How Light Therapy Works To Treat Acne

Most people at one time or another have experienced some form of acne - for the lucky ones, this was in their teenage years, however for a lot of people acne has reared its ugly head in adulthood.

Lifestyle, diet and even pollution in the air are some factors that can contribute to acne, but essentially it is caused by a pesky bacteria called Propionibacterium or P. acnes for short. P. acnes live on our skin, most of the time they mind their own business and it’s only when our pores are blocked that they build up, causing blemishes and pimples. 

Fortunately, there is now a scientifically-backed, natural way to cure acne, and without the hefty clinicians bill.

Blue LED Light has powerful antibacterial properties, acting fast to kill these P. acnes without damaging the actual skin.

Here’s how it works: the light is placed either directly on or close to the skin for anywhere between 10 to 30 minutes a day. Infrared blue light then penetrates into the tissue to stimulate basic energy processes in a cell’s mitochondria. This speeds up the rate of cell reproduction. Red light stimulates collagen, and blue light kills the acne-causing P. acnes bacteria. The combination is skin that’s thicker, firm and looks more youthful.

Permaderm's clinical-grade products all emits the perfect Blue Light, so all you need to do is select right the device (feel free to chat with us), relax, and let the Blue Light return your glowing, acne-free complexion.
