Improvement after LED⠀

Our office uses two wavelengths when treating acne. We use the red LED and the blue LED. The blue LED Light treatment is designed to impact the growth of the bacteria associated with acne; the red LED treatment is designed to minimize inflammation and irritation of the affected area.

When having the red and blue LED treatment in combination, the treatment takes approximately 30 minutes. There is no down time to this treatment and it may be repeated multiple times in a week or as many as your condition may require. LED may be combined with microdermabrasion and/or other treatments to help improve acne. 

Finally, red LED light may be used after certain procedures to decrease inflammation and redness.

Is there any pain with LED Therapy?

Compared with other procedures for skin rejuvenation and acne, LED light therapy can be an attractive skin care alternative. Red and Blue light therapy are NOT painful.

Is there any down time with LED Therapy?

There is NO down time with LED Therapy. LED Therapy does not involve surgery or cutting.

How does RED LED Therapy work?

Red light therapy can increase blood circulation, reducing skin inflammation and nourishing damaged tissues.

How does BLUE LED Therapy work for acne?

Blue light appears to come by its action on Propionibacterium acnes (the bacteria in acne) and its anti-inflammatory properties. P. acnes contains molecules called coproporphyrin and protoporphyrin IX. Absorption of blue light by these molecules is believed to induce a reaction with destruction of the bacteria by the formation of oxygen free radicals. Blue light’s anti-inflammatory effect appears to be the result of a shift in cytokine production.
