Since light therapy for skin care is such a new and emerging field, people often email us asking what they can expect in terms of results, how quickly they will see an effect, and how long they may have to continue using the device. The short answer is that there is no real way to predict the outcome for any one person. The human body is a complex entity, and each person will react slightly differently to blue light therapy.
What we can provide our customers is real results, from real users of our device, that have had success over the past several years. When using a high intensity blue light with the correct wavelength (around 415nm), greater than 90% of those who try it will see benefits in reducing or eliminating their acne. This can show up as quickly as one or two treatments, or take as long as 4-6 weeks of regular usage. It varies greatly depending on the severity of your acne, the amount of oil on the skin, and what acne type you have.
Additionally, you must make sure to maintain a consistent regimen using the BlueMD, meaning at least 3 times a week initially, for 20-30 minutes per session. Some of our customers have noticed a decrease in redness or inflammation of their acne immediately after their first blue light treatment. Others experience a slight worsening of their acne at first, as the bacteria come to the surface of the skin. However, all users of blue light therapy will know whether it is working for them within the first 4-6 weeks. This is exactly why we provide the 30 Day Guarantee policy, as we are interested in making sure this device works for our customers. We don't want you to be left with an expensive paperweight!
