BBL Blue Light for Acne : Advanced, Effective and Perfect for sensitive skins.

WHAT IS ACNE?

Acne vulgaris (or acne) is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the sebaceous gland present in the skin. Acne is a common term for comedones and milia (blackheads and whiteheads), papules (pinheads), pustules (pimples) and nodules. Large nodules are sometimes called “cysts” or “boils”, and the term nodulocystic is used to describe severe cases of inflammatory acne. Cystic acne affects deeper skin tissue than does common acne and typically appears on the buttocks, groin, armpit areas, chest, neck and back. Sometimes acne cysts may develop on the face. Scarring may develop if the lesions are not adequately or appropriately treated. In addition, there is a significant negative psychological effect on patients and severe acne may seriously affect the self-esteem and quality of life.

Does Acne occur only in teenagers?
Acne is more common in the age group of 13 – 30 years but it may occur or persist even beyond this age limit. Males are more frequently affected than females.

What is BBL Blue Light Treatment for Acne? (BBL acne phototherapy)

The Sciton® BBL Blue Light (420nm) technology is one of the most effective acne therapies available today. Utilizing the short wavelengths in the blue-light spectrum, this treatment painlessly destroys the propionibacterium acnes bacteria on the skin surface and in the sebaceous glands, killing the bacteria that cause Acne. It diminishes active breakouts, allows faster healing of the skin and prevents future breakouts.


Does it work on all types of acne?
BBL Acne Phototherapy works on mild to severe inflammatory acne and is ideal for treating the redness associated with mild to moderate acne and cystic acne.

How many treatments are required?

Results are seen within three to four weeks. A typical treatment regimen consists of a series of treatments delivered twice a week over a 4-week period, or until the breakouts are under control. Each treatment takes about 10-15 minutes. Our doctors will recommend the correct duration and timing of your treatments based on your skin’s condition.

As a guide, 3 treatments can potentially result in a 70% improvement in acne, and by 6 treatments a 90% improvement can be achieved.

How does Blue Light Treatment differ from other acne treatments?

The Sciton® BBL Blue Light (420nm) technology is one of the most effective acne therapies available today. In many cases, utilizing this treatment method can help our patients avoid the need for aggressive oral medications or long-term antibiotics.

BBL Blue Light treatments are gentle enough for the treatment of Acne in patients with sensitive skin and atopic dermatitis. It is a safe and effective solution for patients who are unable to tolerate harsh drying topical products or procedures, or who are too sensitive for aggressive laser treatments, as well as patients who are intolerant to oral medications.

BBL Blue Light treatments can be further enhanced by combination with specially selected light chemical peels, suitable patients.

” BBL Blue Light Acne Treatments are effective yet gentle enough even for sensitive skins and patients with concurrent Eczema and Atopic Dermatitis.” (Dr. Jonathan Y. Lee)
