We recommend that you not stare directly at the lamps. So long as you do not stare directly at the light glasses are not required
How can I Maintain the Results?
Once you have completed your red light therapy, you can perserve the results through a combination of one weekly session along with proper diet, hydration, special care products and exercise.
Is it OK to wear cosmetics during the session?
Please be aware that make-up may reduce or block the effectiveness of the light. While the skin's permeability increases during the session, which improves the effect of skin care products and allows active ingredients to penetrate deeper, for maximum effectiveness of the session we recommend removing all make-up prior to use.
Do certain medications affect the results?
If you are taking medication or suffer from a skin disorder, please be aware that certain medicines may be photosensitive. That is, they may cause an adverse reaction when the body is exposed to light. A list that identifies many photosensitive medications, foods and ingredients should be on display in the salon. Always consult your physician if you have any questions or concerns.
