Celluma red light therapy benefits
Red light therapy benefits are extensive. Experience faster and more effective healing with the natural power of red light therapy. Clinical studies have shown that this innovative treatment is a safe and reliable way to relieve pain and strain after surgery, allowing you to get back to the activities you love sooner.
At Essential Feeling we use this as an optional add on to our post surgery aftercare treatments. So for instance, if you’re having an MLD massage then you can choose to add this on for improved wound healing. We lay out some of the extensive research about how this works and why we believe so strongly in it below.
Alternatively if you’d just like to have a session on your face to improve your skin tone and texture while we work the rest of your body, it’s also a great feel good therapy with lasting results.

Questions & Answers
Research recovering from surgery
In one inspiring study looking at red light therapy benefits, 90 patients recovering from sternum surgery were randomly assigned to receive red light therapy or traditional treatment. The results were truly remarkable:
Patients who received red light therapy reported less pain than those who did not.
After just one month of treatment, nearly every patient experienced little to no coughing pain.
Red light therapy reduced incision bleeding and prevented wound ruptures.
Patients who received red light therapy experienced fewer complications and less excess blood.
These incredible clinical findings build on years of successful lab work, which has demonstrated the potent anti-inflammatory effects of red light therapy on wound healing. With this breakthrough technology, you can heal faster, stronger, and with greater confidence.
Healing from plastic surgery can be a challenging journey, but with the power of red light therapy benefits, you can recover with ease and grace. This incredible natural pain and inflammation reliever works wonders for all kinds of post-op environments, providing relief when you need it most.
Red light therapy is the way to go!
What is the Celluma LED technology that you use?
Discover the benefits of LED light therapy for wound healing with the Celluma light therapy treatment specifically designed to effectively treat dermal wounds.
Research conducted at the Beckman LASER Institute at the University of California has clinically proven that the Celluma device is effective in speeding up the rate of wound closure. The results showed that Celluma outperformed cold LASERs with similar optical parameters.
The device is medically CE-Marked in Europe and is classified as a Class 11A medical device in the European Union. It has been approved by the FDA for all indications-for-use, including Dermal Wound Healing. Celluma LED therapy is particularly useful in enhancing the healing process of incisions and non-healing wounds following surgery. It helps reduce patient recovery time, fight infection, and ultimately increase overall patient satisfaction.
Why is this suitable for me after surgery?
Red light therapy has been scientifically proven to offer numerous benefits such as faster tissue repair, reduction in wound size, and quicker wound closure.
This therapy can also alleviate pain during the healing process. The Celluma device is specifically designed to promote dermal wound healing, focusing on treating surface wounds up to 2mm deep, including normal, post-surgical, and chronic wounds such as diabetic ulcers.
Low-level light therapy is a proven method to reduce recovery time, alleviate discomfort, and improve overall outcomes for patients. It is especially beneficial for post-surgical and ablative procedures. Phototherapy has been found to speed up tissue repair, decrease wound size, and promote the healing of redness and scarring. Pre-surgery phototherapy can help reduce the incidence of hypertrophic scars and keloids. Post-surgery, phototherapy can activate fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin, stimulate keratinocytes for skin strength, prevent post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and reduce inflammation and infection. Additionally, professional grade LED light therapy can help lower the presence of P-acne bacteria, which can cause post-operative infections in shoulder surgery.

More about LED light therapy & wound healing
Low Level LightCelluma is an LED light therapy that has been proven to be effective in wound healing. In a research study conducted at the Beckman LASER Institute at the University of California, Celluma was found to be just as effective, if not better, than cold LASERs with similar optical parameters in speeding up the rate of wound closure.
Celluma is medically certified as a Class 11A medical device in the European Union and has been granted FDA approval for all indications-for-use, including Dermal Wound Healing. It is especially useful after surgery to improve the healing of incisions or non-healing wounds. By reducing patient downtime, fighting infection, and increasing overall patient satisfaction, Celluma LED therapy is a promising solution for wound healing.
More about NASA
LLLT or LED therapy was developed by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center to address health risks faced by astronauts during long-term space flight. This therapy uses LED technology to deliver light energy deep into the body, aiding in wound healing and tissue growth. Numerous clinical studies, articles, and peer-reviewed literature have demonstrated the therapeutic benefits of LLLT. Its mechanism of action involves cellular absorption of photons, which results in increased production of ATP, the energy cells use to fuel metabolic processes like DNA synthesis, protein synthesis, and enzyme production necessary for cell repair and regeneration.
Pre & Post surgery
Low-level light therapy is a highly effective method that has been proven to reduce recovery time, relieve discomfort, and improve overall outcomes for patients. This type of therapy is especially beneficial for individuals who have undergone post-surgical or ablative procedures.
Phototherapy has been found to accelerate tissue repair, decrease wound size, and promote the healing of redness and scarring.
Prior to surgery, phototherapy can assist in reducing the occurrence of hypertrophic scars and keloids.
After surgery, phototherapy can activate fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin, stimulate keratinocytes for skin strength, prevent post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and decrease inflammation and infection.
Additionally, professional grade LED light therapy can assist in reducing the presence of P-acne bacteria which can cause post-operative infections in shoulder surgery.
