Rosacea is a chronic inflammation of the facial skin that affects millions of people worldwide. It is characterised by redness, flushing, and pimples. In some cases, it can also lead to swelling and irritation. There is no cure for rosacea, but there are treatments that can help manage the symptoms. Rosacea is often treated with medication, but some people prefer to use natural remedies, LED light therapy is one such remedy that is gaining popularity.

Can LED Light Therapy help Rosacea?

LED light therapy is a safe, non-invasive, and effective treatment for rosacea. It uses specific wavelengths of light to reduce inflammation and redness. It can also help improve the appearance of the skin and reduce the symptoms of rosacea. The best light to use for rosacea is Red LED light, this is because the red light penetrates to the level where it’s needed to increase energy production in the cells, and it works to reduce inflammation. Although this is not a total cure for rosacea, it can provide some much-needed relief. Unlike most rosacea treatments on the market, red light therapy is not a superficial remedy that addresses only symptoms. Rather, red light treats the root of the problem.

In addition to LED light therapy, treatment for inflammation and redness also includes identifying and avoiding environmental aggressors that may trigger flare-ups. Consider cutting out alcohol, caffeine, spicy foods, and stress (as best you can). Some other common triggers include sun exposure, hot weather, heavy exercises, and hot baths. 

To help identify personal rosacea causes, keep a diary of daily activities and foods that could directly affect your skin.
