Acne and Wrinkle Reduction

Harvard Healthcare says on its website, "Red and blue lights are typically promoted in LED skin treatments. Experts believe that red LED light acts on cells in the skin known as fibroblasts, which play a role in production of collagen, a protein that makes up a large part of connective tissue and helps the skin to recover when it's harmed."

Key Benefits According to The Cleveland Clinic

Cleveland Clinic’s website notes, “Blue light can also spell lights out for some types of acne. Many cases of common acne are caused by a bacterium called Propionibacterium acnes, or P. acnes, which lives on your skin. And P. acnes just so happens to emit its own photosensitizer, which makes it sensitive to blue wavelengths of light. Shining blue light onto acne-prone skin can kill the bacteria and clear up blemishes.”
