I’ve made a command decision. I’m absolutely thrilled with the effects of the red light therapy on my rosacea. However, I’ve been stumbling across a lot of information that is saying that amber (yellow) light is also helping a lot of people with this skin condition. So I’ve decided to give my skin a double whammy of light therapy power and will be combining red and amber light.
The amber light therapy product is now in the mail and I can’t wait for it to arrive. I’ll be sure to do an unboxing video when it gets here, so that you can see what comes in the box and what the yellow light is like when it’s turned on.
Why am I getting amber light therapy for rosacea, too?
I have high hopes for this. As far as I can understand it, so far, it looks as though red light therapy penetrates more deeply into the skin, reducing inflammation (which causes swelling and redness) and healing all of the pimples, bumps, and other kind of damage that is already on the skin.
However, amber light waves don’t travel as deeply into the skin. They stay closer to the surface and have a very soothing and calming effect. So while it looks like red light therapy does a lot of the healing of the inflammation, redness, and damage that has occurred over the years, amber light therapy provides a faster and more visible result in the form of soothing the outer layers of the skin that are the most obvious to see.
The product that I’ll be getting is the Peak 589™ Amber LED Light Therapy Set, which is also from Smarter Lights (formerly Light Therapy Options), the same place that I got the red product that I use (Peak 630™ Red LED Light Therapy Set).
I’m still very happy with red light therapy 🙂
I just thought I’d point out that red light therapy is still working very well as a natural rosacea treatment, for me. I’m also still very pleased with the product that I chose to use. One of the main reasons is that it is so fast to use.
Unlike the red light therapy products that I’ve seen online at eBay and Amazon, and the ones I spotted a couple of weeks ago at Bed Bath and Beyond, I can do my whole face in as little as 4 and a half minutes (three 90 second sessions). As far as I can tell, the fastest product that I saw (other than the one from Light Therapy Options) required 15 minutes of treatment every day.
If it took me 15 minutes to treat my skin every day, I just know that I wouldn’t keep it up. I’m not good at being idle for a long period of time.
…And that leads me to the video that I created, this week. I’ve now been asked several times about what I do to pass the time while I’m wearing goggles and treating my skin. So I thought I’d have a bit of fun by telling you in a video. I’m still learning how to film and edit, and my equipment is very rough (I just ordered a new video camera that should be arriving on Wednesday), but I just thought I’d have some fun with there. Here it is.
Thank you very much for stopping by. I’ll start posting progress photos of my skin again, soon. I’m not sure why I stopped doing that, but I’ll get back into the habit 🙂
See you next time!
