LED (light-emitting diode) therapy uses wavelengths of visible light to rejuvenate the skin. The light penetrates deep within the skin to boost radiance and treat a variety of issues, such as sun damage, acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis.
The most common colors of light are red, blue, and near infrared, although yellow and green are occasionally used as well. More than one light color can be used per treatment, and each hue of light benefits the skin in its own unique way:
Red light has anti-inflammatory properties, soothes irritation and rosacea, and is believed to stimulate collagen production.
Blue light kills bacteria and is used to treat acne.
Near infrared light smooths fine lines and wrinkles, reduces inflammation, and helps heal acne and wounds.
Benefits of light therapy
There are two main kinds of visible light therapy used in clinical settings: blue light and red light. Each has a specific use, and, while they both help acne, each has different benefits.
Blue light therapy
Blue light therapy is the type of light therapy most commonly used to address acne breakouts.
The wavelength of blue light has an antimicrobial effect, making it effective at killing several types of bacteria that can collect in your pores and oil glands and cause breakouts.
In one study, people with acne who were treated for five weeks with blue light therapy saw improvement more than 77%.
Blue light therapy also helps condition your skin, getting rid of free radicals that oxidize and age your face. The treatment also has anti-inflammatory benefits, which decreases other symptoms of acne, such as redness.
Red light therapy
Red light therapy doesn’t have the same antibacterial effects of blue light therapy, but it can still be effective.
Red light therapy helps promote healing and may work to decrease the visibility of acne scarring. It also has anti-inflammatory capabilities.
Red light therapy works deep below the surface of your skin to help soothe and repair tissue.
If your acne is caused by a chronic skin condition, red light therapy might be the choice for you.
