Say hello to our latest treatment innovation at Winslow Skincare! The Celluma LED mask! Celluma is a medical-grade and FDA-approved light mask that helps to restore collagen levels in the skin and reduces inflammation and bacteria levels. It uses a combination of near-infrared red LED light and blue LED light.
The red LED light is ideal for lines & wrinkles, stimulating collagen production, targeting pigmentation and lack lustre skin. The blue LED is for acne, inflammation, sensitive skin, and those suffering from psoriasis, eczema, rosacea and more. We also have a pulse setting which uses a combination of the two in order to have an anti-ageing effect but also a calming one. Perfect after some of our more advanced anti-ageing treatments such as the CACI Non-Surgical Face Lift, Radio Frequency, chemical peels and more!
You can have a 30-minute stand-alone session of LED light therapy with Celluma (optimal) or if you are rushed for time then 15 minutes add-on to your treatments at Winslow is also perfect. There is no downtime or redness, it’s the perfect lunchtime treatment!
We recommend a course of two a week for 5 weeks for best results but can be used as a one-off treatment as well.
How exactly does it work? | Celluma LED Facial
The best way to describe how LED light therapy works is to compare your skin to a plant! A plant absorbs light and uses it to grow, rejuvenate and restore itself.
However, if it receives too much light then it will wither and die. Our skin is much the same. Enough of the right kind of light (red or blue LED) and it will grow, rejuvenate, and restore. Too much of the wrong kind of light (UVA, UVB or UVC) and you’ll see burning, and eventually pigmentation and sun damage on the surface of the skin.
Your skin absorbs light through your body’s ‘power plant’ cells called mitochondria. These mitochondria cells are responsible for how much light you absorb into the skin and provide the rest of your cells with energy. Therefore, when you recharge these mitochondria cells with the correct type of light (red or blue LED) you’ll see the skin start to repair, rejuvenate and restore itself. It also kicks off your fibroblast cells which are responsible for collagen and elastin growth in the skin.
Therefore when you expose your skin to the correct type and the right amount of red or blue LED light you can expect to see a reduction in lines and wrinkles, inflammation, acne scarring and an overall glow to the skin and you recharge those cells with energy!
How is it different to other LED machines? | Celluma LED Facial
So how is the Celluma LED different to the other LED machines that we’ve had in the past? First, it’s far more powerful, with medical grade bulbs and FDA approved, it’s a huge step up from our previous LED machines. Because of this, it can boast much greater results in less time. Working brilliantly on lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, inflammation, and overall sensitivity in the skin.
It’s also completely non-invasive and safe, it’s almost impossible to have any kind of reaction to the LED mask and it doesn’t even touch the surface of the skin!
What if I am claustrophobic? | Celluma LED Facial
The Celluma LED is a canopy that sits between 10-20cm above the face and is open at both ends, so even if you are claustrophobic then you still feel like you can move underneath it and are not encased within it.
What skin conditions does it treat? | Celluma LED Facial
Celluma works by stimulating your mitochondria cells which are responsible for how much energy the rest of your cells get. Because of this overall beneficial effect, LED light is fantastic for a whole range of skin conditions including:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Pigmentation and sun damage
- Acne and breakouts
- Inflammation and redness
- Dullness and sallowness in the skin
As well as much more!
With all of the above skin conditions, we recommend a minimum of 3 treatments (either 15 mins or 30 mins each) before expecting to see results.
