How Effective is Blue Light Therapy for Acne?

If you have acne, then you know just how tough – even heartbreaking – it can be to try out acne treatments that promise results but fail to deliver.

But when it comes to blue light therapy for acne, you’ll break that cycle – because you’ll see noticeable results after just a few treatments.

Let’s take a closer look at how effective blue light therapy for acne can be, as well as other treatments that can help clear away chronic breakouts.

Blue Light Therapy for Acne Breakouts

LightStim for acne (an acne bacteria-killing blue light) is a treatment that targets current acne breakouts, while killing the bacteria that could cause breakouts in the future. It’s a pain-free, powerful treatment that can create significant clearance; in fact,patients can expect to see 82% clearance rate after 12 weeks of regular treatments!

That means you could have clear skin again in just a few months!

Here’s how it LightStim works:

  • LightStim’s blue light treatments kill acne-causing bacteria within the skin. Applied in eight treatments over a four week period, most patients see a dramatic decrease in the number and severity of acne blemishes and lesions; some report significant improvements after only two or three sessions.
  • LightStim’s red light begins an immediate process of inflammation reduction, meaning your skin will see improvement in redness and flushing.

You’re a good candidate for LightStim treatments if you have chronic acne and you’re willing to commit to a treatment regimen to see your best results. Total Dermatology is committed to helping you experience the best skin of your life which is why they also offer an at-home blue light therapy machine.
