What Causes Acne?

Sebum travels from the sebaceous glands through pores, then hair follicles are blocked by dead skin cells.  This creates a congestion of sebum and inflammation where bacteria can occur.  Hence your face, neck, chest and back are replete with blackheads, whiteheads, pimples and cysts – Everybody’s favourite.  Adding to this is acne’s prevalence during winter. When the temperate drops your skin dries up as there is less moisture in the air causing sebum glands to go into overdrive.

How Does Blue Light LED Treatment Work?

Unlike topical treatments that focus on the superficial, blue light therapy has been clinically proven to attack acne at its source.  Blue light penetrates the skin’s hair follicles along with the pores which hold bacteria and cause inflammation resulting in acne.  Bacteria hate blue light; the light shuts down their metabolism and kills them.  Whilst topical treatments work on decreasing inflammation and bacteria on the skin’s surface, the blue light will eliminate the acne-causing bacteria within the skin, not giving it a chance to feed off the oil glands and create unsightly redness and inflammation.

Why Choose Blue Light LED Treatment?

Blue light therapy is more gentle than typical treatments, such as extractions (ouch!), as it’s simply powered by blue light being less irritating than alternate methods.  LED light doesn’t contain any UV, so there is no damage to skin, creating a pain free treatment.  Laser is safe for every skin type and colour.  It is usually administered by single light units or formations of panels that are directed towards the skin several inches away.  No skin-to-machine contact is required.  The first minute or so the lights take a bit of getting used to then most people even fall asleep, aided by eye goggles or eye stickers for protection.

What is Special About Blue Light LED Treatment?

No, looking deep into your laptop or phone’s blue light won’t give you a complexion to put Gigi Hadid out of business.  The lights differ due to their wave lengths.  Your computer has short wave lengths emitted at high energy or radiation, resulting in free radical potentially damaging skin’s outer layer.  Blue lights from computers encourage the stimulation of free radical oxygen that can be toxic to skin’s bacteria, especially the bacteria responsible for acne.  Blue light therapy acts more like a laser, sending low-level light energy into deep layers of skin and allowing it to transform your skin.

There are use-at-home blue light devices that can be used every day, which will benefit your skin but are no comparison to the strength of laser used in office.  Plus, the at-home masks make you look like a stormtrooper.  Not something your partner wants to come home to! Best results come with visiting once a month, and frequent treatments are possible due to the lack of side effects.
