What is the advantage of red and blue light therapy? I was thinking of getting phototherapy for my acne, which of the therapies would work best?
Thanks in advance!October 24, 2019 at 6:46 pm #417grace peachParticipant
I haven’t used blue light therapy, but I have first hand experience with red and near infrared light therapies. I do have friends who had used it before though.
Could you state what result you intend on achieving? what are you hoping to treat with light therapy?

You may have skipped the part where I said ” I was thinking of getting photo-therapy for my acne”. lol.
I appreciate your help and I hope to hear from you. Thanks!October 26, 2019 at 11:08 am #424grace peachParticipant
I am really sorry about that!. Must have skipped that line.
Personally, and factually, you will get the best benefits using both therapies. Blue light is known for killing acne-causing bacteria by creating oxygen molecules.
However, where red light comes to play is for its healing and anti-inflammation property. Red light heals up acne faster and helps you in a multi-purpose way.
So, I say, get both!. Don’t miss out on the red!.

Lol, thought as much, you must have skipped that part.
I replied to your previous comment and I see the advantages when using the two light therapy types.
Grace, you are amazing!October 30, 2019 at 1:46 pm #442tammyParticipant
You would benefit from combination red and blue light therapy.September 22, 2020 at 5:38 pm #617
Will there be any side effect if I use both lights to treat some acne marks too?September 22, 2020 at 7:04 pm #623marjorie1969Participant
Nikki. As far as I know both therapy does not have any bad side effects when it comes to healing your acne marks. Both blue and red light are beneficial. They just have a different effect to how you will use it. Red light has a slightly longer wavelength than blue light.October 7, 2020 at 6:49 pm #947Kathleenleen001Participant
Yes, actually it depends on you on what works for you the best.October 7, 2020 at 7:14 pm #951
I am sorry I am kind of lost. Are we talking about an LED red/blue bulb light or the face mask that is intended for the face?October 8, 2020 at 2:20 pm #969rafrafrafraf001Participant
Blue light is generally used to kill the bacteria that causes acne, providing an effective treatment for blackheads and whiteheads, whereas wavelengths of red light are normally used to speed up healing and stimulate collagen production, simultaneously shrinking enlarged pores and tightening the skin.October 8, 2020 at 8:53 pm #1005memyselfandiParticipant
I agree with @rafrafrafraf001 so if you are planning to treat your acne, I suggest you use the combination of red and blue light.October 9, 2020 at 2:22 pm #1010nutrisha01Participant
Thanks for this kind of info. I’m planning to use it on my faceOctober 9, 2020 at 8:30 pm #1059paupauu001Participant
