This is the perfect treatment option for acne is that it is not only safe and side-effect free, but unlike other treatments, it directly attacks and kills the P. acnes bacteria responsible for the appearance of blemishes and scars.
Treating acne using light therapy can be done either through the use of blue light or a combination of red and blue light. Blue light targets the first layer of the skin cell to eliminate the P. acnes bacteria while the red light aids in reducing inflammation as a follow up measure.
What makes blue light therapy a clear choice for acne treatments is that it is a pain-free and drug-free procedure that can, in most cases, be used in conjunction with other modalities such as topicals. Treatment times are short and results are usually seen within a few short weeks.

Red LED light therapy (RLT) is a controversial therapeutic technique that uses red low-level wavelengths of light to treat skin issues, such as wrinkles, scars, and persistent wounds, among other conditions.
Red light is thought to work by producing a biochemical effect in cells that strengthens the mitochondria. The mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell — it’s where the cell’s energy is created. The energy-carrying molecule found in the cells of all living things is called ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
By increasing the function of the mitochondria using RLT, a cell can make more ATP. With more energy, cells can function more efficiently, rejuvenate themselves, and repair damage.
