Truth Vitality Lux Renew is a hand-held, FDA-cleared anti-aging device designed to diminish wrinkles and fight acne. Safe and easy to use at home, Lux Renew combines skin-plumping ultrasound technology with wrinkle-repairing red LED and blue LED light therapy for control of breakouts and acne. This unique 3-in-1 device will improve the skin’s natural collagen, minimize fine lines, reduce redness and broken veins, and destroy pore-clogging bacteria.

Created in direct response to feedback from the Truth In Aging community, Lux Renew’s effectiveness is backed by a successful 12-week clinical trial, as well as TIA product reviews from women just like you. It’s also the only multi-functional device equipped with both ultrasound and LED technology that’s been cleared by the FDA. You’ll see immediate results — so give it a try and order now! Used with a topical gel or serum, Truth Vitality Lux Renew works painlessly and effectively on both the face and neck, and is suitable for all skin types. The red LED light and ultrasonic waves firm and smooth the skin — leveling wrinkles and evening out skin tone — while the blue LED wavelengths penetrate the pores to clear blemishes and prevent breakouts. Lux Renew is safe, effective, and easy to use, delivering dermatologist-grade results from the comfort of your own home. And it’s the only device of its kind that’s cleared by the FDA!

Ultrasound: There are five ultrasound settings. As the ultrasound waves pass from the treatment head into the skin, they prompt the vibration of the surrounding tissues, particularly those that contain collagen (note: you will not feel any vibration or tingling). Ultrasound improves the skin’s elasticity and firmness.

Red LED Light: Red light wavelengths improve the skin’s barrier function and enhance the skin’s ability to generate new collagen, helping to reduce wrinkles, rosacea, and broken veins. By targeting water layers on elastin, facial wrinkle levels can be significantly reduced.

Blue LED Light: Blue light wavelengths penetrate the skin and produce singlet oxygen, which destroys acne-causing bacteria.

Your Take...

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I have been using this device for greater than 6 months now and feel that its time to give a fair review. I am a huge fan of this device. I LOVE the ultrasound. My marionette lines have decreased and did so within the 1st week of treatment. I have also begun to use the US mode over my lip lines (smokers lines they're sometimes called) and they have also reduced noticeably! I am 42. Im telling you it works. Buy it!!
    My only complaint is that the instructions/comments here say that its safe to use the US mode over your neck but the instruction manual states not to use over carotid and laryngeal and pharyngeal muscles. A little diagram in the book on how to use safely on the neck would be helpful.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    This is such a wonderful device! I already left review, but I want to add once again that I am thrilled. In addition to regular use, I began to use it as a ultrasonic infuser for my serums and creams (like JeNu, which I don't have). I put my serum or cream, just drop or two on device, then turn on ultrasound mode and than use for one minute on each area of my face. I noticed that it makes my favorite skincare brands work better & faster. It increase absorption and I do not spend unnecessarily too much of expensive serums. Besides, serum and cream are completely absorbed by certain parts of the face (where I want them), rather than absorbed by the skin of my fingers.

    Wanted to update you, Marta & the TIA community--I've taken yet ANOTHER page out of your (Marta!) "DIY" playbook...I've started adding ADSM Beverly Hills Glycolic Acid and/or Ultra Firming Cream (mostly BOTH) TO the Vitality Gel when using the RED/BLUE LED functions. LOVE the Gel, but wanted even MORE "umph", 'plumping', and skin restoration while using+after Vitality Lux Renew sessions.

    What can I say? The ALREADY amazing device seems to be working even better for keeping my forehead expression lines (my worst), "11" lines, and neck lines at bay. Thank you for introducing this new line (ADSM Beverly Hills) to the TIA store.

    I DO have one question! The Baby Quasar PLUS still sells like hotcakes in other skin care circles. PRICE ASIDE, Marta do you have any opinion on how this device might measure up to YOUR Truth Vitality Lux Renew (ALSO FDA-APPROVED+PATENTED like the Baby Quasar, the original one of which has been around a while)? Not looking to spend the $$, but am curious as it seems to pop up in many celebrities' skin care regimens....Thank you!!

  • Hi Sandra
    The buzzing sound you hear is very faint and simply the motor of the device going. The device only contains blue and red LED -- the third feature is ultrasound and does not light up the LED panel. Shoot us an email at so we can send some tips and suggestions on how you can get the most out of your device to treat your concerns!

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I bought Truth Vitality Lux Renew 9 months ago and that's my opinion about it. I think nothing else can achieve the results I got on my skin in the last 9 months but red light therapy. It's the best investment one can make. It's something basic and even I think if you combine it with the cheapest skin care products it will give you far better results than just the most expensive ones on their own.
    I can say most of the products sold here are really really good and what will work for you depends on many factors. I've tried 7-8 different brands and my own sympathies go to Sciote products. But I believe that any decent skin care product /even if it's not among the ones sold here/ combined with Truth Vitality Lux Renew would give you results you wouldn't believe. At any age.
    I've tried using it for 30 minutes every day and I think it does even better. I just can feel how some little parts on my skin get alive and they just want more of that red light. An indispensable skin care product full stop

  • Hi Sarah, yes it can be used on thinning hair. I think red LED has the best effects, you can also try ultrasound on any setting. many estheticians use LED and ultrasound on clients that have had fillers. Both technologies work by emitting very subtle waves that vibrate the water around the skin cell. There is no heat emitted and no impact on artificial fillers.

