“The day may not be far off when most homes will have a light source (most likely a LED device) to be used for aches, pains, cuts, bruises, joints, and which can also be applied to the hair and even transcraniallyto the brain”.

Note: this is the closing comment from a collaborative study conducted by researchers at Boston’s Mass General Hospital, the Harvard School of Medicine and the Harvard-MIT Division of Health & Sciences

Think of it as a battery charger for compromisedcells . . .
  • Light source emits photons
  • Photons are absorbed in the mitochondria and cell membranes
  • Causing an elevation of ATP synthesis
  • Increased ATP causes a cascade of metabolic eventsresulting in biochemical & cellular changes…

 

Fibroblast Cells: (red, a little IR).

Produces collagen and elastin fibers in connective tissue.

Keratinocytes: (both red and IR equally).

Provides structural strength to the skin, hair and nails. Responsible for skin clarity, tone and texture.

Mast Cells: (red, near IR).

Essential for inflammatory reactions.

Neutrophil Cells: (leukocytes): (little red, mostly IR).

Are the first line of defense in the inflammatory process. Adequate numbers are important to protect the body from infection.

Macrophage Cells: (leukocytes): (red and IR).

Play a vital role in activating specific immune responses.

P. acnes bacteria: (blue)

causes bacteria to destroy itself.

“Loving my Celluma and have been experimenting with different protocols. Protocol for this young acne client was 30 minute blue LED 1 x weekly with simple cleanse and extractions for 6 tx. Then 1 x month for 2 tx (NO enzyme or chemical peels) plus home care of salicylic wash, toner, 5% BPO gel, oil-free SPF a.m. and periodic clay mask. Client also cut sugar and dairy intake. We started Feb. 22nd but, due to my husband’s illness, had only 1 appointment mid-May until our appointment last week (July 31stapprox.) at which time the “after” photo was taken. These are excellent results given we did no full facials.
