At Home Blue light therapy – a noninvasive Acne treatment

Blue light is used  to kill certain bacteria on the skin.

Q: How does blue light technology work?
A: Blue light kills the acne-causing bacteria known as Propionibacterium acnes, or P acnes, which can cause inflammation. P acnes is sensitive to blue light. Using the blue light, eliminates the bacteria found in the oil glands in the skin. The added presence of infrared light (heat) in the home device causes the oil glands to shrink in size. The result is less oil in the skin and less bacteria, leading to the resolution of acne in the treated areas.

Q: Why is it effective?
A: Eliminating the bacteria from the skin with help from blue light decreases the inflammation associated with red pimples (papules) seen in acne. After a number of treatments, the blemishes disappear and skin regains its normal appearance.

Q: What are the benefits of at-home blue light treatments?
A: Home devices can be used at the convenience of the user, any time of the day or night and lead to significant skin improvements. The incredible advancements in at-home tools (LED Light Therapy Devices) allows for consumers to achieve efficacy on their own schedule.

Q: What results can be expected using blue light therapy?
A: Users of LED Blue Light Therapy have experienced a significant decrease in the number of acne lesions, both pimples and cysts, with a home device. Not only have they achieved better skin, there also has been a significant improvement in their self-confidence. Because most sufferers are young, the success of the treatment and reduction of their acne also helped their social life and interactions with others, both in a personal and a professional setting.

What are the advantages of blue light therapy for acne ?

A: Blue light therapy offers benefits over alternative acne treatments, as it is considered:

  • safe and gentle
  • painless
  • drug-free
  • appropriate for all areas of the body
  • suitable for use with most other acne therapies

Unlike photodynamic therapy, there is no requirement to avoid the sun following treatment. Blue light therapy does not cause any scarring.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology light therapies “show great promise in treating acne,” with many people experiencing a significant improvement in their skin health after a number of sessions.

Blue light therapy can be used to treat acne that is already present on the skin or to control the condition before an outbreak occurs.

Why are “At Home” LED Light Therapy devices creating so much interest from consumers ?

A: Until quite recently, LED therapy was something that you could only really get at a dermatologist’s or esthetician’s clinic, but as LEDs have become easier to produce this has allowed the development of reasonably priced units for home use

Phototherapy or  light therapy, is used in different ways throughout skin care. Red LED frequency has been shown to stimulate collagen, while blue has been shown to kill acne-causing bacteria

More and more people are looking for natural treatments for acne and light therapy devices are a great addition .

In recent years, a growing number of blue light products have become available to treat acne at home.

Self-applied blue light treatment has been reported to be easy and safe to use.


LED Light Therapy is the only aesthetic device that has no known contra-indications of any kind. It is good for all skin types, colours and conditions.

It is safe, painless, relaxing and non invasive.

Largely ignored by drug companies, up to this point, is that cells have an immense capability to heal themselves. With LED Light Therapy devices, you can kick start the body to regenerate and revitalize its cells which then allows them to renew themselves.

This is energy based medicine versus pharmaceutical-based medicine with it many issues of toxicity and cost.
