Are you suffering from the burning, redness, and other symptoms of rosacea? Have you already tried most everything without success?
I have good news for you. Light therapy is proving effective in soothing, and reversing rosacea symptoms.
You may be wary, and for good reason. There are endless pages of conflicting information out there about light based therapies for rosacea.
Well, now that you’re here, you can take a deep breath and relax. I am going to teach you what light therapy is, and what is isn’t, and exactly how it can help you end the burning, redness, and long list of other symptoms you may have been dealing with for years. As we go,
I’ll be here if you have any questions.
Let’s get started.
What is Light Therapy?
If you’ve been doing your research on effective rosacea treatments, then you’ve already read more about light therapy than the average person. So let’s start with what light therapy is
Light therapy is not laser therapy.
Lasers take light and focus it (unnaturally) into a continuous beam. Lasers work by destroying specific tissue, then depend on your body to clean up the mess. Lasers have the potential to do a great job – they also have the potential to do more harm than good. Light therapy poses no such risk.
Light therapy is not IPL.
IPL takes non-laser light and blasts it at your skin at high intensity. Again, specific wavelengths of light are chosen to target certain cells or depths of skin, damage is done to those targeted areas, then your body cleans up the mess. Granted, the damage is usually less than with lasers, resulting in a less painful experience, and less drastic risks, but still, it’s not light therapy.
What light therapy is.
Light therapy is a branch of alternative medicine. It uses natural light of different colors (wavelengths) to cure, treat, and prevent a growing list of conditions, including rosacea.
Light by nature is electromagnetic energy, traveling at roughly 186 thousand miles per second. It does not need any help from man to have an impact.
Here’s an example you might be familiar with: blue light therapy for jaundice. Blue light has been the standard treatment for neonatal jaundice for decades. These infants do not have to be bludgeoned with light for it to work. Instead, their delicate skin is bathed in gentle blue light for hours. Without any sensation or side effect, the light interacts with their blood through the capillaries in their skin, breaking down the bilirubin, so their body can clear it away. That is light therapy.
Every color of light works in a different way, but the overall experience of treatment is the same. Light therapy does no harm. It is natural, gentle, safe, effective, and without side effects.
Here’s how light therapy is going to work for you.
Red Light Therapy
Red light therapy helps to reduce redness, swelling, itching, the dry/tight feeling, the burning feeling, and even the little pimple-like bumps seen in the second rosacea subtype.
