Q: How Does The 'Red Light' On The Beauty Angel Work On Collagen/Elastin Stimulation And All The Other Claimed Benefits Of This Type Of Rejuvenation Services?
(The color spectrum chart below shows nanometers/visible colors)
A: It's all about Nanometers! (Plus energy/intensity of the light) Light in certain color spectrums creates a variety of physiological responses on our skin. And using other colors spectrums as examples makes this much easier to understand:
Ultraviolet (UV) Light: Between 280-400 nanometers and nobody can dispute what UV light does! We know that when it reacts with melanin in your skin, you get a tan. Or a sunburn if you get too much! UV Light also is the most natural way our body gets Vitamin D, a very essential vitamin for many vital functions.
Blue Light: 470 nanometers and is used for acne treatments at many med-clinics and dermatologists' offices. Kills bacteria and very well-known and medically approved as effective - again with no disputes in its efficacy or legitimacy. Often, the Blue Light is used together with the Red Light at 633 nanometers as the red light assists is cellular turnover and healing from acne scarring.
Red Light: 633 nanometers and is proven to penetrate to the fibroblasts (skin cells) that regulate collagen/elastin production and stimulate them to increase their production. Think of this parallel: What UV Light is to Melanocytes (melanin), Red Light at 633 nanometers is to your fibroblasts. So as a result, the red light, with enough energy, will 'turbo-charge' your skin’s own rejuvenation system!
THIS SYSTEM IS FDA APPROVED AS 'SAFE' FOR SKIN REJUVENATION WITH NO KNOWN SIDE EFFECTS OR POSSIBLE DAMAGE.
So it's not a gimmick. It's not anecdotal evidence. It's proven science!
Q: How Does The Vibration Plate Work And What Does It Do? Can I Choose To Turn That Off If I Just Want The Rejuvenation Effect Of The Red Light?
A: There is a detailed explanation about Whole Body Vibration (WBV) plates at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whole-body_vibration. One of the main benefits is that it will increase the benefits from the collagen lights due to your body's increased circulation (you will actually feel the tingling). Plus, WBV has great physiological benefits of helping you build your core muscles, improving flexibility, toning, and generally will serve as an excellent warm-up before going to the gym! (Or before VacuStep/Formostar)
You will without a doubt KNOW this is working from your very first time trying this. There are also 4 different programs available depending on your goals and current fitness levels.
Some clients may prefer to do the Beauty Angel without using the Vibration Plate - which is completely possible to do. Only use WBV if desired!
Q: What Are The Different Programs Available On The Vibration Plate?
A: There are 4 programs/levels available, which you can select at the beginning of each session.

Q: Have Independent Tests Been Done To Confirm That The Beauty Angel Works As Claimed?
A: Yes! The study was performed in Germany on 59 female subjects between 36 and 70 years old with mild to moderate wrinkles. The link to the study is below.
The study with some detailed Before & After pictures can be found at:
Beauty Angel Study
Also, keep in mind the following control factors that can make your results even better:
- Subjects were tested for only 8 weeks with 2 visits per week. Recommended is 12 weeks at 3 times a week.
- Vibration Platform was not used. The improved circulation created by this will undoubtedly improve overall results and allow the Red Light Therapy to be more effective.
- Red light therapy helps active ingredients of cosmeceuticals penetrate deeper and faster. So by using recommended products, the anti-aging effect will be greatly enhanced.
Q: What Is The Recommended Program For Maximum Results? And What Does It Take To Maintain The Results?
A: For best results, it is recommended that you do 3 (12 minute) sessions a week for a period of 12 weeks. You may come more if desired.
To maintain results it is recommended that you come once (to twice) a week thereafter. With maintenance, you're basically keeping your collagen/elastin in a heightened state of production. Plus the red light stimulates your serotonin levels so you'll feel better after each session while the Vibration Platform will help energize you!
Q: How Quickly Will I See Results On My Skin & What Type Of Results Can I Expect?
