What Is Blue Light Therapy?
Blue light is a form of light that destroys acne-causing bacteria and dries out oil-producing glands. Blue light therapy channels that type of light using a device. The device is used to treat acne on the face and other areas on the body. Blue light treatments are very non-invasive, making them great for people who have sensitive skin and react negative to creams, cleansers, and ointments.
Where Can I Get Blue Light Therapy?
Historically, blue light therapy was only done in a professional dermatologist office. Celebrities like Jessica Alba pay hundreds of dollars for Blue Light Therapy to decrease acne and redness. Professional blue light therapy treatments can cost anywhere from $50-300 for one treatment.
Many dermatologists like Dr. Judith Hellman recommend blue light therapy to reduce acne, a condition affecting nearly 50 million Americans. The problem is, not everyone has that kind of cash to drop every time they have a breakout. Luckily, many scientific advancements have been made in recent years. These advancements allow at-home devices to use the revolutionary technology that was previously available only in professional settings.

Hold the device against each affected area for 3-5 minutes. The treatment time depends on the severity of the acne.
The Silk’n Blue can be used alone or in combination with any other acne creams, cleansers, or treatment systems. Dr. Judith Hellman recommends at-home devices to help keep breakouts to a minimum between visits to the dermatologist.
