Acne is a very frustrating condition that can be extremely difficult to get rid of. Whether you get the occasional blemish or you are fighting a face covered with acne, it makes you feel insecure and uneasy. There is a treatment you can do in your own home that will help you get your acne under control without drugs or invasive measures. The most convenient and best product for acne is blue LED light therapy which can be done in a dermatologist’s office or in your own home.

This effective therapy uses blue LEDs (light emitting diodes ranging from 415 to 445 nanometers) to penetrate into your skin where the wavelengths kill bacteria that cause acne, P. acnes. They also soothe, stabilize sebaceous glands, regulate oil production, and reduce inflammation.

By taking destructive bacteria out of the picture, blue light therapy clears the skin of inflammation and infection promoting organisms. It’s a powerful yet gentle option for handling a very frustrating condition that if left untreated can result in scarring. It offers an alternative to harmful drugs and painful procedures offering a safe option for treating your acne.

There are blue light therapy systems created for home use that make this therapy convenient and affordable. The dpl Nuve Blue is an FDA cleared handheld unit that uses strictly blue LEDs to fight and prevent acne. The Caribbean Sun Red/Blue Pro is a hands-free system that combines red and blue LEDs into one unit for treating and preventing acne.

The red LEDs accelerate healing, reduce inflammation, and diminish scarring. The combination of these two powerful LEDs gives your skin a double treat by increasing the positive responses promoting a clearer and more even complexion.

Both of these at home systems effectively treat and prevent acne. It’s really a matter of preference whether you prefer to hold a handheld system such as the dpl Nuve Blue onto each area for 3 minutes or you prefer to sit in front of the Caribbean Sun Red/Blue Pro for approximately 10-15 minutes for the entire face.

When it comes to fighting acne, there are many options out there that can cause harm to your skin or health when used for a long period of time. Blue light therapy is safe and effective, but you need to wear protective goggles with this therapy as blue LEDs have been show to potentially damage the retina. When looking for a treatment for your own skin or for someone you love, blue light therapy is a viable alternative with immense benefits.