  • Hi Marta,

    I have bought the device and I have some questions I thought I'd ask here since others may have the same.

    I read a comment about the device promoting hair growth, is that true for those experiencing balding? And which setting does this?

    Is this product ok to use with fillers such as radiesse and juvaderm? Another person already asked this question but I'm curious if you can elaborate why you don't think it's an issue.


  • Hi Cheryl
    The Lux Renew's red LED can support hair growth -- not reduction or elimination.

  • This is not a review but a question. The Lux device uses red LED light aas described; what type of LED is used by LUX in hair reduction/elimination?

  • Hi Mel
    When using the device in ultrasonic mode, it's important to keep the device flush against skin and moving in an upward direction. You can use LED in any direction you'd like.

    I hope this helps!

  • Owned one for little over a week now. Can I go circular motions on one section of the face as opposed to the one way direction?

  • Hi Pete, ultrasound and LED work at a deeper level than a topical serum. For example, ultrasound waves cause a rapid oscillation of cell tissue and fluid, which may stimulate an intracellular cascade resulting in increased fibroblastic activity and collagen formation. There is more on how ultrasound works here:

    And more on how LED works here:

  • Hi Marta does this device stimulate deeper collagen then say topical serums etc?

  • Hi Alex, you could if you have the time and inclination. There may be a law of diminishing returns though - by which I mean I don't know if doubling up sessions, doubles results. But if you try it, let us know.

    As for Tina's question, it can be used on the body but it was created to be used on the face and neck/decollete. The ultrasound is 3Mhz for the face (1Mhz would typically be for the body). I am not sure what you would hoping to achieve, perhaps some firming, but this is definitely not a slimming tool.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    Hi Marta,

    Are you able to use this more than once a day?

  • I would like to know please can this be used on other areas of the body. I have lost a lot of weight and have lose skin on my face, yet also areas such as belly, upper thighs, the behind and breast area. Is it safe to use it on those areas as well and have you seen good results with those areas at all or has it been tested for that?

    Thank you!

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I use it for about two, three weeks and I love it! Ultrasound really strengthens contours of the face and I am thrilled by effect of blue light. I have annoying pimples before and during period, so I fought them with retinol cream, but as the sun is getting stronger I want to throw out retinol from my daily routine during the summer, so the blue light is salvation for me. Just one treatment and my face was clear next day. Ultrasound works well against my bags under the eyes and I noticed the lifting of the upper-lids. Also treatment is very pleasant, I do not feel any pain, just relaxing light massage. Unfortunately I do not have time to treat individual zones for more than two minutes, but this amount of time still works for me. I am using it 3 times per week.

  • Hi Barbara, I would definitely encourage you to continue. Three weeks and only one of the functionalities is not much to judge results on. You should use both LED and ultrasound on the face and neck where needed, 3-4 times a week. Some people see results very soon, for others it will take several months. The results from our clinical trials, which are really great, are after 12 weeks - a realistic timeframe to see an impact on signs of aging that have been appearing over decades.

  • I am possible one of the few (or maybe only) reviewers that does not love the Lux Renew. So I have some questions. My overall issue is skin that is less than tight in the neck area. Is the LED used for that area? Have not yet used the LED.

    Secondly, how long does one have to use the device before any kind of changed are noted? I used it pretty regularly for about 3 weeks; but didn't notice anything and I've become discouraged.

    Any advice would be appreciated. I hate that I spent the money and I'm not using the device.

  • Hi Meg, you can most definitely use it for maintenance with Ultherapy and it can also be used on the arms and above the knees.

  • Question. I have moderate skin laxity on my face. I have consulted with a Nurse for Ultherapy. Does this have as good results? It is obviously, a lot cheaper! If I go with the Ultherapy would this device be safe to use for prevention and up-keep? May I use on other parts of the body, such as arms and above knees? Or is there a larger device for the rest of the body? Thanks for your help :)

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    This is an impressive anti-aging product. I saw an immediate improvement after my first treatment. The area around the eyes and temple is a particular challenge because of the delicate skin, but the Lux Renew had a positive result which was so surprising as it was immediate. The rest of the face also plumped up. I am delighted.

    Thank you.

  • Hi Alisa, yes you can use the device for forehead lines. I have personally found it very helpful for this. It will not make dark sports worsen. The water-based gel is the Truth Vitality Treatment Gel that is pictured on the right.

  • Marta,
    This is a new facial concept and costly yet reviews are very favorable. This is a question since no place to ask. If I want to minimize deep forehead (motion lines), will this product work to minimize these? What product is it folks are talking about that is water soluable to use in conjunction with it. I also have darkened skin spots due to Estrogen replacement. Read above where someone asked if it would make this worse but didn't see an answer. Please clarify how much of results for creases and finer wrinkles I can expect and product to use with it. This is a very good site.
    Thank you for your time and look forward to your reply.

  • Hi Deborah, yes it can safely be used with fillers. We always encourage people to check in with the physician the performed the procedure as we cannot be aware of exactly what was involved. But in general there shouldn't be a problem.

  • Can this device be used with fillers or will it break down the juva derm.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I wanted to give the Truth Vitality Lux Renew a good long trial before I submitted this review! And, I am hooked!! I took a "page" out of one of Marta's comments and have added the Sevani Rose Hyaluronic Age Defying Tonique with the Red LED function.

    Initially, I started using the Lux Renew when I was diagnosed with four fused (carpal) bones in my right (dominant) hand. The ultrasound function with the Gel was a Godsend for the pain.

