Some patients do notice an improvement in their acne with light. The effects are usually short lived, and is due to the effects of UV light (especially the blue wavelengths and red wavelengths).
Light can temporarily destroy the bacteria associated with acne lesions. This forms the basis behind OMNILUX Blue and Red Light Phototherapy for acne.
Phototherapy for acne should always be combined with medical therapy to address the underlying cause of acne.
Medically prescribed phototherapy is safe, however we don’t endorse solarium use as this form of treatment can be associated with skin cancer and premature wrinkling.
