Frequently Asked Questions

Why do Celluma treatments typically last for 30 minutes while other LED light therapy devices only require 3 to 10 minutes?
Celluma treatments typically span a longer duration, for 30 minutes, in contrast to other LED devices which may necessitate only 3 to 10 minutes. This disparity arises from Celluma's capability to concurrently administer multiple wavelengths, facilitating a holistic approach to addressing various skin issues in one session.  The extended treatment duration with Celluma ensures ample exposure of the skin to specific wavelengths essential for effectively targeting the intended concerns. Moreover, this prolonged timeframe enables deeper light penetration into the skin, thereby enhancing the therapeutic outcomes.  While certain LED devices offer quicker treatment sessions, they may lack the same extensive range of wavelengths or effectiveness for addressing diverse dermatological and musculoskeletal conditions.


Why all LED light therapy devices are not the same despite their claims of emitting similar light wavelengths and achieving similar outcomes?
The precision and accuracy of LED wavelengths in light therapy devices can vary due to manufacturing tolerances, while differences in intensity and power output between LEDs of the same wavelength can impact their effectiveness for specific therapeutic applications. 

Our proprietary algorithm utilizes a proprietary algorithm to deliver the optimal combination of wavelengths and fluence, that delivers results supported by clinical studies.


Does the Celluma device emit UV light? 
No, Celluma device utilizes a combination of blue, red, and near-infrared light-emitting diodes (LEDs), with the near-infrared light being imperceptible to the human eye.

Celluma's light therapy emulates a natural photobiochemical reaction process, delivering safe, UV-free low-level light energy through FDA-cleared, high-intensity LED devices.

Is Celluma Light Therapy Safe? 
Absolutely. It's crucial to note that Celluma employs targeted light therapy, which doesn't encompass broad-spectrum light. Not all forms of light pose a risk to our skin and cells. Skin damage and the potential for skin cancer arise primarily from exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light within the spectrum. With prolonged or repeated exposure, UV light can indeed be harmful.


How often do you use Celluma to see results?
While some individuals may notice improvement after just one session, it's crucial to recognize that LED light therapy is not a one-and-done treatment. Its efficacy relies on cumulative dosing, where therapeutic effects gradually accumulate over time. The most significant benefits are typically observed when doses are administered multiple times throughout a week, leading to a sustained accumulation of therapeutic effects across separate sessions.


Do you wear clothes in Celluma light therapy treatment?
While clothing offers protection against sunlight, it also shields the skin from exposure to red and near-infrared light. For optimal results during red light therapy treatment, it's recommended to expose as much bare skin as possible. It's essential to ensure that the area you intend to treat is free from any clothing.
