LED Light Therapy, Does It Really Work? - Dr Sravani Sandhya, Aura Skin & Hair Clinic, Vizag


LED light therapy is something that is synonymous with all the new age dermatological and skincare clinics worldwide. It is a treatment that uses varying wavelengths of light in order to treat different skin conditions, the most popular being red and blue. NASA originally developed it for plant growth experiments on shuttle missions and later found it to have promise for wound treatment. LED light therapy is now used by some aestheticians to help regenerate the skin from aging. It’s also used for acne. Your healthcare provider uses red or blue light frequencies based on the skincare concern. Red is primarily used for anti-aging, while blue is used for acne treatment.


Unlike other types of light therapy, LEDs do not contain ultraviolet rays and are therefore safe for regular use. LED light therapy has no side effects compared to other anti-aging treatments such as chemical peels, dermabrasion, and laser therapy. It is relatively safe for all skin colours and types. Please mention the medicines you take for acne or other skin conditions to your doctor before you start the therapy. You should avoid LED therapy if you have skin rashes. Side effects are extremely rare but may include increased inflammation, redness and rashes.


Stay away from the sun for about 48 hours and use sunscreen. In case of any redness or swelling please apply cold packs.


This is a convenient procedure and takes about 20 minutes at the most. It is the perfect treatment to do in the office lunch break. It is most effective when performed every week and later every couple of months.

Red light

Red, or infrared, light is used for treating the epidermis, which is the outer layer of skin. When the light is applied to your skin, the epidermis absorbs it and then stimulates collagen proteins.

In theory, more collagen means that your skin will look smoother and fuller, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Red LED light is also thought to reduce inflammation while improving circulation, which can give you a healthier glow.

Blue light

Blue LED light therapy, on the other hand, targets the sebaceous glands, which are also called oil glands. They’re located beneath your hair follicles.

Sebaceous glands are necessary for lubricating your skin and hair so that it doesn’t dry out. However, these glands can become overactive, leading to oily skin and acne.

The theory is that blue LED light therapy can target these oil glands and make them less active. In turn, you may see fewer acne breakouts. Blue light can also kill acne-causing bacteria beneath the skin, which can help treat severe acne pimples, including cysts and nodules.

How long does it take for light therapy to work?

You can see results from the first treatment, however we would recommend a minimum course of six. For more dramatic results and if you'd like to supercharge your skin we would advise you to take a course of 12 treatments.
