To get the most out of your light therapy device, it is important to follow the recommended usage instructions. Depending on the condition you are treating, you will use your device for a different length of time each day. It is important to find a consistent time that works for you and stick to it as much as possible. Below we have described the time required for a session, depending on the type of treatment (acne, anti-aging, pain relief, or oral care). In general, you will need to use the device for 3 to 25 minutes.

Below we will go over the recommended usage for the most common conditions treated with reVive light therapy.

Worth noting that you may not see results immediately

For acne treatment

reVive acne light therapy is based on the principle of eliminating bacteria located in the deeper layers of the epidermis. 

These bacteria can be difficult to remove, making this device an excellent product for this problem. By clearing away dead skin cells and stimulating the growth of new skin cells on the epidermis, light therapy is also able to reduce acne scars.

For acne treatment

πŸ“Œ How to use reVive light therapy for acne treatment:

  • Thoroughly cleanse your face and remove all make-up. 

Moisturizers and cosmetics may contain sunscreen, which blocks the wavelength range of light and can reduce the effectiveness of light therapy.

  • Turn on the device and select the acne treatment setting (blue and red light).
  • Place the device on your face, making sure that the problem area is evenly lit.
  • Wait 3 minutes and then move the device to another area if necessary.

If you are treating the area near the eyes, you should avoid shining light on your eyes or wear protective goggles.

  • Use the device twice a day.
The acne treatment reVive collection has solutions to meet unique skincare needs, from spot treatment devices to wider coverage panels.

For anti-aging

Aging is a problem that can only be delayed, but not avoided. However, we can control this to a great extent by reVive light therapy. Red and infrared LED is designed to combat premature aging. It penetrates deep into the layers of the skin and makes it elastic and fresh.

For anti-aging

πŸ“Œ How to use reVive light therapy for anti-aging:

  • Cleanse the skin of the face and other parts of the body (for example, the neck or decollete) where you want to use the device.
  • Turn on the device and select the anti-aging treatment setting (red and infrared light).
  • Place the device to your face if it is a portable device, or if it is a LED panel β€” place it at arm’s length (about 30 cm) making sure that the problem area is lit.
  • The session should last at least 5-8 minutes.
  • Use the device twice a day.

With the reVive light therapy device, you can treat the following conditions:

βœ” Neck pain and stiffness;

βœ” Shoulder soreness, for example, from sitting at a computer;

βœ” Upper back, such as after a workout;

Daily oral care is just as important as any other part of the body.

And blue light without ultraviolet radiation will increase the effectiveness of teeth whitening products.

  • Clean your mouth.

β€œI’ve been dealing with rosacea for years, but after 2-3 weeks of using this product, my skin looks so much better. My face is soft and smooth; it’s like I’m glowing! reVive treatment has definitely made a difference in my skin’s appearance, and I’m so grateful to have found it.”

β€” Janet, WI

β€œI’m so glad I finally found reVive light therapy! It was the only thing that worked for me after trying everything else. My cystic acne was two huge painful lumps deep under my skin and nothing would pop them because they were too far down. It got worse instead of better with lotions or medication, but then I used reVive. Within 3 days both pimples grew considerably smaller and less painful, and within a week they were gone. I’m completely satisfied with the result.”

β€” Gloria, CO

β€œWhen I first saw the results of reVive light therapy, my jaw dropped. For years medicine and creams have not been able to solve my acne problem but after just one use it almost was gone! The next morning when I woke up my skin looked fabulous.

The results of reVive light therapy are amazing! Not only did it help me get rid of my acne, but it also helped to improve my skin tone and reduce wrinkles. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a solution to their skin problems.”
