Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy is a non-drug therapy for moderate acne and folliculitis. It is a unique blue light that kills the P. acnes bacteria in your skin. Blue light treatments are gentle and typically well-tolerated by patients.
Blue light treatments are simple. You just have to sit with your face close to the blue light for a short time, usually a 16-minute session about once or twice per week. The length of the treatment course varies depending on the severity of your acne and folliculitis; however, therapy can control your acne or clear it up for a certain period of time.
Blue light therapy is relatively safe. It is a gentle treatment with little discomfort and minimal adverse effects. Since it is not a drug, there are no drug-related side effects to worry about.
The blue light treatment is FDA cleared for light-alone treatment of moderate inflammatory acne and folliculitis. If you have moderate acne and are uncomfortable taking antibiotics, or are not satisfied with your current oral or topical antibiotics results, then book a free consultation with us to determine if blue light therapy is the right option for you!
