“I think people are a little overwhelmed,” acknowledges New York dermatologist Ellen Marmur, M.D., who created her light-emitting MMSphere 2.0—which offers four different colors of glow, each with its own alleged benefit—to help her patients maintain their in-office results between appointments. “There’s such a variety of devices coming to market now—you can wind up choosing blindly if you don’t understand the technology,” says Marmur
This splurge-y LED device is more powerful than most other at-home models. Created by dermatologist Ellen Marmur with the LED technology used in her office, the MMSkincare MMSphere 2.0 uses light therapy to help alleviate conditions such as inflammation or pain and promote tissue regrowth.
