    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!

    Hey Becky,

    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?

    Hi Grace,
    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!

    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!.

    Stay Beautiful!.
    Grace.

    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!

    You would benefit from combination red and blue light therapy.

    Will there be any side effect if I use both lights to treat some acne marks too?

    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.

    Yes, actually it depends on you on what works for you the best.

    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?

    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.

    I agree with @rafrafrafraf001 so if you are planning to treat your acne, I suggest you use the combination of red and blue light.

    @paupauu001 I am originally using green tea toner or serum after I use RLT on my face. It helps my skin recover.
