscle and joint pain and stiffness
- decrease under-eye wrinkles
- kill acne bacteria
- accelerate tissue repair
- increase circulation
- decrease inflammation
How Light Therapy Works
The light energy (photons) emitted by LED light sources is absorbed by photoreceptors in cellular mitochondria. This energy is transformed in adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the principal molecule for storing and transferring energy in cells. The ATP produced then stimulates various metabolic processes which can result in decreased inflammation, and the repair and regeneration of cell and tissue components.
Blue, red and near-infrared are the most commonly used wavelengths in LED phototherapy. These specific wavelengths are well researched and scientifically proven to produce therapeutic benefits. Blue penetrates through the epidermis and is known to kill P.acnes bacteria. Red penetrates into the dermal layer and has been shown to enhance collagen and elastin production through photo-biostimulation of fibroblasts. Near-infrared penetrates deepest and increases micro-circulation (tissue repair), decreases inflammation and attenuates pain.
Each Celluma device incorporates wavelengths of blue, red, and near-infrared light energy simultaneously emitted in proprietary combinations to target specific issues.
Celluma LED devices are FDA cleared to treat the following conditions:
- Full face wrinkles
- Inflammatory acne vulgaris
- Diminished local blood circulation
- Muscle & joint stiffness
- Muscle tissue tension
- Muscle & joint pain
- Muscle spasm
- Arthritic pain
- Cleared for Over-The-Counter use (note: this is known as OTC clearance and requires a higher level of both efficacy and safety data to be provided to and passed by the FDA)