    I will admit, that I had to work myself up to adding 10 to 30 minutes to my daily schedule to get the maximum use (FOR ME!) out of the Lux Renew--on my face and the outer part of my eyes. I started with 10 minutes on the Red LED, concentrating on my forehead (rife with DEEP crevices/expression lines). I am also training myself NOT to crease my forehead when I start really getting into a conversation. In my career, I've also worked as a lobbyist in D.C. and been a therapist (as a pain management physician), both of which mandate acute attention to detail and the conversation, more LISTENING than speaking, and quick, animated responses. So, I earned my forehead creases and expression lines! I also have had very deep naso-labial lines since I was five years old; these have only deepened with age. Lastly, despite my wonderful experience with Mito-Q, I am still battling (lessening) lines on my lower neck and around my lips.

    Because of several medical issues, I am not a candidate for Botox (PRP would be my only option to medically treat my forehead expression lines outside my home). I am not a big fan of either, but have no issues with those who choose to go those routes. But, when I discovered the Lux Renew and started using it faithfully EVERY day, I've made SIGNIFICANT inroads into a smoother forehead (something I NEVER thought would change!) and an overall smoother face.

    In the morning, I turn on the last evening's 15-20 minute podcast of the evening news and try to maintain a 15- minute Red LED session before I start the day. I've found that when I arrive home, that after washing and toning my face, a great way to unwind and feel re-freshed is to use the Red LED for at least another 10-15 minutes. As with everything else, working these two sessions into my day (with multi-tasking) has actually NOT bitten into my time! And I am DEFINITELY seeing a difference! So far, I've experienced no redness, irritation, or other untoward effects. Here's to a GREAT home, FDA-approved device that has made an enormous difference; adding the Sevani Rose Hyaluronic Age Defying Tonique has made just that much more of a difference!

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    Oh my God, I love,love,love this handheld product, It only took me a few times on ultrasound to tighten the skin under my shin. It is awesome. use it 3 times a week. Thanks Marta for this, it is awesome........

  • 5 stars 4 out of 5

    Wished I had taken a before and after picture for this very early "preview" but I felt I had to write something for my initial impression - after 24 hours.

    Treated forehead with special emphasis "11" line area with red led then switched to ultra sound mode for about 7 minutes total. I did not get the recommended gel yet ( ordered) but used a drugstore water / mineral oil based cream with supposed collagen ingredients.

    You know that "puffiness" between the two lines? Well the next day I looked in the mirror and it had just about flattened out. The left line was much improved, not as deep set and returned to a fine line and the right line had slightly faded.

    After my 3rd treatment ( three treatments in two days) The 3 horizontal lines on my forehead faded to a noticeable result . Working well for me. I use the highest setting for the U/S mode and do pause at times at targeted spots for up to 45 seconds. At times the head of the device does get a little warm ( highest setting) if held there too long but that's fine with me I just slowly move to another area.

    I've decided to add a retinol containing product this evening and then use red led light over it. I'll update another time as I am also interested to see if this will help with mild rosacea on face though the device is not intended for that purpose.

  • Can the red LED light make my hyper-pigmentation worse. I have dark spots on both cheeks.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I will admit I am a beauty product junkie. I'm 60 years old, but people say I look to be in my forties. I have always tried to take care of myself and have tried many products in my quest to preserve or improve my looks. However, I also try to be frugal with my choices. I have, in the past, chosen some "promising" products that ended up being "duds" and a waste of money, even some that received good reviews.(So far I've not been disappointed with any purchases from this site.)
    In all fairness, I will add that maybe not all products work the same for every one, as we are all different in one way or another. Moving right along.... Truth Vitality Lux Renew is one product with which I am NOT disappointed! After only three uses I am already noticing a firmness and plumpness to my skin that was not there before, in spite on my use of other very good serums and creams.

    The only drawback, I would say, for me, personally, is I really dislike wearing the goggles because they cloud my vision and kind of bother my eyes. However, I know they are essential to prevent damage to my vision, so I will definitely wear them. While they are not overwhelmingly too big, I find I have to readjust them upward a little, re-positioning the lower edge just under my lower lashes in order to treat my under eye wrinkles/bags, an area which is highlighted in the instruction book as an area to be treated with the LED lights. But if the goggles are centered over my eyes, that area is not reachable. So, just a little fiddling around but...I will gladly do so, because after just one treatment I noticed that under eye area being a little less saggy. So I'm thinking how much better it will be months from now!

    I'm hoping the LED lights will also plump and tighten my neck and jawline as well. The ultrasound mode cannot be used on the front of the neck because of possible damage to the larynx and pharynx ? (I've ask for more detailed information on the science of this in comments section for this product). However, the ultrasound can be used just below the chin and along the jawline, and I think, along the sides of the neck below the ears? I would like more info on that too.

    Overall, I'm giving it five stars because it's easy to use, (with exception of the goggles having to be fiddled with), and there is almost immediate gratification with noticeable plumpness and firmness after only one treatment and it gets better with each treatment. Hopefully, that will continue. So far, I am very impressed. And back to being frugal....I got this at a huge discount when Marta was offering 56% off on her birthday, (Happy Birthday, Marta!), plus I had enough points to subtract another $15. Cha-ching! Thank you, Marta, for having such great products you have personally reviewed and for offering great discounts all the time!

  • Hi Kimberly, please contact customer service - - via email and we can send you an updated instruction manual where this has been clarified.

