Acne is one of the most common skin conditions in the world. So, the good news is that you are not the only one. Studies show that acne affects more than 85 percent of youngsters by the age of 24 and approximately 50 percent over 25. It is an upsetting condition as sometimes it can be widespread affecting much of your face. Acne can also appear on the chest, back and limbs, sometimes producing life-long scarring.
Acne results when the sebaceous glands in the skin start producing excess oil also known as sebum. The sebum combines with the gland wall cells and eventually blocks the skin pores. This leads to bacterial colonization. The body’s reaction to this causes inflammation that result in acne breakouts.
Propionibacterium acne is the most common bacteria responsible for skin inflammation and acne breakouts. These bacteria produce poryphyrins (natural chemicals) which are sensitive to light. The best way to reduce inflammation is to neutralise propionbacterium by stimulating the natural chemicals. The Omilux Blue Light therapy system works by targeting and destroying the active bacteria found in acne.
Approved by the Health Canada and FDA, Omilux Blue Light is the latest, safe and pain-free non-invasive therapy for treating moderate inflammatory acne. It is suitable for all age groups.
Omilux Blue utilizes PDT (Photo Dynamic Therapy) technology to treat acne eruption. The blue light stimulates the natural chemicals and effectively targets the bacteria that cause acne without heating or damaging the surrounding areas and tissues.
Simply put, the blue light therapy stimulates anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory activities in the deep layers of the skin, treating active acne successfully.
Omilux Blue delivers a blue light beam at a precise 408 nm wavelength. For proper power density with a uniform beam profile Omilux Blue uses a panel of about 1,700 focused diodes. The blue light when penetrates into the skin, creates a highly toxic environment for propionbacterium acne (P acne) which kills bacteria. And when there are no bacteria, the inflammation subsides and the acne clears out giving you a clean and a healthy skin.
Omilux Blue light offers several benefits. These include but are not limited to:
Best results kick in after 4 to 8 weeks time following the treatment. The blue light stimulates natural processes under the skin that continue healing the skin after the treatment.
It’s actually quite effective. On average, you can expect more than 70 percent of lesions to clear after the blue light therapy. For even better results, it is best to combine blue and red light therapy together. Consult our Nurse Andrea to learn more.
There are no side effects reported, not even redness or skin irritation typically because there is no heat involved. The blue light kills the bacteria without any thermal effect.
