LIGHT THERAPY FOR ACNE IN GRETNA
MOD Dermatology is proud to offer our clients this popular treatment for acne and acne scarring. Not only is it an amazing acne treatment, but light therapy can also increase collagen production, promote an even skin tone, and it offers other anti-aging benefits.
WHAT IS LIGHT THERAPY?
Light therapy uses various wavelengths of blue and red light to treat acne and other skin issues. Blue light penetrates at a depth in the skin to kill bad bacteria, while red light goes deeper to help increase collagen production and decrease inflammation, in turn giving you smoother, even-toned skin.
WHAT CAUSES ACNE AND HOW DOES LIGHT THERAPY WORK TO FIGHT IT?
Acne is caused when your hair follicles become clogged by dead skin cells and oils. Have you ever wondered why you tend to have less acne during the summer? The UV rays from the sun kill acne-causing bacteria on your skin. While this might seem great, UV rays can be harmful to the skin, causing premature aging and even skin cancer. Professional light therapy uses specific red and blue wavelengths of light to get rid of acne and acne scars safely, without the harmful effects of UV rays. MOD Dermatology offers acne scar treatment and removal services through light therapy as well.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Light therapy typically works best in conjunction with other acne treatment methods. Our certified dermatologists will start with a consultation, and then design a treatment plan tailored specifically for your skin. For light therapy, each session lasts roughly 15 to 30 minutes. The number of sessions needed will depend on your skin goals and the severity of your acne.
