Copy the “Acne Vulgaris in Women Red Light Dose” Study with Your Lamp

In this study, subjects receiving red light therapy saw a significant reduction of acne vulgaris facial lesions. If you want to copy this study at home, you have two choices. Use a light already mentioned in the study, and follow the treatment time per session in that box. Or calculate your light’s treatment time per session to match the energy used in this study.

If you use one of the lights I mention below, you need only follow the treatment time and distance mentioned in that light’s box. But if you use a light not in the list, then we need to customize your treatment time calculation.

Copy the “Acne Vulgaris in Women Red Light Dose”

Authors don’t always give specific parameters they used. In this study, they treated acne with wavelengths between 630 nm and 700 nm (red). Fortunately, red light therapy does not need to be precise. Each target structure has an optimum wavelength it absorbs best, but the cytochromes will absorb light of wavelengths nearby the optimal wavelength. If your light outputs between 630 nm and 700 nm, it will be close enough to copy this acne study.

In the study Acne Vulgaris in Women Red Light Dose  researchers treated patients with wavelengths between 630 nm to 700 nm light two times per week for 4 weeks.  After 8 treatments, the subjects had “decreased acne lesions” and “decreased skin sebum.”
