Blue light is one of a range of treatment options we offer for acne, an inflammatory condition that is often difficult to treat and settle.
Blue light is particularly effective for those sufferers wanting quick results or who have limited time for treatment. It uses blue wavelength pulsed light to kill the bacteria (Propionibacterium) that sit on or under the skin and causes the acne, while at the same time reducing the function of the sebaceous gland, which produces sebum, an oily substance that can block hair follicles and cause in blackheads and spots to form.
Blue light’s ability to kill off bacteria at different depths within the skin, means that it can produce excellent results in a short time, particularly when the acne is fairly mild.
Depending on your individual condition we may recommend blue light in combination with another treatment. Our expertise in tailoring a wide range of acne treatments to your individual skin condition means that we can almost always provide an effective treatment solution to address your skins specific need.
