The Omnilux LED New-U hand-held is the only FDA-cleared at-home device for the effective treatment of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes---commonly known as crow's feet. I've been asked to help launch the Omnilux LED New-U device this weekend on HSN (Home Shopping Network) as a medical guest who is well-versed in the mechanisms of phototherapy and as a physician who has experience with the device. We've been using the in-office Omnilux device for over a year at Bauman Medical Group with great satisfaction from our patients.
The use of red and infrared light applied to the skin reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and the Omnilux New-U has the same LED technology as the larger, in-office device.
If you are interested, catch me 'live' on HSN during the following times:

A Study to determine the efficacy of a novel handheld LED device in the treatment of photo-aged skin

Abstract The use of visible or near infrared spectral light alone for the purpose of skin rejuvenation has been previously reported in the literature. These devices use large arrays of diodes to deliver light to the skin. In this study, a novel method of light emitting diode (LED) photo rejuvenation incorporating a combination of these wavelengths delivered from a small hand-held unit is proposed. 22 subjects with facial rhytids received 8 light therapy treatments over a course of 4 weeks, using the Omnilux handheld LED system. Assessment of global skin grading was evaluated at weeks 6, 9 and 12 by a dermatologist. Additional outcome measures included assessments of clinical photography and patient satisfaction scores. 74% of subjects reported a visible improvement in fine lines and wrinkles at 8 weeks post treatment. Combination red and near infrared LED therapy delivered from a small portable handheld unit, represents an effective and acceptable method of photo rejuvenation. Further studies to optimize the parameters of treatment are required.
