If you are not using Red Light therapy for your skin, you really should! Red Light therapy, aka Photobiomodulation (PBMT), has been proven time and time again to have AMAZING skin benefits including wrinkle, acne, hyperpigmentation and scarring reduction. But, if you are wanting even better results, you have to try this powerful green tea serum in conjunction with your Red Light therapy treatments. It truly is the best non-surgery wrinkle reduction treatment!

It’s Easier Than You Might Think!


There is now incredible research on how green tea, when used with PBMT, can impact your skin phenomenally. Now, green tea on its own won’t be the most helpful, but there is a Green Rooibos Extract serum from Maysama that has been specifically tested and proven to work. This serum is unique because the green rooibos extract is aspalathin-enriched, an antioxidant powerhouse, with 3% niacinamide, and an extensive line up of multi-tasking ingredients including Centella asiatica, Sea-buckthorn and Liquorice. Inspired by Korean Beauty, it is formulated to protect and repair your skin from environmental damage and promote healthy skin.

Proof it really Works!

New data confirms beyond doubt that Maysama Green Rooibos Pressed Serum, when used in conjunction with your red light treatment will enhance results for skin rejuvenation on average 2.6 times, relative to using PBMT alone.

First, I want to note why green tea has such a special relationship with PBMT. We know that Red Light stimulates mitochondria, the powerhouse of our cells, and helps increase cellular energy by speeding up the production of ATP. This process, known as mitochondrial respiration, also generates free radicals, which are important signaling molecules to drive cellular processes like cell proliferation, cell migration and protein synthesis.


Extended use of PBMT, however, can lead to a build-up of free radicals, which start to inhibit our cellular processes and slow the efficiency of your Red Light device. Our cells’ natural antioxidant systems help to keep the number of free radicals in check, but supplementing your natural antioxidant defenses with topical antioxidants, like green tea, allow your Red Light device to work more efficiently. This is because, unlike other antioxidants, green tea polyphenols target free radicals at the source, in the mitochondrial membrane where they are produced.

The Maysama serum uses fresh green rooibos tea leaves that have not oxidized. These leaves have a high polyphenolic content, which gives them a high antioxidant capacity. Maysama’s Green Rooibos Pressed Serum is prepared from sustainably farmed rooibos and undergoes patented extraction, which increases its antioxidant potential 70-fold, making it probably the most pure and potent green tea serum on the market.

How Did the Serum Help Reduce Wrinkles?

Mito Red Light and Maysama set up an extended product test using the Green Rooibos Pressed Serum as a co-treatment with a Mito Red’s 60 LED panel (the same kind as what use here in our office – only ours are bigger!). A group of 16 volunteers, women aged 27 to 65, used the combination therapy for a period of 3 months, after which changes to skin were assessed.



Without a doubt, Mito Red Light and Maysama’s Green Rooibos Pressed Serum are the perfect pairing!  With more than double the results for reduction in erythema and pigmentation, and nearly three times the outcomes for reduction in wrinkles and increased elasticity, this combination therapy is set to supercharge your Red Light Therapy treatment for skin rejuvenation.


In just three months you could be looking at 55% increased skin elasticity and nearly 30% reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

Skin tone is one of the factors that is said to age your complexion even more than wrinkles. Pigmentation and erythema (redness) are key things that contribute to overall skin tone. Your Mito Red Light + Maysama combination therapy will also bring you an improvement in skin tone, with 30% less erythema and 23% reduction in pigmentation (see more below!). And last but not least, inflammation governs skin health and contributes to premature aging. Your Mito-Maysama combo therapy will reduce inflammation by 16% and ensure that your skin stays healthy and youthful for the long term.


As noted above, not only were wrinkles greatly reduced, but so were other skin conditions! One of those conditions is erythema, a type of rosacea. Erythema is redness of the skin or mucous membranes caused by increased blood flow in superficial capillaries.

Results show that continued use of PBMT over three months can reduce erythema by 12.99% – which is great news for rosacea sufferers – but when combined with Maysama Green Rooibos Pressed Serum, the data shows a further 30.14% reduction to erythema. That’s more than twice what was achieved with stand-alone Red Light therapy.



Hyperpigmentation is a common skin concern, caused by over production of melanin in the skin, and includes liver spots, freckles and melasma. It is generally caused by sun exposure and acne scarring. The results confirm that red light therapy is beneficial for reducing hyperpigmentation!

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
