Blue Light Acne Treatment
If you suffer from mild to moderate acne with inflammation, you may well be a candidate for a light-based system called Blue Light. Your treatments are short, painless sessions of blue light exposure which help minimize your acne. Blue Light is a drug-free treatment with no downtime, no pain, no irritation, no problems with the sun or physical activities, and no side effects.
Most acne patients see a decrease in the number and severity of acne blemishes and lesions within a month of twice-weekly treatments. Optimum results will be seen between 4-8 weeks after treatment. The light stimulates natural processes that continue after the treatment has stopped.
Blue Light in Action
How Blue Light Works
Acne begins when the sebaceous glands become clogged and there is a build-up of acne bacteria called P.acnes. This bacteria build-up causes inflammation. Certain light spectrums activate bacteria-fighting agents produced by your body called porphyrins.
Blue Light is a high-intensity blue-violet light activates these porphyrins and starts a chemical reaction that produces peroxide. This naturally produced peroxide is what destroys the P. acnes bacteria (the root cause of inflamed blemishes).

Blue Light causes acne bacteria to "self-destruct" while having no effect on your normal skin. Blue Light Acne Therapy is suitable for all body areas, including the large areas of the back and shoulders and the sensitive beard area.
What is a Blue Light Treatment like?
Following the cleansing of your skin, you will sit comfortably in front of the light for a period of minutes with protective goggles over your eyes. Blue Light is pain-free. There is no peeling, no irritation, no restriction from sun exposure and no after-effects from the treatment. Blue Light gently goes to work to reduce your acne. Immediately after a treatment you are free to resume your normal activities.
