June is Acne Awareness Month
For most people, acne is an inherited condition of the pores. When someone is prone to acne, their pores clog with dead skin cells much faster than normal. Healthy pores shed about one layer of dead skin cells per day inside the pore.
Acne-prone pores shed up to five layers of dead skin cells per day. The body just can’t keep up with keeping the pore clear. Technically, this is called “retention hyperkeratosis” — dead skin cells shedding more quickly than the pore can expel them. As the dead skin cells begin to accumulate inside the pore, the cells become sticky and get stuck inside the pore and form a plug. Medically, this is called a “microcomedone” – essentially the precursor to all acne. As you can see in this picture, there are more dead skin cells shedding inside the pore.

I'm always on the lookout for treatments and products that will help my skin care clients achieve radiant skin without resorting to invasive procedures that are costly and require a lot of downtime or prescription topical or oral medications that can have serious side effects.
I started hearing a lot about LED Light Therapy as a tool to fight both Acne and Aging. I spoke with other Estheticians who have used this modality on their clients and saw fantastic results. So a little over a year ago, I dipped my toe in to the LED pond by purchasing a small hand held device and tried it on myself, my son and a few clients. I'll be honest, I wasn't terribly impressed with the results from this tiny (and cheap) unit. I put the device in the drawer and kept looking around for an alternative.
Months passed and I was still hearing that my fellow Skin Care Specialists were getting these great results from doing a series of LED treatments on their clients. They posted before and after pictures showing clients with Grade 2 and 3 Acne with skin that was 70 - 80% clear after 4 to 6 weeks. There were pictures of clients in their 50's and 60's who showed a marked reduction in lines and wrinkles as well as an increase in plumpness and firmness in their skin.
What was I missing? I didn't see results like that at all when I conducted my very unscientific trial with my cheap handheld device. Maybe it wasn't that LED light therapy didn't work. Maybe it was my bottom of the range tool that didn't work.
I asked them what brand LED device they were using. The overwhelming majority of Estheticians said Celluma!!
The Celluma LED Panel uses Space Age technology. No, that is not a joke. NASA was looking into technologies to help astronauts with wound healing while on long-term space flights. NASA found that using LED technology could deliver "light deep into tissues of the body to promote wound healing and human tissue growth". (read more about it here)
BioPhotas, the creator of the Celluma LED Panel, has this to say about LED Therapy.
"Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy is the application of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. The energy is used to improve cellular performance. Phototherapy is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties and has a variety of applications across many medical fields. Research has shown that phototherapy can: increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone, texture and clarity, ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm and arthritis."
Celluma is FDA cleared to treat: Wrinkles, Inflammatory Acne Vulgaris, Diminished Local Blood Circulation, Muscle & Joint Stiffness, Muscle Tissue Tension, Muscle & Joint Pain, Muscle Spasm, and Arthritis."
You can schedule a single treatment, add the LED Panel on to your next facial or massage or purchase a series of treatments. You'll experience the best results with a series of treatments, scheduled once or twice per week.
