Q. How long will I have to use an LED light before I see results? A. Some people see results in as little as a few days and others take a month or two to notice a change. Various physical conditions, age, skin condition, diet, alcohol consumption, prescription drug usage, smoking, exercise, and other factors inf. luence the rate of improvement. The effects of LED light are often subtle at first, since unlike lasers, peels and other ablative treatments, LED light does not damage the skin to force it to regenerate. Your results will improve the longer you use the light; so though you should see improvement in 60 days, you should see a much more significant change after you’ve been using it for 3 months..
Q. How do infrared LED lights for home use compare to the Photo Rejuvenation light treatments done in spas and salons.
A. The concept and technology are the same. The difference is in cost and convenience. One photo rejuvenation treatment in a spa or salon typically costs $50-$100, and it’s usually recommended that you get a series of 5 to 10 treatments several times a year. With home-use photo rejuvenation lights you can enjoy unlimited treatments in the convenience of your own home for less than $300.
Q. Is infrared LED light safe for sensitive skin?
A. If you have very sensitive skin it might be a good idea to start with a shorter treatment time and work up to the full treatment. Also, be sure to start with clean skin… lotions could heat up and cause a problem. If there is any redness or discomfort after treatment, applying a damp cloth afterwards may help calm down your skin.

Q. I’ve been looking for information on the LED light treatments that I’ve been receiving from my skin care specialist. Is there a significant difference between the benefits of blue and infrared/red light?
A. The choice of light depends on what you are trying to accomplish. BLUE light comforts and soothes skin, and has anti-sensitive functions. It is used clinically to treat acne, as it is absorbed by bacterial acne, resulting in a toxic environment for the bacteria. RED light stimulates and activates skin cells and promotes blood circulation. VISIBLE red light penetrates to a depth of about 8-10 mm, and is beneficial in treating problems close to the surface such as wounds, cuts, scars, trigger and acupuncture points, and is particularly effective in treating infections. INVISIBLE red light (infrared) is the longest wave length, and penetrates to a depth of about 30-40 mm, which makes it more effective for bones, joints, deep muscles, etc. Infrared light is absorbed by the skin and used as a source of energy to stimulate fibroblast cell activity in the skin, which increases the production of collagen and elastin—the proteins responsible for your skin’s tone and elasticity. Most infrared LED lights produce both red and infrared wavelengths, and are effective for rejuvenating aging skin as well as treating acne and blemishes. NOTE REGARDING BLUE LIGHT: Be sure the merchant supplies proper eye protection. And if you have a teenager using it for acne be sure he/she actually uses the eye protection!
Q I’ve been receiving red light therapy to firm my skin and reduce wrinkles and I’ve seen a slight improvement after many sessions, but not as much as I’d like. Will infrared work better?
A. It’s very likely you will see better results with infrared light. As explained in the last question, infrared light penetrates much deeper than red light, so it is able to reach the layer of skin where collagen and elastin are produced..
While doing research on the Web I read that yellow light is effective for skin rejuvenation. What are the benefits and results of infrared and red light therapy vs. yellow?

Q Can LED light treatment be used on someone who has been treated recently with Botox® injections?
A. I believe that although the light would cause no harm to the tissue, since it has a regenerative effect it might shorten the life of the paralyzing effect of Botox, so the person might want to avoid using the light around the injected areas until the Botox wears off.
Q. Will the Photo Rejuevanation System work for stretch marks and loose skin on the stomach?
A.: “We have customers who are using the system on the stomach and for stretch marks, and I know that is it very helpful with scaring… the age of the scar tissue will determine the time required to see results.” Also, when I was selling a different light (smaller and less powerful) I heard about a woman who used the light on a scar while she was laid up in bed for 10 days. She said the scar diminished a great deal during this time by treating it for 15 minutes a day.

1. Do I need gel with my machines?
Microcurrent ION sprays or facial gels are recommended for microcurrent procedures.
LED As rule of thumb, you should clean the affected skin with a non-abrasive skin cleanser designed to remove oils and sebum prior to the treatment but we do not recommend the application of any creams or supplements that may leave a reflective surface, prior to photo therapy.
No topical creams needed before treatment, a good anti-aging cream can be used after the treatment. If you have LED machine access the colors red and green have a calming and healing effect on the skin and would be recommended.
Radio Frequency Machines & Ultrasonic Cavitation
Yes you will want to use a medical grade cooling gel.
