    Default Just starting

    Hi everyone,

    This morning i received the 660nm red LED handheld device i bought off ebay : http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...B:EOIBSA:UK:11

    My skin has not been behaving this week, lots of redness, some dermatitis and papules. I'm going to give this a reasonable run before I opt for IPL with Dr Crouch.

    How long should I treat for? How many minutes? Should I be expecting significant benefit from this? I
    i'll let you know how i get on.

    I would start with 5 mins a day on each area. It may take a some weeks to see any results. My first result was a decrease in flushing.
    dx early 2006.
    current stategy;
    finacea (on occasional spot), 20+ x IPL and 17+ low level PDL (n-light)

    Hi Helena,
    I agree with Moomy and start slowly and be patient. Red light can take a long time to reap benefits from and it is slow and steady that is the best method.

    Good luck!

    Hi guys,

    haven't noticed any ill effects from the light.

    This is almost certainly wishful thinking or placebo effect, but my skin does feel a bit better. I'm sayin' nothin'.

    Hi - I'm interested in getting one of these units and just wondered how you've been finding it.

    I hope it's making an improvement for you!

    Thanks

    Hi BMBM and welcome to the forum.

    The RLT has been a big help for me but I still need to get laser treatments to help my flushing and burning. It has helped calm my skin and decrease burning and flushing to some extent though and that is a huge relief for me.
    I have been using it on and off for about a year and definitely am trying to use it more consistently for better results.

    Best wishes,
    Melissa

    Hi BMBM,

    I've been using RLT for a few months now and it has greatly reduced my flushing and overall redness. I am soooo glad I found this forum and the information on RLT. There is a lot of info here on the subject and many others who have found it to be a helpful treatment. Good luck to you

    Redflake...I"m happy to hear that RLT is helping you?

    Are you using an all red device and which specific one? How long per day do you use it?

    Other then flushing, does it help you with any other symptoms (ex. burning or stinging?)

    Thanks,

    Penny
