LED update: my second treatment

May 3, 2008 Reviewed by Marta 6 Comments
Four days ago I had my second LED treatment. The first was a month ago.  My esthetician, Ildi Pekar, uses the Lightwave LED machine. The treatment, which lasts 20 minutes, comes after a little microdermabrasian and an intensive microcurrent session. It is followed by a cooling bast of oxygen.

This regime is fairly gentle and it is certainly non-invasive. Yet the results are really tangible: clearer and firmer skin, fading sun spots. Actually, there is more. I think I do look a bit fresher and younger. Enthusiastically recommended.

    <p>Sorry, I forgot to mention the home devices. I believe that a reader mentioned trying DPL LED for $349. I would need to do more research before recommending anything because they could do more harm than good.</p>

    <p>Probably depends where you are - in New York its typically about $125 per session.</p>

    <p>Marta,<br />
    What does the LED treatment cost? And are there any home devices that one can buy that will do the same thing?</p>

    <p>I ask because I had a treatment this weekend, I could swear that it lessened the redness of my roseacea, but I can't tell if that is just wishful thinking.</p>

    <p>Thinking about it objectively, it doesn't seem like 20-30 minutes of LED light should have that much of an effect, but looking in the mirror, it obviously does. I guess I'll keep them up once a month for now, and see what happens.</p>

    <p>Marta, did you complete your series of these treatments? Overall, still recommended? </p>