A: Results are broken down into 3 phases. Immediate (first week), Intermediate (30 days), and Full Cellular Regeneration (90 days).
- Immediate. You'll almost right away feel and see softer skin, a reduction in pore size and a 'glow' that even others may notice. These results will be further enhanced by our product kit and when combined with the vibration programs.
- Intermediate. At about 25-35 days, the superficial results combine with some of the benefits of renewed collagen and stronger elastin. You should see some skin tightening, a light fading of pigmentation issues and/or Rosacea, and possibly a noticeable reduction of fine lines on the face and body.
- Full Cellular Regeneration. Our skin cells completely renew themselves approximately every 90 days, so this is when you will realize the greatest results and benefits. These may include noticeable fading of pigmentation and/or Rosacea, reduction in sun spots, less prominent deeper lines and wrinkles, and a much softer feeling skin.
From the Vibration Plate, you should also notice some gains in muscle definition, core strength, reduced appearance of cellulite, and greater flexibility. We don't claim weight loss from the increase in metabolism that the Vibration Plates can help with, although some customers may realize many benefits beyond the ones we're making and we're looking forward to hearing about your results!
How 'dramatic' the results you'll see will be determined by several factors. These include age, genetic predisposition, whether you smoke, drink, your diet, as well as the overall health of your skin.
Q: Is This Technology Safe? Are There Any Side Effects Or Negatives From This?
A: The technology is approved as safe by the FDA for skin rejuvenation and there have not been any harmful side effects reported. Some clients are sensitive to bright light so goggles are provided.
Q: Is The Beauty Angel Treatment Suitable For Anyone?
A: The following people should NOT use the Beauty Angel: Pregnant women, epileptics, people with illnesses that make them very sensitive to light, and people who are taking herbal remedies or medications that increase photo-sensitivity. Check with your doctor if unsure.
Platform Body Vibration training should be omitted after: Acute surgery, or if you are suffering from cardiac, hip and bone diseases, are pregnant, have received bone implants or are suffering from an acute illness or inflammation. Please check with your doctor if unsure!
Q: What If I Do Other Treatments Like IPL, Laser, Microdermabrasion, Chemical Peels, Spa Facials, Acne Treatments, Etc.?
A: The Photo Bio Stimulation Red Light Therapy will stimulate the collagen production in your skin and accelerates the healing proces. The result of this is faster healing and an exponentially greater effect from these other treatments. So using the Beauty Angel after any of the above treatments will be very beneficial to you and why so many Med-Spas and Dermatology practices offer this service post-invasive procedures. (But at much higher cost)
Q: Does The Beauty Angel Tan Me Or Have Any UV Light? Can It Fade Tattoos Like UV Light?
A: NO! 633 nanometers is far away from the UV Light spectrum so there is no UV Light and this service will not change the color of your skin, unless fading sun spots or pigmentation issues is what you're talking about! As for tattoos, there is no fading from using the Beauty Angel or any Red Light Rejuvenation systems.
Q: Can I Combine This On The Same Day With Tanning Or With Spray Tanning?
A: Absolutely! If you're tanning in beds, tan first then do the Beauty Angel. You get your beautiful color and Vitamin D from tanning; then you get your skin repairing and toning right after! We can't legally say "Guilt Free Tanning" but that's kind of how it sounds like when you factor in the 'healing qualities' of the red light therapy.
For Spray Tanning, use the Beauty Angel first as it will do a great job of opening up your pores and increasing circulation. So your spray tan should look better than ever when doing after the Beauty Angel!
Q: What If I Already Work Out & Stay Physically Fit?
A: This will be a perfect service to do before your workouts as the Platform Body Vibration training does an amazing job of warming up your muscles and putting your body in a more ready state for training. This technology is used more and more by professional and amateur athletes to help increase performance, strength, and speed. I will again refer you to read more about it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whole-body_vibration.
