Acne Light Therapy is one of the newer ways to treat acne of mild to moderate severity. The treatment is also suitable for people who do not like taking oral medication, pregnant women and women who are breastfeeding. You will have the treatment twice per week; once with the blue light and once with red light.
Blue or Red light activates a chemical that is present inside a bacterium that plays a role in acne. After the chemical is activated, the bacterium is destroyed. Red light suppresses the inflammation caused by acne.
Studies have shown that Acne Light Therapy can reduce the inflammatory lesions of acne by 60-70% over a period of 6 weeks. The treatment is normally combined with Skinoren cream that is applied twice daily.
