Celluma Light Therapy For Fertility

At MAAIM, we are dedicated to providing you with the most advanced and effective therapies available. Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT), also known as photobiomodulation (PBM) or cold laser uses light emitting diodes (LED) that apply light at specific wavelengths to obtain therapeutic effects for a variety of conditions.

LLLT or LED Therapy is safe and a non-invasive, restorative, and non-abrasive therapy. Research has shown that LLLT LED therapy can be a safe, non-invasive, and effective way to improve fertility in both men and women. The Celluma device we use in our office is FDA cleared.

The LLLT LED technology supports fertility treatments and enhances acupuncture by offering non-invasive ways to stimulate circulation, the formation of new capillaries, and drive ATP production. Your LLLT LED therapy treatments are often combined with acupuncture to provide a comprehensive approach to fertility.

Stimulates Cellular Activity

During an LLLT LED therapy session, the device emits a specific wavelength of light that penetrates the skin and stimulates cellular activity. This process promotes the release of nitric oxide, which helps to increase blood flow to the targeted areas of the body.

Aids in Blood Flow

When LLLT LED therapy causes nitric oxide increases which aids in the formation of new blood vessels. As a result, the increased vascularization leads to improved blood flow, nutrient delivery, and cellular health.

Reduces Inflammation

Inflammation is a common cause of infertility, and the LLLT LED device can help to reduce inflammation in the body. By promoting the production of anti-inflammatory cytokines, LLLT LED therapy can help to reduce inflammation and improve overall health and wellness.

Increases Collagen Production

Studies have shown that LLLT LED therapy can enhance collagen proliferation, which is crucial for the health of the ligaments that support the uterus. Collagen is an essential nutrient that contributes to the strength and integrity of these ligaments.

Balances Hormones

Hormonal imbalances can contribute to infertility, and LLLT LED therapy can help to balance hormones in the body. By stimulating the production of hormones like estrogen and progesterone, LED therapy can help to regulate the menstrual cycle, improve ovulation, and increase the chances of conception.

Increasing Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP)

ATP is produced by the mitochondria inside our cells. The mitochondria will start producing more ATP when exposed to LLLT LED therapy. This directly influences the oocyte, increasing the energy level and drastically improving the chance of conceiving,

LLLT LED For Fertility

If you’re looking to enhance the benefits of your acupuncture treatment, consider adding LLLT LED light therapy. By combining the targeted benefits of acupuncture with the overall wellness benefits of LLLT LED therapy, you can experience a more comprehensive and effective treatment.

When to add LLLT LED to your appointment:

Preparing for Egg Retrieval

The Celluma device will help support follicular growth and development.

Post Egg Retrieval

LED Therapy has been shown to reduce swelling and inflammation, which can support your body post-surgery.

Pre-Egg Transfer

We use the Celluma LED device to increase blood flow to the uterus and improve the thickness of the uterine lining.

Natural Conception

Using LED support, we will focus on boosting ATP production to bring more energy to the cells, which can increase the likelihood of a healthy pregnancy carried to term.

Beneficial Effects of LLLT LED For Fertility

Increases mitochondria function and ATP (energy) production

Regulates inflammation

Decreases damage caused by oxidative stress

Improves blood circulation which can benefit ovaries and uterine receptivity

Softens scarring and adhesions (from earlier surgeries or infections)

Decreases stress and promotes parasympathetic function

Risks / Contraindications

There are no known adverse side effects of low-light laser therapy/ LLLT when it is administered properly. However, there are several contraindications including:

Low-Light Laser Therapy (LLLT)

There is exciting research and clinical data demonstrating that LLLT (low level laser therapy) helps improve fertility in women over 35, especially women with poor egg quality and older eggs. As women age, or due to certain fertility conditions, their eggs don’t create as much ATP (the energy molecule of the body). Lower ATP means your eggs can’t develop as strongly or power the process of fertilization, implantation and pregnancy. A tremendous amount of energy within the cells is needed for follicles (eggs) to mature and for early embryos to divide and implant.

How Do Lasers Help Fertility?
LLLT benefits fertility because the rate of division and successful implantation of embryos is profoundly affected by the amount of energy they have. When eggs are developing, they use a tremendous amount of energy; and early embryo division and implantation requires lots of energy too. After 35 years, the mitochondria in follicles decreases. At age 40, nine out of 10 eggs are abnormal. In addition, older eggs are also more affected by oxidation, which can break DNA and contribute to abnormal embryo development.

A research paper on LLLT and fertility explains it this way:
“Every cell in our body, except red blood cells, run on the energy source ATP, or Adenosine Triphosphate. ATP is produced by the mitochondria inside our cells. Throughout our body, most cells have around 2,000 mitochondria. Some more, some less. A few exceptions stand out, brain cells and heart cells with around 10,000 each. But the oocyte, the human egg cell, goes way beyond that, with a whopping 600,000 mitochondria. This goes to emphasize how much energy it takes to create new life. But even with 600,000 mitochondria, when their efficiency drops with age, the result is still a rapid decline in fertility rate. This is where PBM (LLLT) comes into the picture. Numerous scientific studies have shown that when cells with a lack of energy are exposed to laser light, the mitochondria will start producing more ATP. This will directly influence the oocyte, increasing the energy level and drastically improve the chances of conceiving. Aside from egg quality issues, there are a number of complications that can impede the likelihood of getting pregnant….” (Arne Grinsted and Maja Grinsted Hillegass. “PhotoBioModulation for Infertility”).

What Does Treatment Look Like?
Optimal treatment protocol for fertility is 6 treatments between cycle day 1 to ovulation. Each session is done with 30 minutes face up.
