Light Therapy for Acne
Treating acne can be done in different ways such as:
- Home remedies
- LED light therapy
Light therapy is clinically proven to effectively treat acne and in particular blue light. Blue light is emitted at 415nm and is known to kill the bacteria that causes acne. By killing the bacteria, the appearance of acne is reduced.
Blue Light Therapy for Acne
Blue light therapy is the main light colour that is used for the treatment of acne. This can be delivered by a blue light mask or a standalone light emitting device. The advantage of the Acne light masks is it is close the skin and offers many other benefits along with the successful treatment of acne.
The OPERA LED mask can be used as an acne light mask and emits both blue light at 415nm (known to kill bacteria) and infrared light at 830nm. It is this infrared light that causes a reduction in the size of oil-secreting glands that contain the bacteria. The infra-red light also increases blood circulation to the area to help the body’s own defence and immune system.
The OPERA LED acne light mask can also be set to do a combination treatment with red light, so you get the benefits of the blue light and infra-red as well as skin rejuvenation properties of red light.
The skin rejuvenation properties of the red light can help assist with acne scarring as it stimulates the production of new collagen.
Anti-Acne Light Therapy Mask
LED light therapy for the treatment of acne works for mild, moderate and severe cases of acne. The more severe acne generally responds better to combination treatments and advanced acne protocols that come in the application guide of the OPERA led acne face mask.
What is a Blue Light Mask?
A Blue light mask is a light mask designed specifically for the treatment of acne and should produce a light in the region of 415nm to kill the active bacteria. As we have discussed and looked at within these information pages a blue light masks alone can come up short in the treatment of all cases in acne. The combination treatments as available through OPERA LED mask is what leads to the very best results.
Face Mask for Acne Prone Skin
