Blue Light Therapy Overview
Blue light therapy is a non-invasive acne treatment that targets certain skin conditions and gets primarily offered to treat acne. It’s an effective option for people that have limited success with over-the-counter acne medications and creams.
LED light technology gets used for blue light therapy. It’s safe, and most clients see remarkable results after a round of blue light therapy sessions.
At Renew MD, we recommend blue light therapy combined with salicylic treatments, chemical peels, facial cleanings, and topical treatments to provide optimal results. Our expert aestheticians will discuss the best combination of treatments with you.
How Does Blue Light Therapy Treat Acne?
Blue light therapy is undoubtedly an innovative acne treatment. But, how does it work?
The blue LED lights attack the Propionibacterium acnes (or P. acnes) bacteria on the skin and destroy it. Although it forms part of the normal flora on the skin, research shows that it’s also responsible for causing acne.
Blue light therapy is an FDA-approved method of targeting such bacteria safely, and it offers the best results for people experiencing moderate acne outbreaks on their skin.
Renew MD’s acne LED light treatments also include red light therapy, designed to reduce inflammation caused by acne.
