I love using LED light therapy in my treatments. I started with the Revitalight machine way back in 2002. I quickly moved on to a full face panel, so the treatment could be hands free! I incorporate LED into every single treatment I offer. Every client gets at least 10 minutes of LED during their treatment.
I've purchased two full face panels from different companies over the past few years. The first one I purchased was a $10,000 panel. It was good but not great. The next one was a $7000 panel and so much more effective than the first. I've definitely learned that not all LED equipment is created equal. I don't think that we need to purchase the most expensive one, thinking that because it costs more it should be better...not always true. But we also shouldn't be going for the cheapest deal we can find on the internet. A good panel is going to be a bit of an investment. It's not the first piece of equipment I would recommend investing in because it does not give that immediate WOW factor. Several treatments are needed to begin seeing results. I would definitely put it on your wish list though!
I do not have any LED machines available right now. I do have a few things up my sleeve that I'm testing so stay tuned!
Interesting Info: We've all learned to use blue LED for acne, correct? I've used it for years with pretty darn good results. Well....when I got my Radiancy CTL machine for acne (5 years ago) I noticed they calibrated it using green light. I questioned Radiancy's VP and he wasn't really sure why their developer had decided to go that route. All I knew was that I was getting so much better results with this green light than I ever had using the blue light. I didn't much think about it anymore, I was just super happy with the results I was getting. So, fast forward to very recently.
I met with a scientist recntly and ended up having an AHA moment from some info he shared with me about green light.
