ABOUT BLUE LIGHT FOR ACNE
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.

When the hair follicles become clogged with dead skin cells from oily skin, the skin may breakout in bumps and other irregularities. These breakouts will usually consist of pimples, blackheads and whiteheads.
- Oily Skin
Oily skin occurs when sebaceous glands produce more oil that is needed. The skin will normally look greasy and produce acne breakouts on the forehead, chin and chest.
Reduction in blackheads – Any treatment that targets blackheads, eliminates them and prevents the formation of more. Blackheads are a result of acne, which happens when hair follicles become clogged with dead skin cells from oily skin.
As a result of oily skin and hair follicles becoming clogged, whiteheads can form on the skin. Having a treatment that helps to unclog pores and decrease oil should result in a reduction in whiteheads.
- Killing Bacteria
Any treatment or procedure that eliminates the acnes bacteria, also known as acne. The acnes bacteria develops into pimples, blackheads and whiteheads when the hair follicle becomes clogged from oily skin and dead skin cells.
LEARN MORE ABOUT BLUE LIGHT ACNE THERAPY
Although there are numerous skin conditions that are characterized by visible blemishes and imperfections, acne is the most common among teenagers and young adults. Unfortunately, the eruption of pimples, blackheads, cysts, oily skin and whiteheads often leave a compilation of red marks, dark spots and craters after a breakout has subsided. The effects on the appearance are distressing and can be emotionally debilitating, reducing some to anxiety and depression.
Acne sometimes treated with oral or topical antibiotics and astringents, but for those who have developed a resistance to these medications, a more aggressive, but non-invasive approach, can be a better solution. At Skin & Body Refinery, we use modern techniques to effectively prevent flare-ups from reoccurring. We also minimize and possibly permanently remove the scarring caused by severe outbreaks by going deep into the skin’s surface to correct the problem, something topical medications are unable to do. For this, we have a few procedures that we perform that involves skin resurfacing. Before having the acne treated, it’s important to understand what acne is, the causes, and how the procedures we perform correct the problem of breakouts and scarring afterward.
