For the light treatment can I use regular blue bulb that you can purchase at any hardware store to treat your acne? Or do i need a special kind of light?

I'm pretty sure you need a special kind of light. Ok so i don't know much about the light process, but at least by me posting i bumped your post up a bit so maybe someone who does know something will see it! lol. good luck.

SkinTastic, the blue light in my Dermalux unit is in the wavelength range 405-420 nanometres. You can search but I think you'll have a job finding such a light unless it's specifically aimed for acne treatment.
