Do I need to take off my makeup before using light therapy?
Yes, make up will need to be removed. Most makeups have SPF sunscreen in them, which can limit the efficacy of the light therapy device.
Should I use creams or topical or have a clean face?
Wrinkle-reduction light therapy devices can be used alone or with skin care products such as peptides and hyaluronic acids. Many skin care professionals and estheticians have found that by combining light therapy with peptides, hyaluronic acid, green tea, and white tea, they are able to achieve increased results.
You should avoid products containing retinal or light activated ingredients while using the device, however. It is recommended to use such products after your treatment.
It is also recommended to use the system on a clean face first. When introducing light therapy to your skin, we recommend that you do a skin sensitivity test and use the device without a topical product or creams to determine how your skin responds to the light therapy.
