*What is Light Therapy?
Light Emitting Diode (LED) photo therapy is the application of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. The energy is used to improve cellular performance. Photo therapy is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties and has a variety of applications across many medical fields. Research has shown that photo therapy 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. May be used in conjunction with facials, waxing and massages.
How Does Light Energy work?
Specific wavelengths of light energy, when properly absorbed, up-regulates compromised cells. The light(photons) energy is absorbed by photoacceptorsin the mitochondria and used to create adenosinetriphosphate (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, he 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, and 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?
Celluma is 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 safely treat a wide variety of conditions. Each wavelength is absorbed by different molecules that act as a signaling mechanism for different cellular processes. For example, some reduce inflammation and some kill bacteria, while others enhance localized circulation
Women who are pregnant should consult their physician before beginning LED light therapy treatments.
Clients with Epilepsy should consult their physician before beginning LED light therapy treatments.
You must wait five days after Botox or cosmetic fillers.
Some Thyroid Conditions.
Cautions with medications because of light sensitivity:
Chlorpromazine (Anti-psychotic), also known as Thorazine, Chlorpromazine HcL, Sonazine. You can be treated if the medication has not been taken within the last eight days.
Griseofulvin (Anti-Fungal), also known as Grifulvin V, Fulvicin P/G, Gris-Peg. You can be treated if the medication has not been taken within the last five days.
Isotretinoin (Anti-Acne), also known as Accutane. You can be treated if the medication has not been taken within the last six months.
Tetracycline’s (antibiotic) also known as Helidac, Terra-Cortril, Terramycin, Sumycin, Tetracycline HcL, Bristacycline, Achromycin V, Actisite, Tetrex, Doxycycline, Ciprofloxacin. You can be treated if the medication has not been taken within the last five days.
Tretinoin (Anti-Acne), also known as Retin-A, Renova, Atralin, among others. You can be treated if Tretinoin is used only at night.
Methotrexate (Anti-Arthritis & Anti-Cancer), also known as Methotrexate Sodium, PF & LPF, Mexate-AQ, Folex, Trexall. You can be treated if the medicine has not been taken within the last three days.
Amiodarone (Anti-Arrythmic), also known as Amiodarone Codarone x, Pacerone. Treatment can be administered only with your physician’s written permission.
