Frequently Asked Questions
What is LED Light Therapy?
Photo rejuvenation or LED Light Therapy is the use of
various colors of light emitting diodes (LEDs) that create
an anti-aging effect on the skin. Exact wavelengths
of light emitted from LED's stimulate and energize cellular
activity, which in turn creates collagen and elastin for
Anti-Aging benefits. LED Light Therapy has become recognized
as one of the safest, quickest, and most affordable ways
to achieve younger-looking skin. It's referred to
by several different names including: Photo-Rejuvenation,
Anti-aging LED Light Therapy, LED Light Therapy or Red/Yellow
Is LED Light Therapy a laser?
The LED Light Therapy is not a laser treatment which
is why it is safe for home use or professional use.
Lasers utilize a highly focused and coherent beam of a specific
light frequency, and can generate enormous heat and energy
at the focal point. Light from LEDs is not focused,
is non-coherent, and generates no heat. LED Light
Therapy is non-invasive, with no down time, requires no
surgery, no harsh chemicals, no lasers, no numbing cream,
or recovery time.
LED Light therapy works, it's affordable and you can
use your spa-quality unit in the privacy of your own home
or in your health care facility. And it takes just
a few minutes a day to use. LED Light Therapy is safe
for all skin types and ages. It is today's natural
skin care at its finest.
What is the difference between Laser or LED?
LEDs produce light that is non-coherent, is not focused,
is monochromatic, and is based on spontaneous emission.
Lasers produce light that is coherent, is in a highly focused
beam, is monochromatic, and is based on stimulated emission.
Tina Karu (1998: The Science of Low-Power Laser Therapy)
states that "...the coherence of light is of no importance
in low-power laser clinical effects" and "the
primary difference between lasers and LEDs is that the laser's
coherent beam produces 'speckles' of relatively high power
density which can cause local heating of inhomogeneous tissues."
Currently researchers & scientists agree that LEDs
are effective in generating a response within living tissue
and hence has a therapeutic effect if used properly. NASA
has produced the best research documentation to date supporting
the effectiveness of LEDs to stimulate plants and human
tissue. Consult your physician if you use photosensitive
drugs, have any thyroid condition, are pregnant, or have
any concerns about using this product.
Is there any scientific proof of Photo Rejuvenation
or LED Light Therapy?
Unlike many technologies on the market today, LED Light
Therapy has been thoroughly tested, evaluated and validated
by hundreds of universities, medical labs and most importantly
NASA. There have actually been over 2000 reports and
documents written on this technology.
Is Photo Rejuvenation or LED Light Therapy safe?
Yes, it is safe and completely non-invasive. It
has been used for years in numerous medical procedures,
medical spas, the offices of aestheticians and dermatologists,
and by consumers around the world.
Are there any side effects or downtime involved from
No. There have been no reported adverse side effects
like redness or irritation from the treatment, and the light
does not damage skin in any way.
Will LED treatments hurt or be painful?
Not at all. Because there's no heat involved, there's
no pain! Unlike lasers or other ablative (skin harming)
treatments, LED treatments are non-thermal, non-ablative,
and non-invasive. Clients report no discomfort or
pain associated with LED treatments.
Is LED Light Therapy safe to use around my eyes?
LEDs are very bright and therefore it is NOT advisable
to look or stare directly into the light. No studies
have been found showing any harmful effects to the eyes
when using our product correctly. Keep the eyes closed
during use on the face or use the comfort goggles enclosed
and the light will not cause damage to the eye.
What actually happens during the treatment?
You will have to remove any makeup or sun block before
the treatment and you will also be asked to wear comfort
goggles. The light then should be positioned close (about
10-12 inches away) to your face or area to be treated for
5-10 minutes daily.
How do I prepare my skin before and after using the
Facial Secret unit?
Before use, simply cleanse your skin as usual.
Do not apply products prior to use. Use the unit on
clean skin only. After treatment you may apply
your favorite antioxidant or peptide-rich moisturizer.
It is also beneficial to apply daily sun screen to protect
How long until I see results?
