Blue Light (415 NM)
Research shows that blue LED light therapy reduces activity in glands under the surface of the skin which produce oil. Excessive oil on the skin can lead to acne, blackheads and other skin blemishes, so reducing activity in these glands can lead to clearer and smoother skin.
The blue light also targets acne bacteria that cause acne lesions. It targets a compound called porphyrins, a photosensitizer which is found endogenously in active Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), the causative bacterium of inflammatory acne, The more severe the acne, the more porphyrins are found in P. acnes. When activated, porphyrins induce singlet oxygen production within the P. acnes, a powerful free radical, which sends the affected P. acnes into programmed cell death, or apoptosis. By removing the bacteria, this treatment reduces spots and blemishes. The natural healing process is enhanced and the appearance of the skin is improved.
Red Light (663 NM)
Red light stimulates certain types of skin cells called fibroblasts. These help make collagen, which are important for skin elasticity and wound recovery. Some studies have found that red LED light therapy tightens skin, reduces wrinkles and fine lines, and makes skin smoother and softer.
Red light also reduces skin inflammation, and is usually used in conjunction with blue light therapy, which can cause very subtle inflammation.
Near Infra-Red Light (830 NM With 590 NM Photosequencing)
