Red light therapy is a must-have anti-aging treatment when it comes to skincare for its ability to stimulate collagen production and improve elasticity. Blue light therapy is the holy grail for diminishing breakouts, controlling oil production, and reducing hyperpigmentation.
Blue light therapy primarily targets the skin and is commonly used to treat acne and other dermatological conditions. Blue light is known for its antibacterial properties and its ability to destroy the bacteria that contribute to acne formation. When blue light is applied to the skin, it penetrates the sebaceous glands, where it can help kill the bacteria responsible for acne without damaging the surrounding tissue. Blue light therapy is often used in combination with red light therapy to address both the underlying causes of acne and the resulting inflammation. It is typically administered through specialized devices that emit specific wavelengths of blue light, and treatment sessions are relatively short and painless.
