Enhance Fertility with LED Therapy and Celluma Device at The Nest Chicago
The only FDA-approved LED medical device is at The Nest
At The Nest Chicago, we are dedicated to providing you with the most advanced and effective therapies available to help you achieve your dream of starting a family.
The Celluma is cutting-edge LED technology that supports fertility treatments by offering non-invasive ways to stimulate circulation, the formation of new capillaries, and drive ATP production.
LED Therapy is safe and a non-invasive, restorative, and non-abrasive therapy.
Research has shown that LED therapy can be a safe, non-invasive, and effective way to improve fertility in both men and women.
The Celluma device uses low-level light therapy to stimulate cellular activity and promote healing and regeneration in the body, targeting specific areas of the body to increase blood flow, reduce inflammation, and improve overall health and wellness.
How LED Therapy Enhances Fertility
LED Therapy stimulates cellular activity, reduces inflammation, and balances hormones
During an LED therapy session, the Celluma 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.
Inflammation is a common cause of infertility, and the Celluma device can help to reduce inflammation in the body. By promoting the production of anti-inflammatory cytokines, LED therapy can help to reduce inflammation and improve overall health and wellness.
Hormonal imbalances can contribute to infertility, and 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.
When 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.
Studies have shown that 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.

When to add a Celluma Treatment 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
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.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Celluma different than the LED mask I bought on Amazon?
Yes, because of the level of light delivered. LED masks typically deliver light at 600 nanometers, while the Celluma delivers light at a wavelength of up to 840 nanometers, which is capable of penetrating 2.5 centimeters below the subcutaneous level of the skin where therapeutic results occur. This light penetrates the mitochondria of cells, promoting cellular repair, regeneration, detoxification, and blood flow. The increase in capillary function leads to increased vascularization and collagen production, improving egg quality and quantity, as well as the uterine lining.
How does LED light increase egg production?
LED light increases egg production by bringing blood flow and increasing capillary function, generating cells and growth.
How long does it take to see results from LED therapy specifically for assisted reproductive therapy?
The results of LED therapy for assisted reproductive therapy can be seen in as little as two treatments. In one patient, we saw follicles go from from seven to 17. Originally, the smallest was at 6 and the largest at 14. After using the LED device only twice, we saw the smallest go up to 9.3 and the largest go up to 21.3. This increase in follicle count is beneficial for those with low AMH or low egg quality due to pre-existing conditions such as inflammation. It is recommended to work with LED therapy even before IVF drugs or IUI, because you're preparing the body for the long haul. LED therapy has been found to be effective in producing consistent pregnancies with healthy beta hCG levels. The LED therapy also leads to improved blood flow, promoting sustained pregnancy.
Does red light therapy increase progesterone?
Early research shows promising effects of red light therapy on balancing sex hormones, providing an anti-inflammatory response, and promoting thyroid and sex hormone production.
How often should I do LED therapy?
The frequency of LED therapy sessions depends on the patient, with some requiring twice-weekly acupuncture and Celluma sessions during IUI/IVF/frozen embryo transfer. However, the frequency can be adjusted based on the patient's individual needs, such as stress, lifestyle, and diet.
Will I feel anything when I sit under the Celluma?
No, there is little or no sensation, Celluma helps tissue heal naturally from the inside out. Afterwards you should feel rejuvenation and experience less pain, but there's not warmth like a tanning bed would have.
