Acne

Acne is a widespread skin condition that occurs most commonly in teenagers but often extends into adulthood. The cause of acne is multi-factorial and is felt to result from the interplay of clogged pores, increased oil production, inflammation and bacteria. There are a variety of medical and aesthetic procedures to accelerate acne clearing and lessen redness, hyperpigmentation and scarring resulting from acne. Our healthcare providers specialize in the treatment of acne and acne scarring. We offer many of the latest procedures and technologies for the management of acne and acne scarring.

Exposing the skin to different forms of low-level LED light, including red and blue, has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits.

  • Blue LED light therapy targets the sebaceous glands, which are also called oil glands. They’re located beneath the hair follicles. These glands help lubricate the skin, however the glands can become overactive, leading to oily skin and acne. Blue light therapy can target these oil glands and make them less active. In turn, you may see fewer acne breakouts. Blue light can also kill acne- causing bacteria beneath the skin, which can help treat severe acne pimples, including cysts and nodules
  • Red, or infrared, light is used for treating the epidermis, which is the outer layer of skin. When the light is applied to your skin, the epidermis absorbs it and then stimulates collagen proteins. In theory, more collagen means that your skin will look smoother and fuller, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Red LED light is also thought to reduce inflammation, while improving circulation, which can give you a healthier glow.
