    I want to add this to that bit I put in regarding FAQs for LLLT:

    An LED and a laser device using 660nm wavelength light will create the same response in the body. The difference is coherent and non-coherent light.

    Here's a copy and paste from this site that explains it succinctly:

    Monochromatic single wavelength light can only be produced in two ways - Low Power/Cold Laser (coherent light) or with a powerful light-emitting diode, LED (non-coherent light). Although much of the low power laser research is directly applicable to the use of LED's, LED's non-coherent light is entirely safe.

    Dr Tiina Karu, of the Laser Technology Centre of Russia, found in the late 80's that the non-coherent light (LED's) was found to be as effective as coherent light and without the risk associated with cold lasers.

    Happiness is a choice.

    Default RLT

    I was only able to vote that I use red + near infrared. How do I also vote that I saw improvement? -Artist

    Now over time I have noticed that my base redness has diminished greatly! My skin is more even toned. There is still some redness there but I have to say it has decreased by 30-50%. That 30%-50% is not perfect but its such a significant change that my skin almost looks like any other regular guy with a slightly rosy cheeks. It's no longer at the point where it looks irregular, if you know what I mean.

    I will not forget to mention the profound effect I am gettting with flushing and burning. Burning was a problem in my worst days. IPL helped with it and so did Accutane but now RLT has eradicated burning totally. No more random phantom burning episodes.

    I still flush while working out. I still feel uncomfortable in indoor heat. I still blush in semi-embarrasing situations. But even the symptoms of my rosacea that lingers have been reduced significantly.

    Two thumbs up for RLT.
    Fut my results sound like yours so far. I've been using the red + near infrared for 15 days. My skin is pale right after, even if I've just done something that made it pink/red.

    Right now I use it for 15 minutes every night, and sometimes for five or ten minutes in the morning after getting ready.

    So far so good!

    Hi Artist,

    The Poll tool does not allow multiple selections per vote (bit of a limitation), so I tried to cover the bases and hoped folks might post further details.

    Thanks for posting!

    Default Anyone in the U.S?

    Has anyone in the U.S. had this done or is it only available in Canada?

    Hi Kimmyd,

    This is a home-based treatment using a device that emits a particular wavelength of light. There are many web sites that sell these, they come a various shapes and sizes.
