Does LED Light Therapy Actually Improve Your Skin?


LED light therapy promises to improve acne, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and fine lines. A lofty goal, right? We can feel your skepticism; we felt it too. Until we tried it.

Breaking it down, LED stands for light-emitting diode. According to Celluma’s website – the brand of light panel we have - LEDs utilize, “specific, proven wavelengths of light… [to] increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone, texture and clarity,” among other uses.

We sat down with Indulge esthetician Kari to learn more.

Is it safe? YES! Celluma LED light therapy is safe, clinically proven and FDA cleared. 

So, what’s the treatment experience like? Celluma is a non-invasive treatment and is as easy as taking a nap (and many clients do!). There’s zero pain and the only thing clients might feel is a gentle warmth emitting from the panel. Treatments typically last between 15-45 minutes, but it’s customized to meet a client’s unique needs.

How long has it been at Indulge? Celluma LED light therapy hit the Indulge treatment room just about a month ago. Already, we’ve had a lot of clients express interest, see results and come back for more!

Does the Celluma LED panel work differently to treat different symptoms? Yes. The blue light is primarily used for acne, reducing inflammation and serving as an antibacterial treatment. The red light promotes collagen production, helping to smooth out fine lines.

What results are you seeing so far? Before we even got the Celluma LED panel in, I’d already started recommending it to a few of my clients. One particular client who suffers with stubborn acne was an early adopter and looked forward to trying it out. She’s already seen noticeable improvements in active breakouts, skin tone and collagen production.

What’s different about LED light therapy from other therapies you use? We’re using LED light therapy to compliment other interventions including peels and facials. Even as a standalone treatment though, LED light therapy is a great non-invasive solution to address common skin concerns.
