|Photo LED Device Skin Renewal||
There are many approaches to reducing the signs of aging. There are vitamin supplements, topical creams, injections, and machines. The Photon LED Device Skin Renewal is a machine that generates blue and red light at different points on the spectrum to heal damaged skin. The Photon LED Device Skin Renewal system claims to treat mild to moderate cases of acne, enhance skin cell renewal, promote the reorganization of collagen, lighten hyper-pigmentation, correct rosacea, improve blood flow and reduce skin pores. That is a lot of claims for one single product. In the next section, we will look at whether the Photon LED Device Skin Renewal system can deliver on those promises.
We were unable to locate an official website for the Photon LED Device Skin Renewal system but it appears to be available from a few online retailers. We like to see skin care companies with their own websites as that is a primary source of information for the consumer. Because the product cannot be purchased directly from the manufacturer, there does not appear to be a money-back guarantee or a free trial period.
The Photon LED Device Skin Renewal system uses both blue and red light wavelengths to stimulate skin cells. One of the benefits the product claims in an increase in the body’s production of collagen. As we age, our body produces less collagen, and, as it depletes, our skin loses its firm tone and begins to sag, laying the groundwork for wrinkles.
We find that one of the most effective ways to boost the body’s production of collagen is the use of topical products that contain Matrixyl 3000. Matrixyl 3000 is a powerful peptide that penetrates into the sub-dermal layer and stimulates collagen and elastin production. We feel the best formulations couple Matrixyl 3000 with Argiriline, another peptide that smoothes wrinkles by relaxing the underlying facial muscles. One of the online retailers’ websites references an independent study on the impact of this type of photo-therapy on acne. However, we were unable to find any customer testimonials to support the effectiveness of the product.

The Bottom Line
While we like to see new innovations in the fight against aging skin, there simply doesn’t appear to be enough information about the Photon LED Device Skin Renewal system available. At a retail price approaching $100, consumers may wish to review topical solutions that cost significantly less and include clinically-proven ingredients. The best of these products will be backed by a money-back guarantee.
