Skin Therapy

What Is Blue & Red Light Skin Therapy?

Blue Light Skin Therapy is an oxygenating treatment that kills P. Acne bacteria. The process is a non-invasive method of treating problem skin.

A blue light treatment uses natural blue lights which can penetrate under the surface of the skin. To obtain optimal results regular treatments are recommended.

For acne, 4-6 treatments are recommended in combination with other therapies based on your individual skin consultation. Maintenance appointments are recommended every 6 months.

Different wavelengths of the visible light spectrum correspond to different colours of LED light and penetrate the skin to different depths.

Red and blue lights are typically used in LED skin treatments. Red LED light acts on cells in the skin known as fibroblasts, which play a role in the production of collagen (a protein that makes up a large part of connective tissue, helping the skin to recover when it’s harmed).

Red light can help to reverse some of the signs related to photoaging in the skin.

What to Expect
At Your Appointment

Your blue or red light therapy appointment will be done in a dark room, away from bright lights or sunlight. You will be given goggles to protect your eyes. Then, your treatment will start with a series of blue or red lights being applied in varying intensities to the treatment area.

The duration of blue or red light treatments is dependent on your skin’s needs and the area of treatment. If you have few issues with only one small area being targeted, treatment can be as short as 15 minutes. If you have severe skin issues, the treatments can last up to 30 minutes.

What to Expect
After Your Appointment

Any issues after the treatment are typically very minor. You may experience some slight redness of the skin. With such minor issues, this treatment option has no downtime. You can immediately resume your daily activities after the blue or red light treatment is over.
