LED Light Therapy
Blue and Red Light Therapy
Using our specific light treatment, the area of affected skin is exposed to Blue light (417nm), which is quickly absorbed by acne-causing bacteria. It is now the most popular acne treatment in the United States as people look for safe and effective treatments with no downtime for treating mild to moderate acne.
Molecules within the bacteria then react by producing singlet oxygen and free radicals that in turn destroy the P. Acnes bacteria, decreases inflammation and encouraging wound healing. Once the body has been exposed to Blue light, the use of Red light therapy helps to restore normal cellular function and promotes healthy skin rejuvenation.
Red light therapy stimulates the skin and promotes the production of the energy source for cells known as adenosine triphosphate (ATP). By increasing ATP, the production of elastin and collagen also increases and normal cellular function can be restored. There is an increase in circulation and reduction of inflammation within the skin. When Blue light therapy and Red light therapy are used in conjunction with each other they are much more effective at targeting inflammatory acne.
