Celluma LED Light Therapy

Updated: Dec 7, 2021

The breakthrough salon treatment that you can use in your own home. It’s out of this world.

Are you looking for a treatment that combats the signs of ageing? Stimulates cell renewal, increases circulation, improves skin texture and firmness?

Or a treatment that clears up acne?

Perhaps a treatment that relieves musculoskeletal pain and heals injuries?

I know it sounds too good to be true, but Celluma LED Light Therapy can do all this and more. Let’s find out how.

As a result of ageing, skin conditions or trauma, healthy skin cells become compromised and cannot renew themselves normally. Celluma LED Light Therapy trigger’s your body’s natural cell processes to accelerate rejuvenation and repair, restoring your skin’s radiance and healing injuries. But Celluma’s benefits don’t stop there.

Based on years of extensive research, the FDA has approved Celluma LED light therapy for therapeutic use. Celluma also complies with EU safety, health and environmental regulations (CE mark) and has been scientifically proven to:

  • Rejuvenate skin (stimulating collagen production and improving skin texture)

  • Reduce sun damage (including pigment lesions)

  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles

  • Improve localised blood flow/circulation

  • Treat rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis

  • Improve sensitive/inflammatory skin conditions

  • Treat mild to moderate acne (teenage and adult)

  • Reduce scarring

  • Manage minor acute and chronic aches and pains (joints and muscles)

  • Reduce pain and stiffness associated with arthritis

  • Help heal wounds

So how does Celluma LED work? Let’s take a more detailed look.

During NASA’s initial research with LED lights, back in 1993, scientists made an accidental discovery that has profound implications for human health. While experimenting with red LED light for growing plants in space, scientists discovered that their skin lesions began to heal faster because of exposure to the light. Since then, scientists have investigated the benefits of different wavelengths of light on various aspects of human health.

Low-level-light therapy is based on Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology. It is the application of light energy at different wavelengths to the body for therapeutic benefits.

The light energy promotes a natural photo-biochemical reaction in our cells, similar to the process of plant photosynthesis, increasing cell metabolism, accelerating the repair and replenishment of damaged skin cells, and stimulating collagen production — the foundation of healthy, smooth skin.

Thus, LED light therapy can help even out skin texture and improve skin firmness and resilience. It also increases lymphatic system activity, restores skin’s natural cellular activity, and reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and superficial hyperpigmentation.

The wavelength (and hence the colour) of the light determine how far into your skin the light will penetrate and the benefits you will experience.

Blue light has the shortest wavelength of the three light modes and penetrates the least. Thus, blue light is most beneficial in the treatment of acne. It has powerful antibacterial properties, killing bacteria close to and on the surface of the skin. Blue light treats acne without irritation, reduces oil production, prevents future breakout and offers a UV-free alternative for the treatment of eczema and psoriasis.

Red light penetrates a little further into the skin and can stimulate natural hydration, reduce redness and inflammation, shrink the appearance of pores, regulate oil production, improve circulation, accelerate skin repair and is a medically approved treatment for rosacea.

Near-infrared light (not visible to the naked eye) is the most deeply absorbed of the three light wavelengths. It increases cell permeability and absorption, smooths fine lines and wrinkles, improves elasticity, reduces pain and inflammation, accelerates wound healing and heals cystic acne.

What’s the difference between Celluma LED, IPL and Laser?

Laser and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) both work on the principle of photothermolysis. Highly concentrated energy as light passes through the skin. It converts to heat energy in the pigmentation of the skin or hair. This heat energy destroys the hair follicle (in hair removal), surface capillaries (in thread vein removal), or areas of hyperpigmentation. IPL and Laser can both be focussed on small treatment areas.

A laser emits one wavelength of light, whereas IPL uses intense light pulses with a broad range of wavelengths. Thus, IPL can be adjusted, tailoring the wavelengths of light to the treated condition and your natural skin tone.

You can learn more about IPL on our treatment page or read our IPL hair removal blog.

Celluma is a low-level-light therapy. The LED device delivers only safe wavelengths of light, blue, red and near-infrared (not visible to the naked eye). There are no potentially harmful wavelengths (e.g. UV). In addition, unlike laser treatment, Celluma generates negligible amounts of heat energy and thus is very low risk. The Celluma panel also allows a wider area to be treated at once.

The beauty of Celluma is that there are no special precautions that you need to follow before or after treatment. There is no recovery time, and you can resume normal activities straight after treatment.


Here at Beauty Essence, in the vibrant City of London, we use the Celluma PRO 3 mode LED Light Therapy panel. The Celluma PRO can deliver blue, red and near-infrared light (hence the three modes). Ideally sized for over the face, the Celluma PRO can be positioned easily over any part of the body, including the spine, hip or shoulder complexes, feet, knees, and more.

We offer several different salon treatment sessions:

  • Celluma LED Aches, Pains, Injuries, Healing

  • Celluma LED Acne Facial

  • Celluma LED Anti-Ageing, Pigment & Scar Healing Facial

  • Celluma LED Express Facial

Celluma LED treatment is for ALL skin types and is non-ablative, non-invasive, PAINLESS, and as we’ve mentioned above, requires absolutely no recovery time. You can return to regular activity immediately after the treatment, including wearing makeup.

A course of treatment offers corrective and long-lasting results. However, you’ll be able to see a difference after the first session. Light therapy is also particularly relaxing, so you’ll leave feeling refreshed.


If you love Celluma LED Light Therapy as much as we do, you might be considering making it part of your daily routine. But instead of taking time to come to the salon, you might want to naturally relieve pain, treat acne, and reduce signs of ageing in the comfort of your home. Have you thought about renting or buying Celluma LED?

‘I use Celluma LED every day, and I love the results.’

It has become part of my life. I use it for rejuvenating the skin on my face, neck and décolletage, taking full advantage of its anti-ageing effects. I’ve also used the panel to treat my own sports injuries, aches and pain – although I’m not sure that falling off my son’s electric scooter can be described as a sport (luckily, no one caught it on video). But candid moments aside, Celluma has worked wonders on my injured hand and knee. I was amazed at how quickly my relatively deep wounds healed without scarring.

I’ve also seen first-hand how effective Celluma is at treating sprains and strains, tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome. Also, back pains, sciatica and sore bodies after gym sessions.

At home, you don’t need to find time for an appointment. You can easily treat most injuries while watching TV or working on your laptop. And if you’re using it on your face, why not lie back and relax for a while – we all deserve a little break.

Celluma is stand-free, hands-free, lightweight and portable, making it ideal for travel. And to make life easy, all Celluma devices come with an International Celluma Adapter Kit. So, you won’t have to miss a day of your holiday searching for the correct plug fitting.

If you’re interested in learning more about using Celluma LED at home, I’ve put some videos on our Facebook page.
