Had Red/Blue Light Done Today

Today was a bad day.

Had a major, nervous breakdown and my mom finally decided we should give this a try.

Went to the office, some freelance skin care specialist.

First she applied some topicals (cleanse, tone, exfoliate, treat) and then we did the lights.

First the blue, took about 10-15 minutes, then the red which took about the same amount of time.

I'll keep everyone posted on the results and hopefully get some more information.

Currently, my skin is pretty red looking and stingy feeling, but that's expected. However, she said with in the next three days I should see the full effect of the light treatment (at which time we will decide if I require additional treatments).

I'll keep everyone posted.

not so sure about that. A friend of mine burned herself from a do-it-at-home thing. Is it really worth it?

Was this blue/red treatment or was it Levulan (i.e. ALA treatment- aminolevulanic acid) with blue light?

At first I thought it was Levulan, as she was applying some type of gel before treatment.

When I asked, "Is this the ALA?"

She was confused and told me this is just a cleanser, and that we weren't doing Levulan, just regular Blue Light, followed by Red.

How many treatments are you having? I'm not sure if you realise, but this is a maintenance-like procedure. Unless you have ALA alongside them, you're going to need ALOT of visits.

Home kits are by far the most effective way to use light therapies, both results and finacially speaking.

This is all I see you do.

Misery does love company it would appear.

Please stop being so negative, we all can do it, and it does nothing. For example, the dip regimen sucks ass. It will work for the first week or two, then you'll breakout like normal and you skin quality will diminish over the next few weeks.

Happy?

I do plan to head back in for 1-2 more treatments now, and hopefully, I am going to buy a Red/Blue light from AcneLamp, or maybe build my own.

I had 4 treatments of blue light & 3 treatments of red light & spent $790.00, my skin looked great for a little while but then it got bad again. I works but it's not very long lasting however maybe your skin is better than mine & I hope that it does work for you.

lamps are practically useless because they all have different wavelengths. lumiport has a chip to make sure that the light's wavelength varies very little. professional treatments like from omnilux, obviously, have even more precise wavelength and are more powerful.

little did he kn- what kind of light treatment are they doing on you and how much does it cost? Omnilux?
