LIGHT THERAPY FOR ACNE TREATMENT IN BELLEVUE
Also known as phototherapy, light therapy provides our clients with an acne treatment that combats active acne, acne scarring and uneven skin texture. MOD Dermatology is excited to provide this effective and highly tested skin treatment as a service to restore your beautiful skin.
WHAT IS LIGHT THERAPY?
Light therapy is a type of non-invasive procedure that utilizes red or blue wavelengths of light to kill acne-causing bacteria on the skin. Each specific wavelength of light reaches a certain depth in the skin and helps with a variety of skin issues. Blue light penetrates at a shorter depth than red light. Blue light primarily helps with decreasing acne itself. Red light therapy encourages increased collagen production, and fights acne scarring and inflammation.
WHAT CAUSES ACNE AND HOW DOES LIGHT THERAPY WORK TO FIGHT IT?
Acne is caused when an oily substance known as sebum, along with dead skin cells, plugs your hair follicles. If you have ever wondered why your skin seems to get clearer in the summertime, this is because the UV rays can clear acne breakouts. However, UV rays are also harmful to the skin and can cause premature aging and even skin cancer. At MOD Dermatology we use professional light therapy to treat acne by using blue and red wavelengths of light which are safe for your skin while still highly effective.
