How can light therapy benefit my skin?

Introduce the actual colors of the rainbow to your skin. One method is through blue and red light therapy. Different wavelengths of light within the color spectrum can have different effects on the skin. Blue light attacks acne bacteria and is a good alternative for those that can't tolerate creams and pills. Red light has anti-aging powers and is shown to stimulate collagen and elastin. In-office visits can cost thousands of dollars, but handheld devices that cost just under $250 are a more cost-effective method of benefiting from this kind of therapy.
