Blue Light therapy
Blue light therapy works on acne inflicted skin by killing bacteria on the surface of the skin. How does killing bacteria help with acne? Well, bacteria are actually one of the major causes of acne. This, along with the excess sebum that acne prone skin produces, is what creates acne pustules or lesions on the skin. The excess sebum essentially traps the available bacteria on the skin, which causes an erupted infection on the surface of the skin.Basically, by taking bacteria out of the equation, blue light therapy helps those with acne by clearing the skin of these inflammation-promoting organisms. This type of therapy has been a very successful treatment method for many with the acne skin condition when combined with the proper cleansing and treatment regimens. It is considered very safe, and the best part about it is that you do not need to take any synthetic drugs.
