How often and how long should I use the system?
Usage is recommended for 3 minutes twice daily on affected areas, until acne has cleared. Place system head in contact with the affected area. Hold the unit still over treatment area. After 3 minutes move unit to the next treatment area. The device is designed to run for twenty (20) minutes and will automatically shut off. The device's fan will come on after 3 minutes of using. Do not cover ventilation holes with clothing or any other objects.
How do I use the System?
Take your device out of the box and insert the treatment head into the handle. Please be sure to line up the notches (small notch at the top of the handle) twist (turn) the head to the right to lock in place. Insert the power supply (make sure the green light is illuminated on the power supply) and push the “on” button (located on the front of the handle). You will see the blue LED's illuminate when the “on” button is pushed. The device's fan will come on after 3 minutes of continued use. Do not cover ventilation holes on the back of the system with clothing or any other objects. Covering may increase the skin’s surface temperature and the system (as a safety feature) will shut off if the temperature is too warm. In the event that the system shuts off during your treatment it is recommended that you allow the system to cool down before restarting.
Does the system work for everyone?
Blue light therapy is safe and gentle and proven to work on all skin types for acne treatment.
Should I cover my eyes when using the system?
Yes. A pair of goggles is included. If you choose not to wear the goggles, we recommend against staring directly at the LED's for an extended period of time.
When should I start seeing results?
Everyone’s skin and degree of acne is different so the results that are achieved will vary by individual. Some have seen results after 3 to 5 days of consecutive treatment. Depending on the severity of acne, it could take longer to see results. With reoccurring acne flare-ups we suggest returning to the original treatment of 3 minutes twice daily on affected areas until the acne has cleared.
Will the treatment hurt or cause discomfort?
No, unlike lasers, injections or other invasive treatments the blue light therapy is non-thermal, non-ablative and a non-invasive treatment. There are no harmful UV rays. Clients report no discomfort or pain associated with treatments.
Do I need to take off my makeup before treatment?
We recommend starting treatment with a fresh, clean face that is free of makeup and other impurities.
How long will the LED’s in the treatment head last?
The LED’s are rated for about 2,500 hours. Depending on usage, they should last for many years. LED’s are not like light bulbs with filaments but, have solid state chips inside.
How do I clean the treatment head?
We suggest putting a little rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball and lightly wipe the LED's
Turn on the device, place the light to targeted treatment area and hold still for 3 minutes. Move device to next treatment area and repeat again for 3 minutes. Your device will automatically shut off after 25 minutes – for maximum results, treat affected area twice daily.
