Sponsored news: Celluma’s top 3 tips for selecting the right LED device
The science behind LED light therapy is well documented and the technology has continued to evolve, making devices even more affordable.
Based on the science, there are established guidelines which can help you make an informed buying decision.
Tip 1 – Credentials are important
First, choose a light therapy devise that is medically credentialed. This ensures the devise has been reviewed for both efficacy and safety by the appropriate regulatory authorities. The cleared indications-for-use should be relevant to the conditions you wish to address.
Tip 2 – Parameters for effective outcomes
Look for an efficient, multi-purpose light therapy device that can address a variety of skin and health conditions in a single devise, minimizing your investment and requiring minimal storage space.
Choose a devise emitting evidence-based wavelengths (blue, red and near-infrared), widely shown to increase ATP production in cells compromised due to ageing, illness, disease or poor lifestyle choices. Blue light addresses acne issues, while red and near-infrared decrease inflammation and increase micro-circulation to bring more oxygen and nutrients to the area.
Choose a devise that contours as closely as possible to the treatment area for optimal energy absorption. Laws of optical physics have established that the closer the light therapy devise is positioned to the skin, the more energy absorbed.
Tip 3 – Correct energy dose
The beneficial effects of light therapy require a specific energy dose to be available for absorption by the tissue. The correct parameters will result in processes known to enhance wound healing, reduce pain, and improve skin health, among other benefits. The acceptable range of energy available for absorption at or close to the surface of the skin for an effective light therapy devise should be in the range of 2-10 J/cm2. Delivering the light energy in a pulsed manner has been shown in the clinical literature to enhance the cell’s ability to absorb more energy over the treatment period.
Understanding the science and using these tips can help you yield a quick return on investment, optimise client outcomes, increase referrals and enhance your bottom line through increased services and sales. The Celluma series of light therapy devices have the credentials, the parameters for effective outcomes, and the correct energy dose to give you the results you and your clients expect.
