We are all constantly looking for the next best thing when it comes to taking care of our skin. From the newest serum to popular multi-step moisturizing routines, people will go to all sorts of lengths to achieve soft, supple skin. But what if taking care of your skin didn’t have to be such a time-consuming, complicated process? Enter, body LED skincare.
LED skincare involves some of the newest technology in the industry. Developed by Dr. Dennis Gross, the DRx SpectraLite™ BodyWare Pro is an FDA CLEARED light therapy device that treats aging & acne plus relieves mild muscle and joint pain in the body. Treatments can be done by yourself and last between just three minutes for anti-aging or acne-fighting treatments, or as long as 14 minutes for pain relief treatments.
Read on for the benefits of body LED skincare, tips for using the LED body light and specific instructions on how it works.
What Is LED Skincare & How Does It Work?
LED, or light-emitting diode, skincare uses varying wavelengths of light to help treat common issues such as acne, inflammation, and aging effects. When used as directed, LED skincare therapy can help skin problems improve over time. By maintaining your LED skin treatments, you can easily maintain positive results.
Many at-home LED skincare devices have been developed, but few compare to Dr. Dennis Gross’s. Its ease of use and time to efficacy make it stand out as a superior LED body light. A combination of 148 red lights + 68 blue lights work together to treat wrinkles and acne, help reduce visible dark spots, and alleviate mild pain over the entire body. In just 3 minutes, red lights penetrate deep within the skin’s dermis to stimulate collagen production for anti-aging benefits while blue lights destroy P. acnes bacteria to treat and prevent breakouts.
An additional 14-minute mode provides intermittent pain relief through anti-inflammatory red lights. Within days of using full-body red light therapy, you will see a reduction of acne and in weeks, see lines begin to fade. In 10- weeks, collagen builds significantly, and deep wrinkles visibly improve.
Instructions for the BodyWare Pro involve just 2 simple steps.
For aging and acne treatments:
- On clean, dry skin, place the device directly onto the desired treatment site. Mold device for a snug fit (arms, shoulders, legs, knees) or lay flat (upper/lower back, chest).
- Press and hold the button for 2 seconds to turn on the device. Press again to select the light setting (red, blue, red+blue) and use it for the programmed treatment time of 3 minutes (per treatment site). The device will shut off automatically when treatment is complete.
For pain relief treatments:
- Press and hold the button for 2 seconds to turn on the device and use it for the programmed treatment time of 14 minutes (per treatment site). The device will shut off automatically when treatment is complete.
- Remove device. For optimal results, use the device once daily per treatment site and follow with Alpha Beta® Exfoliating Body Treatment 2-3 times weekly.

Tips for Using an LED Skincare Device
For those who are new to using an LED skincare device, there are several tips to keep in mind so you too can see success with your treatments:
Know Differences Between Settings
Red and blue lights have different effects on your skin so making sure you are using the correct settings for your desired results is key to seeing success.
Red Light Therapy – also known as infrared light, red light therapy treats issues with the epidermis or outermost layer of the skin. This type of light is commonly known to help improve collagen levels, which in turn can improve fine lines or wrinkles and leave you with a healthy glow.
Blue Light Therapy – this type of therapy differs in that it targets the sebaceous glands under your skin, which is where oil is produced. Blue light therapy reduces the activity of these glands, leading to clearer skin with fewer acne breakouts.
Maintain Your Treatment Schedule
LED skin care treatments work best when they are performed on a consistent schedule. Whether you are visiting a specialist or performing the treatments at home, it is vital that they are done for a set period of time on a set treatments schedule. Most LED skincare treatments require up to 10 sessions before seeing results.
Fortunately, the DRx SpectraLite™ skincare device can perform up to 46 anti-aging and acne-fighting treatments per charge. This means you will never be inconvenienced with low battery life and can keep your time and energy focused on achieving results.
There are many benefits of using body LED skincare devices. From reducing wrinkles, fighting fine lines, clearing skin, battling acne, or even getting temporary pain relief for conditions like arthritis, starting a LED skincare routine might be just what you are looking for.
