Cleared by the FDA for pain management and skin care, Celluma uses light energy to improve cellular health by accelerating the repair and replenishment of compromised tissue cells. While similar devices on the market claim to do the same, they often require you to buy multiple panels and accessories in order to treat specific conditions or accommodate different parts of the body. Alternatively, Celluma offers a convenient solution in a versatile, all-in-one system. We do home health service calls, equipment for rent or to purchase.
Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy is the application of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. The energy is used to improve cellular performance. Phototherapy is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties and has a variety of applications across many medical fields. Research has shown that phototherapy 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.
Celluma is unique and quite unlike any other 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.
How Does Light Energy work?
In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue, high intensity light emitting diodes (LEDs) utilizing specific, proven wavelengths of light can trigger a natural biostimulatory effect in human tissue. Research has shown that phototherapy can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone, texture and clarity, as well as ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and arthritis. Research indicates that cells absorb particles of light (photons) and transform their energy into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the form of energy that cells utilize. The resulting elevation of ATP is then used to power metabolic processes; synthesize DNA, RNA, proteins, enzymes, and other products needed to repair or regenerate cell components; foster mitosis or cell proliferation; and restore homeostasis. Simply put, the LED light source provides compromised cells with added energy so the cells performance is enhanced. For example, fibroblast cells will increase collagen and elastic production in connective tissue.
Specific wavelengths of light energy, when properly absorbed, up-regulates compromised cells. The light (photons) energy is absorbed by photoacceptors in the mitochondria and used to create adenosine triphosphate (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.
Dr. Anne Dunev,
”Every acne patient we have treated has seen results with the first Celluma acne treatment and signed up for a package, or bought the Celluma to use at home. I have seen other blue light treatments, but nothing has given results like this with the first treatment. Here is what one patient with chronic cystic acne for years emailed, "I loved the light! I love how my skin feels/looks. The redness has subsided a bit and my skin (where it's clear) feels so smooth.” Dietary changes certainly help but take time and it is sometimes hard to get patient compliance, especially with teenagers. The Celluma offers a way for the patient to see real results immediately, and these patients refer others.”

“Celluma is an integral component of NYDG signature treatments like the Triad and Runway Facials which employ the regenerative and lifting effects of multi-layered energy waves and technologies in single sessions. The biophotonic waves of Celluma are implemented as the final step to accelerate recovery by providing the cells with the energy to heal from within. Quite often, I recommend the device as an ongoing maintenance treatment at home to further optimize results”.

“I have been using my Celluma as a recovery for my legs after each 5-hour shift during the Race Across America! I cover both of my quads and do 30 minutes of light therapy. I then do 30 minutes of light therapy on my hamstrings. By that time I am usually asleep… . I also have been using the Celluma as a warm up for my legs, 30 minutes of light therapy for my quads is a great warm up before getting on the bike and is a very good way get ready to go right into a hard workout. Also, I have started to use the Celluma for my aches and pains on sore shoulder that has been bothering me for many years. I began to use the light therapy to treat it and I am seeing some pain relief right away. I truly have become a fan of the Celluma and use it almost daily. Thanks again for this awesome Celluma!”
