I have been using LED Therapy in my treatments and on myself at-home for over 20 years. It is a non-invasive way to naturally improve skin health. There are so many benefits it provides including: boosting collagen production, combating acne and redness, increasing product efficacy, and alleviating muscle and joint pain (among others.) It is also safe and painless, making it ideal for all skin conditions and can even be used on chemotherapy patients.
Celluma At-Home LED Device
The device I recommend very highly is the The Celluma PRO LED Panel. It is a Class II medical device, featuring professional grade LEDs with three treatment modes, and is FDA cleared for treatment of full face wrinkles. The “Wrinkles” setting uses red LED, “Acne” uses blue LED, and “Aches & Pains” uses infrared LED.
Red Light Therapy
Red light increases collagen and elastin production, so this will help to firm the skin and diminish existing wrinkles. It also increases circulation and product penetration while relieving inflammation.
Blue Light Therapy
Blue light kills acne-causing bacteria, so it’s extremely effective to control breakouts, bacterial rosacea, it can help decrease cold sores and some types of dermatitis.
Infrared Light Therapy
Infrared heats the tissues from within, so this is very effective for sore muscles and joints. It also has nerve regenerating qualities, so it can be helpful for neuralgia.
Using LED Therapy at Home
The elongated flexible panel is versatile - users can dome it over the face, wrap it around extremities or lay it flat over the body. The control panel is set to automatically shut off after 30 minutes, and has a Pulse option for an intensified treatment. It also comes with universal travel adapters and protective goggles.
For best results, the Celluma PRO should be used four times per week for 30 minutes. First cleanse and tone the skin, then place the Celluma PRO over the treatment area and select the desired program. When using over the face, always be sure to wear the included protective goggles. After treatment, mist the skin with a hydrating toner and continue with the rest of your routine.
To boost the efficacy of the Environ Mela Program, use the “Wrinkles” setting to increase product penetration. Cleanse and tone with your recommended formula of Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 or Environ Botanical Infused Moisturizing Toner, apply Environ Mela-Prep Lotion and Environ Mela-Fade Serums A & B. Position the Celluma PRO on the “Wrinkles” setting for 20-30 minutes. When finished, complete your routine with Environ C-Boost Mela-Even Cream and your recommended vitamin A product.
For a great pre-event glow, use the Celluma PRO over a clear biocellulose sheet mask. Cleanse, tone, apply your water-based serums and apply 111Skin Y Theorem Bio Cellulose Sheet Mask. Position the Celluma PRO on the “Wrinkles” setting for 20-30 minutes. When finished, apply Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream for a brilliant glow.
