Photodynamic Therapy (Blue Light)

Photodynamic therapy (PDT), commonly known as Blue light therapy, uses non-UV light to eliminate acne-causing bacteria deep within the skin. The result: clear, smooth skin with fewer blemishes, clogged pores, pimples and acne breakouts.

What is blue light therapy?
Dermatologists have used blue light in their offices since 2002 to clear acne breakouts quickly and effectively by eliminating the bacteria that cause them. Blue light treatment is a non-UV light therapy, which is gentle on skin and does not cause long-term harmful health effects.

How does Blue Light work?
Blue Light treats the very source of acne—bacteria (P. acnes) living in the pores. When blue light strikes the acne bacteria cells it kills them, without affecting the surrounding tissue. And when you eliminate acne-causing bacteria, you eliminate clogged pores, blemishes, pimples and breakouts to reveal clearer, smoother, healthier skin.
