Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your tiny hair follicles in your skin become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. This causes bacteria to increase and irritate the skin. It often causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples, and usually appears on the face. However, they can develop on the arms, neck, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders.
Acne is most common among teenagers, usually starting in the early teen years. Although, it affects people of all age.

Light Therapy - It Works!
When blue light is shone on the skin, it penetrates through various skin layers and may help kill acne-causing bacteria known as Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), or reduce inflammation or excess sebum (skin oil) production associated with acne. The P acnes bacteria causes inflammation and breakouts on the skin surface.
P acnes is sensitive to blue light and can in fact, be reduced with blue light therapy. Combined with proper cleansing and treatment regimens, the blue light offers a safe alternative to antibiotics and harsh drying topicals.
