If you’ve landed here, chances are you are wondering whether the new blue light therapy gadgets everyone keeps talking about these days are hyped up or not. Let me tell you something: when I first heard about them over a phone call with my friend I thought to myself: Whatever, she is so naive to fall for this. But then again, she had struggled with acne her entire life. Last time we’d talked she was visibly depressed and frustrated with the fact that she was now approaching 30 and noticed her first wrinkles and yet those annoying breakouts would not leave her alone. I couldn’t blame her for believing. I had my share of pimples that wouldn’t leave me alone, but I was good at covering them up with piles of makeup.
A couple of days later we met for lunch and I just couldn´t believe my eyes.
She looked refreshed and confident and almost 100% acne free. I noticed quickly she wasn’t hiding her acne under a full mask of makeup like I was. She smiled at me and right then and there I was a believer. So, yeah, I’ll be the first to admit I was wrong. I couldn’t stop asking questions about this new treatment for the rest of our lunch that day. It made me feel kind of bad that I wouldn’t let her grab a bite before she shared her secret with me. I will always remember that day as the day I learned my lesson not to jump to conclusions too soon… or I will miss out on opportunities like this! Not every day you run into friends who are honest and willing to share their beauty secrets, and now I am sharing this with you.
So, in a nutshell here’s the thing: as technology advances, at-home skincare devices have become more popular, accessible and easier to get.
But she had discovered something completely new. This was not a clone of the Clarisonic, there was science developed by NASA behind her new acne-fighting gadget. Something that only confined inside aesthetician and dermatologist offices before, she had now for her self to be used at home whenever she wanted to. The blue light led therapy treatment first of all is absolutely safe, and has no side-effects. Blue light therapy kills a bacteria called Propionibacterium acnes which is the cause of one type of acne and there are a lot of factors that take part in this condition. However, results have shown that the combination of both red and blue lights is more effective for the treatment of mild to severe acne while also delaying the first signs of aging. Bingo! I thought: perfect for anyone like me fighting both skin concerns at the same time.
The one she used, which I would purchase later that same day is Spark Photon LED Beauty Tech by Techture Beauty. This gadget has the perfect combination of LED light. Its benefits include collagen stimulation. Collagen is an essential protein that maintains a healthy, soft and beautiful skin. Collagen production increases which in turn repairs damaged tissue. Pores are minimized and its appearance is noticeably improved. In particular, acne-prone or sensitive skin types will be the most benefited from blue light therapy. Blue light soothes hypersensitive acne-prone skin while reducing inflammation. Redness is also visibly reduced. And blemishes and pimples will instantly shrink, and reveal a clear skin that stays that way longer. So, there you have it! That is the story of how I keep my skin clear with blue light therapy gadgets and never looked back.
