Frequently Asked Questions

All of the questions you need to ask about LED Blue Light Therapy

How LED Blue Light Therapy Works?

LED blue light therapy targets and denatures P. acnes, the bacteria responsible for acne. While it won’t prevent spots from forming deep within the skin, it effectively reduces redness and inflammation by eliminating surface bacteria.

Treatment Areas using LED Blue Light Therapy?

This therapy can be used on the face and body, making it suitable for treating blemishes and body breakouts such as ‘bacne’ on the back and shoulders. Treatment can be administered in a clinic or with a home-use device, although home devices are less powerful and require more frequent use.

What is the effectiveness of the LED Blue Light Therapy?

LED blue light therapy is effective at reducing acne bacteria and improving skin condition. Home-use devices can still be beneficial when used consistently, though they are less powerful than clinical equipment.

What are some complementary therapies to LED Blue Light Therapy?

Other LED light therapies include red light for inflammation and collagen production, yellow light for cellular communication, and near-infrared light for additional collagen boosting. 

LED blue light therapy offers a non-invasive, convenient solution to reduce acne and improve skin health.

What is the duration and longevity of the LED Blue Light Therapy?

A LED blue light therapy session takes around 20 minutes, with a typical regime of two sessions per week. The effects usually last for several months, providing long-term relief from acne and skin blemishes.

Are There Any Side Effects to LED Blue Light Therapy?

LED blue light therapy is generally safe, but some individuals may experience mild side effects, including:

  • Redness: The treated area may appear red for several hours post-treatment.
  • Swelling: There may be temporary swelling in the treated area.
  • Tenderness: The area might feel tender, particularly if it swells.
  • Crusting or Peeling: The skin may crust over and peel off within a few days.

These side effects are typically short-lived and subside on their own. Always consult with a qualified practitioner to ensure the best care and results.

LED Red Light Treatments

LED red light therapy is a treatment designed to improve skin texture and reduce lines and wrinkles by using red light emitted from LED bulbs. The therapy involves relaxing under a large canopy of LED bulbs or wearing a mask equipped with LEDs for around 20 minutes.

Red light therapy is part of a broader spectrum of LED treatments, which also includes blue light for bacterial reduction, yellow light for cell communication enhancement, and near-infrared light for collagen production.

Frequently Asked Questions

All of the questions you need to ask about LED Red Light Therapy

How LED Red Light Therapy Works?

The red light penetrates the skin to stimulate cellular repair and increase circulation, promoting healthier and younger-looking skin. This non-invasive treatment has no downtime, making it convenient for regular use.

Treatment Areas using LED Blue Light Therapy?

This therapy can be used on the face and body, making it suitable for treating blemishes and body breakouts such as ‘bacne’ on the back and shoulders. Treatment can be administered in a clinic or with a home-use device, although home devices are less powerful and require more frequent use.

What are the benefits and usage of the LED Blue Light Therapy?

LED red light therapy can be used as a standalone treatment or in combination with other skin treatments. It’s particularly effective for skin rejuvenation and is suitable for all skin types.

What are some Related Treatments to LED Red Light Therapy?

For information on related treatments, such as LED blue light therapy for acne, refer to specific resources or consult your practitioner.

What is the duration and longevity of the LED Blue Light Therapy?

A LED blue light therapy session takes around 20 minutes, with a typical regime of two sessions per week. The effects usually last for several months, providing long-term relief from acne and skin blemishes.

Are there any side effects to LED red light therapy?

LED red light therapy is generally safe and painless. However, it’s crucial to protect your eyes during treatment to prevent potential damage. Some people might experience headaches or irritability. There’s a very remote chance of burns, typically if a home-use session continues for too long due to falling asleep. Most devices have automatic shut-off features to mitigate this risk. Always follow safety guidelines and device instructions to ensure a safe and effective treatment.

Menopause can cause the skin to become drier, thinner, and more sensitive. The skins cell turnover slows down, this is due to the body producing less estrogen. The production of fibroblasts also slow down. Fibroblasts produce collagen and elastin, you may notice you skin loses its plumpness and firmness.
