Every device has guidelines to use it. You would surely read the instruction manual and set up your CelLED LED Belt device for your Red Light Therapy treatment.
Here are some basic rules that you might want to consider for the optimum usage of your device:
You can sit in any position to use your device. You can use it while working on your computer, watching TV or even in your car. Make sure the device is close to the area you want to treat and strapped in comfortably.
CLOTHING & MAKE UP
For effective use, the area of your body that you’re treating needs to be exposed directly to the light from the device. Clothing prevents the red and near infrared light from reaching your cells, so be sure to remove any garments from the part of your body you’re treating.
The same principle applies with make-up. Any creams or oils will block the penetration of the light and reflect it off the skin. Make sure the treatment area of your body has been washed and cleaned before using your Red Light Therapy device.
GLASSES & CONTACT LENSES
You may safely remove your eyeglasses and contacts for treatments. Red light therapy has been shown in numerous clinical trials to support eye health and vision. The LED lights are bright, so we recommend closing your eyes if you are using the device on your face.
Red Light Therapy LED Belt devices can be used any time of the day. However, 30-60 minute treatments are optimal, 1-2 hours for symptomatic areas may be beneficial per day, beyond that, the evidence shows diminishing returns (your cells can only absorb so much light at once). Therefore, we recommend you allow at least 6 hours between treatments of the same area.
To get the most out of your device, consistency is key. We suggest using it once daily, although 2-3 times per day may be beneficial for chronic conditions until symptoms ease. If you find the results are weakening or pain starts to return we suggest stopping treatment for 2-3 days then whatever dosage you were using prior, halve it i.e. if it was 2 hours every day, then only do 1 hour. Over 90% of our customers find the therapeautic benefits come back even stronger than before
Keeping and maintaining your device will elongate its life and provide a long running return on investment.
Wipe it down after each use with an alcohol wipe for hygiene – NEVER use water or detergent on your device as it WILL DAMAGE IT. Storing it in its carry pouch is also something that will not only elongate the device’s life but also have all its other accessories in one place to use it the next time.
