LED Light Therapy Is Part Of The Skin Care Industry’s Evolution
LED Light Therapy was new to the market in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. Back then skin care customers wanted aggressive, anti-aging treatments that promised fast results. Skin care services were centered around aggressive exfoliation like microdermabrasion and chemical peels, combined with an onslaught of highly active cosmeceuticals, all promising to give the skin everything it needed to age beautifully.
Over the past 5 years, the industry’s focus has started to evolve into a more holistic understanding of skin. We’re learning that stimulating the skin’s function is key to improving skin health and thus – skin appearance. The industry is now focusing on methods of improving the basic building blocks of skin as go-to treatment options. There is a growing focus on: nutrition, use of facial massage tools, use of botani-clinical and organi-clinical ingredients, use of microcurrent and LED Light Therapy.
Just look around the industry, you see more skin care professionals focusing on treatments and products that will produce healthy skin. We’re seeing ingestibles growing in the skin care industry. Brands that use botanical ingredients and plant based stem cells are growing and it seems that every prominent esthetician is showing off their favorite microcurrent and LED Light Therapy devices. All of these options have one thing in common – they stimulate the skin’s ability to help itself by fostering the production of ATP.
This Industry Shift Creates A Need For LED Light Therapy In Every Spa
As we continue to deal with Covid in our everyday lives – adding LED Light Therapy into your skin care business has become essential.
LED Light Therapy offers your business a low touch – clinical appearance which improves consumers’ perception of your sanitation standards. This, coupled with the industry’s shift towards the improvement of skin function, is creating a need for LED Light Therapy in every treatment room more than ever before.
5 Reasons Celluma LED Light Therapy Needs To Be In Every Skin Care Business
1 Universal Skin Care Treatment
Celluma LED Light Therapy is ideal for every client, regardless of skin tone or skin issue. LED Light Therapy doesn’t focus on “correcting” a skin issue. Rather, LED Light Therapy uses light waves to penetrate the skin – prompting the skin to do its job and assist tissue repair from the inside out. This science is a basic building block of skin function and it can improve the cellular production of ATP, allowing ALL skin to function better.
Pro-Tips On Celluma LED Light Therapy As A Universal Skin Care Treatment
Here are 4 science based facts that make Celluma LED a universal skin care treatment.
1. Celluma Leverages Pulsing LED Light Therapy
Celluma LED Light Therapy utilizes a modulated pulsed algorithm which maximizes the cells ability to absorb the light energy during the treatment session. The more energy that is absorbed, the faster and better the results for your clients. Celluma is one of the few medical grade light therapy devices that includes a pulsing feature.
2. Wavelengths + Why They’re Important
Light is a form of energy that behaves like a wave and also as a stream of particles called photons. Each photon gyrates and bounces at a unique frequency and exhibits electrical and magnetic properties. As a result, their waves are called electromagnetic (EM) waves. The wavelengths that interest us in aesthetics are the ones that are capable of being absorbed by mitochondria to increase metabolic function. In the whole Electromagnetic Spectrum there is a very narrow window of wavelengths that do this. Blue, red and near-infrared wavelengths fall within the range of wavelengths that are absorbed by molecules in the mitochondria (called chromophores) to increase ATP production, especially in under-functioning cells (cells that are aged, diseased or injured). This increase in energy allows the cells to perform more optimally. Other wavelengths fall within this range too, for example, yellow, green and orange, however, these wavelengths are too short to reach the dermal layer which is why they are not used in true medical grade LED devices and which is why red and near-infrared are far preferable If you wish to see results.
3. How LED Light Therapy Impacts Skin Tissue
Specific wavelengths of light energy, when properly absorbed, up-regulates compromised cells. Basically, LED provides energy to under-functioning cells so they can perform more optimally and do the job that they were designed to do. For example, an under functioning fibroblast will now be able to generate more collagen and elastin – yay! The light (photons) energy is absorbed by photoacceptors in the mitochondria and used to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
4. Strong ATP Production Improves Function
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.”
2 Low/No Touch Skin Care Treatment
Celluma LED Light Therapy can be performed with very low client – therapist interaction. An esthetician or massage therapist can offer a treatment without ever touching the client. It’s also possible for the therapist to social distance while the treatment is being performed. Most Celluma LED Light Therapy devices come with disposable Hygiene Barriers.
