Light therapy provides a gentler way to target acne effectively while improving the overall condition of the skin. Blue and Red Lights are combined in our treatment package to better address the causes and effects of acne. Blue Light bears healing properties and sanitizes the skin while Red Light increases cellular turnover, which promotes circulation and healing.
The lights stimulate the skin’s natural processes that go on after the treatments have stopped. On average you can expect 70-80% decrease in acne lesions, with optimum results between 4 and 8 weeks after the package ends. For most patients, the appearance of acne is gone for 6 months, but 2 to 4 follow up treatments are typically necessary every few months. Often the most effective acne treatments combine multiple technology disciplines including microdermabrasion and chemical peels along with home care programs.
The package we are introducing combines 8 light treatments done in a 4 week period (2 treatments per week) and 2 chemical peels (1 done at the beginning of the package and 1 at the end).
