Blue LED Light Therapy
For clearer, brighter skin and fewer breakouts, Blue LED Light Therapy is an effective treatment in the battle against acne. Blue LED light penetrates beneath the skin to calm and regulate the sebaceous gland – (acne is caused when the sebaceous gland goes into overdrive).
How it works
Blue Light Acne Phototherapy promotes the creation of powerful oxygen molecules within the skin, which have the ability to quickly and effectively destroy the acne-causing bacteria lurking therein.
Unlike other acne treatments, it doesn’t result in dryness or discomfort as is often the case with topical medications, and does not cause any known side effects. The blue light doesn’t contain any harmful ultraviolet (UV) light that can damage skin either.
Here at the Royal Tunbridge Wells Skin & Laser Clinic, we use it in conjunction with other facial procedures to come up with the most effective treatment plan, tailored personally to your skin.
What can I expect?
On your visit to the clinic, the therapist will place you under the light with an attractive pair of goggles; you will lie underneath the light for between 15-25 minutes. Immediately following the Blue Light Therapy, skin appears calmer, clearer and less inflamed.
How many treatments will I need?
Just two 15 minute sessions per week for a period of four weeks using a low intensity blue light source with an output of between 405-420nm (nannometers) “produced a 60% reduction in acne in 80 % of patients” according to a recent report.
You can expect the results to last for between four to eight weeks.
