How does Bluelight destroy acne?

Blue Light therapeutic light uses the innovative Acne PhotoClearing™ - APC™ technology to precisely target and destroy surface and ductal propionibacterium acnes (p.acnes) quickly and easily. Its intense 420mm wavelength light penetrates deeply enough into the tissue to reach the target p. acnes and trigger the proliferation of endogenic porphyrins to attack and eliminate the p. acnes bacteria.

What is the treatment like?

The procedure is noninvasive and pain free, with full-face treatments taking only 25 minutes. Patients simply lie on a comfortable bed while the light is applied to the affected area; they can even listen to music while being treated. Once the treatment session is over, patients can return to their daily routine. This means no downtime or inconvenience, especially important factors for active teens and young adults.

What kind of results can I expect?

Bluelight effectively clears most inflammatory acne in a few visits. There are virtually no side effects, no downtime and no exposure to antibiotics using the APC™ technology.
