What is LED Light Therapy?

Light-emitting diode (LED) light therapy with Celluma® uses blue or red wavelengths of light. It can also use a combination of the two. These wavelengths use no ultraviolet (UV) light, so you avoid exposure to any harmful rays. LED light therapy makes an excellent choice for people who want to see improvements in their skin without the side effects like redness or soreness. 

How Does LED Light Therapy Work?

This gentle treatment uses rays of light that harmlessly enter the skin. This feels no different from someone shining an ordinary LED light on your skin. Red light works to improve signs of aging and sun damage. Blue light can calm inflammation.

Red light works to trigger faster cell turnover and enhance collagen development. This new collagen can smooth out lines and wrinkles, soften and firm the skin, and reduce other signs of aging. Over time, the body will continue to build collagen so you continue to see improvements. You will see firmer, healthier-looking skin that looks better after each treatment.  

Blue light, typically used to treat acne, reduces the activity of the sebaceous glands, leading to decreased oil production. It also kills bacteria and calms inflammation. This decreases redness, swelling, and irritation, lessening the risk of acne scars. You can start seeing calmer, more even skin within just a few treatments. 

What Does LED Light Therapy Treat?

LED light therapy with Celluma® can improve many skin conditions and concerns with none of the discomfort or recovery time of other treatments. This therapy can improve or treat:

  • Acne breakouts
  • Enlarged pores
  • Excess oil
  • Acne bacteria
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Skin dullness
  • Acne scarring
  • Signs of sun damage
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Inflammation


LED light therapy has also demonstrated benefits in helping tissue heal. It can be used to promote the healing of injured muscles and joints. It can also be used with other facial rejuvenation treatments to shorten the healing time. Its boost to collagen development can improve the results of many other treatments without adding any downtime.

How Much is LED Light Therapy?

Costs for treatments can vary widely between different locations and providers. According to RealSelf, the average LED light therapy cost is $250. Your cost will depend on how many treatments you need to achieve your desired results. You can expect to need occasional maintenance treatments to make sure your results last.

This may take up to ten weeks, depending on your starting point and how much improvement you want to see. . Monthly touch-up sessions can maintain your results, keeping acne under control or keeping your skin looking youthful and smooth. 

Is There Any Downtime With LED Light Therapy?

LED light therapy is so gentle that you will not need any downtime. The LED light causes no redness or irritation to the skin. When other treatments say they require no downtime, you may still not want to go back to work with a red face. LED light therapy with Celluma® leaves your skin looking untouched.