  • I have a question on the length of time to use the LED red light. On page 9 of the instruction manual it says "a single session takes 15-19 minutes" but on page 10 it says if you are treating multiple areas then each area must be exposed for 19 minutes. That's an awfully long time if I do each eye area, forehead and cheeks. Can you advise?

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I am still on my Ultra Renew Plus device. Over the last two years I have used it regularly, and I am very happy with the result. I enjoy the "massage"-time app. 3 times a week, and during the last year (I am 55) I have received several comments on the radiance and "youth"-impression of my facial skin. The skin looks healthy, with some lines, but they are soft and not very deep. I have no doubt that the Ultra Renew should have most of the credit for that.

    I am very tempted to invest in the Lux-edition, and definitely will, when my Plus-device is a little more "worn-out".

    A happy and whole-heartedly recommendation from me!

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    This device, along with the Truth Vitality treatment gel is WONDERFUL!! I have the prior version of the device and know that every time I use it, my face and neck will look better afterwards. It's easy to use. If you're on the fence trying to decide if it's worth it - it is. You'll never regret your decision to get the LED+Ultrasound. I also recommend the treatment gel because it works perfectly with the lux renew and as a mask by itself.

  • Hi Julie

    The device plate is stainless steel.

  • Hi, could you tell me the material of the device's plate (the part which makes contact with the skin)? Is it titanium?

    Many thanks!

  • Hi Alex, retin A can make you more sensitive to light, so you should do a patch test. The best thing would be avoid using LED on your skin right after applying retin A. For example you could use your retinol cream at night and LED in the morning. It sounds as if you are already using an RF device with retinols and not having a problem. Also if you want intersperse your LED/ultrasound sessions with RF that would be fine.

  • Hi Martha & TIA Team,

    Absolutely love & appreciate your website and amazing range of products. Thank you for setting such high standards and for inspiring us all to have an informed and health-centred approach to aging gracefully. Quick question from me: Can I use this device whilst also on a RETIN A beauty regimen? it possible to combine Radio Frequency, ultrasound & LED (the TIA Truth Vitality Lux Renew with LED and Ultrasound ) whilst using a daily RETIN A cream (at night only). Just wondering if all of these treatments are compatible? I thank you in advance for your quick response.

  • 5 stars 4 out of 5

    I've been using my lux renew for about 2 weeks now and thought I'd leave a preliminary review and report back in a couple of months when it's full effects hopefully kick in.
    I've been using the red LED most days and the ultrasound every other day. I've already started noticing a tightening around my forehead and mouth/nose area. It was most noticeable whilst walking outside on a sunny day without my sunglasses; my forehead felt significantly tighter than it normally would whilst squinting.
    I'm only 26 but I have a very computer-heavy career which tends to make me look 'tired' and this tool is really making me look brighter and fresher- I've even had people commenting on how I don't look 'so exhausted' anymore.
    It takes dedication but I'd like to avoid sticking needles in to my face for as long as possible and the lux renew seems like a good way to accomplish this.
    The price is also really reasonable given that it provides you with three tools in one.

  • Hi Gloria
    Great to hear you love your Lux Renew. The red LED light will help to some extent with scaring. Exfoliate, red LED, repair serum (for example, epidermal growth factors)

  • I just got my Lux Renew w LED and Ultrasound unit and am excited to start using it. I had the opportunity to undergo 1 session of laser treatment and 4 sessions of ultratherapy 2 weeks ago. The combination of LED and ultrasound in one device is just too good to be true. I will posting another review in a couple of weeks after I try my new device.

  • Hello Melody. Your comment was not published as it compared this device to Ultherapy and thermal ultrasound. Lux Renew does not work thermally. I have addressed this question in comments, responses to questions and in articles. You may find this article helpful as it explains the differences.

  • I commented earlier about evidence that these devices cause long term damage and I noticed it wasn't approved. Why? That seems suspicious. If you stand by the safety and long term effects of this product you should be able to back it up.

  • Hi Benjamin, that's a good question. I had to go off and do some thinking about this. Human skin is 2mm-3mm and varies on the body - 0.5mm for eyelids and closer to 3mm on the back. The face is about 1.5mm - although this varies by genetics, age and sex. Men's skin is about 25% thicker than women's (again it will vary as all aging skin becomes thinner - even men's). But say your skin is between 1.5mm and 2mm. Ultrasound on this machine penetrates to about 2mm. So I'd say it should work on men's skin

  • Hi Marta,
    Basically all of the reviews I've read on the truth vitality lux renew have been from female users; I was wondering, given that men tend to have thicker skin, would it have the same/similar effects, or is it purely for female use?

  • Hi Jessica, the device cannot be used on the eyelids in any mode. It can be used on the brow bone, under eye and crow's feet.

  • Can this be used for hooded and saggy eyelids? If not what would you recommend?
    Would the Truth Rejuvenate At-Home Microcurrent be better?

    Sorry that this is not a review. I can't post a comment because that option isn't available.

  • Hi Michele, the problem is that there is absolutely no research to back up green light and hyperpigmentation and when we tried it on an earlier device we got very little anecdotal evidence back from users. So we're passing on green light for now.

  • Hi Marta this looks good but I was wondering if green light would work better for pigmentation? If so do you have any plans for a device to address this issue? Talika duo has green and red but is a flimsy device for $500. Whats your opinion of green LED? The benefits of red and blue as per your own device are well documented.

