As anyone who has been battling with acne knows, it is a challenge. Acne not only affects the way that you look, but it also affects the way that you feel about yourself. There are very few things that are as discouraging as preparing for a big night or having to make a presentation in front of a group of people and looking at your face and seeing that it is covered with acne.
There are a lot of treatment options available for dealing with acne, but unfortunately, not all of these options produce the same results. Many topical creams, for example, only produce minimum results or no results at all.
Blue light technology has been shown to produce drastic results when used for acne treatment. It works by attacking the acne-causing bacteria that lead to inflammation. The acne-causing bacteria are very sensitive to blue light. They die when they come into contact with the blue light. Blue light therapy, when combined with the heat that comes from infrared treatment, causes the oil glands that lead to acne to reduce in size. Eventually, the acne disappears from the treated area.
Why is blue light acne treatment so effective? Once the bacteria are gone, inflammation disappears. The redness that makes pimples unsightly goes away. Little by little, your skin goes from being blotchy to being attractive again.
Blue light acne treatment works best on patients who have red pimples. These are referred to as inflammatory acne. When used on the right patients, blue light treatment not only removes red pimples, but it can also be used on moderate and severe acne scarring.
The power of this blue light therapy is its ability to kill the bacteria inside the follicles. This has a powerful effect on the appearance of your skin. There are a lot of individuals who have fought long and hard to get over their acne, who have not been able to accomplish this goal using traditional methods and are then surprised to see how quickly the blue light therapy produces results.
In order to get the most out of blue light therapy, you need to be in relatively good health. The healthier you are, the quicker your skin will react to the acne treatment, and the clearer your skin will become. It is also good to monitor the skin care products you use and the makeup you use because all of these things will have an impact on how well the treatment works.
One of the nice things about getting the blue light therapy done under the watchful eye of a dermatologist is that they are going to be able to monitor the improvements in your skin, and they’re going to be able to help you make adjustments in your skin care routine to guarantee that these improvements last the long haul.
