Acne Blue Light Therapy - Articles Surfing

Acne Blue Light Therapy has become a popular trend in recent years. The research and studies to date have shown that it can be successful to treat acne with blue light therapy and this conclusion opened up another avenue for patients who continue to suffer from acne after trying all other options or patients who cannot for one reason or another use certain treatments.

The purpose of the acne blue light therapy is to get rid of the cause acne eruptions. It does this by destroying the bacteria that causes acne in the first place, P. acnes. P. acnes causes the inflammation of the skin by emitting molecules known as porphyrins.

Studies show that if these porphyrin molecules are put under a particular wavelength of blue light, they let loose free radicals which end up harming the bacteria causing the acne clears to clear up eventually.

The light therapy is a better process than other acne reducing procedures such as medication. This is because it is completely natural, it is non invasive and the procedure has very little side affects. People of ages and various skin types can use it daily without any problems.

The procedure usually takes place in a total of eight sessions, lasting for fifteen minutes each. They go on for about a month. The side affects are minimal. A person may suffer from swelling in the treated areas. The skin might be dry and there may be skin pigment changes.

Because of these reasons, this treatment has been approved by many professionals for patients with inflammatory acne lesions and not recommended for those who suffer from nodulocystic acne.

The acne light therapy of today can be seen advertised on TV, the internet and other forms of media throughout the world. Unlike previous light therapy methods to treat acne, FDA approved Acne Blue light products currently do not use UV light.
