  1. Hello folks, I have been dermastamping for a while now and the two last times I included using red/infrared LED lamps to increase collagen growth. What I didn't think of was my hypertrophic scars which are a product of excess collagen growth. Is it bad to use the LED lamps on my hypertrophic scars after dermastamping? I found this source: http://www.rheumatologynews.com/fileadmin/content_pdf/san/scms_pdf/vol27_i4_Light-Emitting_Diodes.pdf Where it says the following: "imposed on the indi
  2. Hi everyone! I'm a 28 year old guy who has very very oily skin since i was 12 where my skin gets very oily after just half an hour. Recently I bought an LED Mask that has about 100+ LED bulbs that emits red and blue LED lights as well as infrared. I have been using just the RED light (632nm in wavelength) mode for half-an-hour to one hour a day and after a month, my skin has been much less oily than before. I only used the RED light because I read that its wavelength can go deep to reach t
  3. Hello! I was wondering if any of you have tried red light therapy for superficial scarring. I did a treatment yesterday as part of a facial, along with blue light and high frequency, and today my skin looks more plump and my scars are barely noticeable under makeup. I tried portable red lights before, but this time the aesthetician had me lay under the red light for 15 minutes (it seemed very strong, I had to put goggles on), after 15 minutes under a blue light that covered my entire face. Ev
  4. I've been using the Tanda light with both the blue head (414nm) and the red head (630nm) for acne & anti-aging/inflammation. The blue light hasn't been working as well as I hoped, so I've been delving into LED light therapy research to try to understand.........anyways, I came across this in an abstract: "At low fluencies, both 415 and 455 nm enhanced proliferation of S. aureus..." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20662022 Now I am slightly worried by the idea that low-level blue ligh
  5. So last week I started using a blue light treatment similar to the Tria device, however my skin has been freaking out. So I stopped using it today and read some interesting research about how the blue light works to treat acne. Apparently the blue light makes the P. Acne bacteria produce more Porphyrins. Porphyrins are bacterial excretions, that kill the bacteria themselves by free radical damage. However this can become lodged in pores and lead to more acne. So what do you guys think
  6. I have cystic acne and Seb derm on my face the Seb derm is also on my scalp. I currently have the Seb Derm under control on both my scalp and face by using ACV and Tea Tree Oil which also seems to be helping my acne although I am still breaking out regularly. Basically I gave up all the sh*tty benzoyl peroxides and washes and all the other harsh chemical products months ago, my regimen at the minute consists of washing my face with water in the morning letting it dry, applying ACV and water m
  7. Hey everyone, After doing a little research I thought that this might be interesting to post. I would like to see what you all think about this. Here are a few abstracts from this site: http://heelspurs.com/led.html#skin - If you use LEDs check this out. 1. LED light arrays are a means to provide these wavelengths. Companies may claim lasers and pulse rates are important, but the only things are the wavelength and total amount of light energy applied. For example, 880 nm is a bad choic
  8. Hey All, Just wondering if anyone has tried using LED light therapy, preferably the red one, for acne scarring? If so did you notice any difference? I was reading over Lamarr's thread and he apparently (I say apparently because the photo links no longer work) achieved great results with derma rolling for a year followed up with using LED's (yellow, red and infrared). I was looking online to possibly purchase one but they are kind of expensive, at least for me (student life, hello!) so j
  9. Hi guys, new here. I have always prowled this site but never went on to create a user. Well anyway... I have been using an at-home LED Light Therapy hand-held machine for acne and perioral dermatitis. It's been only about a week but my skin has responded quite well so far. However, the post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation marks that were left from my perioral dermatitis (had it since I was 11) seems to have gotten DARKER! It's in the form of a 'goatee' although I have no hair in that area. I'm
