What Causes Acne?
Acne develops when an abundance of dead skin cells and a naturally-produced oil called sebum plug tiny hair follicles, or pores. As sebum production continues to build under the plug in the skin’s surface, it becomes infected with P. acne bacteria, causing swelling, redness, and inflammation.
Acne presents itself in many ways - whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, and cysts are all common forms of acne, and each type can require a different approach for treatment. Although acne is usually an issue with young teens, it can occur to any person at any age for many reasons.
What are Common Acne Treatments?
If you suffer from acne, it’s more than likely you’ve tried multiple ways to combat different treatments or even medications.
We know that dermatologists recommend people with acne wash their face twice daily with a gentle yet effective cleanser. Touching your face, over-exfoliating, and applying heavy creams are also serious no-no’s. Beyond that, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to effectively treat acne, and something that works for one person might not work for another. For some, it can take months -- or years -- to figure out which treatment, or combination of treatments, will successfully treat adult acne and keep it from coming back.
How can Blue Light Therapy Eliminate Acne Faster?
LED light therapy works by killing acne-causing bacteria at the source, deep beneath the skin’s surface. If you are looking for a more natural, chemical-free alternative to traditional medical solutions, Celluma Led Light Therapy is a great place to start!. Blue LED light therapy emits specific, clinically-proven wavelengths of light to trigger an all-natural effect in human tissue, killing acne-causing bacteria, decreasing inflammation and improving skin tone, texture, and clarity from the inside out. However, not all light therapy is created equal.
Because of Celluma’s unique flexibility, it can conform to the treatment area to improve cellular performance on a microscopic level, skin cells are able to absorb even more light energy in less time, speeding up the acne elimination and skin healing process. Because of the ability to place the device close to the skin, Celluma outperforms many even more expensive devices that cannot mold closely to the treatment area.
Celluma’s blue wavelengths kill the bacteria that cause breakouts while reducing the inflammation, pimples, and redness associated with acne. A reduction in lesions and an overall improvement in skin appearance is often seen in only a matter of weeks. Of course, outcomes vary depending on the severity of the condition and compliance to recommended protocols.
Celluma is FDA cleared for the treatment of acne and is one of the few professional-grade devices also cleared for home use. Talk with Joe and Liz about how you can order your own unit to use at home!
