Does the red light technology such as that found in the Tanda Luxe really work. Can it truly increase collagen and elastin--enough to make a visual difference in your skin?
Does Red Light Technology Work?

Red Light Technology
Thank you for your question. There are many therapies to stimulate collagen, but there needs to be a significant percentage of collagen and elastin improved to visually observe the improvement. Red light therapy has minimal improvement as a collagen stimulator enough to actually see visual benefit. Instead, laser resurfacing would be recommended for best laser/light benefits in a collagen building procedure. Be certain to be under the supervision of a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon with expertise in laser surgery for the most effective and safe treatments. I hope this helps.
Red light technology
The red light stimulates a little bit of collagen. It does not have the same effect as IPL or laser treatments, but if used according to directions, it doesn't have any ill-effects.
