Hello, I haven't been here forever. I ran into this video, I live near SF and the people that make and do this are in Berkley.

I searched for this on this forum but no results came up.

I am interested in this.

http://knutekpro.com/Microcurrent_LED.html

I wonder if the led man can make something like this and if so how much he would charge.

Here is a flyer with the specks.

What do you all micro-current and LED home specialists think?

I really liked how large the lights are. Most of the hand helds that are out there right now the laser lights are sooo small.

I haven't heard from the LED man yet. But I called the company and they have a retail version for home use that is $398!!!

Below is one image of a few of the handhelds for the home "retail" version. I can't find an image that displays the whole machine for call their retail version, but they do have complete images of the professional version on their website. And the retail version is supposed to look the same only smaller:

Here is a link to the user manual for the professional version:

http://knutekpro.com/files/39391528.pdf

They said the only difference is the retail version is a smaller machine and it has 6 probes instead of 25 probes. They said it also comes with a yellow, red, green, blue and micro current/LED light. I don't know how 6 probes vs 25 probes effects how well it works but I am waiting for the owner to tell me more, he will call me later.

Below is what the professional Machine offers and they told me that the home version does all the same things that the professional version does even teeth whitening. I don't know what the strength difference is between professional and home version but I will find out:

Microcurrent sends a low level pulsating current that mimics the natural current in the body/skin to tone, sculpt and shape facial muscles for a non-surgical facelift and has been scientifically proven to increase...

* Penetration of active ingredients
* Blood Circulation
* Collagen/Elastin
* ATP (adenosine triphosphate)
* Lymphatic Drainage

Coherent LED light at frequencies between 470 nano meters and 640 nano meters has been proven scientifically…

* Red Light; reduces lines & wrinkles @ 640 nm!
* Yellow Light; reduces scars, lymphatic cleansing and wound healing @ 590 nm!
* Green Light; treats hyper-pigmentation @ 525 nm!
* Blue Light; treats acne, rosacea, abnormalities + teeth whitening @ 470 nm!

Microcurrent/LED light treatment works together synergistically to achieve a new level of results! Microcurrent from 10 to 320 µa mimics the natural electrical current in the body. It re-educates the underlying muscle to lift, tone and sculpt the face while stimulating collagen, elastin and ATP for non-surgical face-lifts.

LED Light stimulates collagen and elastin and activates enzymes, such as catalase, diminishes unnecessary color amines in tissues, speeds up compounding glycogen, protein, and fibrin and increases tissue’s metabolism, relaxes skin and ligaments. It soften thrombus, diminishes bloat ness, discolorations, removes fattiness, reduces lines and wrinkles, eliminate pouch and black eye orbit, whitens, brightens and protects the skin and so much more...

Knutek Inc. has designed and developed an entirely new state of the art esthetic system designed to treat different skin conditions. Dermacycling is a protocol that involves the use of Microcurrent/LED lights and topicals that have been specifically designed to increase collagen and elastin levels, treat a wide range of dermatological conditions, such as acne, rosacea, blemishes, wrinkles, actinic keratosis, non-melanoma skin cancers, skin rejuvenation, vitiligo and wound healing post elective surgery. The Microcurrent also allows you to do non-surgical facelifts and achieve a new level of results in skin beautification!

This complete system is known as “The Dermacycle System”.

This is a lot for $398 at least when I compare it to everything else out there. But I don't know the specs enough on how microcurrent and all these different colored lights work.

All I know is that the collagen in my face is dissapearing and at 39 I am looking older than I want to look. I try to understand all the microcurrent specks and all the LED and colored light specks and I can't tell which way is up or down.

Any of you ladies who know your stuff I sure would appreciate your input.

I found out that the hand held version is not a smaller version of the bigger machine it is just a hand held version and it does much less than the professional version.

I will be going to a practitioner locally (esthitician) will post on how the treatment is and what it costs. I will probably do the treatment this weekend in SF unless they find a practitioner that is closer to me.

I don't think I would spend $398 to purchase this hand held. However, if they sold it to consumers I would consider purchasing the professional version. I have no idea what the pro version costs but I will try to find out.

LED man never responded. I guess he is too busy. Weird that no one has anything to say about this am I posting this in the wrong thread?
