I have been meaning to do an update on this. I purchased a red light unit that was made for getting plants to bloom indoors, apparently the red light spectrum causes this reaction in plants kept indoors. It was the proper wave length, so there's no reason why it wouldn't work the same as the ones advertised for humans.
I didn't take before photos. What I've been doing is exposing one fore arm to the red light, about 1/2 inch away from the LED light source, making sure the other was covered by a blanket so it did not receive incidental light.
I'm into it about a month or so, its supposed to take 3 months to work. I started out exposing my arm at nite while I was watching TV for about 20 minutes at a time. Just positioned the unit at an angle and exposed my forearm roughly 1/2 an inch away. This was done once at nite, before bed, for about 2 weeks. Since then, I'm down to every other nite exposure, since I read that skin needs time to recover and rebuild collagen.
I have not noticed much of any change in my forearm.
I have, however noticed a change in the skin of my left hand... the skin is not as crepey as compared to my right.
Just for reference I am a 58 year old woman, hypothyroid corrected by medication, who is 2 years into menopause. I work out regularly, and eat clean, organic when I can find it. I take vitamins and supplements, no other medications. Other humans may have a different result if your stats are different from mine.
When I am done with the 3 month period, I will consider blogging about this with photos, provided there are positive results to share. Otherwise its not worth the effort.
thx for your interest!

New decade. Big world. Hello, 60!
Never underestimate the value of getting out of your own way.
no but would love to try it to see if it works on arthritis.
If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit. Charles Stanley
I have an ultra sonic hand held unit that I use for art pain. I don't know about redlight therapy, but the ultra sound one does work. It cost around $150.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotin ~~~Author Unknown~~~
