Do At-Home Blue Lights Work?

Do At-Home Blue Lights Work?

Posted in Acne At Home Treatments by . | Leave a Comment
Blue Light has been a staple of acne treatment for many years.  Blue (LED) Light not only kills the p. acnes bacteria that causes acne, but  can reduce inflammation on the skin.  At the Clear Clinic, we often combine blue light with a medication called aminolevulinic acid, which is activated by the blue light to decrease sebum production in addition to killing the p. acne bacteria. Most patients visit the Clear Clinic once a week for their blue light treatments, but they often inquire about what they can do at home.  Between office visits and blue light treatments, nearly all of our patients use prescription medications, but not everyone knows how effective the at-home version of their favorite in-office treatment can be. So, do at-home blue lights work?  Dr. Schweiger explains that, "The answer is yes.  We find that at-home blue light treatments can boost the efficacy of  in-office light treatments when used between visits or provide an effective alternative for in-office light treatments for patients who can't make it into the office regularly.  Studies completed on the Tria Blue Light Device showed a 70% acne reduction in just two weeks." The Tria and the Tanda blue light devices are the most commonly used blue light devices.  They have small differences (size, length of use, shape), but they both have excellent studies to prove the effectiveness of at-home blue light devices.  Dr. Schweiger recommends that patients with acne use a blue light device daily.  Both the Tria and Tanda blue light devices are available at the Clear Clinic in NYC.
