You are not going to get rid of a pimple overnight lol those negative reviews are ridiculous. I experience mild hormonal acne on my chin and on my forehead. If I use this device 2xs daily on those areas it significantly reduces inflammation and prevents further breakouts in those areas. There is just no way this device is drying. These type of devices are highly recommended by top notch professionals and when used correctly and with an open mind they are highly effective. You are much better off to use this than not to. It is safe, non-damaging and as effective as it possibly could be. The only "con" is that it is so tiny and therefore the coverage area is minimal, and you hold 3 minutes in each area. This will be my travel, quick, easy and convenient device. After seeing how effective this light therapy actually is, I will be purchasing a full face professional device as well.
Also, when you feel the first onset of a breakout, the slightest tingle or sore sensation of emerging acne, USE THIS DEVICE immediately! You will be so impressed. It makes a huge difference!
This device came and I can't speak to its effectiveness yet, but there are are at least 2 particles embedded under the glass, one mystery black dot, and one small hair, so I'm a little grossed out! I can't wipe them off, and you can tell by tilting it around that they're definitely under the glass -- so maybe it shouldn't bother me. But every time I pick it up i def get a little "ick" feeling, imagining about someone else's hair so close to my face skin. It's hard to get a pic since the device is so little, but I gave it a shot!

I like this want, definitely smaller than I expected. I use the solawave serum in combination, and I've noticed a good improvement in my skin. I get acne on my jawline, and using it 2-4 times a week has cleared my skin up nicely.
I like that it counts down for you, and even though it's smaller than expected, it travels easily.

I've used this item on several occasions over the last month. Its easy to operate. Just power on & hold over area for 3 beeps (3 minutes). It worked great on a zit that I felt coming in on my chin. It went away! I also used it to help heal other zits and it seemed to speed it up. Defintely recommend for its ease & simplicity!

It always helps with inflammation whenever i have an angry spot on my skin.
Ive also had reduced texture on my forehead since using it.
I use 2x a day.

I am a licensed esthetician and i use LED on almost all my clients. Red and blue light therapy are amazing on their own, but combined they give the best results in my opinion. This is so quick and easy! I struggle with occasional hormonal acne and i used this on a couple spots and saw almost instant results. Price point is more than reasonable considering how much getting a spa LED treatment costs (even though professional led lights are a little better quality) . I think this is an amazing product to add into your homecare to use in between facial treatments.

I bought this for my 15 1/2 year old daughter who has acne on her forehead. After just two times of use, there is a noticeable difference on the redness & inflammation.

This is such a great tool. It's simple to place in your bag and use as needed for trouble areas. It significantly controls any new breakout. Very impressed with this little product. I use it on my teens as with great results.

i cannot express how much i love this product! i was struggling with perioral dermatitis and was having issues healing it. I used this product twice on the first day of having it and, by the next day, my skin was not as red and the texture from the perioral dermatitis was significantly reduced. i am seriously obsessed with my results!! it is a smaller device than i expected but it works super well!! i highly recommend:)

I was notttt expecting this to do anything but grabbed one because of the great reviews. It will completely flatten my blemishes overnight and also reduces redness next to my nose and chin. I had visible results after a few days, im so impressed and would love to buy the full size mask.

I had a huge cystic acne spot that popped up the day before family pictures and was desperate for solutions. I used ice, hot compress, spot cream, and zit patch. I used this after I took off the zit patch and washed my face and swelling went significantly down! Not saying this was the sole cure but definitely a huge contribution

Once it died I havnt been able to get it to charge it will run but the lifht goes off after 30s.
FitzVI from North Carolina
Solawave's product guide specifically states having Fitzpatrick type V and VI as a contraindication to use of this device. So disappointing and I can't imagine why it would make it past FDA to market without clearly saying in its marketing/product description that it's only for light and tan skintones. Not at all willing to be a guinea pig and find out what it will do to my skin. Back it goes. Shoutout to Solawave for being a complete waste of my time. Never again.

This works great on occasional mystery pimples! Shrinks em fast and without drying out your skin like zit cream — much faster than trying to wait for it to go away. Follow directions for it to work it's magic!

I love this little bundle of light joy. This one helps in a pinch alleviate an acne moment. I loved how easy it is to use and the color exterior is a total bonus. Great for value!

I bought and tried the Solawave Acne Treatment device just as I was developing a pimple. I read the directions and used the device (as instructed) before going to bed. When I woke up in the morning, the pimple was still there; absolutely no changes to report. After multiple days of use, there is still no visible change. Different things work for different people, and unfortunately this doesn't seem to work for me. I can't really justify spending almost $100 on something that doesn't deliver any results. Note: I do not have severe acne.
Sammi from CA
This little gadget is so cute, I love it. Use it whenever I start to see a pimple coming out and it definitely helps to reduce the size of the pimple the next day.
brie from Brentwood
everyone says this product is amazing and gets rid of the pimple right away. I've had this thing for 2 weeks, it does not do that at all. been fighting off one pimple for a week after using this tool everyday. massive dryness after usage. all it does is help with a little bit of redness.
Teresa from Los Angeles
I was hesitant to buy this product at first because of the price but I am so glad I did because I was desperately in need of getting rid of my acne in time. Highly recommend as it sped the healing process up so quickly.

with all the comments about this product including not on the Ulta website. I thought it would actually work. used it consistently had it for a few days now to a week. helps with inflammation does not output the friendness or get rid of the sick completely. I'm still fighting off one with this tool after a week and I've been using it everyday.
Erin from California
I bought this for my teen daughter who struggles with an occasional breakout. Hold it on the blemish for 3 minutes and it's gone the next day!
Jus from los angeles
I've had breakouts on the side of my face and a giant zit that popped up on my chin. I used this consistently and the zit went away super quickly and I've seen a notable difference on the sides of my face!
Jasmine from Los Angeles
This healed my nasty pimples so quickly! I didn't think it would be so effective. Recommend especially if you are trying to zap something overnight.
Chris from Los Angeles
Used it recently on a zit that popped up on a business trip. Had it cleared up by the morning. Thank you!
Sara from Sacramento
After a few times using the Bye Acne red light treatment my blemishes have disappeared and the skin discoloration has faded! I'm so impressed with this product.
