Blue LED light therapy works by killing acne-causing bacteria at the source, deep beneath the skin’s surface. Blue LED light therapy emits specific, clinically-proven wavelengths of light to trigger a natural effect in human tissue, killing acne-causing bacteria, decreasing inflammation, and improving skin tone, texture, and clarity from the inside out. However, not all light therapy is created equal. Blue and red light light-therapy used together are a widely effective option for the treatment of inflammatory acne. One study concluded that blue light and red light act synergistically in improving acne by combining antibacterial and anti-inflammatory actions, rendering phototherapy with blue and red light an effective and safe treatment for acne vulgaris. Blue light therapy is less effective for non-inflammatory acne. That means if you have blackheads, milia or clogged pores a series of peels and extractions may be a better choice. If you have inflamed acne a series of 12 blue light treatments, done 2-3 x's a week are recommended. You may want to alternate LED Blue Light Therapy with Clear Skin Express Facials to handle a combination of pore clearing issues.
