What if you could clear up your acne without special cleansers or medication, and without regular visits to the dermatologist? There would be no pain, either. You would begin to see results as soon as a few days after you start treatment.

This revolutionary way of curing acne harnesses the power of blue light to kill the bacteria that causes pimples. This bacteria, propionibacterium acnes, clogs your pores and causes inflammation. But blue LED light causes the acnes to self-destruct. It may take a few sessions to get all the bacteria, but your pores will return to normal and your skin will produce less oil.

You can visit a dermatologist for intensive sessions that could work a little faster, or you can do treatments at home with an approved device. Either way is effective because blue light therapy for acne doesn't hurt and it really works.

Who can benefit from blue light therapy?

If you have red pimples from inflammatory acne, blue light therapy is ideal for you. If you have cystic acne, it won't work. If you aren't sure which kind you have, consult with your doctor before beginning treatment.

Who should avoid blue light therapy?

We're glad you asked because this is important. Some people should not do blue light therapy. For example, if you already take accutane, please talk to your doctor first. Also, if you have lupus, epilepsy, albinism, or you're pregnant, don't try this treatment for your pimples.

If you're taking retinol, St John's Wort, antibiotics, or anything else that makes your skin sensitive to light, talk to your doctor. You may need to stop taking those at least a week before you begin light therapy.

Does blue light therapy work for everyone no matter their skin color?

Happily, yes, blue light therapy works for everyone. It doesn't matter what your skin color is. In fact, light therapy is a blessing for people with darker skin who end up with very dark spots after a breakout.

What's the difference between blue light therapy at the dermatologist's office and at home?

Dermatologists have more powerful LED lights they use in their offices. The lights are larger so they cover more skin at once. If you have severe acne, consider visiting a dermatologist first. They can give your treatment a jump start. Then you can to finish and maintain your skin at home with your own device.

Is blue light therapy safe?

Yes, blue light therapy is very safe, even if you do treatments at home. The lights don't get hot so you won't burn yourself. 

Is blue light therapy expensive?

If you visit a dermatologist for LED light therapy, plan on paying anywhere from $150 to $300 a session. Now compare that to the average cost of a home use device. One device costs as much as one visit. It's definitely more economical to buy your own skin rejuvenation device. You just have to commit to doing your own treatments at home.

A little history of blue light therapy

NASA discovered that different colored lights could do everything from help astronauts grow plants to heal wounds quicker in space. You've probably heard that there are lights that treat people suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder. In 2002, the FDA started clearing blue LED devices for medical uses.

Why choose LEDs instead of regular blue light bulbs? LEDs last a lot longer than regular lights, up to years of constant use without failing. They are very powerful for their tiny size. Therefore, astronauts got to experiment with LEDs.

You may have also heard that the blue light emitted by your smartphone and tablet can keep you awake at night. This is true. If you are especially sensitive to this, consider doing your blue light skin care therapy treatments in the morning instead of at night.


We hope you found the best blue light therapy device for you to get rid of acne.
