During our latest episode of IGTV, Vanessa Grutman, Business Director at Project Skin MD, had the opportunity to connect with Jennifer Brodeur, founder of JB Skin Guru, an inspiring female entrepreneur, teacher, skin strategist and skincare Guru to Oprah and Michelle Obama, to name a few. She is also the mastermind and creator behind MAX+, a non-invasive LED treatment device and the only treatment of its kind we trust at Project Skin MD.
Curious to learn what sets MAX+ apart? Read on or check out the full episode on our IGTV channel here.
Back in 2003 when MAX+ was created, no one was talking about LED treatments for your skin. But JB, with her restless entrepreneurial mind and passion for innovation, wanted to create something different than the lasers and microdermabrasion treatments that were on the market at the time.
To JB, the potential of LED was as simple as looking at the principle laws of photobiology: light evokes changes at a cellular level, and cellular changes lead to chemical and physiological changes. Our skin is no exception!
So with extensive research and development, MAX+ was born. This LED light therapy treatment delivers light energy in a similar way plants absorb light energy from the sun. MAX+ emits UV-free, beneficial light rays that energize cells and stimulate the body’s own natural process to build new proteins and regenerate cells.
MAX+ emits different wavelengths of light to offer different benefits to the skin including stimulating collagen production, reducing inflammation, speeding healing, increasing circulation and destroying acne bacteria. At Project Skin, we worked with JB to design our own unique #PSProtocols, tailored to provide the best outcomes based on your unique skin needs.

Our MAX+ protocols mix and match different wavelengths, evoking a synergy phenomenon, i.e. better outcomes by inducing the different benefits associated with each:
Violet light (415nm) – kills acne bacteria and stops bacteria proliferation; an early study found 76% of inflammatory lesions disappeared with 6 MAX+ sessions using this wavelength alone!
Blue light (450nm) – supports with intercellular communication for proper skin function. Bonus: blue light has been proven to help relieve symptoms of seasonal depression and insomnia!
Green light (525nm) – heals post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation due to skin trauma
Yellow light (590nm) – JB’s go-to to get red-carpet-ready, this wavelength reduces redness, inflammation and provides an instant glow
Red light (633nm) – for skin rejuvenation and collagen production to soften fine lines and wrinkles
Infrared light (830nm) – to reduce all inflammatory processes occurring in the skin, this wavelength is a must-have in our acne and rosacea programs
What makes MAX+ different from the other LED treatments offered in clinics or for at home use?
MAX+ uses the highest quality medical-grade treatment arm, which oscillates around your face, evenly distributing the light therapy during your treatment. Other treatments, particularly at home masks, pose the risk of imposing a thermal effect by inducing heat, which can trigger skin issues including melasma, pigmentation and damage at a cellular level. Yikes!
MAX+ is designed to nourish, restore skin function and reduce inflammation. As we know, healthy skin will respond better to other treatments and enhance the benefits of your home-care regimen, making MAX+ the perfect addition to any treatment plan.
Treatment plans will vary based on individuals skin needs. At Project Skin MD, we offer MAX+ treatments both independently and as apart of our #PSGlowroom Facials, Acne treatment plans, and more! MAX+ is safe to use for patients of any age, during pregnancy and has no down-time – on the contrary you’ll want to get out and show off that immediate glow!
