I bought this because I read a lot of information stating that LED lights stimulate collagen production. I would like to firm my face and neck, although it is not imperative just yet.

For many months after the treatment I could feel that my clothes fit better and I... READ MORE

Thanks for explaining that so clearly. READ COMMENT

I know this is an old post, but this may be useful for someone. A a lot of grow bulbs have full spectrum LED including UV / Ultraviolet. That is probably what damaged your skin. There is an nm range when using LED lights. The "good"... READ COMMENT
