What is Light Therapy?
Light Therapy uses specialized LED (Light-emitting diode) lights to treat acne and wrinkles. Different color lights are used for treating different conditions.
Here is how it works. Light colors emit different wavelengths that are capable of targeting various conditions. For instance, blue light targets the strain of bacteria that instrumental in causing acne. The blue light develops oxygen radicals that essentially kill the acne bacteria without damaging the healthy skin around it. It’s effective for mild to moderate inflammatory acne. The potential side effects include dryness or peeling.
The red light therapy is good for someone with wrinkles as the wavelengths of the red light may improve the skin’s barrier function signaling for new collagen production. The red light is also believed to target the skin’s oil glands to reduce cytokines.
