    Default Who has used Blue light on their rosacea?

    Anyone that has used blue light (on its own or in combination with red) please take a moment to answer a few questions.

    Did you use it one its own or with another colour?

    If you used it with another, which colour?

    What make/model did you use?

    Why did you use it (what symptom)?

    If for P+P, were they pustules and/or papules or good old fashioned acne?

    Do you flush, have permanent redness or experience swelling)?

    Were you prone to acne breakouts before your rosacea?

    What is your skin type: Oily, dry, combination, other?

    What was the duration of your sessions and how often did you do them?

    Overall, how long did you use the blue light?

    Did your symptoms improve, get worse, stay the same?

    Anything else you would like to add, please do.


    Thanks so much! Your input will be very helpful to others looking for information.

    I know we've discussed this, but I thought

    Blue light ~ 420nm kills bacteria that exacerbate "teenage" acne.

    No idea how blue light would help erythmatotelangiectasic rosacea, or any acneform manifestations due to inflammation.

    Ya got me here, twickle. ;)

    Erythmatotelangiectatic rosacea & Ocular
    20 + laser treatments.
    Toleraine Soothing Light Facial Fluid for moisturizer. I don't use a special cleanser. Clonidine daily; klonopin sometimes.
    BEST and CURRENT TREATMENT I use: Low-Level Red Light Therapy LED array.
    Please feel free to PM me with your low-level red light therapy (LLRLT) questions. I'm happy to help if I can.

    That's my understanding too, but I thought, in all fairness and to keep an open mind with what a recent poster was asking after, that I would post this here.
    If it's helped someone, anyone, it would be great to hear about it.

    Hello

    I think my story is pretty well known but here is the report I wrote in 2001. I used red and blue in combination for several months with excellent results but switched to all red because we felt that was the main cause of the improvement. And before anybody asks - I had rosacea not acne.

    Thanks
