LED skin devices don't have a lot of power, so they're unlikely to burn your skin. However, it is important to shield your eyes from the light while using them. In addition, if you are looking to treat a medical condition using LED light therapy, always confirm the diagnosis first with a doctor or medical professional. For example, some people use LED light therapy to treat sun damage. If you don't see a doctor, you may not know if it is actually skin cancer or another condition that won't be improved by the device. The Magic Wand Co. is not responsible for any damaged or irreversible changes to your skin.
