Blue LED light is a UV free bulb that emits a therapeutic wavelength to target and kill acne causing bacteria. Once the light penetrates the skin, the prevention of new acne occurs. Blue LED Light is a safe treatment that is intended for people with mild acne to moderate acne, but it is not recommended for anyone who has lupus, is pregnant, has epilepsy or is photosensitive. Those who are treated with Blue LED light should expect to see noticeable results in about 3 to 4 weeks.
The inflammation of acne can be one of the most uncomfortable attacks on the skin. The pimples, blackheads, cysts and whiteheads on the face, back and arms can be devastating and cause an overwhelming sense of insecurity. Fortunately, there are some solutions that are non-invasive, painless and quick to treat this skin condition and prevent the flare-ups from reoccurring.
Blue Light Therapy is effective at attacking the p. acnes bacteria that causes an acne outbreak. A laser light is used to destroy the p. acnes bacteria, but the Blue Light is more of a multi-step process and offers long term effectiveness.
Bacteria that live in the sebum and is released by the sebaceous glands deep in the follicles and pores contribute to acne problems. When there is an excess of sebum oil, the follicles and pores become clogged, causing the acnes bacteria to multiply, which results in an inflammation of acne. There are some concerns that patients may have before having the treatment. We address some of the most common questions.
Blue Light Therapy Destroys Acne Causing Bacteria
Our treatment uses a specialized laser that tuned to specific blue light wavelengths to destroy the bacteria, which develops into inflammatory acne.
This therapy addresses moderate to severe outbreaks of acne. The light waves are similar to ultraviolet light, but tuned to a different wavelength that, while effective, causes no free radical damage to the skin. The light waves are delivered to the dermal layer of the skin. Once the light waves penetrate the skin, they kill the p.acnes bacteria that is causing the inflammation when sebum oil blocks the follicles. For any lingering bacteria that has not been destroyed the light waves trigger porphyrins, a natural bacteria-fighting compound in the body that chemically reacts to the light wave by producing peroxide, which subsequently will kill the remaining p. acnes bacteria.
Blue Light is a treatment that is highly effective without the supplemental use of acne medication although it can be more effective when combined with topical Wilma Schumann acne serums and washes and Wilma Schumann collagen hydrating serum.
