HOW IT WORKS
The device has a total of 360 LED bulbs (120 blue, 120 red, 120 near-infrared) which send wavelengths deep below the skin's surface.
Blue light (415nm) is absorbed into the skin’s first layer, triggering a natural reaction to destroy the acne-causing bacteria to reduce breakouts. Blue 415nm is clinically proven to significantly improve/clear mild to moderate acne by 76% after just 4 weeks (Morton, 2005).
One layer down, red light (633nm) is absorbed. Energising the skin to promote faster repair and renewal, it rejuvenates cells using targeted treatments for a host of concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, redness, pigmentation and psoriasis as well as muscular and joint pain.
Red 633nm and Near Infrared 830nm have been demonstrated to improve skin texture and smoothness by up to 79% (Neil S Sadick, 2008).
In the skin’s deepest layer, near-infrared (830nm) works to reduce inflammation, calm irritation and strengthen the skin. Near Infrared light 830nm has been proven to increase cell regeneration by up to 200% (Dr H Whelan et al, 2001).

IMPROVE FINE LINES & WRINKLES
Red 633nm and Near Infrared 830nm have been clinically proven to increase skin elasticity by 36%, reducing wrinkles and produce collagen to smooth out skin.
LED light is the best way to stimulate skin healing. Infra-red stimulates the ‘wound healing cells’ in the skin causing new ones to form and even out your skin tone.
Combined red light has been proven to clear Recalcitrant Psoriasis with 60% to 100% effectiveness within 8 sessions.
Near Infrared light can significantly reduce redness and flushing, plus it’s also clinically effective in the treatment of pigmentation.
Blue 415nm and Red 633nm have been clinically proven to improve acne and blemishes by 76% and heal acne scars.
Near-infra red light therapy helps to reduce the size of broken blood vessels and calm the redness on the face caused by rosacea and eventually reduce symptoms over time.
