Red Light Therapy continues to plague many rosacea sufferers
Two rosacea forums are actively promoting Red Light Therapy for rosacea: LED, LLLT, and Infrared devices. This is not free exchange of information as RLT salesmen and saleswomen are now on these boards by the dozens promoting, selling and receiving commissions for sales. So, there is bias. Plus, two moderators are selling these machines and deleting negative postings... this goes against the rosacea treatment evaluation process and against the directives of nonbiased moderating.....
This is the new world we live in. However, more and more rosacea sufferers are buying harmful devices and homemade RLT devices -and- their rosacea is getting worse; even more disconcerting is that a few moderators with financial interests are deleting these posts warning of rosacea progression, constant flushing, and neural burning and stinging sensations.
Understand that RLT was developed specifically to grow new blood vessels for wound healing and crossed over into the lucrative area of antiaging. It does this by inducing the growth of hundreds of new blood vessels.... increase blood flow for non-rosaceans is excellent... but not for rosacea.
A peer reviewed journal will soon be published with histological studies demonstrating a 400% increase in blood vessels in the surface of the facial skin with several different RLT devices. A 400% increase in blood vessels numbers is truly amazing. The increase in blood flow that comes with these new blood vessels is even more dramatic. Even more problematic is that these new vessels grow closer to the surface of the skin because they grow towards the RLT emissions... much like plants grow towards sunlight.
So, now we have 400% more blood vessels, dramatic increases in blood flow, vessels that are so superficial they can be seen by the naked eye -and- salespeople on the two rosacea boards making a small fortune off of mislead rosacea sufferers who do not read both sides of the story because several of the moderators are actively selling these machines and deleting negative publicity.
Just be careful. You cannot reverse the growth of that many new blood vessels without 10 to 15 expensive laser treatments.
This is not about right and wrong -or- positioning for world domination, it's about giving rosacea sufferers the full facts so they can make an informed decision. They also need to know about the politics going on with the other two boards and the instantaneous banning and removal of rosacea sufferers who are warning others about the inherent risks of this controversial treatment.
