How Does The "ACNE" Light Therapy System Treat Acne?
The Acne Light Therapy system uses very Intense Blue (470nm ) and Red (630nm) Light to kill the bacteria which causes acne. Acne results from infection by the bacteria P. Acnes ( Propionibacterium Acnes) and acne vulgarls. Every skin pore on our body from which hair grows has a Sebaceous gland which produces oil (Sebum) in order to Lubricate our skin. When the pore becomes plugged with dirt oil (Sebum) or dead skin, the bacteria begin to proliferate and cause an infection from within the skin
Stimulation with intense Red ( 630nm - 650nm ) light leads to tissue repair and regeneration. Stimulation with red light causes the release of cytokines in the skin which stimulate fibroblast proliferation and the production of growth factors, thus influencing the inflammatory process and leading to disappearance of the acne.
The bacterial infection causes inflamation which is what we see as Acne. P.Acnes bacteria contain porphyrins, which can be excited by Blue ( 420nm - 470nm ) light.
When the porphyrins are excited by the intense blue light, they become converted to a chemical which is deadly to the P.Acnes bacteria. This leads to the death of the Bacteria.