Everyone's skin varies, but most people begin to feel
and see a difference after ten days to 2 weeks of daily
use. Often the first improvement noticed is that
the skin pores are becoming smaller, and for ladies, their
makeup starts going on much smoother. Because of
differences in damaged skin, from age, skin condition, diet,
alcohol consumption, smoking habits, etc., some people will
see the benefits almost immediately and others will need
more treatments. For collagen production and anti-aging,
you should see results in 3 to 4 weeks. However,
some individuals experience positive results in a shorter
timeframe. Skin texture and tone improve from the
first treatment. Pigmentation usually fades over
the course of 4 to 5 weeks or more of treatments.
The most important things to remember are is that the
Facial Secret technology works, so it's just a matter of
consistent daily use to determine 'How long will it take?'
Also it's very important to take a close-up picture of your
face before you start using your Facial Secret so that you
can see the improvements clearly in the weeks to come by
comparing your face in the mirror to the picture.
How often and how long should I use the Facial Secret
The Facial Secret® is designed to be used for five
(5) minutes per treatment. We recommend taking a maximum
of two (2) treatments daily for the first month and then
daily treatments after that. After about 6 to 8 weeks
of use, you can switch to a maintenance schedule where you
use the Facial Secret every other day. If your schedule
permits, you may take both initial daily treatments together
or separately. If you miss a treatment, don't worry,
just extend the daily treatments for the lost days.
How do I prepare my skin?
For results, use the unit on clean skin only (no make-up).
We suggest cleansing the skin in the evening and using the
unit before retiring to bed, early morning before work,
or any convenient time in your schedule.
Do LED Treatments work on everyone?
LED treatments are proven to work on all skin types.
There is an over 90% success rate for people using LED light
After treatment what do I use on my skin?
Simply retire to bed with bare skin. Skin will further
Can I combine LED treatments with other skin care products?
Yes, you can. LED treatments can be used alone
or with other skin care treatments. In fact your results
will happen faster and be more dramatic if used with a high
quality anti-aging or moisturizing skin care product.
Many physicians have found LED treatments to complement
other skin care treatments.
Can I use the Facial Secret for balding, acne, rosacea?
LED light therapy devices have been used for balding,
rosacea, pain, arthritis and acne. From an extensive
search we performed across the Internet we have found that
our LED light therapy product uses similar technology as
some other devices whose advertisers are making these claims.
Since this is a new product for us, we are not willing to
make any claims that this unit will produce the same results
as claimed by other available products. This unit is being
marketed as a cosmetic aid device. The Facial Secret®
will cover your entire face with one treatment and we are
hearing great testimonies
from our clients on the results they are achieving.

Will LED light therapy using the Facial Secret help
with acne or blemishes?
Although this anti-aging photo rejuvenation product was
not designed specifically to handle acne and blemishes,
the Facial Secret® will stimulate the skin's natural
healing process which helps in the treatment of acne, pimples
and blemishes. Our users have reported that their
skin begins producing less oil as the size of their skin
pores decrease after using the Facial Secret. Reduced
oil output also helps reduce the impact of acne or pimples.
Does LED Light Therapy help fade age spots?
Yes, over time, light therapy can help fade age spots!
Spots will gradually lighten after about three or four weeks
of daily use. You may wish to use a depigmentation
cream such as All-natural Skin Lighten or products containing
hydroquinone to help speed lightening the areas. Pycnogenol
gel is known to help fade pigmentation spots. Again
these cream products are not necessary but with some individuals,
can help speed results. Be sure to apply daily sunscreen
to help prevent further age spots and wrinkles.
What color lights does Facial Secret® use?
Facial Secret® uses 12 red LEDs and 12 yellow LEDs,
all high brightness technology, and under microprocessor
control. Studies have shown that our unique formula
for pulsing the LEDs on and off provides the most effective
technique for getting the light energy below the skin's
epidermis to the dermis to stimulate the production of collagen
while slowing down collagen breakdown.
How do LED lights for home use compare to the photo
rejuvenation light treatments in spas & salons?
The concept and technology are basically the same.
The main difference is in cost and convenience. One
photo rejuvenation treatment in a spa or salon typically
costs $75 to over $200, and it's usually recommended that
you get a series of 5 to 10 treatments several times a year.
With our Facial Secret®, home-use means you and your
family members can enjoy unlimited treatments in the convenience
of your own home for many years to come for less than $399.
How can Facial Secret® be incorporated into my current
Facial Secret® is the perfect complement to any aesthetic
treatment of the face, neck, chest and hands. Facial
Secret® can also be used as an add-on service to facials,
microdermabrasions, chemical peels, waxing services and
