I definitely recommend the BeautySkin. I used to use it for 15 minutes twice a day, and it made a signifcant impact on my skin. I was never able to completely clear my acne with it (which is between minor and moderate) but it reduced the number of leisons I had by about 2/3. The best method is to combine it with other treatments, like BP or a retinoid.
To be honest, the best part about the BeautySkin lamp wasn't the fact that it helped prevent new leisons from forming (which is what the blue lamps do by destroying the p.acne bacteria), but that it VASTLY speeded up the healing time of existing leisons (which is what the red lamps do). I stopped using the BeautySkin consistently after less than a year because it is extremely tedious to sit in front of it 15 minutes once a day (and for quite a while I was using it twice a day). I had to abandon it for a more sustainable regimen. But I still use the lamp every now and then for its speed healing properties, to help clear up lesions more quickly when I do get them. That`s why I`m thinking of just getting 6 new red bulbs, instead of 3 red and 3 blue. I`m going to see how that works out.
Unfortuantely, the main BeautySkin site is no longer selling anything because its supplier is out of business. I`ve googled around and found a few sites which have BeautySkin stock left over but realistically this commodity will soon disappear off the market completely. So if you`ve got a BeautySkin you might look into buying some replacement bulbs now before everything`s gone.
