New Cutting-edge Technology Offers Affordable, Effective Acne Treatment

Light TherapyFew things cause adolescents, and many adults, as much daily embarrassment as acne does. That’s why Americans spend more than $100 million a year on over-the-counter acne products! Unfortunately, most don’t work leaving acne-sufferers frustrated and desperate to find something that does.

It’s this overwhelming need and demand for an effective, affordable acne treatment that informed and inspired the development of LIGHTWAVE Blue Light Therapy and Red Light Therapy. This pain-free, drug-free skin care alternative to treating acne is not only affordable, but natural too. LIGHTWAVE therapy is the healthy, holistic way to improve the condition of your skin.

The Science

According to the American Academy of Dermatology:

“Blue Light gets at the core of what causes acne eruptions: P. acnes, the bacteria responsible for causing acne inflammation, pumps out tiny molecules called porphyrins. When those porphyrins are exposed to certain wavelengths of light, they produce free radicals that kill the bacteria. Without P. acnes around to cause inflammation, the acne clears up.”

As for Red Light, the blood vessels in the skin absorb its energy. This stimulates the mitochondria in the cells and starts to convert the photon energy into biochemical energy known as ATP. It’s this boost in ATP that increases cellular activity and mitosis which diminishes inflammation and helps to restore normal cellular function.

The Treatment

There are 5 simple steps in LIGHTWAVE Blue Light Therapy and Red Light Therapy:

  1. The target area is cleansed with an acne cleanser
  2. You’re fitted with a pair of goggles to protect your eyes from light
  3. For 15 minutes, the target area is exposed to the Blue Light
  4. For another 15 minutes, the target area is exposed to the Red Light
  5. The target area is treated with a topical salicylic gel and sunscreen

As though its effectiveness and affordability aren’t incentive enough to try this LIGHTWAVE therapy, the warmth emitted from Blue and Red Light Therapy is described by most people as a relaxing, enjoyable experience.

Everyone’s acne treatment frequency varies depending on the severity of the acne, but it’s most often twice a week for a 4- to 6-week period. As for results, most see a dramatic improvement within 8 weeks time, often seeing a clearance in acne of up to 70 percent!
