This is a great Red light source for Acne scar treatment. This treatment has shown to be very effective for correcting Acne scars. This Bulb has over 38 Red LEDs (Light emitting Diodes) and it is very powerful. It has the same purpose as the Photon mask I reviewed here, the biggest difference is the price and shape of it. If you are on a budget and still want to benefit from Red light therapy this bulb is the way to go. Let us review the effects of the light.
Red Light (660 nm): Has shown to reduce wrinkles, make the skin smoother, help blood circulation, help in the creation of collagen and reduce the size of pores.
Remember the creation of collagen, so that our skin begins reshaping is the most important aspect of scar healing, of course eliminating wrinkles and making your skin smoother is a nice bonus.
This light bulb has a lot of Red LEDs, so it is very strong and enough to cover your entire face. You plug this Bulb into any lamp socket and just point the light towards your face for 20 minutes, very simple.
So Why This Product?
Great Reviews in Amazon, great price for the number of LEDs available. This is a great budget Scar treatment, but if you have the extra money you can go for the Photon mask I mentioned above, but using this product is good too.
You also get free UV goggles, since you do not want the light pointing directly at your eyes. With the photon mask this isn’t necessary since the mask has shielding around the eyes.
Tips and Tricks?
Always, remember to always wash your face first, this will make sure there is no dead skin that could block the light from entering your skin.
Always wear your goggles, direct light to your eyes can be harmful, so please be careful.
Shine the light at least 12 to 14 inches away from your face, at this distance the light will cover your face completely.
Turn off any other lights in the room you are using this product in, this will make sure there is no light interruption from other sources.
Only use this light for 20 minutes, 6 times a week maximum.
These are scars we are healing, so you will not see results right away, this treatment takes patience and time, you will notice your skin is very smooth once you finish the treatment, but it will take a few months before you see real permanent results.
There has been some small research that suggests that Red light can make your thyroids act up, while this isn’t proven, better safe than sorry, I usually wrap a towel around my neck and collar bone, so there is no light hitting my thyroid.
The Red LED Bulb is an excellent product if you want to try LED based scar treatments. The Photon mask is pretty good, but this is still a great price conscious way to get you started on this type of treatment. The research is there and the results that many people like myself are getting speak for themselves. Isn’t time for you to get results as well?
If you have any questions or comments, go for it and I’m sure this product will help you on the path to Beautiful Clear Skin.
