You can get just as good results with a home blue-red light. You can buy your own light for about the cost of 1 or 2 sessions at a spa.

The LightWave CS is one of the better lights out there that is still affordable.

Yes, I tried both red and blue light therapy. In my opinion, red light has more benefits because it stimulates collagen and helps with the skin's overall health. Blue light is good too, but it might cause some superficial breakouts as it pulls out bacteria from the skin and unclogs pores. For me, blue light didn't do that much but blue & red together is a good combo. My acupuncturist used a portable red light and the first time it made a huge difference, and I was even wearing makeup when she did it. I recently got a facial with red and blue light, and the results are good but you have to keep up with it. Also, it works better when it is close to your face, or even touching your face (hopefully the spa sanitizes it after each use!), rather than what is shown in the picture you posted.

I'm a bit nervous about buying a home system or even a portable device, I would rather have an expert do it in case it malfunctions (I read some user reviews for various LED lights and some were saying that they got burnt or that their hyperpigmentation got worse).

I also tried a red, blue, and green light sauna for the whole body. It was an interesting experience, but I'm not sure if it did anything other than detoxing because I only use it when it's free.

Another thing that I find works as good as red light and better than blue light is high frequency.


Current regimen: garlic supplements [as needed], Enzymedica gluten blocker [as needed], nicadan [not sure if it works yet]. I try to simplify as much as I can. Don't take more supplements than you need....try one at a time and be patient.

The supplements that really helped me when my acne was at its worst: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements. NOTE: I do not recommend DIM for long term use, and I do not recommend hormonal creams without doctor supervision.

Lifestyle & Skin Care: acupuncture, regular exercise/ yoga, low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...
