Spider Vein Treatment Research
It has recently been discovered (S. Y Lee et al, 2007) that LED light at a wavelength of 830nm is a highly effective treatment for clearing facial spider veins (telangiectasia). In a unique study, Lee et al studied the effects of LED light waves for the effects on anti-ageing. Their study clearly demonstrated that 830nm and 635nm LED light waves did indeed have a significant anti-ageing effect. However, during the study, they further found that the treatment had also virtually cleared a participant’s facial telangiectasia (although the mechanism involved remains speculative).
Mary Read Ltd have been producing red and blue light therapy for the treatment of acne for 6 years, with great results. We have, (on request), sold all red tubes (660nm) for the treatment of spider veins and rosacea during this period and have indeed found red light treatment to be an effective treatment for both conditions.
Therefore, due to advances in LED technology, we have now produced an affordable LED treatment unit, the ‘britebox revive’ (633nm & 830nm) for the treatment of spider veins and rosacea. The advantages of LEDs over traditional fluorescent light boxes are in that they produce coherent wavelengths with effective intensities. This means that red LED treatment is more effective and can be used within your home without having to use expensive clinics. In addition to this, the britebox revive has the added benefit of skin rejuvenation!
