Acne-Derm – Avoid antibiotics with Blue/Red light for mild to moderate acne


Blue and Red Light therapy is a viable scientifically proven alternative to antibiotics for the treatment of mild to moderate acne. The FDA has approved Blue and Red light therapy for home use for acne.

There are a number of treatments available including creams, peels and antibiotics. However the rapid increase in the incidence of antibiotic resistance to the bacterium P. acnes and the need for alternative effective is of concern creating a need for effective, nonantibiotic treatments.

8 The main cause of antibiotic resistance is excessive antibiotic use. When we use antibiotics, some bacteria die but resistant bacteria can survive and even multiply. The overuse of antibiotics makes resistant bacteria more common. The more we use antibiotics, the more chances bacteria have to become resistant to them.

Phototherapy with visible light, specifically blue light, has been shown to improve skin conditions in cases of acne and blemishes.4 It is further reported to control the condition before an outbreak occurs. This blue light therapy is clinically shown to control acne without harsh chemicals or prescriptions and improves the skin’s appearance.

For LED Acne Light Therapy treatment, BLUE  (415nm wavelength) has more clinical studies, evidence, and proven results than any other wavelength


Blue Light Therapy is a safe, clinically proven, drug-free alternative that is FDA-approved for the management of acne vulgaris. It is a form of phototherapy that uses light in the blue wavelength range to kill the bacteria Propionibacterium acnes, or P. acnes, on the skin. It also reduces future outbreaks by regulating sebum production- the oily substance that blocks the pores and contributes to acne outbreaks It does this by reducing activity in the sebaceous glands, so they produce less of the oil that can plug the hair follicles, leading to acne.


The Dual power of BLUE with RED 


Once BLUE light kills the acne-causing bacteria, red light can come in to repair the skin damage the acne caused. Red light therapy significantly reduces inflammation and helps to repair skin damaged by acne outbreaks. It stimulates your natural production of collagen to assist in the healing process.









acnes make the clogged pores swell up into bumps called acne. One way to kill bacteria and clear up pimples is with light. The bacteria in your skin are sensitive to certain types of light. When you shine these lights on your skin, toxic substances form and kill the bacteria.


Phototherapy is an option for stubborn acne that doesn't improve with other treatments. It uses a special type of light to kill the bacteria on your skin that cause acne.

Blue LED light is most often used to treat acne. It may do this by reducing activity in the sebaceous glands, so they produce less of the oil that can plug the hair follicles, leading to acne.Oct 1, 2
