How does Blue Light therapy work?
Experts believe the Blue LED light therapy decreases the activity in the sebaceous glands, which are small oil producing glands in the skin. This reduction in activity causes the glands to produce less oil, therefore improving acne symptoms.
“[Blue] Light gets at the core of what causes acne eruptions: P. acnes, the bacterial responsible for causing acne inflammation, pumps out tiny molecules called porphyrins. When those porphyrin are exposed to certain wavelengths of light, they produce free radicals that kill the bacteria. Without P. acnes around to cause inflammation, acne clears up.” American Academy of Dermatology 2002
