At Home Red Light Therapy

Its been awhile since I have been on this website, but I figured this would be a great resource to ask people some questions about Red Light Therapy. I recently looked into buying a red light LED lamp for at home use to help with the redness and inflamation. I was looking at one at www.growace.com that is used to grow plants indoors, its a 14watt 660nm red light panel. This was substantially cheaper than the other ones I found that were specifically used for rosacea, but they both had the same wavelength and the wattage was the same. Is there any downside to the cheaper one? Just want to make sure prior to buying one.
Thanks

It looks like I just asked the same question - silly me for not searching properly :oops:

I hope we get some feedback, grow-lights seem to be good value.

Hi wjp1982.

It just occurred to me that many LCD TV's have a bunch of LEDs in them.

What if we could just load up a red picture?

Although the LEDs are white and for all I know emit UV.

I go to a tanning solon that has a RED LIGHT tanning bed. Since my rosacea dx I've gone twice and it doesn't make my face red or seem to hurt it. It is supposed to heal.