  • Hi, I wanted to know apart from using this device on your face could it also work for the problem area above the knee, where the skin begins to sag a bit, and the wrinkles that begin to form?

  • 5 stars 4 out of 5

    I'm looking for an alternative to the Treatment Gel, as I am on a budget and already spend far too much $$$$ on TIA! Can you PLEASE recommend a good alternative? I know you state anything water based with water as the 1st ingredient but that's VERY difficult to find - trust me, I've done countless searches on line.

    I was looking into organic 100% Aloe Gel but wasn't sure of the water content - would it conduct appropriately??

    Of course I will buy the Treatment Gel when I finances allow but right now I've had to stop using the device due to lack of conductive gel. Please help!

    Thanks so much!

  • Hi Sarah
    The instruction manual gives a detailed regimen for the red LED mode (as well as for the other modes). A recommended session is up to 19 minutes, or you can do about four minutes per section - a section would be one side, cheek-to-jaw; or the forehead say. You can work on the whole face and neck or just focus on areas you are most concerned about if you are time-pressed.

  • Hi, I was just wondering how long I should use the LED for? Thank you.

  • Hi Stacey, it will help fade them over time. How long will depend on the depth of tone, whether they are seasonal (just appear when you have been in the sun) or year round. All hyperpgimentation requires patience before results are seen and it may take several months of regular use.

  • I have freckles - does the LED work on lightening those?

  • Thanks Marta for your helpful reply

  • Hi Annie
    That is correct. For example I will treat my right upper lip, below the lip and right marionette line area as one section for four minutes and then move to the left side for four minutes. Then the next evening I will do my right crow's feet and right forehead as one section for four minutes and then treat the left side. Although the protocol for the clinical trials rigidly followed the instructions, the device was designed to fit in to the user's needs and time available. In other words, find what works for you. All you need to remember is that the results are cumulative and will slowly build over time. The basic requirements are discipline (regular use, fitting what you can into your schedule) and patience.

  • Thanks Marta for your reply.

    So if I was treating say the marionette lines I wouldn't need to spend four minutes on it as I had thought? As the marionette lines would be considered part of a section, such as the left side of my face?

    And with the clinical trial photos the area shown such as marionette lines will not have been worked on for four minutes and 15 minutes used for the rest of the face? Apologies if I have got this wrong. I am just still really confused with the timings. Many thanks

  • Hi Annie, a section would be one side of your face, or your forehead. I should point out that there is no speculation as to what goes on in a clinical trial. The participants must strictly adhere to the instructions for use (that were FDA cleared, by the way, after having undergone a separate consumer useability and comprehension test. The clinical trials were carried out by a certified and independent lab, and independently audited.

  • I have used this for about 4 weeks so far, averaging 5 times a week. I am only using the ultrasound setting. I have noticed some very subtle firming, but so far just very subtle, hoping to see more effect after a full 12 weeks

    I did contact the helpful customer support about her how long to use it for, as I am still not clear. The booklet says to use it about four minutes on each area and I am still not clear what constitutes an area. There has been the general advice to use it for 19 minutes for ultrasound. Customer Service advised if i want to target an area well I should give it four minutes minimum and then devote 15 minutes to the rest of my face.

    I am wondering if the before and after pictures on this site whether the person has devoted four minutes to the small area shown. If this is the case then I think if a person wants to see results they might have to be prepared to spend longer than the 19 minutes mentioned on here. As four minutes on each area is longer than 19 minutes. So my advice is this may well have some good subtle effects over time but be prepared you may need to schedule significant time to achieve it.

  • Hi Sylvie, yes that is correct. Our community of reviewers test other brands and give an objective evaluation. For example, we have a red LED light in our Lux Renew and also sell - because it is a good product - the Quasar MD. We are also currently testing the Jennu ultrasound device and will have a review of that shortly.

  • Hello Martha,
    I would like to understand. You evaluate other people machine and product and you also sell some yourself...

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I've been using the Truth Vitality Lux Renew for almost 6 weeks now and the results I've gotten so far are amazing and I'm thrilled to see what this little machine can accomplish over time. The ultrasound seems to affect the skin in a way I have seen no serum or cream do. It seems to slowly rebuild my old face. I see an over all firming and filling out of lines and under eye hollows. I've been using the ultrasound setting for 19 min every morning and the red light for about 10 minutes. I do it in the morning, while having breakfast and reading the news on my computer, so it really hasn't increased the time I need to get ready in the morning.

  • Hi Tara, Ultherapy works thermally - it gets hot. Our device is not thermal. You read more on ultrasound, how it works and those differences here:
    You must keep the device moving in ultrasonic mode at all times. You can move it very slowly, but it must not be held in one place.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    Review and question~i love both devices I've purchased from you, the Lux Renew and Microcurrent device. There seem to always be newer and 'better' products coming out on the market and lately I'm hearing a lot about Ultherapy. I realize this is a professional procedure and it uses ultrasound. What is the difference between using an at home device with Ultrasound vs getting Ultherapy? What constitutes the spa treatments efficiency compared to an at home device? Is it the depth at which the ultrasound reaches or something else? Also if I hold your ultrasound device for several seconds on one area, is that detrimental or helpful or does it matter at all? I want to get the most out of all my devices from TIA.
    Thanks Marta!

  • Hi Marina, the device is FDA cleared for mild to moderate acne (see the packaging and instructions for definitions). Blue LED light is proven to help acne. There is more information here:
    Do ensure that your daughter wears the goggles when using the device near her eyes. I would be hopeful that with regular and disciplined use, she'll get some relief.

