Pros and Cons
What’s good about this therapy?
Many good things go in its way such as..
It give some solid results. In care you have outbreak of acne on your face and you are eager to get rid of these out bursting little monsters. This useful mask can dry these pimple up for you and help you get rid of these erupting and oozing things.
It can give to relief from facial inflammation overnight ( varies from person to person)
This treatment is same as that done by dermatologists with the help of chemical named “Levulan” which make your cells more sensitive to blue light. Compared to that this treatment is weak, wavelength is controlled and can be done at home without side effects.As it is weaker, it takes more time as compared to dermatologist’s work but for self treatment, it is safe.
It has a built in eye protection. You need not to worry about eyes while wearing this masks, as it protects them from the effective blue light which targets germs on your face.
What Bad about this therapy
Only bad thing is that manufacturer want to take money from you every month. YES! we are talking about the activator thing. It is nothing just a counter which cannot be reused and only have 30 times permission to use your mask. You need to connect it to mask to start a session. SO if your are planning to buy the mask for your acne, don’t except that Neutrogena will leave you forever now, be ready to spend handful of money on mask every month.
it’s just like buying a dose of medicine every month like any other applicable product.so if mask is effective for you, we think you would also be ready to compromise on this activator thing because after all facial health is worth spending some money on it every month.
