Light therapy is based on the principle that certain lengths of light can affect living organisms in different ways and is therefore often used to relieve pain, relieve depression and improve skin.
Various treatment methods with light therapy are available, such as LED light therapy with blue and red light-emitting diodes. During various treatments, subjects are exposed to specific lengths of light, including lasers, fluorescent lamps, diodes, and bright light that emits all colours of the spectrum.

The top light therapy applications include:
- Acne light therapy can kill acne-causing bacteria, reducing pain and complications associated with surgical removal of acne. The light penetrates the cell walls of the skin, preventing bacteria from causing further breakouts.
- Can treat depression caused by lack of light during winter by exposing the patient to varying amounts of light. With this method, patients begin to believe that spring and summer are coming and therefore stop taking antidepressants.
- It is used to work in the circadian rhythm of the human body or in the sleep rhythm, thereby improving the quality of human sleep. Studies have shown that people's sleep habits are largely controlled by light, and this therapy works by giving them different amounts of light at different times of the day. Not only does it provide a good night's sleep for one person, but it also reduces the pain of jet lag for frequent travellers.
- It is very useful in treating skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis and is much faster than shampoos and ointments.
