It’s been on my list for over a year now: “Dermatologist Visit”.
That nagging little “to-do” is being constantly de-prioritized, mainly because I already know that the laser treatments I desire to diminish the redness of my rosacea will likely cost over a thousand dollars, not to mention hours spent in the doctor’s office! When the kind team at Sirius offered me an Aurora to sample, I was all over it. This at-home LED Light Therapy device boasts results similar to anything you’d get from the dermatologist!
I’m generally frustrated by at-home beauty devices. When I open up a brand new tool, I simply can’t wait to dig in! Sadly, some require long charge times before you get started. Not so with Aurora, which simply needs to be plugged in!
Here’s how to use it:
Aurora comes with three different LED light colors to use. Red, for anti-aging and redness. Blue, for anti-acne treatment. Green, for hyper-pigmentation. Damn, I need all three!
The regimen is simple, but semi-time consuming. Each treatment will take 24 minutes!
Step 1: Pulsating Light
First you need to prep clean, dry skin with a pulsating light function. The face is divided into three sections: 1) the chin and jawline, 2) the nose and cheeks and 3) the forehead.
Each section will be treated for three minutes. Simply skim the top layer of the skin in each section while the light flashes. The device should be moved in small circular motions. When the device beeps, it’s time to move onto the next section.
Step 2: Constant Light
During this phase, the light will stay on constantly. Move the device in a round motion over the surface of the skin. This time, your face will need to be treated in 5 sections, with each section being treated for 3 minutes. The face is divided as follows: 1) the ckin area, 2) a cheek, 3) one side of the forehead, 4) the other side of the forehead and 5) the other cheek. It doesn’t matter if you go clockwise or counter-clockwise. As long as each section is treated for three minutes, you’re golden.
I’ll be honest. The overall treatment time is lengthy. However, a trip to the doctor would be longer and more expensive! I’ve had issues with finding the time to use this device properly. My solution? I think I’ll plug it in near my couch, and do the treatments while watching TV! Talk about convenient! Post-treatment, my skin simply felt a bit warm. No other side-effects of any kind were noted. I’ll report back later on this one readers!
