Acne Treatment

There’s no reason to suffer with acne. If you have acne, it can be embarrassing and lead to low self esteem. Without treatment severe cases of acne can be disfiguring, leaving permanent scars. New techniques are available to treat acne and minimize outbreaks.

Acne is an equal opportunity condition, afflicting teenagers, young adults, and occasionally even more mature adults. Blue Light Acne Treatment uses light – without drugs or antibiotics – to treat hard to control acne, including acne vulgaris. The special blue light kills the p. acnes bacterium that grows inside clogged pores that swell up and form pimples on the skin.

Light treatments involve sitting with your face close to the light for a short time (typically 8 to 16 mins 40 secs) about once or twice per week for a period of about five weeks or so. The procedure is safe, not painful, and not hot. Over the course of the treatments, many people experience noticeable control or clearing up of their acne. Just as with any treatment, blue light does not necessarily work on everyone.
