Understanding Acne & how Blue LED Light Therapy can reduce inflammation
June is acne awareness month, a condition that affects so many of us and can occur at any stage of life.
Acne usually affects everyone at some point in their lifetime. It’s most common among teenagers and young adults undergoing hormonal changes, but acne can also occur during adulthood.
There are several types of acne, which include:
- Fungal Acne:
Occurs when there is a build up of yeast in the hair follicles. This type of acne can feel itchy.
- Cystic Acne:
Occurs deep in the skin. This type of acne is recognized by its pus-filled pimples and nodules.
- Hormonal Acne:
Affecting adults, this type of acne occurs when there is an overproduction of sebum.
- Nodular Acne:
Painful and tender, this type of acne is recognized by pimples on the skin surface.
Treatment for acne depends on the severity, however Blue LED Light Therapy is clinically shown to control acne without harsh chemicals or prescriptions and improves the skin’s appearance.
In this study, Blue LED Light Therapy was applied to the skin daily for six minutes for a period of eight weeks.
The study showed that daily self treatment using the device for mild-to-moderate inflammatory acne reduced the number of inflammatory acne lesions significantly.