  • I hope to make this a review very very soon, until then I have a question. My 16 yr old niece has terrible acne that breaks my heart but she has such a positive attitude and confidence and only covers it up for photos and special occasions. Your video speaks of occasion break outs and blemishes that we all get, she has a face full of them top to bottom and her neck and chest, dermatologists have tried everything including hormone adjustments. How much affect can we expect the blue LED have for her? And since she is so young is there anything else I should be aware of to caution? Thank you.

  • Hi Jennifer, its the same technology. In a spa you are more likely to get a large panel that covers the entire face and some fancy settings - eg my esthetician's machine can be programmed to alternate red and infra-red. But otherwise its the same thing.

  • How would the Truth Vitality Lux Renew compare to LED Photomodulation at a spa? Are they a similar kind of treatment?

    Thank you,


  • Hi Valentina, the gel needs to be used in a thick layer - like a face mask. If you want to use your serum, then you can as long as it is water based - with water being the first ingredient.

  • 5 stars 4 out of 5

    I use the Lux Renew daily each evening , but am wondering if I can just use this device with just my serums instead of the topical gel that seems to dry up too fast & then it's not as slippery as just using my serums. When a product is water based, does that mean that it has water listed in the ingredients? That's where I'm confused.

  • Hi Lucy, you can use any water based product providing that it has enough "slip" for the device to glide comfortably over your skin.

  • Hi Martha,

    Can I use the ultrasound with pure Aloe Vera?

  • Hi Sandra

    You can also use the ultrasound, which will also help smooth out wrinkles and firm the skin. With ultrasound you must use a water-based gel to ensure the conductivity of the ultrasonic. You do not need to use anything with the LED.

  • Hi Brian, using device with Botox treatments will be fine. If in any doubt, double check with the physician that performed the procedure for you.

  • I am thinking of purchasing the Lux renew, but was wondering if it was safe to use on areas with botox? Will it effect the longevity of Botox?

  • 5 stars 4 out of 5

    I only use the red light on the there something better for the wrinkles on my face and neck? Also what kind of lotion should I use only skin and does it really matter if you use lotion?

    Thanks so much!

  • Hi Ray, of course you will never get the same results with an at-home device as you will with a professional treatment. But regular and disciplined use of the device will bring results as you have seen with the before/afters. If you have had an Ulthera, then Truth Vitality Lux Renew should certainly augment its results, improving upon them or at least providing maintenance.

  • This is not a review, but a question prior to purchase. Exactly 4 months ago I had af full face Ultherapy treatment which was very expensive (I will be making monthly payments for quite a long while to pay for it). I am waiting to see how much tightening has occurred after 6 months. At 4 months post treatment, I still see a problem with Marionette lines and bags under my eyes, although I must say the skin under my neck and chin seems to have gotten tighter. My question is: will your new device be a good device to help my Ultherapy results last longer while improving the areas where I still see a problem; that is since I definitely cannot afford another Ultherapy treatment 2 months from now, I am really hoping this device is the next best alternative. I am 60 years old, by the way.

  • Our device is safe to use on facial fillers as it does not heat up. Ulthera is ultrasound but it works by creating heat. Our ultrasound technology does not get at all hot and so cannot dissolve fillers. It works by creating a tiny vibration (that you cannot feel) to the water around the skin cells. You can read more on how ultrasound works here:

    You should always double check with the physician who performed the procedure.

  • Hi Marta
    Can you tell me if it's safe to use the device on areas with fillers (Juvederm)? I know that Ultherapy, which also uses ultrasound, is thought by some to dissolve them somewhat. I have ordered one, but am worried now in case I can't use it!
    Many thanks!

  • Hi MaryAnn, the technology doesn't really work by causing inflammation. There is a reverberation of water around the cells that prompts a signal to produce collagen. There is more on how ultrasound works and LED works in these two articles:
    Having said that, I cannot say whether you should or should not use this device with your medication and would strongly advise you to consult your prescribing physician.

  • This is a question prior to buying: I would like to know if the red light and ultrasound are effective if I am taking 5 mg of Prednisone a day on a long term basis. (I am a transplant patient. ) It is of course an anti-inflamatory and I believe the collagen production is based on causing a bit of inflammation to create more collagen. I don't know if the Prednisone would cancel out the benefits. Can you find out the answer to my question?

  • Hi Sylvie, thanks for the clarification. We have reviewed the Dermawand and you can read about it here: or find the article by typing Dermawand (one word) into our search tool at the top right of every page. It uses a different technology (radio frequency) that I didn't find effective during my test.

  • So sorry, I mispelled the name. It is Derma Wand. I am new with these machinses. Do not have a fortune to spend but at 60 I feel the need to do more than just creams and serum.

    Thank you so much for your reply!

  • Hi Clara, you can use both LED and ultrasound on the periorbital lines around the eyes, eg crow's feet and under the eyes. It is not advisable to use the device on the eyelids, although you can use the ultrasound on the brow bone just above the lids to help get a lift.

  • How do I improve the periorbital lines (upper and lower eyes) using the original Lux Renew? Would the red light be okay to use over the eyes? Please advise. Thanks.

