Read Time: 3 minutes

We all know there is always a new beauty hype going around, most of which don’t actually do anything but clutter our social media feeds. So it’s no surprise to our skin care specialists at AesthetiCare when clients ask if a LED acne treatment will truly work. 

The answer?

Yes, yes, and yes! LED therapy comes with a lot of benefits, including fighting breakouts, sun damage, and other signs of aging. We use the LIGHTWAVE light therapy system, which can target and clear away acne. Read on to learn exactly how LED therapy works to bring you clear, smooth skin. 

Introducing LIGHTWAVE: The Best LED Light Therapy in Kansas City

How does LIGHTWAVE treat acne?

LIGHTWAVE treats acne through the power of blue LED lights. Here are the basics behind the science. A bacterium called cutibacterium acnes (also known as P. acnes) is a main culprit behind inflammation and acne. When blue light hits the skin, it creates singlet oxygen, which then kills P. acnes. 

Okay, but are you sure it really brings results?

Researchers have asked the same thing. As a result there are multiple studies showing just how effective blue light is against acne. For example, in one study patients with mild-to-moderate acne underwent two 20-minute blue light LED therapy sessions per week for eight weeks. After the treatments, 90% of patients were satisfied with their results!  

The science speaks for itself. 

How to know if an LED acne treatment is right for you

If you suffer from mild-to-moderate acne, LED light therapy could definitely be for you! However, the only way to be absolutely sure is by visiting a professional.

Jessica is always keeping me up to date on new and exciting treatments. Although I have done multiple Intracel treatments in the past, this time she encouraged me to add on PRP. I highly recommend. Healing time was so fast!

Jessica did a great job always checking with me on how I was feeling. She was always concerned about how I was doing and doing the best job she could!
