BLUE LIGHT ACNE TREATMENT.
Blue light acne treatment is a form of visible light therapy. It is used to treat mild to moderate acne outbreaks using blue light phototherapy. Our Vancouver Medi Spa, Skin Solution Clinic is one of the best practitioners in the lower mainland that provides this service.
ACNE LIGHT THERAPY. HOW IT WORKS.
Backed by scientific research, phototherapy using blue light is highly effective for treating acne, especially acne caused by inflammation or bacteria.Blue light wavelengths have an antimicrobial effect, making it effective at killing several types of bacteria that can collect in your pores and oil glands and cause breakouts.
BLUE LIGHT THERAPY FOR ACNE
As an added benefit, blue light acne therapy also helps improve your general skin condition by neutralizing free radicals that oxidants that age your face. The treatment also has anti-inflammatory benefits, which decreases other symptoms of acne, such as redness. Learn more about other acne treatments ACNE SOLUTIONS>
LED LIGHT THERAPY WITH CELLUMA™
The Celluma™ device uses blue and red light phototherapy to help correct acne issues as well as offer anti-aging benefits. The blue lights focus in eliminating pore clogging bacteria while the red light stimulates collagen production. The resulting effect improves redness, scars, texture, fine lines and skintone. A series of treatments performed at least once per week for the first 4 – 6 weeks are recommended for best results and regular scheduled sessions should be scheduled for long lasting improvements.
How to prepare for your treatment, and what to expect: For two weeks prior to a light therapy session, you may need to avoid retinols, glycolic acid and other skin care products that can thin or irritate your skin. Avoid tanning beds and prolonged, unprotected sun exposure in the days just before your treatment appointments. After your LED Light treatment your skin may be pink or red. There might be some mild skin peeling or sensitivity from the treated area. We recommend not using any scrubs or exfoliants for a few days following your treatment. While we recommend you wear sunscreen every day, you will want to be even more vigilant with sunblock while your skin recovers.
