    Default **POLL** Low Level Light Therapy / Red Light Therapy

    How many of us use or are interested in trying LLLT/RLT (Low Level Light Therapy/Red Light Therapy)?

    I've tried to include as many different options/opinions as possible.
    I didn't find an option to chose more than one selection, so if you use it please make another post to indicate whether or not it's making a difference for you.

    ---

    I use Red.
    I see an improvement in symptoms.

    I use red.
    Some improvement in symptoms.

    A second bash at LED treatment. Six or so weeks in. Skin texture has improved. Flushing response muted a touch. Persistent redness less marked.

    I can relax during sessions now. Flushing has been provoked not once.

    As winter approaches my symptoms invariably get worse. I hope LLLT will minimise the extent of the deterioration.

    Hi Twicklepurple!!!

    I am just starting to use the red+near infrared and as of yet I can't say I see improvement....skin looks white for about 1 minute after session but redness comes back.

    How are you recovering? I have had some up days and some bad...I am somewhere in the middle right now...Take care

    Hi there Lookout!

    I'm doing really well, I'd say about 85% recovered from Gemini, just the glass shard feeling under the skin and broken blood vessels, I had this last time and it takes the longest to pass.

    In my experience, the effects of the low level light therapy are accumulative, this has been commented on by others too -- that you build on each time you use it. So your paleness lasts longer and the flushing becomes more and more sporadic and reduced. I still have flushes, they happen every day, but they go away quickly instead of lingering and they are more defined instead of all over stem to stern so to speak. ;) Some changes are so subtle at first, that it doesn't register until the difference is remarkable, like the dry (I'm talking sub sahara) skin on my face is gone, my skin barrier is healing. It's never been like this my entire life.

    I haven't tried te 660nm+880nm yet. I hope you're covering your eyes well with it, even though you don't see the 880nm when the LEDs are lit, they are active a can damage the eye balls. 8)

    Big hugs!

    If someone has found an appropriate set of goggles or hit upon a good idea for protecting the eyes from infrared light levels, I would be very grateful to hear about it. (Preferably something that does not involve lifting the eyelid and placing a plate underneath it or some such. Eek!')

    Thanks.

    Hi GJ

    Anthony ('pontypool') posted this in August. These look like nice goggles:

    These are the stainless steel eye shield goggles that came with my 880/660 lamp panels:

    My orbs are a bit bigger than what they cover so I'm still looking for something a bit bigger. I'm going to see an opthamologist and I'll ask if he has any leads.

    Cheers,

    Sheesh TP! They would want to be darn good goggles for $125! Ouch!

    Please do let us know what your Ophthalmologist has to say after you've seen him.
