Red and Blue Light Therapy

Acne, eczema, and hyperpigmentation are frustrating yet common skin conditions that aren’t always easy to resolve. This is why Bella MedSpa in Wesley Chapel, Florida offers red and blue light therapy treatments for patients who want to naturally and effectively rejuvenate and heal their skin from these bothersome conditions.

What Is Red and Blue Light Therapy?

Light therapy uses non-laser sources of light to alleviate specific skin problems. Different colors of visible light correspond to different wavelengths, and each wavelength range penetrates the skin in a unique way. Blue light, for example, is a lower wavelength that only penetrates the shallow layers of the skin. Red light, on the other hand, is a higher wavelength capable of penetrating down to the deepest layers of the skin. Based on these behaviors, red and blue light both have valuable skin care applications.

Which Color Is Right For You?

Blue light therapy is known as an effective acne treatment. When blue light shines onto the skin, it reaches the oil glands and effectively kills the bacteria that causes acne to form. Once this bacteria is cleared away, the skin has the opportunity to heal and rejuvenate.

Red light, meanwhile, is able to actually shrink the skin’s oil glands and reduce the amount of oil produced, which in turn minimizes the amount of acne that forms on the skin. Red light is also valuable to help accelerate wound healing, stimulate collagen production, and aid in fading sunspots and hyperpigmentation since it can penetrate so deeply into the skin.

Red and blue light can also be combined to maximize the benefits of each individual therapy and rejuvenate the skin.
