What is Blue Light Therapy?

Blue light therapy is a variation of phototherapy and photodynamic therapy (PDT) that involves the use of blue light, without a photosensitizing agent, to treat skin conditions. This therapy capitalizes on the properties of blue light to target and improve skin issues such as acne and rosacea. The treatment is simple and involves exposing the affected skin to a specific wavelength of blue light, which has been found to have therapeutic effects.

What Are The Benefits of Blue Light Therapy?

Blue light therapy offers several benefits, making it a popular choice for patients looking for non-invasive treatment options:

  • Effective for Acne and Rosacea: Blue light helps reduce bacteria on the skin and decreases inflammation, leading to an improvement in acne and rosacea symptoms.
  • Non-Invasive with Minimal Side Effects: Unlike more invasive procedures, blue light therapy is non-invasive and typically has minimal side effects, which may include temporary redness or sensitivity to light.

What is the Treatment Process for Blue Light Therapy?

The treatment process for blue light therapy begins with preparing the skin. The skin will be cleansed to remove3 any makeup, oils, and dirt. Then, the treatment area will be exposed to blue light for a prescribed period, typically around 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the condition being treated. After treatment, it is important to protect the skin from sunlight, as it will temporarily be more sensitive to UV rays.

What Are the Side Effects of Blue Light Therapy?

While blue light therapy is generally safe, some patients may experience mild side effects, including:

  • Redness
  • Stinging or Pain
  • Peeling

How Much Does Blue Light Therapy Cost?

The cost of blue light therapy can vary based on the area being treated and the number of sessions required. Sanova Dermatology customizes each treatment plan to the patient’s specific condition, which will be outlined and discussed during a personal consultation. At this time, we will be able to provide you with a transparent explanation of all costs associated with your treatment.
