Blue Skin Light

How does Dr. Müller Blue Skin Light work?


The human skin secretes an oily matter called sebum, to lubricate your skin and hair. An excessive amount of sebum on your skin can clog your pores. The bacteria in these clogged pores are accumulated which results in infections, redness and swelling of the skin.

The reason for increased production of sebum has to do with an imbalance in hormones. This is the trigger for many people to get acne. Acne can therefore occur during puberty, but also during pregnancy, menopause, medication and even your lifestyle influences.

The Dr. Müller Blue Skin Light lamps emit blue light at a wavelength of 415 nanometers. This helps the skin to reduce its production of sebum and kills bacteria causing infections. The result is a smoother skin, a more beautiful appearance and a higher self-esteem!
