Frequently Asked Questions

Is light therapy a new technology?
Red and blue light therapy has been used in spas and dermatology offices worldwide for over 35 years to treat acne and the signs of aging. T�nda is the first at-home light therapy cleared by Health Canada to be safe, effective and available for personal use.

What is LED Photomodulation, and how does it work?
What is LED Photomodulation, and how does it work? LED Photomodulation is the interaction of light delivered through Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) to activate cells causing them to produce collagen, and multiply. One of the original applications for LEDs was PhotoDynamic Therapy (PDT) which uses photo-activated creams for the treatment of actinic keratosis and pre-cancerous lesions. LEDs offer a natural and non-ablative means to attain skin rejuvenation. The light from the LEDs interact with cells, stimulating them to produce collagen and elastin.

Does the treatment hurt? Will the LEDs used by Tanda burn or cut my skin?
No, the T�nda Professional Skincare System is non-invasive. This means it works without cutting into the skin. T�nda Professional treatments are extremely comfortable, safe and relaxing. Furthermore, the energy generated by LEDs is gentle enough for use on all skin types.

What is the diffence between the Tanda Professional Skincare System and Laser or Intense Pulsed Light treatments at the doctor's office?
T�nda Professional uses low-level light energy to stimulate your body�s own natural rejuvenation process, which improves your skin�s condition in a non-irritating and non-invasive way. There is no redness, swelling or downtime. Office-based treatments such as Lasers and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) systems work by damaging the skin, consequently promoting the healing process. These treatments are expensive and often require multiple visits. Alternatively, T�nda can be used in the privacy of your own home and costs much less than office-based laser and IPL treatments.

How is the Tanda Professional Skincare System superior to other light-based therapy products?
Light Sources: Unlike competing products, you can choose from two restorative light sources with the T�nda Professional Skincare System. The light penetrates directly below the skin�s surface; stimulating cell rejuvenation and making the skin appear healthier and younger. Power Output: Other home-based light therapy skin treatment systems emit light at a much lower output level than the T�nda Professional Skincare System. In fact, T�nda emits its two therapeutic lights at a level that is more than 20 times other products on the market. This ensures the deepest light penetration into the skin, creating optimal results. Emitting Area: The light emission area on the T�nda Professional Skincare System is over 10 times larger than other products. This design is incorporated for more effective treatment of larger surface areas, and targeted delivery of more light into the skin.

I have tried many treatments for my acne, how does Tanda Clear differ?
T�nda Clear is proven to be a safe and effective means to combat acne without burning or drying out your skin. T�nda Clear works by targeting and killing the P-acne bacteria that cause mild to moderate acne. When used as part of your daily skin care routine, T�nda Clear helps cure your existing blemishes while helping to prevent future breakouts.

What is the anti-aging application on the Tanda Regenerate device? Does it need to be used for the 18 minutes daily in order to see results, and maintain them?
The restorative light emitted from T�nda Regenerate successfully modulates the activity of fibroblasts that release collagen, and slows the production of enzymes that cause the skin tissue to break down. Consequently, this results in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles on your face. It is recommended that you use the device 2-3 times per week in order to maintain results.

Can Tanda Professional System be used elsewhere on my body?
Yes, you can use the device for acne on your back, chest, and legs. However, do not use the device over your thyroid gland, pregnant uterus, or any suspicious lesions that may be cancerous.

Is Tanda Professional System only for individual use?
The benefits of the Tända Professional Skincare System can be shared by the whole family. Easy to use and versatile, this skincare device is ideal for everyone. The treatment heads can be cleaned with a damp cloth and mild detergent.

Is there any UV danger when using Tanda Professional?
T�nda Professional is 100% natural, healthy, non-invasive and specifically designed for at-home use. T�nda Professional is also drug-free without any form of unfavorable side effects. It is non-ablative, non-invasive and for at-home use. It has been successfully used in skin care clinics and spas for more than 35 years, and is rapidly becoming the acne and skin rejuvenation treatment of choice for dermatologists and other skin care professionals.

Is Tanda Professional dangerous to use around my eyes?
No, T�nda was designed so that its treatment light will not harm your eyes and is only emitted when in contact with or in close proximity to your skin. Even if you accidentally look directly into the light being emitted during the treatment, your eyes will not be harmed.

Can Tanda Professional be used during pregnancy?
Tända is proven to be effective for acne caused by hormones produced during pregnancy. However, we would recommend that you contact your doctor before using the device. Furthermore, it is important to refrain from using Tända on your uterus while pregnant.

What do I get when I buy Tanda Professional?
When you purchase T�nda Professional you receive the following: T�nda Clear Blue Light Therapy Module (414nm LED), T�nda Regenerate Red Light Therapy Module (660nm LED), T�nda Professional rechargeable hand piece, T�nda recharging cradle, 9V medical grade universal power adapter, Protective eye goggles, User manual, 9V medical grade universal power adapter, and a Cloth carrying case.

Can Tanda Professional be overused?
Light therapy has been used for over 35 years without any recorded reports of adverse effects. Our recommended treatments are as follows: Use T�nda Clear for three minutes per problem area, twice a day. However, you can treat up to 18 minutes per area with the T�nda Clear application. For T�nda Regenerate treat your problem area for 18 minutes per day, for up to 38 minutes. Leave 24 hours between treatments so your body can run its natural collagen production cycle.

Will Tanda Professional burn my skin?
No, the T�nda Professional device has a built-in heat sensor. If the temperature exceeds the maximum temperature, the treatment cycle will be terminated.

Can I use Tanda Professional alongside other treatments?
Yes, T�nda Professional, which works using LED (light emitting diode) Photomodulation, can be administered alone or in conjunction with other treatments. We have found it to be highly complementary with treatments such as Botox, dermal fillers, non-ablative laser treatments, and IPL treatments.

Can Tanda Professional be used to effectively treat rosacea?
Tanda is currently conducting clinical studies with the University Health Network out of Toronto for the effectiveness of T�nda on Rosacea. The initial user preference study with the T�nda Clear and T�nda Regenerate combination protocol showed very favorable results. That being said, there are numerous studies showing that red and blue light therapy treatments are very effective for the prevention and cure of this skin condition. These studies have been conducted using the same wavelengths of light in a dermatological setting.

How many treatments will I need?
Typically treatments last several weeks or a few months. The time and number of treatments will vary depending on the severity of the problem. Continued use is required in order to maintain results.

What if Tanda Professional can not be used everyday due to travel and other reasons?
The T�nda Professional Skincare System should be used as directed, and is developed for your home and on-the-go use. T�nda�s lightweight design and compact form make traveling easy. If the T�nda Skincare System is not used for a period of time results will be hindered.