  • greetings Marta, i've a question before i order. i have read , i thought! the difference between micro current & ultrasound. my concern is sagging, firming, lifting . i planned ordering device on first march until i read a review on FabOverFifty regarding the JeNu ultrasound device used & reviewed by founder of site Geri. i know it is not at all as the TIA site that i depend on for full truth. i value your opinion highly regarding this field. could you read a bit about the JeNu & tell me which would be better at lifting skin ? i do not fully understand which is more powerful, etc. also, if i read correctly regarding your micro current device that is the one best for sagging jawline etc over ultrasound? i simply am limited on budget & need to do my wisest in which to purchase! thank you so much

  • Hello! I was wondering if I understand correctly that it is an option to use the goggles with the red LED as vs must use with the blue. I used the goggles and they left a deep red area under both my eyes. I am hoping that it goes away as I have enough problems with bags, etc! I am hesitant to put them on again.

    Thanks in advance for your reply.

  • Marta,

    Just used this product for the first time. I used both the LED (red) for wrinkles and ultrasonic for sagging jaw line.

    I'd like to know if I am using it correctly.

    When I use the ultrasonic, I don't feel anything. I've had Thermage before and it was painful but worked. So I expected some pain. But I felt absolutely nothing. Does that mean it IS or IS NOT working.

    I am also unsure about the gel I am using and whether it is conductive. It should be as it is water-based aloe vera and mask-thick.

    As for the LED (red), even with the goggles on, I could see the light. Is that okay?

    One last question: The instructions guide says the LED (red) can be used in between the brows, where I have deep lines. However, I can't figure out how that is possible if one is wearing the goggles at the time.

  • Hi Kitty, the FDA did not find "an issue" with the prototype device. There were two hurdles that we had to cross. The first was that the engineering requirements are very stringent and we had to create a device that met them. The second is that there needs to be clinical evidence of the efficacy of all functionality. This did not exist for the green light or ionic modes and until such evidence is available those functionalities are not FDA cleared and so we could not include them in the new device. If your device is working well then I am pleased that you had the chance to get a prototype for a good price.

  • I have the ultra renew plus and gave the first one (original) to my daughter. My concern is that the ultra is not good or something dangerous. Like others in this pistol should I throw it away? It's disheartening to purchase a machine with rave reviews and find out it's no longer for sale because the FDA found an issue with it. I see the concerns re such questions have yet to be answered.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    Bought this about a year ago and have it beside my bed. Wash my face, moisturize and use this for two 19 minute cessions. Love the results. Glad I made the purchase.

  • Marta, thanks so much for answering my question. I feel much better about my Ultra machine now. Thanks for the prompt reply!

  • Hi Kimberly, the new device, the Truth Vitality Lux Renew, has been cleared by the FDA. This process required tweaks to the engineering and functionality changes that the Ultra Renew Plus didn't have. The Ultra Renew Plus was a prototype for the new device and I am pleased that you were able to get one and have been enjoying it. There's no reason to change if your device is working well. The reason why we discontinued it is because such devices require FDA approval and that has been conferred to the new device.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I like my Ultra Renew PLUS machine, but I am on a budget, and can't purchase a "new and improved" machine every time one comes out. So what I want to know, should I throw my Ultra Renew Plus out in the trash? I see you don't carry it. Does that mean it didn't work and there is no reason to continue its use? This depresses me when I spend that kind of money, and then several months later, see that it isn't even carried anymore. It sure doesn't inspire my confidence in buying one of these ever again.

    Please answer any of my concerns that you can, thanking you in advance. And thanks TIA, I learned most of what I know about skin care from you! Merry Xmas

  • Hi Sandra, you are right to be concerned as there is some research regarding blue light and the eyes (red light is fine). That is why we do caution that users wear goggles. Our goggles were FDA approved.

  • The more I read, the more I'm concerned about the blue light on these things damaging my eyes, especially with how often I use my Truth Renew Plus. Coupled with the fact that the goggles included with my device seem to not block very much light at all, I'm doubly concerned. Perhaps this is exactly why the FDA required the blue light to be closer to violet.

    Sorry, I wanted to leave a comment under 'comments' but the form isn't available to do so.

  • I purchased the previous device, the "Truth Renew PLUS Ultrasonic LED" which is almost the same but lacks the FDA seal (not important to me). I've only been using it a few weeks but already I can see a difference! The other part of doing business with TIA is that the customer service department is OUTSTANDING! I had some questions about my device & Preksha answered them all--detailed, fast, courteous and knowledgeable.
    With such a big investment, it was great knowing that the company stands solidly behind their products.
    Thank you!
    Ann H.

  • How is this different from the Truth Renew Plus?

  • I had done research on this product and I want to try it at home rather than going to medical spas and pay hundreds for one single treatment.

    Hi Marta,

    I received my new TVLR this week. I am wondering if you could please clarify where the unit can be used in each mode. I am particularly wondering--

    1. Can the ultrasonic mode be used on the neck and décolleté?

    2. Can the ultrasonic mode be used on arms and legs?

    3. Can the red led be used anywhere on the face (except eyes), neck, décolleté, arms and legs?

    4. Are results quicker/better with higher levels of the ultrasound mode.

    Thank you!

    Hi Marie, the results are cumulative - the more you use the device the better the effects over time.

    Are the results of using this device permanent or do they only last for a few hours?

    Hi Kevin, we don't provide output information. Output is a key measurement - and a very complex one - for diagnostic ultrasound and this is not diagnostic machine.

    Before I purchase this device, I would like to know the total output of the Ultrasound is. I realize it is 3MHZ, but I have not been able to find any information on the actual ultrasound output. Please Help.


