For those of you unfamiliar with what light therapy is, it’s a treatment that sends light waves deep into the skin.
In the same way plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue, light can trigger natural reactions in human bodies as well. Your skin responds to wavelengths and specific wavelength ranges stimulate different skin reactions.
HERE ARE THE MAIN FUNCTIONS OF EACH TYPE OF LIGHT:
Helps reduce inflammation (also known as the root of most, if not all, skin care evils), accelerates healing and promotes circulation.
Helps build up the two protein pillars of anti-aging: collagen and elastin.
Helps reduce inflammation and promotes circulation.
Destroys P. acne bacteria, preventing new breakouts while treating existing ones.
Light therapy does all of this quickly, naturally, and without side effects. It’s non-invasive, chemical-free, painless and requires no recovery time! All it does is stimulate your skin’s natural abilities without the use of any harsh ingredients or chemicals.
I used to have to go to my dermatologist’s office to receive these treatments, however thanks to the advent of at-home devices, I can perform light therapy whenever I want and in the comfort of my own home!
I do a blue light treatment to improve skin texture, destroy & sterilize acne causing bacteria, balance my pH, decrease redness and inflammation, and reduce enlarged oil glands. It also helps remove sun spots and even scars that were originally caused by acne or other conditions. I try and do this nightly before bed, however sometimes I’m exhausted and it ends up being way less often.
I noticed a difference right away in my skin when I started doing this treatment regularly and I can absolutely tell when I’ve been more diligent about my usage or when I’ve slacked off. It really reduces skin aggravation and just smooths and clears my complexion! It's definitely worth the small investment and I highly recommend it to anyone struggling with inflamed skin (especially if other methods haven’t been successful for you in the past)!
Espada Blue Light Acne Treatment
I use this little handheld device that I hold over each area of my face for just 30 seconds (although I like to go over a problem area maybe 2 or 3 times). This blue light device is super lightweight and compact so it’s easy to travel with which is perfect for me!
I would have normally been very skeptical about the efficacy of this treatment, however, when my dermatologist puts her stamp of approval on something and uses it in her own office, I know it’s the real deal! If you’ve never heard of light therapy before, I’m sure this sounds like science fiction to you. I can assure you, this is a medically sound treatment even though it sounds like magic! So far, I’ve only ever done blue and red light sessions, but I plan on trying them all out!
