Blue Light Acne Therapy

Blue light is a pain-free, non-invasive treatment for moderate inflammatory acne. The blue light causes a chemical reaction in the bacterium responsible for acne that ultimately causes the bacterium to die. We also supply red lamps that can aid in reducing inflammation and help with healing 

See the British Journal of
Dermatology paper below. 

"... Acne vulgaris is one of the commonest skin conditions, to affect humans, with 70% of all adolescents developing acne. The mainstay of treatment of acne is the use of topical or systemic antibiotics. The rapid increase in the incidence of antibiotic resistance in the causative bacterium, Propionibacterium acnes, is causing great concern and there is a pressing need for effective, non-antibiotic treatments. 

... We have found that phototherapy with mixed blue-red light, probably by combining antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action, is an effective means of treating acne vulgaris of mild to moderate severity, with no significant short-term adverse effects.

... irradiation of P. acnes with light in the blue region (415 nm) could result in photodynamic stimulation of porphyrins stored in the bacteria, singlet oxygen production and bacterial killing.

... We found a final mean improvement of 76% (95% confidence interval 66±87) in inflammatory lesions using a combined blue±red light radiation which was significantly superior to those achieved by blue light or benzoyl peroxide.

... We propose that blue light and red light may act synergistically in improving acne by combining antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action, rendering phototherapy with blue-red light an effective and safe treatment for acne vulgaris."
