Good to Know
- This device is only for use by people with the following Fitzpatrick skin types:
- Type I (scores 0-6): Always burns, never tans (pale white; blonde or red hair; blue or gray eyes; freckles).
- Type II (scores 7-13): Usually burns, tans minimally (white; blonde, brown or red hair; blue, green or hazel eyes).
- Type III (scores 14-20): Sometimes mildly burns, tans uniformly (cream white; yellowish; every hair and eye color).
- Do not use the face mask if you are taking drugs known to cause photosensitive reactions. Doing so may result in skin discoloration, discomfort or pain. Common examples of drugs that may make you sensitive to light are antihistamines (used in cold and allergy medicines), non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (used to control pain and inflammation) and antibiotics (including the tetracyclines and the sulfonamides, or "sulfa" drugs).
- Never use this device over any suspicious or cancerous lesion.
- Do not use around running water, sinks or bathtubs. Doing this may result in electrical shock.
- Do not use the face mask if you are pregnant. The face mask has not been tested for use during pregnancy.
- This device is limited to use by a single person. Do not share the device with other people.
- Do not stare directly at the LED light or its reflection. Staring directly at the LEDs for too long may irritate your eyes. Eye goggles have been provided for your safety.
- Do not use over or near a recent steroid injection. This may cause personal injury.
- Keep away from children.
- Do not use with topical products (balms or ointments) that contain heat-producing ingredients. This may result in a skin burn.
- If using the face mask causes any discomfort or any other concerns develop, stop use immediately.
- Do not operate this device in an environment where other devices that intentionally radiate electromagnetic energy in an unshielded manner are being used. Portable or mobile radio frequency communication equipment can affect medical electrical equipment.
- If you use the face mask as directed, risks are very low. However, the following mild side effects may occur with normal use:
- Skin may feel warm during treatment
- Skin may develop a slight redness that fades within 24 hours
- Skin may develop slight dryness that goes away during the first 1 to 2 weeks of treatment
I have uaed this mask for a week only missing 2 of the recommended 15 minute sessions. I look amazing! Looks like I've had extra rest and water. I will continue to use it everyday and return with more input! Thank you! So happy with this product!blueberry7, AZWas this review helpful? 3 out of 3 found this review helpful
Yes a Definite Change
I have been using this for 3 months now. The 1st month, I notice my skin was more smooth & just looked nicer. Now after 3 months, my jowls are gone literally. I had a fold on the side of my mouth (66yrs) and after 3 months it is a light shadow of a line. My forehead lines are gone completely. I do not use the goggles and am careful to close my eyes. Under my eyes I had hatched lines, they are barely visible now. Looking forward to continued use.SUSANFROMNJ, NJWas this review helpful? 3 out of 3 found this review helpful

Couldn't use it
I gave it 5 stars because it looked well made and came packaged well too. I never got to use it because the instructions said not to use it if you take NSAIDS for chronic pain etc. or something like that. Apparently there can be a photosensitive reaction for those of us using NSAIDS type drugs.My only annoyance is, I really wish the hosts would clearly STATE these sorts of issues with a product. It would have saved me the bother and shipping costs. If I'd known about these issues, I'd not have purchased this device. I know they want to sell goods, but give your loyal customers a break huh? Give this kind of disclaimer several times, such as "who's this device NOT suitable for?" and then list the issues. Otherwise, in addition to possibly losing customers, there's a liability issue as well, not everyone thoroughly reads or understands product directions. Thanks.Mulberrymarquess, MAWas this review helpful? 32 out of 33 found this review helpful
Dr. R Glen Calderhead expert in phototherapy and photosurgery says the LED light masks work as a treatment not and cure and it has cumulative effects on the skin. It reduces inflammation, promotes circulation, improves texture and reduces appearance of wrinkles! YAY! You just need a few weeks for it to start the process. And I can say my skin looks radiant, smoother and I feel that my wrinkles are starting to look less noticeable. The mask is comfortable and it only takes fifteen minutes to use everyday! So I think we have to remember it is all about the LED lights! Use it everyday for fifteen minutes and you will see results at around two months or maybe less. And if at salons the cost can be $125 for 30 minutes! So this is the best value! Just give it time and read up on how the LED work and I know you will love the results!!!Gracee335, OHWas this review helpful? 15 out of 19 found this review helpful
