So the other day I totally caved and ended up buying the Expressionist LED light therapy device. You may have heard of it, it has been all over the internet lately.
And with very good reason.
LED light therapy is the newest and biggest trend in skincare at the moment. In days gone by one could go into a day spa and have expensive light treatment for around $200 a session. But there is a secret:
THE DEVICE YOU BUY FOR YOUR HOME IS EXACTLY THE SAME THING!
It’s all LED light. On various spectrums. Sure, they may have a bigger machine but it’s at the end of the day, the same stuff. So anyway, I caved in and went out and bought myself one of these little LED light devices. And what I found was that it’s great not just for my skin! So without further ado, here are three secrets that you may or may not know about your neat little LED device.
‘Tis the season right now to be buying people gifts. And let’s face it, gift-giving can be super stressful. The Expressionist device is basically the gift of beautiful skin, all wrapped up neatly in a little box. You can buy it online, and it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. And more, that guarantee at this time of the year only ends at the end of January, no matter when you buy it. That means that whoever you give it to, will have 30 days to use it, discover its amazingness, or return it if they absolutely have to. (Which I HIGHLY doubt will happen)
Yes, I know that the Expressionist is primarily a facial skincare device, but did you know that you can use it anywhere? LED light therapy has been proven to promote healing not just in the dermis and sub-dermis, but in many other issues too.
NASA used it for astronauts in space to help with the healing of muscles, ligaments, and bones. It has also been used to treat chemotherapy patients with great success. You can read more about project H.E.A.L.S here.
So we know that light therapy has been clinically proven to work. A while ago I broke my leg pretty badly. I ended up with two plated in my ankle, one on each bone. Obviously, with this sort of injury, I have quite a bit of residual pain, especially when I walk anywhere for a long time. So the other day while soaking in the tub, I had the bright idea to use my Expressionist device on my ankle. I have been doing this now for a week or so, and it works! Pain has diminished, and I have even seen a reduction in the scarring from the plates being inserted!
Many of us have heard of red light therapy. It is the most common one found in various devices both in professional medical circles and in skincare circles. But did you know that green and blue light each have various effects too?
The Expressionist device not only has the regular red light but also cooling blue light and even the much rarer green light setting too.
Red light, as we know, is great for increasing blood flow. It actually goes right down below the skin to affect the red blood cells in the veins of all the structures below. Have you ever held a red light torch in your hand and seen how the light reaches the there side of your hand? That’s how far it can penetrate. In skincare devices, red light treats wrinkles, scarring, fine lines and also lifts the skin by improving blood flow.
Blue light is cooling, and you can feel it on your device. It has been clinically proven to kill bacteria, resulting in a massive reduction in acne. It is also great for any wound that may need antibacterial treatment. Use it after you come home from going out to zap any nasty bugs that may be lurking on your hands or even shopping.
Green light brightens skin and removes all sorts of marks. I have white patches after my pregnancy, and I have seen a massive reduction in those since using the green light mode on the Expressionist.
So there you go! three things I bet that you didn’t know about your personal LED light treatment device. So what are you waiting for? If you don’t have one yet, go get one! Or even buy one as a gift for a loved one this season!
