How does Rouge compare to the competitors?
Buying a Red Light Therapy Panel is a serious decision. There are many things that come into consideration and a lot of information out in the online world that can make the decision a little bewildering and quite frankly even a little overwhelming.
We would like to provide some guidance, based on objective criteria; offering unbiased and helpful information so that you can make the best choice for yourself.
There are also different sets of variables that as an informed consumer you will want to consider:
First Questions to ask:
IS THE DEVICE THIRD PARTY TESTED?
Without this data you have no trustworthy point of reference. As a consumer, you have the right not to blindly trust a manufacturer or retailer you have never met.
The question to consider with any budget: Is it worth the risk to buy a relatively cheap panel that may not deliver the benefits you are looking for. Many red light device sellers have absolutely no data to prove the wavelength nor strength of their lights. If the company does not have a third party testing data, this means you are in a literal jungle as far as what you could be buying. After all, LED’s can produce many wavelengths, and if they do not peak specifically on ones that have proven benefits, you might be missing out on the most optimal wavelengths red light therapy has to offer.
If the irradiance (strength of the LED’s) is not clinically effective (please bear in mind that cheap handheld light testers are not a reliable source of data) then you are wasting your time in front of the panel as you will not be getting the amount of light energy that it takes to elicit the benefits of Red Light Therapy.
The kind of sophisticated equipment that can accurately test wavelengths past the 800nm range can be found in highly reputable light labs such as Independent Testing Labs of Colorado which is where we sent our most popular panel to be tested.
We are proud of the results that clearly show in scientific language how we are head and shoulders above the competition . Here we have it clearly explained in layperson’s terms.
Second Question to ask:
WHAT ARE YOUR WARRANTY TERMS AND RETURN POLICY?
When making a sizeable investment such as a Red Light Therapy panel, you want to make sure that the company offers
- Good communication – are they reachable by phone? Do they call you back right away after you leave a message or do you have to wait days for a response?
- A fair return policy
- A strong warranty
- If your light gets lost or damaged in transit, are you able to reach them easily for assistance
At Rouge we are here with you from the moment you place your order and well beyond. Our strong 3-year warranty and generous return policy coupled with our rigorous customer service support means you can buy with confidence. We are available to help you with immediate responses, a live phone line and hands-on attention.
If you do business with a company that cuts corners on their customer service, warranty and return policies, you might be left with no recourse should you have a problem or need help with anything.
Please note that companies who only have an email address but no phone number to call may not be based in the country they are marketing to; they are really selling online from far-away country and can simply stop communicating if they no longer wish to deal with an issue.
HOW IS THE ROUGE DESIGN DIFFERENT THAN OTHER BRANDS?
We are very proud of the design of our panels – rigorous standards meet cutting edge design in order to deliver the best results.
The first superior design aspect of our lights is construction integrity.
Why is this important?
As with any electronic device, solid construction is a must, as Red Light Therapy lights must be able to endure the rigors of shipping and everyday use. The outer metal casing protects our lights so well that we have had almost no issues with shipping damage or breakage of any kind. The old plexiglass faced panels shown on the right of Figure 1 below are using outdated technology from the cheaper, grow light industry style lights. We strongly urge consumers to avoid this model as it represents the most primitive styles of lights which has long become obsolete.
HOW ARE YOU DIFFERENT FROM SOME OF THE OTHER BIG NAMES?
Primarily, one of the biggest differences lies in the design of the lenses; our LED’s have a 30 degree beam angle delivered by a 5 Watt LED.
Imagine a flashlight if you will, with a broader, weaker beam which can be achieved by adjusting the focus angle versus the tighter, narrower beam which gives you a much brighter light. This is the difference between the 90-, 60- and 30-degree beam angles. Rouge lights all have 30-degree beam angles which is why we space our LED’s so close together; giving you a stronger and brighter overall blanket of light rather than spreading 200 or 300 LED’s out more on a bigger panel, forcing a wider beam angle to compensate for the larger gaps between the LED’s.
Among all of our competitors’ with third party testing data – we had the highest level of irradiance, which is what you can see for yourself from the lab results which translates into a more versatile panel, allowing for the user to back away for greater coverage or stand closer for deeper treatment without losing generous coverage.
Additionally, all of our panels feature 5 Watt LED’s which have a 100 000 hour lifespan. This is an immensely long time if put into perspective the number of treatments they can deliver.
Please refer to Figure 2-4 to see how we compare against some of the other brands.
We hope this helps you make an informed decision; please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
