What are the Clinical applications?
Repair Recover Restore
Age spots, freckles, melasma and hyperpigmented scars.
Which lights are useful?
Blue /Violet light reduces the sebaceous gland activity thereby reducing the oil (sebum) on which the Acne causing bacteria (Propionibacterium) thrive; it also helps kill the bacteria. These mechanisms reduce the incidence as well as the severity of Acne thereby reducing the psychosocial impact associated with this disease.
Red light increases the collagen production which is key to healing. It gives a fullness underneath the skin thereby reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Anti-inflammatory effects of Red light reduces scarring.
Combination therapy uses both Blue and Red lights to address Acne and the associated scarring. Light therapy can also be combined with other therapies such as Dermabrasion, Chemical peels and Oxygen Infusion treatments in order to achieve best results.
How long is the light therapy given?
