Blue light therapy acne treatment machines. Helpful or just a gimmick?

In brief: Acne treatments

Photodynamic therapy using a topical sensitizing agent and red or blue light can certainly help acne.
Non-prescription blue-light devices can possibly help but they probably work only for some of the less severe acne cases.
