While acne is often only a temporary problem for adolescents, many of us experience chronic acne long into adulthood, and finding an effective treatment for it can sometimes prove elusive. The good news is, a state-of-the-art procedure called Omnilux® Red and Blue Light Therapy offers a way to significantly reduce the appearance of acne in a non-surgical, virtually painless treatment. The medical team at the Dermatology & Laser Center can help you diminish signs of acne and feel great about the look of your skin.
What are the benefits of Omnilux® Red and Blue Light Therapy?
Omnilux® Red and Blue Light Therapy is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and works to kill the bacteria which causes acne in the skin. This treatment is a painless, light-based procedure designed to decrease inflammation, oil production, and pore size for patients with mild to moderate acne. The Omnilux® Red and Blue Light technology can also stimulate cell growth, ultimately leading to smoother, healthier-looking skin in areas affected by acne. Plus, Omnilux® Red and Blue Light Therapy can work for all skin types.
How does the treatment work?
Chemicals produced by acne-causing bacteria can be sensitive to light. The Omnilux® Red and Blue Light Therapy uses different kinds of light to kill the bacteria and rejuvenate the skin. The blue light focuses on destroying the bacteria, while the red light emits anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties onto the skin, helping it to heal itself. The lights will be shone over the affected areas of skin, and there are no needles or surgical incisions involved. Omnilux® Red and Blue Light Therapy is typically an eight-session treatment process, using the lights in combination or separately, over a period of four weeks. This multi-stage treatment process typically yields the best results.
Results of Omnilux® Red and Blue Light Therapy
Results from Omnilux® Red and Blue Light Therapy often last for at least six months, and many patients can keep the effects going for much longer with just one or two treatments each year after your initial procedure. Most patients experience a significant reduction in the appearance of acne in the treated areas, along with a healthier appearance to the skin.
