RadiantBlue LED activates chemicals called porphyrins (which are produced by the P. acnes bacteria responsible for causing acne inflammation) creating intracellular singlet oxygen – inducing bacterial cell death. This is combined with RadiantRed low level laser which has anti inflammatory properties, minimizing the redness of acne lesions and promoting healthier skin.
Correct wavelengths at optimal intensities ensure optimal results.
This reduces the bacterial colonization of the sebaceous gland, reducing sebum production to normal and reducing the production of proinflammatory cytokines.
Simultaneously, RadiantBlue induces anti-inflammatory cytokines, stimulating specific immunoregulatory pathways.
Studies have shown combination blue & red phototherapy reduces inflammatory acne lesion count by up to 80% 12 weeks from the end of treatment.
