What is Photo Therapy?
Photo Therapy is an advanced acne treatment technology, which uses light-heat energy based on a multi wavelength laser. The laser selectively targets and destroys the acne causing bacteria, P.acnes, from within, without harming the surrounding skin.
How effective is it?
70% to 90% of the inflamed acne will be cleared in one month using Photo Therapy. This is 1/3rd the time it takes for alternative treatments.
8 treatments at a 2 to 4 day interval are required to clear the acne. Touch-up treatments may be required to maintain desired results and address the dormant acne.
Who and What can be treated?
Photo Therapy is safe for use in all skin types and skin colors. It has been used in men and women age 12 and above.
The procedure involves a series of laser pulses administered to the area over a period of 10 to 20 minutes. It feels as if a rubber band is hitting your skin.
Skin will feel as if sun burnt and may appear red and irritated, immediately after the treatment. Ice, Aloe Vera, and 1% Hydrocortisone may be used to alleviate these conditions.
