The machines used for LED light therapy have particular wavelengths of lights proven to have beneficial bio-stimulation effects on the skin.
The two main colour LED lights used are used red and blue. These lights interact with skin cells and cause a photo-biochemical reaction.

This stimulates cellular renewal from deep within the tissue and has an anti-bacterial affect. This helps to rejuvenate ageing skin by initiating new collagen production and repairing damaged cells.
NASA has even proven that light therapy heals wounds faster! Benefits.
In addition to skin problems, light therapy can also relieve sore muscles, rashes from ingrown hairs, stiffness, chronic pain and minimise bruising or swelling from Botox injections.

When you arrive at the clinic to have the blue light acne treatment the therapist will check the type of spots you have because not everyone can benefit from light therapy. The following pictures show the types of spots that can be treated with blue light therapy.
That picture showed the appearance of papules or pustules, two types of inflammatory spots common in acne sufferers.
If you have non-inflamed blackheads and whiteheads then unfortunately light therapy doesn't respond as well.
The picture below shows what non-inflammatory spots looks like.
How Long Does It Take To Reduce Acne And How Much Does It Cost?
For optimal results, it's best to book a course of 12 sessions over a 2 month period. The first month you come in twice a week thereafter its once a week. After that I recommend you book a maintenance treatment once every six months to prevent further outbreaks and keep your skin rejuvenated.
I also recommend having a course of microdermabrasion in combination with acne light therapy. This will help remove the dead skin so the bright light can penetrate your skin even deeper.
