Fight the Acne BLUES

May 16, 2019 - By Dr. Martin Kassir

Blue LED can be an effective treatment for certain types of acne. The blue light LED works by penetrating deep into the skin where it stimulates P-acne porphyrins (compounds found in acne-causing bacteria). Through repeated stimulation over the course of a few days, free radicals are generated that ultimately cause the P-acne bacteria to destroy itself. LED treatment takes approximately 20-30 minutes with minimal down time. It may be repeated multiple times in a week, or as many as your condition may require. LED is routinely combined with other in-office procedures to enhance results and minimize downtime.  Call our Dallas office to see how blue LED can minimize your acne.
