Laser Acne Phototherapy
Acne is a disorder of the skin's sebaceous glands that
results in plugged pores and outbreaks of lesions. One of the most
common skin diseases, nearly 80% of people will suffer from acne at some
point in their lives. For some, it is simply annoying. For others, acne
is a problem with an often negative impact. Now, light-based
phototherapy treatments for acne offer hope to millions of sufferers
unwilling or unable to take systemic medications.
Though commonly considered as a teenager problem, 20% of all adults
suffer from varying degrees of active acne. Aggravation of acne may
occur with menstrual periods, birth control pills, use of oil-based
products and stress. "There is no single disease which causes more
psychic trauma, more general insecurity and feelings of inferiority than
Acne occurs when the oil produced by the sebaceous glands does not reach
the surface of the skin and is trapped in the clogged pores. Bacteria
thrive in these clogged pores and pus leaks into the surrounding tissues
causing pimples to form.
Each year, approximately 5 billion dollars is spent on acne treatment,
most of it on medication. Many of these medications, ranging from
over-the-counter to prescription, are expensive and may cause unwanted
side effects. They generally require months of continuous treatment, and
many patients see only limited improvement or no improvement at all.
When treating acne, time is of the essence. LHE works fast, offering a
complete treatment in 30 days compared with the 6–18 months usually
required for systemic treatment. LHE’s addition of heat intensifies the
chemical process and speeds overall treatment time. You often look and
feel better within 2 weeks of starting treatment.
How LHE Acne Phototherapy works
Blocked pores create a closed anaerobic environment that leads to rapid
buildup of a P. acnes colony under the skin.
LHE clears acne safely and effectively with a series of concentrated
pulses of light and heat. The green wavelength light penetrates deep
into the skin to cause an increase in porphyrins, resulting in the
destruction of P. acnes.
The red wavelength produces anti-inflammatory results. The addition of
heat, unique to LHE, increases the effectiveness by opening the skin
pores and promoting a faster chemical reaction.
