Beautycon LA: Commonly Asked Questions About Light Therapy

Our Glow Masters were at it again; spreading the good word on all things light therapy at Beautycon LA 2017. For 2 days, our brand’s booth, nestled between Nike and The Creme Shop, drew hundreds of people wanting to learn more and purchase light therapy devices. We were shocked by how many people didn’t know about light therapy or believe in the results.

It can be difficult to trust that a little light can fade acne or reduce fine lines and wrinkles. But don’t just trust us; our lights are medically proven to work wonders. Our Glow Masters collected the top 3 questions Beautycon-ers had and we are dishing out the answers here for everyone to benefit from.

“When will I see results?”

Blue acne light:

  • 3-5 days with consistent use

Infrared, red, and amber anti-aging light:

  • 12 weeks with consistent use

Everyone’s skin and needs are different, but we’ve found these to be typical time frames. Helpful tip: track your skin’s progress with photos. Because our lights work from the inside out, changes are gradual. It helps to compare your before and after images side by side. 

 

“What are the different LED light therapy colors and what are the benefits of each?”

Our devices emanate four unique light spectrums, each providing different benefits:

  • Infrared (IR) light
    • Invisible to the naked eye, IR light penetrates deeper than any other color in the spectrum. IR light combats the signs of aging by stimulating the natural production of collagen and elastin. It is also used to accelerate healing or wounds, cuts, and damage.
  • Red light
    • Reaching deep into the layers of your skin, red light stimulates cellular repair and increases circulation to promote a more vibrant, youthful complexion. Red and IR light work synergistically to deliver optimal skin rejuvenation.
  • Amber light
    • This light spectrum will bring you vitality to dull or lifeless complexions. Amber light reduces the appearance of redness, swelling and inflammation. This color of light is beneficial for rosacea and the treatment of burns. This includes sunburns!
  • Blue light
    • It’s proven to have powerful anti-bacterial properties which is used to treat mild to moderate acne. Blue light also helps purify your skin, stabilize oil glands, and soothe inflammation.

 

“Are there benefits to the bigger reVive Light Therapy devices?”

The lights we use in our smallest devices are the same lights we use in our biggest devices. No matter the size you purchase, you will always receive the same high-quality LED light.

The benefit of purchasing a larger device is that it will save you time. Our hand-held devices are meant to treat specific areas. For example, treating crow’s feet or scattered acne breakouts. When using a larger device, like our Full-Face Panel, one treatment will cover your entire face and neck.

    I just bought the clinical grade hand-held device of yours. I could find no information on the application for the eye area except that it should not be directly used on the eye. With the goggles can the eye area be treated with this device? Thank you.

    • Jay Hanna says:

      Hi Candace (if I may). Thank you for reaching out to us about your hand-held. We are always happy to help. That device is FDA cleared for full face treatment, including the areas around the eyes. As long as you have your safety goggles on you are good to go.

    Hi, I just purchased the panel and am still waiting for it. I have some fine lines and brown spots that are really close to the eyes. I think with the goggles on, my concerned areas may not be able to be exposed to the light. Do you think I can just close my eyes without using the goggles? Thank you.
