I've seen messages about the Clearlight treatments but has anyoe tried this light treatment syste which is much less expensive? Its still expensive so I would love some feedback before ordering for it.
Thanks!

I doubt it will work. In the clinical studies they used a 400 watt high intensity metal halide light bulb. This uses 20 watt flourescent bulb. I would save your money.

However the good news is that to design one around a high intensity bulb shouldn't cost more than $1000 and it would be every bit as effective as the $50,000 the dermatologists use. I don't know why any companies have not jumped on this...
Hey, i am almost done with my omnilux course. i have had 6 sessions and have 2 more to go. I go twice a week. It only takes like 20 minutes each time where you lay under this light. Its warm, but other than that you cant feel anything. There are no side effects at all. The change so far isnt too drastic, i mean, my skin is clearer but not like, wow, this is awesome. However, they said that when undergoing the treatment, it might get bad before it gets better, and i think thats what it is doing now. The cost is 800 dollars, 100 dollars every 20 minutes. Kinda steep. But you do get a ninth treatment if you need it for free. I dont know if it is really worth it yet, but ill keep you updated and let you know. Ill be done with the treatment by dec 10.

Nah, shouldn't cost nearly even that much... by my calculations, you should be able to get a 400W metal halide bulb (exactly the same as Clearlight) with power supply (ballast) and cords for $150-200 off the internet. Then you just need to build a box with some reflectors in it, then stick your head in the box... I've been meaning to try this, but hey, $150 is still a lot of money, even if it isn't $800 for a few treatments...
Well I've tried it and so far it hasn't worked (presumably because the bulb did not peak at the correct wavelength).

If someone can find me a bulb that is very focused around 420nm I will buy it and give it a try..

Just google for "metal halide 400w" or something like that. Any normal metal halide bulb should peak around 420 nm. The only problem is that along with the $45 bulb you need to buy wiring and a power supply (they don't work in normal sockets).

Not many peak at 420nm. The ones that come close are the 10,000k german made reef aquarium bulbs. However they have a pretty even spectrum and a number of other peaks as well so it is not ideal.
