Acne light treatments is a form of low-level laser therapy and has been used for the treatment of mild acne and very mild early acne scars. This treatment delivers medically measured doses of LED light to the skin, and target both bacteria and early scarring.
Blue light works best to temporarily destroy bacteria, whist red light penetrates to the deeper layers of the skin to help remodel collagen. Low-level laser phototherapy is only effective if acne scars are mild, red, and if treatment is initiated early.
Dermatologists at the Acne Specialist Clinics use several forms of phototherapy, including Blue light, Red light, Photodynamic therapy and BBL Blue Filtered light. Phototherapy is a safe method of treating acne in pregnancy or in women who are breastfeeding. We do not advocate this as a sole method of acne treatment as it only produces a temporary reduction in acne lesions.
