    just a thought if anyone does decide to buy one, take things slowly.
    I wouldn't put the device as close to the skin as recommended.....try it at a distance first and only for the recommended time of a minute.
    best to build up very slowly to see how your skin tolerates it

    Definitely go slow if you do try it out. Once you do get to a longer exposure time, try to keep the light focused on one area so you know if it's going to be efficacious. This is the problem with handheld devices: rosacea affects the entire face and your vessels are inter-connected. It's not really suited for spot treatments; you really need larger, full-face coverage to see results.

    That being said, it's pretty cheap, yes.

    Best,

    Toleraine Soothing Light Facial Fluid for moisturizer. I don't use a special cleanser. Clonidine daily; klonopin sometimes.
    BEST and CURRENT TREATMENT I use: Low-Level Red Light Therapy LED array.
    Please feel free to PM me with your low-level red light therapy (LLRLT) questions. I'm happy to help if I can.

    Hi david, I appreciate what you are saying,but buying a smaller device was really just a way of finding out if my skin can actually tolerate red light, and then maybe investing in a larger model that treats the whole face at once. But they are so expensive!!!!

    Thanks for your imput, much appreciated.
