RED LIGHT THERAPY FAQ
Below you will find answers to frequently asked questions regarding the Ergoline BEAUTY ANGEL.
The Ergoline BEAUTY ANGEL utilizes full-body red light lamps together with platform-based vibration exercise technology (if equipped) to create the ultimate skin and muscle toning environment.
What results can I expect?
How quickly your body responds to the BEAUTY ANGEL progam is directly related to the age and current condition of your skin. While results vary, you can typically expect to see a more even skin tone, smaller pore size, a reduction in fine lines and a healthier overall appearance as you continue your BEAUTY ANGEL regimen. The process of skin rejuvenation continues for a period after completion of the sessions.
How can I reach my goals?
We recommend an initial BEAUTY ANGEL program consisting of three 12-minute sessions per week during a 12 week period.
Results can be further enhanced by the regular application of our exclusive BEAUTY ANGEL skin care products which have been specifically formulated for red light therapy. BEAUTY ANGEL Focus, Effect and Replenish represent a 3-step system that boosts collagen production while inhibiting cellulite. Made with natural ingredients and exotic botanicals, these cosmetics soothe, condition, rejuvenate and restore the skin's natural elasticity and glow.
For maximum benefit include a balanced diet, body hydration and regular exercise as part of your BEAUTY ANGEL routine. Limiting the use of tobacco and alcohol will also enhance the overall process.
How can I maintain the results?
Once you have completed your red light therapy, you can preserve the results through a combination of one weekly session along with proper diet, hydration, special skin care products and exercise.
How do I need to prepare my skin for a red light lamp therapy session?
To ensure the best possible results of the red light treatment, it's benificial to cleanse your skin thoroughly beforehand. No other preparation is necessary. The use of special skin care products like the BEAUTY ANGEL line, designed specifically for red light therapy, may improve the results experienced.
Is it OK to wear cosmetics during the session?
Please be aware that makeup may reduce or block the effectiveness of the light. The skin's permeability increases during the session, which improves the effect of skin care products and allows active ingredients to penetrate deeper. For best results we recommend removing all makeup prior to use.
Do I need to wear protective glasses?
The lamps in the BEAUTY ANGEL emit light primarily in the 600–700 nanometer range. They do not emit UV light. The light is very bright in nature. Therefore, we recommend the use of protective eyewear. No one should stare directly at the lamps or conduct any strenuous activities such as reading, etc. while exposed to this light. Salon operators should always mention the potential need for protective eyewear prior to each session.
Is the red light used in Photo Rejuvenation Therapy comparable to sunlight?
No. The lamps used in the BEAUTY ANGEL do not emit UVA or UVB. The light frequency is primarily in the 600–700 nanometer range.
What distinguishes red light therapy from other types of treatment?
Unlike other skin rejuvenation therapies such as laser and IPL, Photo Rejuvenation Therapy works without high temperatures on the skin or damaging tissues or cells. The red light emitted is not hot and is suitable for all skin types and age groups.
- No known contraindications
- No regeneration time
- Simple, natural treatment
How does the BEAUTY ANGEL differ from LED treatments?
LED treatments are much more expensive and usually only treat the face. The BEAUTY ANGEL covers the entire body and achieves a much more intense effect, giving you more "bang for your buck."
Do certain medications affect the results?
If you are taking medication or suffer from a skin disorder, please be aware that certain medicines may be photosensitive. That is, they may cause an adverse reaction when the body is exposed to light. A list that identifies many photosensitive medications, foods and ingredients should be on display in any salon. Always consult your physician if you have any questions or concerns prior to using the BEAUTY ANGEL.
Is the treatment suitable for anyone?
Photo Rejuvenation Therapy using red light lamps is suitable for all skin types. However, the following people should not use the BEAUTY ANGEL:
- Pregnant women
- People with illnesses that are sensitive to light
- People using medication or herbal remedies that may result in light sensitivity such as antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs, St. John's Wort, etc.
- Platform Body Vibration training should be omitted after acute surgery, or if you are suffering from cardiac issues, hip and bone diseases, are pregnant, have received bone implants or are suffering from an acute illness or inflammation.
