Acne can be a problem at any age, and adult-onset acne has many possible causes, from hormones to oily skin. Luckily, you have a solution in blue light therapy. Here are some ways this non-invasive treatment can help you.

It Kills Bacteria

Did you know that bacteria is one of the main culprits of acne? Too much bacteria on your skin can cause acne. Blue light therapy helps kill the bad bacteria on your skin that you may not be able to remove with a standard face wash.

Reduce Inflammation

When you’re dealing with severe acne, your skin can become inflamed, red, and sore. Blue light therapy works by penetrating areas on or underneath the skin with its noninvasive light, addressing your skin’s inflammation and keeping it at bay.

Reduce Sebum

Does your skin sometimes feel too oily, especially before a breakout? That may be due to an overproduction of sebum. Sebum is an oil that the skin produces. It can clog the pores and lead to blackheads and whiteheads. With blue light, you can get to the heart of your pores and reduce sebum production.

Prevent Future Breakouts

According to StudyFinds, more than 50% of survey respondents said they aren’t comfortable in their own skin. When you’re dealing with breakouts, you may be one of those people who feel very self-conscious about your skin. You can ease that burden with blue light therapy. Blue light therapy can prevent future breakouts from occurring by fighting acne at the source. It reduces inflammation and the production of oil (which often leads to breakouts). When you’re confident that you’re less likely to have a pimple or a range of blackheads, you’re likely to feel more confident and happier as opposed to stressed, and when you’re not under a lot of stress, you help your skin look younger and healthier.
