What is Acne?
Acne is often attributed to eating too much chocolate, but that’s a myth. It’s caused by a specific species of bacteria that often lives on the face. These bacteria can cause your skin’s hair follicles, sebaceous glands, and oil glands to become blocked. This creates an infection that causes the familiar “zits” on your skin. While many acne outbreaks go away with time, severe cases can lead to permanent scarring on the face. Serious outbreaks often require more serious measures to remove the acne.
What is Broadband Light Therapy?
Broadband light therapy is a treatment that uses infrared light energy to remove acne. The wavelengths used in this therapy heat your skin to a carefully controlled level, using advanced technology to heat your skin only as far down as needed to treat your acne and no further. It kills acne bacteria and helps to remodel the collagen in your skin, as well as reduce the activity of overenthusiastic sebaceous glands. For even better results, you might want to combine this treatment with skin resurfacing that generates new collagen for a smoother and softer face.
How Long Is the Recovery?
Broadband laser light treatment is designed to get you back to work, school, or play as soon as possible. After a treatment, the most usual side effects will be some reddening or flushing of the face, and potential darkening of the skin that will peel off within less than two weeks. You might also experience mild bruising that fades quickly, usually within ten days. You may need to avoid medications such as aspirin, strenuous exercise that forces blood to the skin, or alcohol intake for just a few days. You should notice permanent results within a matter of weeks, with smoother skin, fewer wrinkles, more even pigmentation, and no more acne!
