Red/Blue Light Therapy

Home » Aesthetics » Red/Blue Light Therapy

Most people are aware of the term LED, short for light-emitting diode. But few realize that this technology can also be used for numerous health benefits, such as cellular regeneration, photobiomodulation, and skin restoration. Both red and blue light therapies offer unique benefits for overall wellness and skin health.

Get Rejuvinated

That’s correct; delivering unique wavelengths of light energy can help you look and feel more revitalized. Cutella Medical Spa offers highly personalized red and blue light therapy to boost your energy level, stimulate cellular regeneration, improve metabolism, reduce acne, and make your skin glow from within.

Red Light Therapy

Red light therapy is a non-invasive regenerative treatment that involves delivering the red (610–660 nm) and near-infrared (820–850 nm) wavelengths of light energy into targeted areas on your skin and body. The targeted wavelengths of light energy are passed through your skin, where they interact with your cells to stimulate photobiomodulation, which optimizes your hormones, improves joint health, reduces inflammation, and revitalizes your complexion. Red light therapy is completely safe and non-invasive.

How Red Light Therapy Works

Red and infrared wavelengths of light energy interact with your cells and encourage them to function in specific ways to promote wellness. Red light has a biochemical effect on your cells and strengthens the mitochondria, which are used by your cells to produce energy. As such, red light therapy improves your metabolism, boosts cellular function, decreases inflammation, and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which make your skin look firm, taut, and youthful. Red light therapy makes you look and feel revitalized.

Blue Light Therapy

Blue light therapy is a non-invasive treatment that utilizes blue light wavelengths (405–420 nm) to target and destroy acne-causing bacteria on the skin’s surface.

This therapy penetrates the pores and eliminates bacteria without damaging surrounding tissue, reducing acne and preventing future breakouts. Blue light therapy also helps regulate oil production, minimize inflammation, and promote a clearer, healthier complexion. It is completely safe, painless, and effective, making it an ideal solution for those struggling with acne and seeking clearer skin.

How Blue Light Therapy Works

Blue light therapy works by emitting specific wavelengths (405–420 nm) that penetrate the skin’s surface to target and destroy acne-causing bacteria, specifically *Propionibacterium acnes* (P. acnes). The blue light activates porphyrins, compounds produced by the bacteria. When activated, these porphyrins generate reactive oxygen species that kill the bacteria. This process reduces acne and inflammation without harming surrounding tissue. Additionally, blue light therapy helps regulate sebaceous (oil) gland activity, further preventing acne. This non-invasive treatment promotes a clearer complexion through targeted bacterial eradication.

Benefits of Blue Light Therapy:

  • Targets and destroys acne-causing bacteria
  • Reduces existing acne and prevents future breakouts
  • Minimizes inflammation and redness
  • Regulates oil production in the skin
  • Promotes a clearer and healthier complexion
  • Non-invasive and painless treatment
  • No downtime is required after treatment
  • Helps improve skin texture and tone

Signs Indicating You May Need Blue Light Therapy:

  • Frequent acne breakouts
  • Persistent acne that does not respond to traditional treatments
  • Oily skin
  • Inflamed and red pimples
  • Enlarged pores
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (dark spots from acne)
