Many medical photodynamic therapy protocols combine light therapy at the same time as a topical medicine. DUSA, some psoriasis therapies, etc. Even green tea is claimed to increase benefits of red light therapy substantially. I think in general, the mechanism is increased absorption of the topical into the dermis and possibly into the cells themselves. In addition red light has an anti-inflammatory effect which can lessen the side effects of powerful topicals while retaining their efficacy..

I wonder if powerful red light therapy (Joovv/Omnilux ~100mw/cm2 power) could boost the effects of a chemical peel such as glycolic or salicylic if applied during the peel?
