a Quick AmRed Overview ...
When we were first
invited to see this new LED technology in
prototype, we were extremely interested in its
possibilities... Then, after 10 months of
clinical trials, we were convinced that it would
become our new 'standard' in a photo rejuvenation
head. Simply put, it marries the best in an amber
output - prompting a better lymphatic push - with
the advantages of red, better serving Rosacea and
other red-based, ruddy anomalies. And it would do
so without any 'destructive interference'
between wavelengths, from a single LED substrate
- unlike placing one wavelength next to
While appearing basically
'red' to the human eye (unless placed next to an
actual red LED, where it then appears to have a
tinge of 'orange'), a central 605nm peak
wavelength sweeps down to 585nm ... and up
to 635nm. It is a broader 'bell curve' in this
new LED technology that makes it possible -
without a single drawback in photo
rejuvenation applications ... only benefit.
is Spectral Bandpass Technology ?
It would be originally
used on our large Planar Panel Head to reduce the
perceived optical glare to the eye where
there were fistfuls of LEDs - while allowing the
desired wavelengths to pass without restriction.
It essentially involves a wavelength-specific
filter that's placed in front of the LEDs. Now,
with the large wand-based Cello heads, we've
brought the addition to these heads as well. Our
AmRed filter needed to be 'broader' in the light
it would pass because the AmRed LEDs have a
broader spectral output curve that sweeps into
the amber range and to 'narrow-filter' it too
much would impede the innate benefits of the
AmRed technology. With that, it's still a 'Bright
Head', but offers less eye-wincing glare than
without the bandpass filtering.
With the Blues and
Greens, we could use more 'narrow-band'
filtration and, with entirely different optical
designs, we could reduce the apparent
brightness more significantly - as well as
'soften' the LEDs through two-stage diffusion. It
might be noted here that the human eye has
non-linear sensitivity to color and that's why
all of our heads through the years would appear
to have different 'brightness levels' - even as
they'd measure the same on the lab bench,
relative to the desired wavelength. Spectral
Bandpass Filtering takes this phenomenon a step
further. But do know that, unlike lasers, our
LEDs will do no harm to the eyes. In fact, with
the eyelids closed - as would be typical - more
light streams through the lids as you lay around
the pool without sunglasses.
more to the filtering! ...
LEDs are designated as a one-number wavelength
for convenience, that single number would
represent the peak output wavelength.
In truth, LEDs of a given 'color' emit
light outside of the stated wavelength.
And the 'extra light' not only creates more
optical glare to the eye, but can reduce
the desired output of the LEDs by way of
'destructive interference' - a law of physics
(which is why no maker should ever
combine red and blue in the same head). So
let's see what spectral filtering can achieve ...
A 'Red' LED has a broader
output than a
single number implies. In fact, observe
blue 'bump' at the lower portion of the
spectrum! By our use of Spectral Bandpass
Filtering, we can get just the
portion of the
spectrum we desire in our AmRed LEDs.
But there's MORE

to 'the left' of the desired AmRed

All this while reducing
optical glare to the
eye. No eye protection required.
Okay, enough of
the boring stuff. Sorry. On with the

The AmRed 605 Broad Curve
Yes, one already comes with your
base Cello system. But for those who want to work
wicked-fast, your Cello base unit, with its
'stereo outputs', can run two at once. Another
consideration: If you're reasonably coordinated,
you can do a face with one AmRed Cello Head -
while treating the upper-chest, decollete area
(which is about the same surface area as another
face) with the other. That's why it's

Blues' & 'Soft 'Greens'. They're Different.
A different optical
design than the AmReds, optimized for surface and
near-surface conditions. In testing a variety of
LED 'Blues', we applied a single LED to
single acne blemishes. And what did we come to
discover? That other blemish outbreaks as far as
10~15 millimeters away were also treated! We
learned that providing the appropriate wavelength
to an area pulled the oxygen-carrying
endogenic porphyrins in the body to to a broader
swatch outside of the LED beam! This,
combined with larger LEDs - relative to our
previous Blue wand heads - allowed us to produce
the large Cello version more efficiently that
should, otherwise, cost more. As it turns
out, as another 'near-surface' consideration, we
were able to take a similar approach to our
'Green Beam' melanocyte regulation head. Both use
narrow-band filtering that also feature moderate
diffusion in the multi-stage filters. And beyond
the filters - in front of each LED - are
concentric diffusion discs that further disperse
the beam in the way we wanted. In all, relatively
low impact on the eyes while producing the
selective wavelengths we desired.
The Soft Acne Blue Beam 420 Cello Head
This DermaWave head emits a
true 420 nanometer wavelength
cluster of light, penetrating the skin tissue to
target mild to moderate P. acne, specifically
(the 'P' stands for Propionibacterium) .
Unlike the more common 460 - 470 nanometer
"Blue Heads" offered by others (often
inaccurately labeling them as 420nm, when
actually measured at 470nm), the DermaWave Blue
Beam, operating at a higher frequency (shorter
wavelength), results in a true
counter-bacterial response by way of photo
destruction of common acne bacteria. This
particular spectrum increases the release of
oxygen-carrying, endogenic porphyrins -- that
attacks the P. acne bacteria below the skin
surface at a faster rate than the problematic
Propionibacterium, itself, can reproduce. This
head is not appropriate for cystic acne
(uncommon), however, but rather the more common
inflammatory acne. It is better suited for mild
to moderate acne.
The highly unique
DermaWave 'Blue Beam Head' may be used alone for
acne-specific treatments or be incorporated
within other skin care sessions. It may be used
in conjunction with your favorite acne-related
products, if you prefer, without harm. The 420
nanometer Blue Beam Head is also used in
combination with the standard Photo Rejuvenation
head that is normally equipped with the DermaWave
console to help reduce acne-related inflammation.
Need only be used on acne affected areas, so it
doesn't take too long per session.

Green Beam Melanocyte 525 Cello Head:
It's now been demonstrated that
the application of this wavelength helps regulate
the skin's melanocytes, further improving
the flesh tone when it follows an application of
the standard photo rejuvenation head. It's what
to use when a more even and improved skin tone is
your specific Photo Rejuvenation target.
An allied benefit is that it can also increase
the longevity of the flesh tone achieved with
the standard head through melanocyte regulation.
