I've been doing so well with my rosacea lately, that I haven't needed to do any red light therapy for over a month (and this was after about 4 months of consistent red light usage). However, last night, for whatever reason (none of which I can determine, as I wasn't exposed to any known triggers and wasn't stressed), my rosacea got really itchy and stinging (serious neuro symptoms for me). I also started to see puffy pink spots begin to emerge.
So, I had to re-start my red light therapy at 5 minutes per session. And, I'm now back to doing 2 sessions a day, plus any needed spot treatments. *sigh*
I'm finding that, for me, it's easy to think that a chronic condition will just heal when going through a smooth period. Having to re-start my red light therapy feels like a tough reality check. I am, however, grateful for the availability of quality units and for the responsiveness of my condition towards the red light.
As of this morning, I only have 3 small itchy spots left to heal.
For those thinking about trying red light therapy for their rosacea, here is the unit I use (it's highly effective and in what appears to be the best wavelength for rosacea skin):https://www.smarterlights.com/The-Pure- ... lt-red.htm
