That’s why your dermatologist recommend to not expose your skin to the sun when you are following an acne treatment, for example. Light therapy is not a substitute to tanning booth, so don’t expect any suntan, again light therapy products don’t use UV lamp.

If light therapy equipment was mainly used by spas and doctors, every one can now own the same technology in a portable device. The treatment being 100% natural and producing no side effects, it’s easy to understand why more and more people turn to a one time effective investment ($200-$400). The device can even be shared with friends or the whole family.
