    Default 660nm or 880nm - either of these is better for facial pain?

    Hello everyone...

    I would appreciate some input if possible on this issue.

    I was wondering if there would be a difference between the two wavelenghts (660 or 880) in terms of addressing the burning/pain sensations on the face (with or without a flush) ??

    Or do they both help??

    Thanks in advance!

    Penny,

    That's more of an individual response.
    When I first started LLLT I used the DPL which is a combo of red and infrared because I hoped that the infrared which penetrates more deeply would provide relief from the flushing/burning more thoroughly. I had to d/c that though as the infrared put out too much heat and caused me to flush as I was doing it.

    Some people have had more success with the combination and some cannot handle it. Unfortunately it's the rosacea mantra. It depends on the individual.

    Sorry I cannot help you with this but the best advice I could give you is whatever you try start slowly and be patient.

    Best wishes,
    Melissa
