natural skin care, acne skin treatment and rejuvenation, no doubt you’ve wondered “How long do I need to use it?” This question often comes up regarding photo rejuvenation natural skin care.  The answers you will get are as varied as there are manufacturers of devices.  Let’s start this short discussion with one piece of information that will remain constant and that is; you cannot use it too long. In other words you can’t over do it, even if you left the device on one spot for an hour no harm or damage can result.

So, back to the question. The object of photo rejuvenation natural skin care and acne skin treatment is to create an effect on the skin cells through the use of intense, very particular kinds of light. These kinds of light jazz up the metabolism of skin cells so they do what they normally do only better and faster. So, now the question becomes, “How long does it take for these lights to jazz up the metabolism of skin cells?”  The answer is not very long.  You see the outer layer of skin, the epidermis, on the face for example is only about a 1/16th of an inch thick and is quite translucent, meaning light passes easily through it into the dermis or next layer of skin. These light devices emit intense light that saturate the layers of skin instantly the moment they are placed on or over the skin. It’s the same as when you walk into a dark room and flip the switch to turn on the light…how long does it take to light up the room?  Now that we know it takes only a very short time to get the cells going, will keeping the light there a long time get the cells going more?  Not really.  I have held that all that is necessary is 30 seconds, but surely within in 2-3 minutes one will create the effect necessary on the cells. Of course after you have concluded your session the effect diminishes so one can repeat the procedure later in the day or the next day.  Please keep in mind that the type of photorejuvenation skin care device I’m referring to here is a handheld version that needs to be moved at intervals to cover the whole face, not the larger salon devices.

Even though I have stated the above some will want to use their device for longer periods of time with the idea that “if some is good more is better”, as I stated at the beginning that is fine as no harm can come from this.
