Blulight Acne Clear (PDT)

BluLight Acne Clear is a light-based therapy skin treatment that has gained much popularity for its ability to target various skin issues, and help in general skin restructuring. One of its most useful properties is its ability to target problematic acne-causing bacteria and unsightly acne scars.

 

Blue light therapy works by destroying acne-causing bacteria. Used together with red light, which has anti-inflammatory properties to soothe active inflamed acne, it is highly effective in treating acne skin conditions in a quick, painless way.

 

BluLight Acne Clear treatment uses FDA approved PDT technology and is suitable for those who wish to lighten acne scars, counter bad acne outbreaks, and for those who wish to see a general rejuvenation of their skin. It is especially effective in treating oily acne skin and ageing skin.

 

This skin treatment is available at our aesthetics centres.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the treatment like?

The target area is first thoroughly cleansed and dried. Adequate eye protection will be provided to protect the eyes from a prolonged period of light exposure. The target area is then exposed to the blue light for about 20 minutes.

How long will it take before I am able to see results?

PDT light can be performed once to twice a week for at least 6 to 10 sessions depending on the severity of the acne skin condition. After 1 session, redness caused by acne outbreak is reduced. Skin also appears brighter and rejuvenated due to the skin-repair process being activated.

Who is suitable for this treatment?

This treatment is effective yet gentle enough to be done on most people. People who are sensitive to light or have a light phobia should exercise caution. BluLight Skin Clear is safe even for dark skin tones, with minimal risk of hyperpigmentation.

What are the complementary treatments to help improve treatment results?

Are there any side effects from the treatment?

This treatment has no known side effects and has been proven safe and effective, even for those with dark skin tones. The skin may experience a slight discomfort in the form of a “mild sunburn” sensation, which disappears within 24 hours.

Is there any post-treatment care you would advise?

We recommend avoiding direct sun exposure for 24 to 48 hours after the treatment. Sunblock of at least SPF 30 should be applied regularly in addition to moisturising the treated area. For home care, we recommend ClearSK Medi-Skincare acne lotion or acne gel to speed up the treatment process and maintain results.
