How Does Blue Light Therapy Help with Acne and Scarring?
Our blue LED light therapy products alleviate acne and minimize associated scarring by clearing bacteria from your pores and preventing it from coming back. These devices feature LEDs (light-emitting diodes) that produce non-UV blue wavelengths.
Blue light is a short wave that can penetrate the user’s pores where acne-causing bacteria live. Blue light also stabilizes the sebaceous glands’ oil production so the pores remain clear and new acne can’t form.
While blue light takes the lead role in acne treatment, our acne devices use multi-spectrum lights for additional effects. These devices also emit red light, which draws blood carrying oxygen and vital nutrients to the treatment area. The blood flow helps skin cells heal faster while soothing inflammation.
Does Light Therapy for Acne Actually Work?
Yes, light therapy is an acne remedy that works! Dermatologists have used blue light therapy as an acne solution for years, and our products make it possible to access FDA-cleared therapies from home. The results speak for themselves. Research shows that blue light is an effective treatment for both men and women with various types of acne.
Our in-house consumer blue light study shows the science in action. Self-evaluations from men and women ages 18 to 28 show that 100% of subjects with existing acne saw Good, Above Average, or Significant improvements during the two-week testing period with reVive Light Therapy® Acne Treatment. Our blue light therapy devices prove their ability to:
- Treat existing acne
- Prevent future flare-ups
- Stabilize natural oil production
Is Blue Light Therapy Safe?
Blue light therapy is 100% safe when following all treatment guidelines. Our acne treatment products use skin-safe wavelengths that affect bacteria alone. We supply protective goggles with any device that would shine light into the eyes during treatment. Some devices are designed to prevent light from shining into your eyes during use and therefore do not require goggles.
