LED Light Therapy is a pain-free, non-invasive treatment that uses light to treat various skin conditions on and just beneath the skin. Generally, it uses blue and red LED lights to treat different skin conditions. The red light is used primarily in anti-aging treatment, while the blue LED light treats acne. Blue light is gentler compared to red light. Although it is possible to perform Blue Light Therapy at home, it is better to get it done by a professional dermatologist in his/her office.
What is Blue Light Therapy?
Blue Light Therapy is used to treat sun damage, acne and may potentially prevent skin cancer. It removes precancerous skin lesions and cancerous skin lesions which have not spread to other parts of the body or metastasized. Moreover, it reduces sebaceous hyperplasia or enlarged oil glands and improves skin texture. In addition to treating acne, it may help reduce acne scars. Generally, Blue Light Therapy is used in combination with Red LED Light Therapy in Dubai to treat acne, inflammation, and redness.
Aim of the Treatment
LED Light Therapy aims to:
- reduce aging signs
- treat acne
- remove acne scars
- regenerate skin tissues
- fight skin cancer
Who is the ideal candidate?
Anyone can undergo Blue Light Therapy except the people with:
- porphyria – a rare skin disorder causing hypersensitivity to light
- allergies to porphyrins
- active rashes
Before the procedure, candidates must follow some general pre-procedure instructions, including the following:
- Limit sun exposure for a few days before the treatment.
- Avoid wearing makeup when going for the treatment.
- Wear the safety goggles provided by the clinic at the time of treatment.
Blue Light Therapy is usually done as an outpatient procedure for precancerous skin lesions. It can be used to treat some forms of skin cancer when combined with a photosensitizing agent in a process called photodynamic therapy, but it is not a standalone treatment for skin cancer. Each session lasts for about fifteen to thirty minutes, depending on the severity of the condition.
Generally, the procedure is pain-free, and there is no discomfort. During the procedure, the dermatologist uses the best handheld LED light therapy device for optimum results. He/she will decide the frequency of the light depending on the skin condition. Using a device, the dermatologist will direct the selected light to the treatment area. As a result, the light will stimulate cellular processes, which can help reduce signs of aging and treat skin conditions.
Results and Recovery
After the treatment, there may be some redness and inflammation on the treated area, but that fades quickly. The treatment results may become visible between 2-4 weeks, but the timeline may vary depending on the individual and the condition being treated.
