Blue Light Therapy Before & After
The program involves a series of intense blue lights applied to the area requiring treatment. Any acne, spots or spotty tone, freckles, hyperpigmentation or age spots will be evaporated or absorbed by the heating light.
Differing from laser treatment, Blue Light penetrates all layers of the skin, seeking out abnormally dilated blood vessels. Micro pores are created within the capillaries, causing them to shrink from the energy of the light. This treatment will be repeated every two weeks.
For moderate to advanced acne, ALA (Alpha Levulanic Acid) can be applied prior to the Blue Light treatment.
After Care Instructions
Your specialist at SpaMedica in Toronto may recommend you to administer topical or oral antibiotics or apply certain medical skin care products for some time after your treatment.
Following ALA treatments, precautions must be taken to avoid sunlight, UV and florescent lighting for 24-48 hours post treatment. Sunglasses, sunscreen, a scarf and a hat must be worn when leaving the clinic, after these treatments as a preventative measure.
Maintenance treatments are performed once a week can help control the number of acne outbreaks, and it is recommended that you supplement your initial treatment with a number of follow up visits to ensure longevity of your results.
You may experience a low level of pain throughout the Blue Light Therapy treatment, often compared to the discomfort of a mild sunburn. Skin may become slightly red or pink. Some patients also experience slight swelling or discomfort following their procedure, however you can return to work and daily activities immediately following.
