  • General safety of red light therapy product
  • The cost and budget for the product

  • Your goal
  • Sensitivity of your skin to the product

1. General safety of the red light therapy product

The number one factor that should guide you in choosing a red light therapy for stretch marks is whether the product comes with side effects. An ideal product must come with Goggles, especially for those who are susceptible to eye strains or headache. You should consider a product that poses little or no risk to your eyes. Though LED red light therapy devices, used at home for treating stretch marks and other skin problems can become warm, but not too hot to handle- any device that gets too hot to handle simply means the device is faulty.

General safety of the red light therapy product

If you take some medications that can increase the sensitivity of your skin to red light, then you must consult your doctor before buying a red light therapy product. Some individuals do complain that skin conditions such as acne suddenly flare up after they started using some red light therapy devices; you need to check that your preferred product does not cause problems like this. The ideal product must not aggravate your skin problem, rather it is expected to rectify them, therefore, you must conduct your own investigations, to be sure of what you are dealing with.

2. The cost and budget for the product

Regardless of the cost of the red light therapy product you are buying, you must not compromise quality for cost- this means, you must go for quality first. The cheapest red light devices are not usually the most suitable for your skin, likewise, the most expensive ones, are not always the best, in terms of quality.

The cost and budget for the product

Always go for the red light therapy products that provides as many accessories as possible in their packages, these may include; goggles and charger, and batteries. In considering the costs of red light therapy products, you need to consider also the expensive alternatives such as the use of expensive skin serums, dermatology treatments and other skin surgical treatments, and you will see that Red light therapy treatments cost a fraction of such alternatives.

Aside the real cost of the red light therapy products, the availability of money-back guaranty and special warranties can provide you with a great bargain, therefore you must watch out for such additional policies. There is no point wasting your money on a product that you have never used before and at the end of the treatment you don’t achieve the desired result.

3. The comfortability or usability of the red light therapy product

An ideal Red light therapy device must not just be durable; it must provide a great deal of comfort for the user. You need to consider the comfortability of a product before paying for it. You should ask yourself questions like; does the product feel lighter in the hand? Can I use it comfortably without accidentally making it come in contact with my eyes? Can I handle it while it’s being charged? Does it get too hot that it becomes uncomfortable to touch?

The comfortability or usability

An ideal Red light therapy product must not get too hot to handle, if it does, then it means there is a mechanical or electrical fault within, or possibly one of its safety components is missing, or broken. The best red light therapy product only works when it comes in contact with the skin.

Secondly, a comfortable product must come with an automatic switch-off, that turns the device off when fully charged. A safe product should be comfortably used whether it is being recharged or not, and it must not come with sharp edges or points that can cause injuries when not in use. An ideal red light therapy device must be able to store or packaged comfortably after use.

4. Your goal on buying a red light therapy device for stretch marks

Your goal

Simply put, your goal in this situation is the result you want to achieve with the use of a Red Light therapy device. If the only goal you have is to treat your stretch marks, then you may use the device for a less period of time, however, if you have other skin issues such as acne, eczema and wrinkles, then you may have to consult with your doctor before choosing any red light therapy product while many treatment products can only provide guaranty on treating stretch marks.

Others do claim they can treat other skin disorders, however, there has been growing concerns on the possibility of some Red light therapy products, worsening skin conditions such as acne. For this reason, you must have a specific goal in mind when buying a product of this nature. If the product says that it is only effective for stretch marks only, then you must not apply it on acne or pimples.

You need to set a reasonable goal when treating stretch marks with red light therapy products. The period at which stretch marks are completely treated, vary from one product to the other, therefore, it is ideal to set a reasonable goal of between 4-12 weeks or even more, for a complete treatment of your stretch marks.

5. Sensitivity of your skin to the product

The sensitivity of your skin to the Red light therapy product must be considered when buying your choice. While some products can increase the sensitivity of your skin because they only work on red lights. In this case, you can consider more flexible products that works on different colors, and see which one works best with your sensitive skin. Secondly, you should consider a product that has flexible options of varying the red light intensities according to sensitivity of the skin.

Generally, individual with thicker or darker skins can tolerate red light therapy more than individuals with softer skin. Dry skins may have to be moisturized before the application of Red light therapy device.

Most red light therapy products are designed to be effective on one specific type of skin problems, but when you try to use it for other conditions such as Psoriasis, Rosacea, and Eczema, then you need to consider the sensitivity of your skin to different intensities of the red light products. You should go for a product that treats your stretch marks within the shortest possible time, without any side effects, and the reason being that sensitivity of your skin may increase as you extend the usage of some products.

Conclusion

If you are still hesitating or confused about which red light therapy product for stretch marks to choose, the only advice I will give you as a consumer is to go for one with no side effects and reasonable length of treatment time. With an ideal Red light therapy product, your stretch mark treatment time is reduced, and such treatments do not increase the sensitivity of your skin, neither will your skin develop any side effects.
