First of all, it is good to know LED therapy is one the most effective solution to treat Acne, muscle and joint pain, Hair Restoration, and wound healing.
What is Light Therapy?
Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy applies light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. The energy is used to improve cellular performance. Phototherapy is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties and has a variety of applications across many medical fields. Research has shown that phototherapy can: increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, decrease wrinkles, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone and wrinkles, texture and clarity, ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm and arthritis and kill acne bacteria, and much more.
How Does Light Energy work?
Specific wavelengths of light energy, when properly absorbed, up-regulates compromised cells. The light (photons) energy is absorbed by photoreceptors in the mitochondria and is used to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The ATP produced then stimulates various metabolic processes, which can result in the repair and regeneration of cell and tissue components. In an article, “Therapeutic Light” -by Chukuku S. Enwemeka, PT, PhD, FACSM, wrote “other reported mechanisms of light-induced beneficial effects include modulation of prostaglandin levels, alteration of somatosensory evoked potential and nerve conduction velocity, and hyperemia of treated tissues.
The resultant clinical benefits include pain relief in conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis, tendonitis, ankle sprain, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, shoulder and neck pain, arthritis, and post-herpetic neuralgia, as well as tissue repair in cases of diabetic ulcer, venous ulcer, mouth ulcer,fractures, tendon rupture, ligamentous, tear, torn cartilage, and nerve injury.”
What is Celluma?
Cellumais unique and quite unlike any other low-level light therapy device available today. Based on NASA research, Celluma delivers blue, red and near-infrared light energy simultaneously to treat a wide variety of conditions safely. Each wavelength is absorbed by different molecules that act as a signalling mechanism for different cellular processes. For example, some reduce inflammation and kill bacteria, while others enhance localised circulation.
At Elley Spa, we use the same machine to treat and improve skin conditions. LED light therapy can be combined with most treatments. After Laser Hair Removal for sooting effect, combined with Algae Facial to treat Acne skin or back facial to treat back Acne ( which many people, especially men, suffer)
Also, at Elley Spa, after Carbon Peel or Rejuvenation, LED therapy can be applied with even better results.
Clients who suffer from joint pain or lower back pain have LED therapy after their massage or after having a pedicure or manicure.
