Remove Acne And Acne Scars

If you are suffering from an outbreak of spots and blemishes you may want to try blue light therapy for acne. This will involve a few sessions of sitting in front of a LED box where you are confronted with a intense light shining in your face. The light simulates the action of natural sunlight without the harmful effects of UV rays and it works to kill the harmful bacteria that cause acne. A session of light therapy usually lasts about 30 minutes. You should also take this time to completely relax and reflect on your lifestyle and think about other ways in which you can assist yourself to reduce the appearance of acne, whether it means a change in your diet, or altering your morning skin care cleansing routine.

Reduce The Appearance Of Wrinkles

Sitting in front of a light box helps to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. It is the collagen that helps the skin look firmer and more plumped up. The more plumped up the skin is, the firmer the skin tone is and this naturally leads to the smoothing out of wrinkles which leaves you with younger looking wrinkle free skin.

As light therapy gets more and more popular, you will find that you can get treatments not only from your dermatologist but also from a range of good spas and beauty parlours. This non invasive treatment works well in combination with other skin care treatments like chemical peels or mircrodermabrasion.
