The Rejuven LED Light is used as a light therapy for your skin, mainly on your face but it would likely have similar results on your neck, shoulders or hands as well. The setup is easy; it plugs in to the wall and does not have a charger option, so the product itself isn’t mobile. It comes with four different interchangeable heads, each with a different color for a different type of healing. There are 12 LED lights in each head.
Once it’s plugged in, you choose which color you’re going to use based on what effects you’d like to see and then simply turn it on. The manual suggests dividing your face into four quadrants and placing the light directly on your face for 2 to 3 minutes before moving to another area of the face. Overall, the light should be used for 10-12 minutes total and is gentle enough to be used every day.
There are different levels that can be selected when the light is turned on using the arrows on the front. Level 1 is the lowest setting and slowly pulses. Level 2 pulses faster so the skin receives more light. Level 3 is the highest, and it does not pulse, but gives steady consistent light. It can make skin dry if used too often on such a high level.
The red light plumps your skin as it stimulates body tissues. It helps with the general signs of aging, evening out skin tone and brightening skin. The light is popularly used to stimulate collagen production and diminish the appearance of wrinkles, repair and tighten damaged skin.
The blue light is great for acne as it kills bacteria, reduces inflammation and prevents new breakouts. It kills up to 99.99% of bacteria in longer sessions when hit directly, but because blue light doesn’t penetrate the skin as deeply, it doesn’t completely knock out all bacteria. However, it can make a noticeable difference to blemishes in only one session because of its ability to reduce inflammation. This is a good alternative to topical acne medications with unwanted side effects such as skin peeling or drying out.
The green light helps keep uneven skin tones and slows hyperpigmentation by breaking melanin down and can calm and balance the skin. It also is meant to stimulate the lymphatic drainage system.
The amber light is also sometimes known as yellow or orange, and it has a more shallow penetration level. This color helps with redness, rosacea, spider veins, and reduce the appearance of blood vessels on the face. It’s widely used for treating sun damage. Because the yellow is more gentle, it is perfect for those with sensitive skin.
Not only can the lights help different serums absorb into your skin, but they are a good alternative for those that don’t want to use chemical serums or moisturizers on their skin. Light therapy has been researched for all of its benefits, and while the information isn’t in the user manual, all of the benefits are listed and available online.
Overall, this light therapy system comes with the essential wavelenghts for healthy skin and can treat most skin conditions that the average person suffers from. It can even treat the less common issues (rosacea, serious acne) that not everyone suffers from, and it’s recommended to use different lights throughout your sessions. Using light therapy at least weekly over a period of 8 to 10 weeks will also show latent effects.
There’s a huge advantage to being able to do your own treatment in the comfort of your own home and deciding what treatment you’d like to use in conjunction with your own serums and creams. It also takes away the need to go to a professional office and pay multiple times for treatments based on a schedule that isn’t yours. Since this kit is easy to set up and easy to use, it’s a great alternative to seeing a dermatologist or other skin professional.
