The Hydraskincare is a bestseller becaue it combines the best skin wavelengths in a rubberized wrap you can use on your body as well as your face.
Red and infrared trigger collagen production, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Red, infrared and blue reduce signs of acne. Blue light kills the P acnes bacteria.
Yellow light has been shown in some studies to reduce redness.
Please be aware that there is no such thing as a 7-color photobiomodulation red light therapy device. When manufacturers combine colors such as red and blue, you are getting red and blue, NOT purple. The wavelengths in 7-color domes are silly and don’t make sense. Always look for individual wavelengths and not visible colors created as optical illusions by combining two colors.
- 640 nm red
- 423 nm blue
- 583 nm yellow
- The 690 nm specification in the Amazon listing is a mistake. I spoke to the company, it is 830 nm, which is perfect for collagen production. Note that you cannot see infrared.
The Photon comes with a stand to hold the wrap over the face. Use the wavelengths individually or at the same time. If you are worried about a pigmentation response (it is rare but it can happen) then do not use infrared.
If you are comparing this to the CurrentBody Dermalux Flex MD Light Therapy, the difference is irradiance. You are saving money on the Photon over the CurrentBody because the device takes 30 minutes per session to send the sufficient quantity of photons to the skin. The CurrentBody has higher irradiance and shorter treatment times.
The Hydraskin Photon Dome is the budget option for the reduction of wrinkles, fine lines, redness and acne.
