    Default SURVEY | Effectiveness of light therapy for rosacea and/or seborrheic dermatitis

    Hi,

    I have created a Survey Monkey to gauge the effectiveness of light therapy for rosacea and/or seborrheic dermatitis.

    It's 10 questions, everything from skin type, symptoms before treatment to effectiveness of treatment and side effects (if any).

    I wanted to make the survey results available to all at the click of a button at the outset, but it'll cost £24 a month to do that, so I will just have to release the info periodically - unless someone has a better idea. I would do a poll on here, but the options are too limited.

    Anyway, would really appreciate your responses as it could potentially help a lot of people. And please tell me if you think any of it needs changing!

    Just so you know, people are going to have to control copy the address to their address bar. The hyperlink doesn't work.

    No problem! I would take it but I've never used a RLT before. Definitely thinking about buying one though so I'll have to check out the results.

    Me too. Whats putting you off?

    For me it's -
    • Will it damage my eyes?
    • Improve my SD or make it worse?
    • Do I need infrared?
    • What's the best light wavelength (I've heard it said that 620-640nm is the most effective)
    • Will it make my skin dryer as it stops the skin producing so much oil?

    Mostly the price. If I did buy one it would be the portable 140 or so dollar one from the LEDman place.

    As far as I've heard red is by far the most commonly used and supposedly the most convenient. Infrared is kind of an extra that works for some and doesnt for others.

    If I had to buy a single unit with a single LED type it would definitely be red. I don't have SD so I don't have to worry about that.
