Acne is the most infuriating chronic dermatological condition. It can make your otherwise beautiful skin look blotchy, leave scars, and make you uncomfortable in your skin.
Blue light treatments may offer a stable, long-term solution to eliminating acne from your skin. The best parts of this treatment are that it’s non-invasive, tends to clear up your complexion, and doesn’t have unfriendly side effects.
How Do Blue Light Treatments Work?
Color represents the frequency of light. Certain light waves can pass through the upper layers of the skin, which in turn allows them to reach further without causing damage to the outer layers of your skin.
The premise behind blue light treatments is that they utilize a special wavelength of light that leaves the epidermis layers of your skin intact. They pass through to the dermis layer to see out bacteria that may have taken residence in the porous areas of your skin.
When it reaches that bacteria, the blue light converts into thermal energy. Bacteria dislike this process, as it tends to cause them to die or be unable to reproduce.
This allows your body to have the natural advantage it needs to begin naturally removing the cause of acne from your skin.
Do Blue Light Treatments Help with Acne Irritation?
If you currently experience pain or irritation from acne outbreaks, then you may decide to try blue light treatments. The nature of how this treatment works can allow for many of the symptoms of acne outbreaks to subside without making outbreaks worse.
Blue light treatments can also offer a certain degree of immediate relief from irritation.
What Other Benefits Can Blue Light Treatments Bring?
Due to the way blue light penetrates the skin, it can have a marked effect on overall skin clarity. It can help break apart dirt and other particles trapped in pores. It can even help your body with starting the process of waste removal.
Many people who undergo blue light treatments notice that their skin is clearer, shinier and healthier overall.
Another benefit is the ability for blue light treatments to be combined with other treatments. Very light chemical peels may be combined to help blue lights penetrate slightly deeper while encouraging blood flow to problematic areas.
