RLT or Yellow Light therapy...or both?

Hi,

I posted last year about purchasing an LED machine with both RLT and YLT. I began using it last year and found it a bit too much for my skin at the time. The RLT seemed to be more of a problem. I have decided to try it again after it has been sitting in my closet for the last 9 months or so. My question is whether I should use RLT or YLT and for how long? Can these lights be used together? I know Aurelia gave me some great answers to these questions last year, but my research has revealed that red light and yellow light can be used together. Hmmm...At the moment I am using red light for 5 minutes and yellow light for 1-3 minutes with no adverse effects. I have the option of using either red or yellow light or using them together. I think I've given myself too many options! (;) When I use red alone, my skin does get a little more irritated than when I use red + yellow or yellow alone. I am therefore tempted to do the red/yellow combo and then a bit of yellow alone. If anyone has any input or suggestions, it would be much appreciated!
