Importance of Light Based Therapy in Acne Treatments

Date :24-Aug-2022

Acne is a common skin problem that can affect anyone at some stage in their life. It can range from occasional occurrences to a constant struggle. At the same time as there are a variety of approaches to resolve acne, light-based therapy is one of the best and most effective acne treatments that actually work. Our expert dermatologists at Vitals Skin and Hair Clinic, commonly treat acne issues with light therapy.

Importance of Light Based Therapy in Acne Treatments

Acne forms in pores. Each pore contains an oil-producing gland. The oil keeps your skin healthy. However on occasion the oil, dirt, and dead skin cells can get trapped interior pores and clog them up as acne. One way to kill bacteria and clear up acne is with light. The bacteria in your skin are sensitive to certain types of light. While you shine those lighting on your skin, toxic substances form and kill the bacteria.

There are two main kinds of visible light therapy used in clinical settings, blue and red light. These both contain distant skin benefits such as improving acne, but each has differences according to how they function.

The 2 Kinds of Light Therapy Are:

  • Blue Light Therapy – It is a good option for acne treatments because of its ability to target acne causing bacteria and skin-damaging inflammation. When acne-causing bacteria and inflammation are disrupted in the skin, you are less likely to have acne flare-ups. It’s also considered one of the best treatments for acne scars. Blue light destroys the bacteria that causes acne inflammation, and it prevents the formation of new acne.

  • Red Light Therapy – It can be used to treat acne that’s caused by inflammation, and is also helpful for acne lesions that are on the forehead or in the neck. Visible light devices that kill bacteria on the skin have been used by our expertise dermatologist at Vitals Skin and Hair Clinic as an alternative acne treatment.

Advantages of Light Therapy

Visible light therapy is safe and non-invasive. The light therapy does not burn or damage the surrounding skin, but it does penetrate the skin and increase blood flow. Visible light therapy is also relatively easy to administer.
