Acne can be caused by clogged pores from skin cells that do not shed properly. Whiteheads, blackheads, and pimples can form when oil and bacteria become trapped inside the sebaceous glands.

Infrared and RF energies reduce the sebaceous gland activity while the blue light destroys the acne. These treatments will significantly reduce the severity of current and future breakouts.

Acne is not exclusive to teenagers. Many young adults, people in their 20’s and 30’s have trouble with acne that is hard to control. Although there are many types of acne, the most common is called acne vulgaris. Beneath the surface of your skin lie hundreds of tiny glands called sebaceous glands. Their function is to collect and excrete the oily substance called sebum, to keep the skin healthy. When the pathway for the sebum to escape becomes clogged and a bacterium called p. acnes grows inside, the area swells up and forms a pimple on the skin.
Blue Light Laser Treatment
There are many treatments for moderate acne including creams, washes, and medications – both mild and strong. Sometimes, for various reasons, these medications or antibiotics aren’t right for you but your acne may not be responding to the other topical treatments.
There is now a treatment available that doesn’t depend on medication. The radio frequency (RF) - enables highly selective targeting of the sebaceous glands that secrete oil and the bacteria that causes acne. Infrared and RF energies reduce the sebaceous gland activity while blue light destroys acne thereby significantly reducing the severity of current and future breakouts. This non-invasive modality requires 2 treatments per week for 4 weeks. After some weeks, your acne is controlled by the blue light and will clear it up for a very long period of time.
Blue Light Laser and Levulan Kerastick
A type of photodynamic therapy or PDT, this treatment is a combination of blue light with Levulan – a topical aminolevulinic acid HCl. First the skin is cleaned off with an acetone to remove the dirt and dead skin, and then the topical Levulan is applied. Levulan is taken up by the bacteria in the oil glands and converted into a substance that is sensitive to light. Once absorbed by the blue light from the laser, this bacteria is destroyed. Using the Levulan Kerastick will expedite the blue light laser treatment for acne, thus reducing the number of sessions needed.
