Many make-up formulas contain minerals that may deflect the light. Clean, freshly washed skin is recommended for best results.
Are there any special preparations required before using LED light therapy?
The LED light panel should be in close proximity with the skin which should be free of clothing, make-up, or anything else which may deflect the light away from the skin.
How long does a LED light therapy session last?
Does LED light therapy utilize UV light?
No, LED light therapy devices utilize a combination of blue, red, and infrared (not visible to the naked eye) light emitting diodes (LEDs) only.
Does LED light therapy hurt?
No, LED light therapy is non-invasive, and is painless when used as intended.
Are there any harmful side effects to LED light therapy?
LED light technology generates negligible amounts of heat, is clinically proven to be safe, and has achieved non-significant risk status for human trials by the FDA.
So how on earth did NASA come to be involved??
LED (Light Emitting Diodes) is not new. Red, infra-red and blue lights are already popular in the world of skin care. What is new is how this device delivers the light.
Developed by NASA in response to their concern of the slow healing of astronauts who get injured in space, Celluma is FDA-approved. In scientific terms, “NASA’s LED device stimulates the basic energy processes in the mitochondria (the energy-producing compartments) of each cell, particularly when near-infrared light is used to activate color-sensitive chemicals (chromospheres, cytochrome systems) inside the cell.”
How does LED work?
Based on scientific research pioneered by NASA, Celluma triggers a cascade of metabolic processes which restores compromised cellular function, creating a path to revitalized, wrinkle-free and blemish-free skin.
