    Default Grow light? (660nm LED)

    I'm looking at eBay listings for cheap LED. I came across this, but wonder if it's too strong in terms of wattage?

    I have a 630nm light which I used daily but may need to step up the wavelength.

    I've got one of these ]

    In the manual it says it's 660nm.
    The led diameter face is 45mm across.
    There is a spacer you can attach which keeps it about 20mm off your face.
    Even though it's small it gives out a strong light without any heat

    I use the ABI 25 watt Deep Red LED and I love it. Its does get hot and its heavy too so I have a fan going while using it and a dumbell on the base of the gooseneck lamp so it doesnt tip over. I keep it 4-6 inches from my face. It has been more helpful than the mask I have. I would def recommend the bulb

    How much did you pay for yours? I'm looking on eBay and I see there's many listings.

    If these are good enough I wonder what the difference is between these and the LEDs sold particularly for rosacea sufferers?

    I paid $34.95 for mine on Amazon a few months ago.
    I think the difference is nothing more than slapping the word “rosacea” on the box and overcharging for it because most people would search for a “therapy light” and don’t know/realize there are other avenues they could take

    Yes. I think people are being over charged. A red light is red light. However, wattage might be too strong on these grow lights if they're meant for plants rather than the human face.

    If I were to use a grow light I would approach it cautiously.

    I did a quick search and the majority of the LED therapy lights are also 25-30 watts. Both in single bulb or multi bulb free standing units, so I think we’re good there

    I am probably going to buy this light, as it is 660nm.

    Read the comments and you'll see others have cottoned on to the idea of using this light for skin therapy and wound healing.

    That is the same bulb I use. Its excellent but heavy. Keep that in mind for whatever you plan to screw it into.

    I bought an expensive RLT device after looking into the cheaper ones on amazon. It is brilliant and has helped with my flushing a great deal. It's made it so much more manageable. However, if my expensive light broke I'd definitely buy something like this. I'm sure they are all the same thing! Good luck with it. I hope it helps.
