Talika light Duo review

Have you seen this before? What do you think this is? Thought this is an interesting little gadget with you gals since i have since it being featured on TV and magazines.




A small product similiar in size to a compact powder packed with power. This little portable device is used as a light therapy. The TALIKA laboratories have designed this DUO, a portable device with each side emitting a distinct light wave:


- on one side, the light 590® gives out yellow light reactivates collagen synthesis and elastin production.


reactivates collagen synthesis and elastin production.


on the other side, the light 525® - gives out a green light


regulates the production of melanin, responsible for skin colouring



The combined use of both these treatments, wrinkles are smoothed, brown spots are reduced and the skin looks fuller, lighter, more radiant and glowing: younger-looking.


How light works in anti-age treatments

Light is composed of particles that travel at 300,000 km/second, whilst vibrating at a variable frequency.

The low frequencies of these vibrations correspond to invisible waves (radio, satellite, etc.).

If the frequency increases it becomes detectable to our eyes and enters the realm of visible light (which is composed of a series of colours, from orange to violet).
Beyond a certain frequency, we talk of ultra-violet light, and if we increase it even further, we reach the field of very high energy: X rays and then gamma rays.


Light 590® and light 525®, caring light sources.
In the 1970s, NASA, thanks to its experience with space flight, revealed that the cell metabolism is reanimated by visible light. This property of animal cells to responded positively to light makes them similar to plant cells, which cannot without sunlight:
in the same way as during the plant photosynthesis process, light comes into contact with the cells and activates their metabolism. With the appearance of new light sources such as light 590® and light 525®: use the light rays corresponding to a spread of pure colours ranging from blue to red. These rays, with no heat source, emitted by diodes, activates the cells deep down and obtains spectacular results.

1.Light590® collagen booster:
The diodes emit a precise frequency (590 nm) in a controlled, pulsed manner to stimulate the fibroblasts which produce collagen.


Collagen and elastin are synthesized by fibroblasts. Pollution, age and UV rays damage the skin. The fibroblast shrink and lose their ability to produce collagen and elastin, which reduces the skin’s quality: the skin is finer, thinner and wrinkles and fine lines appear.



-32% in depth and volume of wrinkles
+33% skin tonicity


2.Light525® skin lightener:
The diodes continuously emit a precise frequency (525 nm) in a controlled manner so as to prevent and reduce brown spots and lighten the skin.


Melanocytes synthesise melanin pigments, which are responsible for skin colouring. When melanin is produced regularly and constantly, skin pigmentation is uniform.


With the combined effects of skin ageing and UV rays, melanin production can be affected. The skin loses its glow and, over time, brown spots appear up to 2cm in diameter. They are generally found on the face, hands and forearms.


Moreover, over the age of 50, the skin undergoes transformations that change the appearance of the pigment spots. The skin becomes thinner. The melanocytes, highly concentrated in dark pigments, get closer to the skin surface and are therefore more visible.



After 30 days: -30.3% pigmentation
After 60 days: -46% pigmentation

write-up on the Talika Duo Light


Hope you gals find this gadget interesting too!

Do i really think it work?  Frankly, i am not sure yet.  But there seem to be quite a bit of reviews on some beauty sites.  I have gotten this gadget for a few months now but have yet to use it on a consistently for 28 days, so i think its not fair to give my verdict.  With all the programme featuring this… i shall start tonight!  I will review it in 28 days.  Talika light duo is currently available in Sephora. Priced at $488.

    Hi Mikko,

    Have you been using Talika Light Duo? How is it? Does it really work? I’m very very much tempted to buy but haven’t seen anyone posted real result yet 🙂

      Dear Tanya,
      thanks for leaving a comment. I have only started to use the Talika light duo more frequently in the last few days. But a few friends of mine who bought the machines a few weeks back (and of course have been using it on a regular basis) told me that they see results!! Hope she is willing to share with her pictures soon (she took some before n after pics) as she feels that her spots n lines have improved significantly.

    Dear Mikko,

    That’s a good news. It costs almost SGD500 for the Light Duo – as much as 3-4 sessions of facials. It will be a good investment if it does really work 😉

    Please keep me posted on result of yourself or when you see your friend’s pictures (I don’t need to see the pix;))

    Have a good weekend!

    Hi Mikko,

      hi tanya,

      i wonder it is me or i think i am seeing results from the Talika Light Duo 🙂 my freckles seemed to have lighten.

    Hi Mikko, İ just read your conversation, İ wonder how is it going with Talika?

    1. mikko says: Reply

      hi shamu, the talika is working well for me and a few of my friends as well. Its great product but this is not a miracle. Still need a bit of consistency on your part to use it daily for a few weeks to see results. *** p.s. IPL treatments work well on my skin too. Guess i am one of those lucky ones whom respond well to light treatment.**

    Hi Mikko,

    How are you? It’s been awhile 😉 Do you or your friends also see any improvment in reduction of fine lines or wrinkles? Does it also help in lifting?

    I’m going to place order on SQ soon so just need final assurance 🙂

      hi tanya, go get it!! i met my girlfriend last tue and the dark spot that bothered her seem to have lightened quite a bit. She has been really pleased with the results. My freckles seems lighter too. We both think the Talika Light duo is a good small investment. LOL. For the initial period, do make it a point to use it 2x a day (if possible) for optimal results. Each session is really quick (45sec to 1 min). Looking forward to your updates after using too. happy using!

    Kind regards,

      hi chel,
      the treatment session as stated by talika light duo is to use the light therapy for 28 days to see the effect.

Am not too sure about the pricing in other countries but singapore airlines is offering The Talika Light Duo at a much cheaper price as compared to shops like Sephora in Singapore. I have not tried the CAL cream booster. will check it out. Have a safe trip home.

    hi Mikko~
    thank you for the info of the Light DUO. i can’t find it in Japan, and now i’m trying to buy one on the internet. is it really good? can i use it more than 28 days? how long is DUO’s life? sorry for such questions… thank you~


    1. mikko says: Reply

      Dear maymay, thank you for leaving me a note. Yes I believe that the talika light duo works for me personally and also another few of my frens. Have gotten the gadget for more quite a while already and i am still using it. The recommended is for a intensive treatment cycle of 28days. subsequently, its more for maintainence. My talika is still lasting well, it works on rechargeable battery so i guess i can continue to use until the battery wears out.

      Hope i have answer your questions. You can email me at mikko1413@gmail.com if you need more information.

    Hi Mikko,
    Actually i’m surveying about product to cure heavy pigmentation or uneven skin tone and hand up to your blog so i’m curious it’s product worth it and can cure my problem. As long as you are using it, did u have problem pigmentation and did it cure ? look forward for ur reply.
    have a nice day & Thanks,

    1. mikko says: Reply

      Hi Nekisa, Yes i have been using the Talika Light Duo for an intensive period and then had gone on a maintainence stage now. Am not sure if this can sure heavy pigmentation as personally my condition is not too severe, so I have seem improvements. I recommend you may want to consider IPL (impulse light therapy) done by asthetic doctors if your pigmentation problems are very serious. Cos IPL worked wonders for me and i swear by it. Just that the charges will be alot more than buying a home-used Talika light duo. Pls drop me an email at: mikko1413@gmail.com if you have more enquiries.