Introducing Truth Vitality Lux Renew by Truth In Aging (VIDEO)

Watch this video to learn more about Truth In Aging's Lux Renew, which combines ultrasound and LED technologies to add vitality and plumping to the skin.

How does Truth Vitality Lux Renew diminish signs of aging and fight acne? Watch this instructional video to learn how Lux Renew penetrates deep to improve skin.

Duration: 0:40

When using the Lux Renew, how often should I plan to use the device?
For optimal results, we recommend using the Lux Renew a minimum of 3 to 5 times a week for 15-19 minutes each time.

Does it matter if I use the LED or Ultrasound first? Can I use them together in the same session?
The sequence in which you use ultrasound and LED should not affect your treatments. You cannot use both treatments simultaneously, however, you can use them in sequence.

Is it required to wear the goggles when using the LED function?
We caution that users always wear the goggles when using LED, particularly when using blue LED.

I am currently living outside of the United States. Am I able to use the device internationally?
The Truth Vitality Lux Renew comes equipped with a US power adapter (AC 100-240V). This voltage is compatible worldwide, but international customers will need to purchase a local adapter from their local hardware store to use outside of the US.

Does the Lux Renew come equipped with a warranty?
Yes! We provide a 1-Year repair guarantee. In the event that your Truth Vitality Lux Renew develops a fault within 12 months of purchase, please contact us.

Can the Lux Renew be used on the neck area?
The Lux Renew should not be used on the neck on individuals with overactive thyroids. Otherwise, it is fine to use the device on the neck area.

Can the Lux Renew be used if you’re pregnant?
No, the device should not be used if you are pregnant.

What are the technical specifications of this device?
Ultrasonic frequency: 3 MHz +/- 5%
Red LED: 650nm
Blue LED: 415nm
Adapter input power: AC 100-120V
Adapter output power: 15V, 400mA

How is this different from the Ultra Renew Plus/Truth Renew Plus?
The Lux Renew has been cleared by the FDA. This process required tweaks to the engineering and functionality changes that the Ultra Renew Plus/Truth Renew Plus didn't have. The Ultra Renew Plus/Truth Renew Plus was a prototype for the new device but there's no reason to change if your device is working well. The reason why we discontinued it is because such devices require FDA approval and that has been conferred to the new device.

Can the Lux Renew be used without a gel or serum?
When using the device in ultrasonic mode, a water-based gel or serum must be used. The gel or serum should provide enough "slip" for the device to glide comfortably over your skin.

When using the device in LED mode, it is advised to use antioxidants alongside LED because although LED is antioxidant over time, the short-term effects are pro-oxidant. You can read more on LED and anti-oxidants here

We recommend the Truth Vitality Treatment Gel which is suitable for use with ultrasound, LED, galvanic, and microcurrent treatments.

Is the Lux Renew safe to use on areas treated with fillers (e.g. Juvederm)?
Our device is safe to use on facial fillers as it does not heat up. Unlike Ultherapy (which produces heat and should not be used on areas treated by fillers), our ultrasound technology does not get at all hot and so cannot dissolve fillers. It works by creating a tiny vibration (that you cannot feel) to the water around the skin cells.
More information on how ultrasound works can be found here. We recommend always consulting the physician who performed the procedure prior to beginning Lux Renew treatments.

Can the Lux Renew help Ultherapy results last longer while improving areas still needing help?
Of course you will never get the same results with an at-home device as you will with a professional treatment. However, regular and disciplined use of the Lux Renew can bring results. If you have had Ulthera treatments, Lux Renew should augment its results, improving upon them or, at the very least, providing maintenance.

Is the Lux Renew safe to use on areas with Botox?
It is fine to use the Lux Renew with Botox treatments. If in any doubt, we recommend consulting the physician who performed the procedure prior to beginning Lux Renew treatments.

Can I use LED if I am using retinol as part of my anti-aging regimen?
If you are using a prescription retinol, we recommend consulting your prescribing physician. If you are using OTC retinol, please bear in mind that you may be increasing your skin's photosensitivity and we encourage you to conduct a patch test before using the red LED light. Consider spacing out the red LED and retinol treatments.


Quick User Guide:
  • Use on a clean, dry face without makeup.
  • Connect the handpiece to the power adaptor and plug into a power outlet.
  • The Ultrasonic mode and the LED modes cannot be used at the same time, however, they may be used consecutively.
  • A water-based, topical gel or serum must be used with Ultrasonic mode to ensure  conductivity. It is recommended that the water-based gel be applied to the thickness of a face mask
  • In Ultrasonic mode, the bars on the LCD display indicate the level of intensity. Start with the first level and increase if it is comfortable for you.
  • There are two LED lights: red = anti-wrinkle and acne treatment; blue = acne treatment. When using the LED mode, choose the setting accordingly. Note: LED does not require a water-based serum or gel.
  • The device will automatically switch off after 19 minutes. If you wish to continue your session after the 19 minutes, you must switch it back on.
  • For a shorter session, you can adjust the time. With your Lux Renew switched on, press MODE repeatedly to select Time in the display (it will flash). When Time is flashing, press SHIFT repeatedly to adjust to the time of your choice .
  • After use, a soft cloth should be used to wipe the device clean. Do not use water, chemical cleanser or dish detergent.
  • Precautions: Do NOT use Truth Vitality Lux Renew if you are pregnant or if you have an overactive thyroid.
