- Celluma LED, or light emitting diode therapy, is a skincare treatment that uses red and blue light wavelengths. Red light is excellent for anti-aging while blue light therapy is great for reducing acne and acne-scarring.
- Celluma does not generate UV rays and is safe for regular use.
- NASA originally developed LED light therapy for plant growth experiments in space and later found it to have promise for human skin rejuvenation.
How Celluma Works:
There are different frequencies, or wavelengths, used with LED light treatment. These include red and blue light frequencies, which don’t contain ultraviolet rays and are readily absorbed into the skin.
Celluma Red Light
Red, or infrared, light is used for treating the epidermis, which is the outer layer of skin. When the light is applied to your skin, the epidermis absorbs it and then stimulates collagen proteins. More collagen means that your skin will look smoother and fuller, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Red LED light also reduces inflammation while improving circulation, which gives you a healthier glow. Because Celluma red light therapy increases collagen, the skin feels thicker, younger and healthier!
Celluma Blue Light
Blue LED light targets the sebaceous glands, which are also called oil glands. They’re located beneath your hair follicles. Sebaceous glands are necessary for lubricating your skin and hair so that it doesn’t dry out. However, these glands can become overactive, leading to oily skin and acne.
Blue LED light targets these oil glands and make them less active, reducing acne. Blue light can also kill acne-causing bacteria beneath the skin, which can help treat severe acne pimples, including cysts and nodules. Celluma combines blue LED light with red LED light to:
- help treat acne
- decrease scarring
- promote anti-inflammatory effects
- Celluma is FDA cleared and medically CE-marked.
- LEDs do not contain ultraviolet rays. Therefore, they’re safe for regular use.
- LED light therapy doesn’t cause burns compared to other anti-aging treatments such as chemical peels, dermabrasion, and laser therapy. It may be safe for all skin colors and types.
- You shouldn’t use LED light therapy if you take Accutane for acne or if you’re experiencing skin rashes, psoriasis or sun sensitivity.
- Side effects are rare, but may include increased inflammation, redness, and rashes.
How Often Should I Use Celluma?
LED light therapy can improve your skin over time—the recommended frequency for anti-agin and acne is at least 2 times per week for 5 weeks. You’ll need maintenance treatments to maintain your results.

What to expect after therapy
Celluma light therapy is noninvasive, so no recovery time is required. You should be able to continue with your everyday activities once your treatment is over. You may start to see minor results after your first session. Results will be more dramatic and noticeable once you’ve finished all of your treatments.
Even after you’ve achieved the recommended number of sessions, your results aren’t permanent.
As your skin cells turn over, you may lose some collagen and start to see signs of aging again. You may also start to see acne breakouts. This is why it’s recommended that you go back for maintenance treatments once or twice a month.
