If you have rosacea, you know how difficult it can be to treat the symptoms.

Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition that causes redness, visible blood vessels, bumps, and flushing throughout your complexion. You may feel like you have tried almost everything, from topical treatments, to oral antibiotics, and still have found it incredibly difficult to find a treatment that works effectively, and consistently. There is no single cause for rosacea. In fact, experts aren’t even sure what causes it.

Rosacea is cyclical, meaning that it tends to come and go in waves. It can also be triggered by certain things, including:

  • Stress
  • Pollution
  • Exercise
  • Sun exposure
  • Alcohol
  • Spicy food
  • Extreme temperatures

Fortunately for rosacea sufferers, red light therapy is increasingly being recognized by doctors and skin health experts as a safe and natural way to treat a number of skin conditions, including rosacea.

Rosacea is caused by broken and inflamed capillaries underneath the skin, causing redness. LED light therapy helps to promote collagen production and renews skin cells, which is an ideal therapy for targeting inflammation.

LED light therapy aids in reducing general skin redness along with promoting healthy cellular function, skin healing, soothing and calming sensitive skin. The reason LED light therapy has been found to be so successful is that it penetrates below the surface of the skin, and stimulates better cellular function. This makes it an effective treatment for a variety of skin conditions, and even better, there are no known side effects or downtime.

How it works

LED light therapies are long wavelengths of natural light that do not involve ultraviolet light. This means that your skin won’t be damaged by this type of light exposure. In fact, your skin benefits from it.

It triggers specific cells in the dermis, fibroblasts, to increase their metabolic activity, and consequently, this leads to an increase in collagen and elastin production. The light penetrates deep into the skin and performs several important functions.

  • Increased production of ATP.
  • Increased production of collagen.
  • Increased formation of new capillaries that deliver oxygen and nutrients to the skin.
  • Stimulation of the lymphatic system, this helps to remove waste and toxins from the body.

Rather than eliminate the symptoms of rosacea by applying an external force to destroy certain skin structures, red light therapy works by increasing energy production within your cells to allow it to use its own natural defences to reduce symptoms and prevent flare-ups.

It is important to perform short frequent treatments regularly to see results. A device like the Q-Rejuvalight Pro Facewear that performs short 3-minute LED light therapy treatments without causing excess heat can be effective when it comes to helping reduce rosacea.

The effectiveness of LED light therapy on rosacea will depend on your skin’s sensitivity to red light, the severity of your symptoms, and your commitment to carrying out consistent treatments.

However, multiple studies and clinical research have shown success with helping soothe redness and inflamed skin. LED light therapy is a non-invasive, natural and painless treatment for common skin problems. By promoting skin healing at the cellular level and helping strengthen the skin’s barrier, it may quickly become the go-to treatment for this repeatedly uncomfortable and occasionally embarrassing skin condition, known as rosacea.
