Will it give me a tan?

No, LED Phototherapy does not contain the UV rays that stimulate the melanin in the skin to produce a ‘suntan’ effect. LED waves are very different. These stimulate hydration and blood circulation and will give your skin a healthy and radiant glow.

Can in go in the sun after?

There is no need to avoid sun exposure as LED does not make your skin photosensitive. It is safe both before and after sun exposure and can even help sun damage. However, we always recommend minimising sun exposure and use of a good quality, high protection sunscreen.

Does it produce vitamin D?

No, it won’t make your body produce vitamin D, as it does not use UV light. The body’s natural production of vitamin D is in response to UV light which converts cholesterol found naturally in the body to vitamin D3. 

Can it be used on the body?

Though mainly used on the face, it is also suitable for use on the body. For example, acne can be targeted on the neck/décolleté and eczema on the hands can be improved.
