An Introduction to Celluma LED Therapy

By Zoe Greenwood on March 23, 2022

I have offered Celluma LED Therapy for over 7 years now and I am a huge fan of it. Not only is it results-driven and non-invasive, but it’s also incredibly relaxing too, what’s not to love?

As with all the treatments I offer, I wanted to further my education in it and last year I decided to undertake the next level of training meaning I am now qualified to level 4 in LED therapy. This means I have an in-depth understanding of how LED works and welcome any questions you may have.

I wanted to introduce you to this fantastic treatment as it is a wonderful addition to all facial treatments, it can be included in my signature facials, added on to a chemical peel and is included as standard in my micro-needling.

What is Celluma LED Therapy?

Celluma is the only all-in-one LED light therapy device designed to manage a variety of pain and skin conditions. Light therapy, also known as phototherapy or low-level light therapy, is the application of specific wavelengths of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits for a variety of conditions including skin, pain and hair restoration.

Phototherapy, or LED therapy, has been widely researched and is supported by thousands of peer-reviewed and published clinical research papers from prestigious institutions around the world.

Celluma light therapy is a quick, pain-free procedure that entails no recovery time. Within a few treatment sessions, many patients experience dramatic results, and their skin often continues to improve over time.

How does it work?

In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into energy, high-intensity light-emitting diodes (LEDs) utilising specific, proven wavelengths of light can trigger a natural bio stimulatory effect in human tissue. Research has shown that light-emitting diode (LED), or phototherapy can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve acne-prone skin, skin tone, texture and clarity, decrease under-eye wrinkles as well as ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and pain associated with arthritis.

The most important part in choosing an LED treatment is to understand that only specific wavelengths and specific light colours create the desired results which is where in-clinic devices differ so much to those devices available for home use.

There is no clinical, peer-reviewed evidence to suggest that colours other than red, blue and infra-red at specific wavelengths have positive effects on the skin so whether you’re investing for home use or looking at in-salon use ensure you know what you’re looking for or that your therapist can answer these questions.

What do I use it for?

I use Celluma LED Therapy to help my clients with skin complaints such as:

  • Skin Rejuvenation
  • Sun Damage
  • Acne and Problem Skin
  • Rosacea and Redness
  • Scarring
  • Eczema, dermatitis and Psoriasis

What different types are there?

LED Red:

Excellent for anti-ageing and to accelerate healing.

Scientifically proven to boost collagen and elastin production by stimulating fibroblasts, evens out skin tone and texture, soothes redness and promotes radiance. Its low-level light therapy is a safe, effective and convenient way to achieve a healthy, youthful glow in a natural, non-toxic, non-invasive manner.

LED Blue:

Excellent for acne-prone skin.

Blue light is calming on the skin and helps to improve skin clarity. It is also a powerful antibacterial treatment that treats acne, normalises oil production and works to destroy acne-causing bacteria which prevent future breakouts before they happen, all without abrasive chemicals, harmful UV rays.

What are the benefits?


Celluma light therapy will reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of ageing and can be used on the face and neck.

Tackling Acne

It is also a powerful antibacterial treatment that treats acne, normalises oil production and works to destroy acne-causing bacteria which prevent future breakouts before they happen, all without abrasive chemicals, harmful UV rays.

What to expect at my appointment?

Celluma is a pain-free, results-driven yet relaxing treatment for many. It is a lightweight canopy that sits in close proximity to your skin across the face and neck and emits a bright pulsing light, not too dissimilar to laying on a sunny beach on foreign shores except that this is repairing the damage that sunlight has likely caused 😉

What else should I know?

Treatment time – 15-30 minutes
Downtime – None
Course recommendation – Course of 5, two appointments per week to start with
Price - £40 per session or £340 for a course of 10

Celluma can be undertaken as a standalone course and is recommended 2 x per week for a minimum of 5 weeks depending on your concern but I favour adding it onto other modalities for exceptional results.
