Skin cells undergo changes due to natural aging, sun and weather exposure or bad habits. Millions of dollars are spent annually in an effort to defy the visible effects of aging and damage. The most effective rejuvenating methods involve treatments obtained through licensed dermatological specialists. However, having to keep appointments multiple times weekly becomes an inconvenience and costly. The advancements in technology now enable consumers to indulge in treatments in the privacy of their homes. Perfectio Zero Gravity is an elegantly designed hand-held device that promises to rejuvenate the appearance of skin using a combination of red and infrared LEDs. It is effective but there are much better solutions at a fraction of the cost.

Red and Infrared Light Therapy
The end of the Perfectio Zero Gravity wand features 25 red and infrared LED lights, which function at wavelengths ranging from 640 to 840nm. In this range, the gently pulsing lights capably penetrate deeply through the dermis, the epidermis and the hypodermis layers of the skin without emitting harmful UVA or UVB rays or heat. When subdermal cells become exposed to the lights, a number of biological effects take place. Organelles called mitochondria are stimulated to amp up cellular energy production, which enables skin cells to function more efficiently. The lights stimulate arteries in the direct area to release nitric oxide gas, which alerts vessels to dilate. With blood flow increased, cells and connective tissue receive more vital nutrients. Collagen, elastin and new skin cells are repaired or replaced thanks to the abundance of nutrition.
Perfectio Zero Gravity Basics
Each package comes with the charging and storing base, an A/C power adapter, the wand, carrying bag and instruction booklet. Per the manufacturer’s instructions, the unit must be fully charged prior to use. Skin must be thoroughly cleansed, rinsed and dried. Simply remove the wand from the charging unit and depress the button to turn on the wand. The LED lights do not emit light until they come in contact with skin.
Apply the lighted head directly to the skin on the desired regions. Move the wand slowly in circular motions over each region. Treat each area for approximately 10 minutes. After each session, apply a light moisturizer to the treated regions. The wand is recommended for use on the face, forehead and neck areas. The wand cannot be used over eye areas. If the lighted head becomes too warm, stop the treatment.
For optimal results, apply Zero Gravity treatments at least three times weekly. After achieving satisfactory results, repeat treatments weekly for maintenance. Cleaning the wand after each use merely requires wiping the head with a dry cloth. Avoid exposing the light-emitting unit to any type of moisture.
For world travelers, Perfectio offers a power adapter kit that comes with four different plugs that are compatible with 100 to 240V outlets found in Australia, Europe, the United Kingdom and the United States. Lightweight, zippered travel bags are also available.
