Acne is an inconvenient and embarrassing skin condition that can disrupt your daily life. While it may not necessarily be painful, it can leave you with a reddened appearance that makes you look feverish or like you are blushing. Even more, you cannot cover up the pimples with cosmetics. When you want a safe and permanent way to get rid of your acne, you may consider undergoing Blu-Light treatment at our office.
What is Blu-Light Treatment?
Blu-Light treatment combines the use of special medications with blue light. When the light comes into contact with the medications, it causes a special reaction that targets the issues that cause acne.
Blu-Light Treatment Benefits
Blu-Light treatment offers numerous benefits that make it appealing to people who want to avoid invasive measures of acne treatment. The primary advantages of this treatment include:
- Safe and fast
- No long-term side effects when performed properly
- Done on an outpatient basis
- Can be repeated as often as necessary with few, if any, side effects
- Increasingly available to people throughout the United States
Blu-Light treatment does not demand that you spend days or weeks recovering from the procedure like you would if you went through more invasive types of treatments. You can get back to your normal routine quickly without the fear of your skin being riddled with acne.
Additional Considerations Regarding Blu-Light Treatment
As innovative and convenient as Blu-Light treatment is, it does have some limitations. This is part of the reason why it’s so important to schedule a consultation rather than deciding on your own whether or not the treatment is right for you. During your consultation, we can tell you important details about the procedure. For instance, you will probably need a series of treatment sessions in order to effectively treat your acne.
Blu-Light treatment for acne can also leave people sensitive to light for some time after the procedure. You may need to avoid sunlight and bright light for a set amount of time. It is important to be aware of this before undergoing treatment.
