Acne is a common, chronic skin disorder affecting most teens to some extent, and adults as well. It is caused by several factors, including clogging of hair follicles, excess oil production, bacteria and hormones. Comedones, papules, pustules, nodules and cysts can occur on the face, neck, chest, shoulders and back. Acne can be disfiguring and emotionally upsetting. Since it can cause permanent scarring, acne should be treated early.
With today’s technology, there’s no reason to accept pimples on your face or on any other part of your body. Acne can be resolved completely or improved dramatically with available treatments usable by anyone at any age under most circumstances. The goals of acne therapy are to eliminate painful cysts, improve appearance and self-image, and prevent scarring.
How does Blue LED Light Therapy Work?
The Blue LED Light Therapy is FDA approved for the treatment of moderate acne. It destroys the P. acnes bacteria in your skin.
The acne therapy is a new light-based system for the treatment of inflamed, mild to moderate acne blemishes. It involves a short, painless treatment regimen that destroys acne-causing bacteria within the skin while having no effect on the normal skin. Applied in six treatments over a three-week period, most patients see a dramatic decrease in the number and severity of acne blemishes and lesions; some report significant improvements after only two or three sessions. During treatment sessions, which last approximately 20 minutes, the patient lies comfortably while the therapeutic light is applied. The treatments are easy, relaxing, painless and safe. There are no side effects and patients can return to their normal activities immediately after treatment.
What to expect from Blue LED Light Therapy?
Treatments with Blue Light have no adverse side effects or patient discomfort. The Blue Light treatments are gentle and do not harm surrounding tissues. After two to four treatments, most patients experience a reduction in the severity of their acne and a reduction in the number of pustules and papules. Prior to your Blue Light treatments we may recommend extractions and/or Micodermabrasion to clean out your pours to help your acne heal faster.
