LOOK WHAT I FOUND!

comes in blue light too!

lol i always love fancy gadgets. its a bit gimmicy though. leds definitely improve post wound healing, however the leds need to be used for around 10-15 minutes daily for months after the initial needling session. collagen after all takes a while to form.

attaching the led would only allow the light to penetrate the skin during the needling process for few seconds is unlikely to do anything. its just not long enough.

in addition, its best the wounds are kept moist and away from led night for the first few days. this product exposes the wound to led light immediately. this is bad.

in summary, a nice idea and leds do work. but dont buy this :)

sorry to be a dampener too, im only trying to help.

oh, no worries : ). I definitely wasn't going to buy it because I also think that we need to expose our skin to led light longer than a rolling session to get it going. I just like how skin rejuvenating companies are picking up that red led light may be beneficial to skin healing after needling/rolling : ).

Why is it best not to use LED lights for the first few days after dermarolling? I thought it was best to use it right after to aid the healing process.

yeah i wouldve thought the same thing as you. when i read the technique used by the more experienced people who needle here and use leds, i found several of them recommended waiting.

more recently i discovered its best to keep wounds moist. anyhoo, maybe it has something to do with not drying it out (leds produce heat after all). i could be wrong and perhaps someone more experienced will know.
