Blue Light Therapy for acne
Aesthetic Solutions features Blue Light Therapy as one of our treatment options for acne. Acne can be very difficult to treat and control and there isn’t a treatment or prescription available that will work for every type of persistent cystic problem. It’s important to get acne under control as quick as possible in order to reduce the risk of acne scarring which can be challenging and frustrating if you’ve tried many prescription creams, antibiotics and over-the-counter products that were unsuccessful. Blue Light Therapy has become one of the better known proven treatments for reducing acne-causing bacteria and it may help those who have tried to find a solution for controlling acne.
Blue light kills the acne-causing bacteria, in the oil glands of the skin, known as Propionibacterium acnes, (P. acnes), which can cause inflammation. Acne is controlled with the reduction of this bacteria. Additionally, when the Blue Light is combined with a photosensitizing drug, it can produce excellent results for acne, that may not have responded with other types treatments. This combination therapeutic approach is known as photodynamic therapy or PDT.
To achieve better looking skin a number of treatments are necessary for Blue Light to decrease acne lesions, both pimples and cysts. This procedure is painless and safe for the treatment of acne and it may be right for you.
