How It Works
The blue light targets the acne-causing bacteria in the oil glands. These bacteria contain a certain type of pigment that, when activated by the blue light, destroy the bacteria from the inside out. By eliminating this underlying cause of acne, the skin is better able to recover and blemishes will begin to disappear.
At the same time, the red light emitted from the applicator works to reduce the inflammation of existing acne and promote faster healing. Because red light can penetrate farther into the layers of skin, it’s better able to treat deeper pores and can help with reducing the production of acne-causing sebum. Research has shown that when blue and red light are administered together, like they are with the Venus Versa™ Acne Dual applicator, the results are much better than with just blue light alone.
