FDA cleared (510(k) is K081570) Frequently Asked Questions:
How often and how long should I use the RED Deep Penetrating Light Therapy Device?
The Deep Penetrating Light Therapy Device is designed to run for nine (9) minutes per treatment. We recommend taking two (2) treatments daily for the first month and then two treatments a week after that. If you miss a treatment, don’t worry; just extend the daily treatments for the lost days.
How long until I see results?
Everyone’s skin varies, but most people feel and see a difference in about four treatments. Because of differences in damaged skin, some people will see the benefits almost immediately and others will need more treatments. Typically within a few uses, people feel a tingling in their skin, a slight warmth and a tightening of their skin. Then users start seeing the fine lines and wrinkles start to disappear as their skin plumps up. Because treatments are progressive, we recommend treatments for at least ten (10) weeks, for best results.

The Deep Penetrating Light Therapy Device is proven to work on all skin types. There is over a 90% success rate for people using our system correctly. The most difficult skin to help is people who (1) have had sever sun damage, (2) are or have been smokers, and (3) are very thin.
