Coupled blue and red light-emitting diodes therapy efficacy in patients with rosacea: two case reports.

J Med Case Rep. 2020 Jan 28;14(1):22

Authors: Sorbellini E, De Padova MP, Rinaldi F

Abstract
BACKGROUND: Rosacea is a common inflammatory skin condition affecting approximately 5% of the world population. Therapeutic approaches to rosacea are focused on symptom suppression by means of anti-inflammatory agents. More recently, photodynamic therapy, especially light-emitting diodes, has been introduced as a valid alternative to conventional therapy.
CASE PRESENTATION: In the present work, we reported the efficacy and safety of light-emitting diodes therapy combining blue (480 nm) and red (650 nm) light for the treatment of two patients with papulopustular rosacea: a 22-year-old Caucasian woman and a 68-year-old Caucasian man.
CONCLUSIONS: This kind of treatment could represent an effective, safer, and well-tolerated approach for the treatment of such conditions.
