The Tria Blue Light Device is a unique treatment that allows you to take some of the technology available at the Clear Clinic directly into your own home. Dr. Schweiger notes that, “Blue LED light has been proven to kill the p. acnes bacteria that causes acne. We often recommend blue LED light treatments for our patients in the office; it is particularly effective when combined with other treatments, such as Photodynamic Therapy. For patients who are unable to visit the office, or for those who want to do a little extra in between visits, at-home blue LED light devices can help reduce the acne causing bacteria significantly.”
The Tria Blue Light Device is one of the leading blue LED light devices on the market. It is safe for home use and requires only a few minutes of treatment each day. Blue LED light has very few side effects and can safely be using by patients taking most acne medications and using topical acne treatments. In studies performed by Tria, a 70% reduction of acne was seen after just 2 weeks of using the Tria Blue Light Device.
Most patients using the Tria Blue Light Device apply it to the acne prone areas of their skin for a few minutes in the morning and a few minutes in the evening. However, the instructions are flexible, and treatments can be performed whenever is most convenient for you (some of our patients prefer one longer session once a day.) There is no ‘downtime’ after using the Tria Blue Light Device; it does not leave your skin red or inflamed after use.