A full body treatment can be performed with a Celluma DELUX, a facial treatment can be performed with the Celluma PRO. There is minimal client – therapist interaction, the entire treatment area can be disinfected and the therapeutic value of the treatment is easily explained using the valuable Results page from Celluma’s website.
Pro-Tips On Celluma LED Light Therapy As A Universal Skin Care Treatment
Here are 2 science based facts that make Celluma LED a universal skin care treatment.
1. Celluma Is Perfectly Designed For Low Touch Maximum Effectiveness
Celluma devices are designed to lay directly on, or in close proximity to the treatment area, , and can be molded to fit the client as needed. This means that Celluma can easily and effectively treat any part of the body, not just the face. No other in-treatment LED Light Therapy device offers this versatility.
2. Celluma Has Perfect Power Output For LED Light Therapy Skin Care Treatmet
Only Celluma can do this because they have established the perfect power output of an LED Light Therapy device – which matches the skin’s ability to absorb the power! Cells optimally absorb light energy between 2 – 10 j/cm2 (joules per cm squared). Less than 2 is not effective and over 10 may cause damage.
3 Treat The Whole Body
The line of Celluma LED Light Therapy devices allows you to think “Outside Of The Box” or in the case of an esthetician, “Outside Of The Face”. Many clients who come to an esthetician for skin care treatments are ideal candidates for LED Light Therapy treatments on many other parts of the body.
Pro-Tips On Celluma LED Light Therapy On The Whole Body
Here are 3 creative ways Celluma LED can be used in the spa industry.
1. Celluma Helps Estheticians Treat The Whole Body
Celluma Helps Estheticians Treat The Whole Body
This is where Celluma’s uniqueness shines (pun very much intended)! Celluma devices are designed so that the same Celluma PRO or Celluma SKIN used to treat the face – can also be used to to offer anti-aging hand treatments, during a facial treatment.
You can also offer to help treat hand, knee or foot pain (within the scope of your license of course) from injury or ongoing issues like arthritis with your Celluma PRO during a facial treatment.
If you only do a modest upcharge of $10 per treatment and do that 5 times a day, that is an additional $50 a day.
2. Celluma Helps Massage Therapists Treat The Face
With Celluma LED Light Therapy devices, the Celluma PRO or Celluma HOME that a massage therapist uses in their practice to help clients alleviate pain can also multi-task as a skin care treatment while a client receives a massage or reflexology treatment. If the client understands the science of LED Light Therapy for pain management, helping them understand its impact on the skin can help improve sales by offering to treat their face.
3. Celluma Helps Nail Technicians, Lash Artists, Permanent Makeup Artists Improve Service Levels
Now any spa professional can incorporate Celluma LED Light Therapy into their business. It’s ideal for services such as nails, lashes and permanent make up where clients have a lot of non-moving time while being treated. Adding anti-aging LED Light Therapy hand treatments, and pain relief foot treatments during these services is a great way to add revenue.
4 Produces Retail Sales
During quarantine one thing that everyone learned is how important it is to have strong retail sales. Retail sales create a strong revenue and profit opportunity for your business as well as create a fierce customer loyalty. Celluma LED Light Therapy offers a Reseller Program that allows approved businesses to sell the complete line of Celluma devices to consumers for home use.
This is especially important when showcasing the stunning Celluma Results photos! Clients who use Celluma multiple times per week for several weeks experience exceptional results. Also, clients who use Celluma for pain management will be able find relief on a regular basis if they have a device at home.
5 Portable Design Technology
Celluma’s design gives it so many benefits over and above other brands. Celluma’s design is ideal for delivery of the perfect power level for optimal absorption of the energy by the cells. Celluma is also incredibly versatile, allowing a therapist to use the same device on different areas of the body for multiple disorders all within the same treatment time.
Now, with the launch of the new Celluma iPRO, all of that versatility is now portable! No need to worry about being plugged in. Treat anywhere! Move the Celluma iPRO from station to station in a nail salon. You can keep the same Celluma iPRO with the client as they move from a facial to a massage.
You can see how Celluma LED Light Therapy is designed for both effectiveness, but also maximum efficiency in today’s spa and skin care world. Adding Celluma to any spa or skin care practice shows a commitment to skin health and achieving results by allowing the skin to perform at its own maximum output!
