Blue L.E.D. Light Therapy
Rihanna uses blue light therapy to keep her skin acne free.
Blue light therapy uses non-UV light to eliminate acne-causing bacteria deep within the skin. The result: clear, smooth skin with fewer blemishes, clogged pores, pimples and acne breakouts. But unlike more common incandescent light-bulbs, they don’t have a filament that burns or gets hot. Today LED lights are used to trigger organic, intracellular photo-chemical processes that gives your body’s own production of collagen a natural boost. They are commonly used for treating acne, skin rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction.
L.E.D. treatments have been popularized in the aesthetics and beauty Industries as the leading all-natural solution for acne. Both anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial, Blue L.E.D. treatments are demonstrating all natural rejuvenation of the skin, and have been clinically proven to be extremely successful in treating mild to moderate inflammatory acne.
The technique is simply based on the blue light interacting with the skin. The contact generates singlet oxygen, which in turn attacks and kills the bacterial cells, and also levels the pH of the skin which can be a cause for. Thus, it is extremely effective in treating acne vulgaris, with tests showing reductions in both comedones and inflammatory acne lesions. This is a breakthrough in terms of making cost-effective LED treatment available to people as an alternative treatment for acne with no serious negative side effects. The results of blue L.E.D treatment can vary by individual and skin type, are gradual, and will not occur over night. Continued daily application, will provide more cumulative long-term, lasting results.
According to a report presented to the American Academy of Dermatology, simply two 15-minute exposure sessions per week for a period of four weeks using a low intensity blue light source with an output of between 405-420 nm (nanometers) "produced a 60 percent reduction in acne in 80 percent of patients. Reported remissions from acne lasted as long as three to eight months".
As published in the British Journal of Dermatology, Blue Light Therapy was studied in the treatment of mild-to-moderate acne. After 12 weeks of 15-minute daily active treatments with a portable blue LED light source, subjects showed a 76% mean improvement in inflammatory acne lesions. Both researchers and patients favored Blue Light Therapy, with more patients achieving improvement in acne over other types of treatment groups. The research concluded that blue light "acts synergistically in improving acne by combining anti-inflammatory actions, rendering phototherapy with blue light an effective and safe treatment for acne."
