Blue LED light therapy acne treatment

Treatment of acne and pimples with Celluma blue LED light

Many people have a problem getting rid of pimples and acne in the period between adolescence and adult age. Acne, which is the cause of white pimples or blackheads, is a permanent medical state that affects the skin of the face, shoulders, back, and arms. Acne, blackheads, and pimples do not jeopardize physical health, but they affect an individual's psychological state and self-confidence.

Even though acne is normal, it very often creates unnecessary stress, especially when it breaks out more frequently in certain areas and we have an impression that we cannot get rid of it. Then LED light therapy is the most effective because it provides quick results in acne treatment.

What causes acne and where do pimples come from?

Acne is a quite common skin disease and 3 out of 4 people between the ages of 11 and 30 had acne at least once in their life.

Acne occurs when dead skin cells and sebum (naturally produced oil) clog tiny hair follicles or pores. When sebum production continues under the plug on the skin’s surface, it gets infected with P. acne bacteria, which causes swelling, redness, and inflammation.

Acne is manifested in many ways - white pimples, blackheads, and cysts are common types of acne, and each type can require a different treatment approach. Even though acne is commonly considered "a teenage problem", anyone can experience it at any age for different reasons.

Do only teenagers suffer from acne, blackheads, and pimples?

Acne is actually quite common in adults, too. Some people have acne in their 30s, 40s, and 50s, even if they never suffered from acne as teenagers.

There is no one straight answer about what causes acne in adults, but it is believed different factors are involved, such as hormones, genetics, diet, stress, make-up, bad skin care, and other medical conditions and problems.

What are common acne treatments?

If you suffer from acne, most probably you have tried different treatments. From face cleansers, creams, masks, and serums to even more extreme measures, such as prescription antibiotics, etc.

Dermatologists recommend that people with acne wash their face twice a day with a gentle, but effective face cleanser. They advise against touching the face, excessive peels, or applying heavy creams.

There is no unique approach to solving the problem of acne because if something works with one person, does not necessarily have to be effective with another person. Treating acne requires an individual approach and certain patients require multiple different treatments and recommendations.

The problem is that it can take months - or even years - to understand which treatment or combination of treatments will finally eliminate acne in adults and prevent them from coming back. Moreover, conventional chemical acne treatments can often dry out the skin and cause even bigger irritation, thereby making the acne and its side effects even worse.

Blue LED light therapy is a new trump card in skin care for people who have tried other acne treatments but without achieving the desired results.

How can blue LED light therapy eliminate acne faster?

LED light therapy works by killing the bacteria that cause acne at their source, deep under the skin’s surface.

Blue LED light therapy emits specific, clinically proven wavelengths to initiate a completely natural effect in the human tissue, by killing the bacteria that cause acne, reducing inflammation, and improving the tone, texture, and glow of the skin from the inside out.

However, not all light therapies are made equal. Blue and red LED light therapy is widely used as an effective option for treating inflammatory acne. One study has concluded that "blue light and red light can work synergically in the improvement of acne by combining the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action, making blue and/or red light phototherapy a safe and effective acne treatment."

Light therapy is a natural way of treating acne without using chemicals as an alternative to traditional medical solutions.

What makes the Celluma light therapy for acne different?

Celluma, which has been approved in the USA for acne treatment by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), achieves better and faster results in clearing the skin. Celluma is flexible and it fits closely to the treatment area for optimal effectiveness.

Due to Celluma’s unique flexible design and ability to fit closely to the treatment area to improve cell effectiveness on a microscopic level, skin cells can absorb even more light energy in a shorter period, accelerating the elimination of acne and the process of skin healing.

Celluma’s blue wavelengths kill the bacteria that cause acne, and at the same time, they reduce the inflammatory pimples and redness related to acne. Reduction of lesions and a general improvement in the look of the skin are often visible in just a few weeks. Of course, the results differ depending on the gravity of the condition.
