Blue Light for Acne Therapy
A blemish-free, smooth complexion is something that everyone desires. The inevitable truth is that several factors always make acne appear on the skin. However, there are some tried and tested cosmetology methods to eliminate acne and give you the spotless face you love. Blue light therapy is a non-surgical cosmetology therapy that can quickly eradicate acne.
What Is Blue Light Therapy?
Blue light therapy, or photodynamic therapy, combats skin issues beneath the skin’s surface. It involves destroying abnormal skin cells using photosensitizing agents with specific blue light wavelengths. During a blue light treatment, the surrounding skin cells are totally unharmed.
How Does It Work?
Blue light therapy is a process that uses blue light wavelengths between 405 nm and 420 nm to destroy bacteria. The photodynamic treatment typically kills the P. acnes (Propionibacterium acnes) bacteria in the skin.
Blue Light for Treating Acne- Does It Work?
There are several blue light therapy wands and other devices all over the internet, which may make you wonder if the therapy works as stated. Well, the answer to that question is a resounding “Yes.”
Here’s how: Blue light acne therapy uses a high-intensity, narrow-band blue light that porphyrins soak up. These porphyrins are bacteria produced by acne; when exposed to wavelengths of blue light, the production of free radical’s destroys them.
A Japanese study by Reiko Noborio et al., of ten people with acne on their face and back, reported that blue light therapy once or twice a week significantly reduced acne severity in eight participants. Furthermore, none of the participants had any negative effects after the therapy.
Experts recommend the use of a blue light device, like the BLOOM photon skin therapy beauty device, combining blue and red light or near-infrared therapy. This combination goes deeper into the skin’s underlying tissues, significantly minimizing the incidence of future acne breakouts.
Is Blue Light Safe?
You may have heard that the blue light released from your computer and phone screens can negatively affect your eyes and sleep patterns. This fact makes people think that blue light therapy devices harm the skin. Well, that is far from the truth!
The harmful effects of blue light come from staring at the light for several hours. In the case of blue light therapy, you are not staring at the light for hours. In fact, practitioners use safety goggles to protect your eyes during the treatment. Your skin experiences only short periods of blue light exposure. So, the difference in the application method explains why blue light harms your eyes from your phone, while it enhances your skin during therapy.
Blue light therapy devices offer a treatment method that is far safer than UV light therapy. However, we recommend that you consult with your doctor prior to using any device. Within a few weeks, you can see the results. Don’t wait any longer; contact PRAIMY now to enjoy their price discounts!
