A guide to LED light therapy colors and the benefits of each

LED light therapy is a revolutionary treatment that can be used to address skin concerns of all kinds. While the most common colors of LED light therapy are red and blue, there a quite a few more that also have great benefits. In this guide, we will discuss all the colors, what they do, and what they can be used to treat.

The therapeutic wavelengths and their penetration depths

Different lights of color will penetrate the skin to different depths. As you can see from the chart above, near-infrared light penetrates the deepest into the skin and blue light penetrates the skin to the smallest depth. Therefore, the color you need is most dependent on the condition or problem that you are trying to treat. Since acne appears on the surface of the skin, blue light works well to treat this. Red light is also often used to treat acne as that light penetrates deeper into the skin's surface allowing it to fight against the acne that appears deeper. Since near-infrared light penetrates the deepest into the skin, it is often used to give an accelerated boost in treatment.
