This machine has been miraculous for me regarding many skin conditions healed in a matter of weeks and has greatly improved my general health. It has been a tremendous addition to jump starting my new health regimen! I am very satisfied and plan on always using it in my daily regimens!
I initially purchased the Full-body red-light therapy device for low back-pain & to improve the bags under my eyes. Although, my back pain diminished soon after I started using the device, I couldn't be sure it wasn't from a significant weight loss experienced at same time. Although, I still have droopy eyes, (possibly from genetics) I no longer have darkness in the area. I am not a good judge of whether my face is looking "better", I can say I was recently carded. I am well over the age to be carded, 40 or younger. The real test of effectiveness happened when I burned my left wrist whilst doing my daughter's hair, and a blister to my right index finger from yard work on the same day. I used the red light device starting the next morning for 5 min, 2X a day. The pain went away immediately, and by the next morning a new layer thicker layer of skin had formed. I know this b/c hand sanitizer did not burn the blister, kinda just tingled. By day 4 only a mark remains of the burn, but the skin is smooth & intact. There is only a slight scab over one edge of the blister. My husband is now a believer after getting a severe sun-burn last week. It took his pain away and he did not peel! He now uses it daily before bed, after a heavy lifting session. I know longer hear him complain about his sore wrists.
I've had the full body device for six months now and it has done wonders for me. I suffered with a mild form of eczema which caused red, itchy, inflamed and sometimes blistered skin that would flare up from time to time. I tried many different natural remedies and changes to my diet to no avail. I also suffered from bloating on a daily basis. I researched red light therapy and decided to give Red Alternative a try due to their devices' irradiance and price point. It was a great decision made! The device is strong and sturdy and the red light is powerful. I no longer suffer from eczema or everyday bloating and it really helps with body aches and pains. I also sleep better and have softer skin. I highly recommend giving Red Alternative a shot!
I received my light remarkably fast and I was expecting something a lot smaller but was pleasantly surprised at its size. It works really well and I like using it on my muscles after working out. I also use it on my face, and while I already have youthful looking skin, I hope this device can prolong that. Overall I am very pleased. It's high quality and works very well.
Thank you Red Alternative for making a great product and affordable. I’ve had it for a bout a month now and I feel the inflammation in my body decreasing. It’s amazing for after a workout for recovering the body for taking a beating during our daily lives. Also has helped me sleep a lot better. My dog also loves red light. Can’t wait to get another soon :)
This is my second red light device and the Red Alternative device is as good or better than comparable devices at twice the cost. I’ve measured the light output and it was significantly higher than my other, more expensive devices. This means shorter treatment times and potentially better results. I’ve used it for 4 weeks now and I have no concerns with quality or materials. I did experience some mild hiccups with shipping which the seller addressed immediately.
The product itself is notably HIGH quality. It took me a minute to figure out how to put together the hooks because they don't come with directions, but then it was actually easy once I looked carefully at it.
Customer service is pretty good at responding as well. They were busy during this time due to COVID, but overall, pleasant and responsive in the end.
I used it once only, and my skin was IMMEDIATELY supple and soft after first session, although that wasn't my intent for its use, but it's a nice added perk. I woke up also with my lips feeling noticeably soft too. My skin texture changed completely, pores lessened in size, just pretty fabulous.
I had some pain in my joints, as I usually do I also have issues with either hyper-extending or not extending, and I feel like I have more flexibility where I was having issues on no being able to extend joints, and the pain subsided where I hyper-extend due to a condition I have called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. I refuse to take pain medication so I figure this should pay off on its own. And I think I'm right.
I'm a little concerned about my cat, who follows me around. He could probably use a treatment since he's 14. I actually put a cover on his head, and removed it from the body part, and beamed the light on his body today. He stayed there immobile, so clearly he loved it; otherwise, he would have moved away.
Overall, it's an investment, not nearly as expensive as other companies though! I do highly recommend it. I believe that it's well worth every penny and it's only my third day, but I felt this way from the first 10 minute of use! I feel so much better. It's truly amazing. Thank you!
I've been using my full-body red light therapy device from Red Alternative for 3 weeks now and am absolutely blown away by the difference it has made to the chronic back and neck pain that I’ve been experiencing for nearly 3 years. Before I started using the device, I would be in agony within an hour of starting work at my home computer, but now I can practically go the whole day without feeling a fraction of the pain that I did before. Red light therapy has achieved in 3 weeks what 18 months of therapy could not. The device itself is well built and is very affordable compared to similar products on the market. I’m so glad I decided to invest in the full-body device and could not be happier with the results!
We use this everyday to help with muscle recovery post exercise and to help reduce inflammation. It has been extremely helpful post knee surgery and my husband finds it is very beneficial for aiding the healing of a low back injury. It is loved by our whole family. Definitely the new favourite device for improving overall wellness.
I was sceptical if this light would actually work, but it has been pretty amazing. It is really helping with my knee and shoulder pain. Very grateful to have found it.
I bought this for my wife for her birthday (she was constantly researching Red Light Therapy and loving all of the benefits). She was SO excited when she opened this! She has started using it right away. My father-in-law and I work in the LED lighting industry and now he wants to possibly start looking at adding Red Light Therapy to our business, too. All in all, great product!
I was suffering from a serious skin disease called Topical Steroid Withdraw for a year or more. I was told it would take 3-5 years to heal. Red Light Therapy and CBD changed my healing process big time. I starting using RLT in October 2019 in the morning and evening. I noticed that I especially need it at night, due to processing of food. By January 2020 I was healing fast. And by March 2020 I was completely healed. I am now swimming and using my bath tub for the first time in almost two years. I am eating anything I want. I am so thankful.
the pic was after two months using RLT, another two months later, the skin was completely healed.
blood vessel issue is what made the skin so red.
RLT is not UV. You can’t burn. You can’t overdose. And you can purchase a unit for your own home.
Helps with inflammation - big time! I’m sleeping better. Better mood.
I had tried everything. Dr Aron, lotions, potions, you name it. For me, RLT, cbd, limiting dairy/sugar/gluten during my healing process made a serious impact.
I did a LOT of homework. And I recommend this brand.
Seems safer while being more powerful and less expensive. Important thing for me was safety, power, and ease of use. No assembly with red alt!
P.S. The pic I'm adding, top is October and the bottom is after just after two months of using RLT.
All the benefits regarding red and infrared light therapy you read or watched on YouTube is true. Age defying, energy and collagen producing, workout recovery, you name it, it's all true. You must absolutely put the time in just like any other diet program or workout regimen, but the benefits I've felt and changes I've seen in my body for the last month and a half is not made up. It's legitimate and I can't wait to see the 6 month and then 1 year results this crazy red light will give me. I've been using Red Alternative on my legs a lot due to my RLS (restless leg syndrome) and my nightly symptoms are much more manageable. Hey, we're all mostly holed up at home anyway, why not try Red Alternative everyday and see for yourselves?
We compared this device with competitors and after trying out a could products, like the popular Joovv, we were convinced this was a much
I ordered the light to ease chronic shoulder impingement pain. I was skeptical at first but bought it anyway after reading so many positive reviews. I was surprised at how quickly my shoulder pain improved. It even helped to relax other joint stiffness in my body (neck, fingers and back). Another benefit is that the light smoothed old back acne scars and faded sun damaged area on my skin. Highly recommended!
