How does LED light therapy heal acne and acne scars?

What is LED light therapy?

LED light therapy stimulates the natural healing processes of the body by exposing the skin to a series of light waves with different lengths. LED stands for light emitting diodes. Different LED light colors can address different skin concerns including acne, hyperpigmentation, redness, and aging lines.

Clinically proven technology

Having been scientifically studied for over 2 decades, light therapy is clinically proven to be highly beneficial for the skin. After it was used by NASA for healing wounds in space, LED light therapy is increasing in popularity as a skincare treatment practiced by many medical professionals and beauticians.

Fun fact: a Nobel Prize of Medicine was awarded for the use of light therapy in 1903!

Safe and gentle treatment

LEDs do not comprise of ultraviolet (UV) rays making it safe for regular use. It is also found to be gentler than common treatments like chemical peels, dermabrasion, and laser therapy. Where lasers are intense enough to cut and burn skin, LEDs can stimulate bodily response but not damage any tissue.

How does led light therapy benefit my skin?

DemarkQ products use a combined treatment of red and blue LED light to target acne and its residual scarring. As topical skincare products often do not get rid of acne completely. LED light uses the bodies natural healing processes to heal from the inside out.

Blue light kills acne causing bacteria

Blue light has been found to be an effective treatment for active breakouts.  Firstly, blue light kills Propionibacterium acnes (P.acnes) that cause nodular and cystic acne. Secondly, blue light also helps regulate sebum production and preventing excessively oily skin.

Red light repairs the skin

Red light penetrates deeper than the surface, to the epidermis layer of the skin. Here, it stimulates collagen proteins, accelerating healing in the skin and muscle tissues. This process helps fade acne scars without inflammation and redness.
