BLUE LIGHT THERAPY TREATMENT AT A GLANCE

WHAT IT DOES: Blue light therapy involves the use of light emitting diodes (LED) in the visible blue light spectrum (400nm-450nm) to non-invasively influence certain behaviors in the skin, as well as aid in the destruction of problematic overgrowth of P. acnes bacteria. P. acnes bacteria is a key player in many acneic conditions. Combining blue light therapy with red LED light is a popular light therapy for acne, and studies suggest this light therapy for acne combo may help regulate sebum production.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: Blue light therapy is available as a professional treatment or as an at-home therapy, with many different handheld or facemask models available on the market. If considering an at-home device, patients should look for LED devices that emit blue light therapy in a range of 405nm-420nm to optimize the bactericidal effect of blue light therapy for acne. Patients should be aware that professional blue light therapy is more powerful and effective than the options available for the consumer market, but with consistent and frequent use, at-home blue light therapy can be an effective tool for acne management.
