LED light therapy is super beneficial for your skin. In recent years clinical strength LED treatments have been developed that you can use from the comfort of your home. Now dermatologist and founder of MMSkincare, Ellen Marmur, MD, has developed a sleeker, smaller, ergonomically designed device so you can easily take it on the go.
The MMSphere 2GO ($395) is the first device on the market that offers the skin and wellness benefits of light therapy both portably and at home. The device helps treat acne, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and uneven skin tone. In addition to all these skin-care benefits, the MMSphere 2GO also uses red LED lights based on NASA science to help reduce anxiety and help with sleep. Dr. Marmur’s favorite benefits are the testimonials she’s heard “about how much it improved emotional wellness for pain, headaches, migraines, sleep, cramps, anxiety, SAD (seasonal affective disorder) and better concentration and memory.”
Dr. Marmur says the MMSphere 2GO is “like your skin’s best friend. No pain, no stinging, all goodness. With nine settings, your treatment setting can address your ever-changing skin: Breakout day? Use blue! Dull skin day? Use purple. Bad pigment or wrinkles? Use green. [Have a] rosacea flare? Green. You picked pimples again? Use red and stop picking, please,” says Dr. Marmur.
“Every detail of this design was to make it a pleasure to simply take care of your skin as safely and effectively as I would do for you in the office,” says Dr. Marmur. When designing the LED light device, she paid attention to even the smallest details. “The tactile knob is reminiscent of an old school radio. The halo treats a large skin area like the face, neck and chest at once. The handle is ergonomic and holds your phone, so you can multitask for the 20-minute session.”
Dr. Marmur wanted grabbing the MMSphere 2GO to be as easy as taking your favorite hair product with you on the go. “Making it more accessible improves the user experience, in medicine, we call that better compliance, which we know leads to better results.” For even more ease of use, the portable case features compartments for makeup and hair-care products.
