Clearing Skin With Acne Lights

Find out how to use acne lights to clear your skin

There are many different treatments for acne, but acne lights are one of the lesser well known methods used to treat this common skin condition. Light therapy was established in the medical, dental and sports medicine field as a method for healing people non invasively. It is used to treat a variety of injuries and research conducted by the British Dermatology Association found that light therapy does improve acne in mild to moderate cases. Acne lights are free of UV rays, which can be harmful to the skin, and work by targeting propionibacterium, a bacteria that is associated with acne. You can purchase an acne light on your own or you can also go to a dermatologist that offers this special skin treatment.

A typical acne light session lasts approximately fifteen minutes and can be done daily. You may noticed your skin getting worse after a few sessions simply because the acne lights are pulling the bacteria from under the skin and drawing them towards the surface of your skin, but after continued use your skin will experience a noticeable improvement. The acne light therapy will also make your skin less oily and there is no need to use any other creams or products while undergoing this treatment.
