Thank you for your question. The clinical data on LED light therapy clearly shows it to be safe and efficacious, but only under the correct conditions. By this I mean the device must have enough power and fluence and the patient must adhere to a strict regimen that takes several treatments before results are seen. Most papers showing a benefit from red and blue light treatments use devices that deliver at least 40-60mW/cm2 and with treatments delivered every other day for a month. Please look for a device on the market that fits these qualifications. Good luck.
