The BrightTherapy Trident SR11A Light Therapy Device is a multi-functional device designed to provide users with affordable skin care from the privacy and comfort of their own homes. The red light delivers skin rejuvenation, the blue light provides users with anti-acne treatment, while the green light delivers anti-pigmentation. The combination of these different technologies provides users with one of the most affordable at home light-based skin care products on the market.
The BrightTherapy Trident SR11A Light Therapy System is a three-in-one system for treating a variety of skin conditions and problems in the privacy of the user’s own home. It is a lightweight, hand-held device with three interchangeable heads, each of which provide colored LED light therapy in different wavelengths (red/infrared, blue, and green) to treat acne, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. It offers a low-cost and convenient alternative to salon or dermatologist treatments, and it is less invasive than therapies like chemical peels.
Typical uses for the BrightTherapy Trident SR11A Light Therapy System include:
**Treating all types of acne, including chronic, hormonal, allergic, and cystic acne, as well as occasional breakouts
**Reducing the size of acne scars
**Tightening skin tone and reducing skin sagging
**Reducing fine lines and wrinkles, including those around the eyes, upper lip, and nasolabial area
**Reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, such as freckles and age spots
**Reducing skin oiliness
**Making skin appear younger, healthier, and more radiant, including skin damaged by previous sun exposure or smoking
Additionally, some users report success reducing ulcerated areas of skin following radiation therapy and ameliorating post-mastectomy lymphedema. Others report feeling fewer symptoms of depression, anxiety, or Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
The BrightTherapy Trident SR11A Light Therapy System measures 17.8 x 6.8 x 5.7 cm and weighs 80 grams. The treatment head area is 12.2 square centimeters. The unit is rechargeable and comes with built-in NiMH batteries and a 110-240V AC adapter. (A previous model was corded and not rechargeable; buyers should ascertain which model they are purchasing.)
How to Use
The BrightTherapy Trident SR11A Light Therapy System is extremely simple to use:
1. Begin with clean, dry skin wherever it’s being used.
2. Make sure the unit is fully charged.
.3 Attach the appropriate head for desired results (red/infrared, blue, or green).
4. Turn the unit on.
5. Select the mode of operation (continuous light or pulsing).
6. Follow the treatment protocol in the users manual for the specific skin condition being treated.
Change heads for a different colored light if treating multiple types of conditions during the same session (e.g., one treatment for fine lines with the red light and a second treatment for age spots with the green light).
Duration of Treatment
The duration of treatment with the BrightTherapy Trident SR11A Light Therapy System varies with the individual user, the part of the body being treated, and the specific problem being addressed.
The manufacturer suggests that for most conditions, using the system for a minimum of 10 minutes, three times per week is optimal. Long-term conditions or those that have taken years to develop may require more time to treat and may necessitate ongoing use of the BrightTherapy Trident SR11A Light Therapy System.
For example, many users suggest giving the system a minimum of one month to treat acne and to expect the skin to look worse for a week or two before it begins to resolve. This is due to bacteria and its resulting inflammation migrating to the surface of the skin first. Regular treatments with the BrightTherapy Trident SR11A Light Therapy System may be required to keep acne blemishes at bay long term. Likewise, anti-aging treatments may need up to eight weeks to see results, although many users report seeing some improvement of the skin after only one or two treatments.
Who Can Use
The BrightTherapy Trident SR11A Light Therapy System can be used by both men and women of all ages with all skin types and tones. It can also be used by teens with the supervision of an adult. Because the device uses non-UV light, there is minimal risk of skin damage regardless of who utilizes the device.
Parts of the Body
The BrightTherapy Trident SR11A Light Therapy System can be used safely on all parts of the body. However, when treating new parts of the body, it is suggested that users first treat a small area of the skin before moving onto larger portions. This helps ensure that different parts of the body respond to the treatment positively.
The BrightTherapy Trident SR11A Light Therapy System is equipped with a built-in 10-minute timer to help users know how long their treatment sessions last. It also comes with an eye mask for users who find the bright LED lights bothersome. The unit is non-thermal and will not overheat.
Occasionally users report slight dryness after employing the BrightTherapy Trident SR11A Light Therapy System. This is temporary, non-painful, and may be due to the absence of regular moisturizing products on the skin prior to using the system.
For users who find the light too bright when using the system on the face, an eye mask is provided. Users recommend listening to music or a podcast when employing the eye mask to pass the time during treatments.
There are no replacement parts for the BrightTherapy Trident SR11A Light Therapy System. The unit is designed for over 10,000 hours of continuous use, and the LED lights should never burn out. The manufacturer offers a one-year warranty on the unit should it not function as advertised.
The BrightTherapy Trident SR11A Light Therapy System uses LED light therapy similar to that found in salons and dermatologists offices. The monochromatic light at four different wavelengths provides four types of treatment for various skin conditions:
**Red light at 660 nm and infrared light at 880 nm reduce wrinkles and fine lines by helping the skin produce more collagen. These wavelengths also improve the skin’s tone and texture, resulting in younger-looking, more radiant skin.
**Blue light at 420 nm kills Proprionibacterium acnes, one of the main causes of bacterial acne. By reducing the amount of sebum produced by the sebaceous glands, the blue light also tightens pores and reduces skin oiliness.
**Green light at 525 nm works at the dermis level (beneath the epidermis on the surface of the skin) to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, such as that found with freckles, age spots, and sun damage. It improves overall skin tone and also helps reduce the appearance of broken capillaries and varicose veins.
The LED light therapy provided by the BrightTherapy Trident SR11A Light Therapy System can be applied in continuous, or pulsing (5 Hz) modes.
