Acne Phototherapy

LED Acne Phototherapy is the safe, quick, painless, and effective solution to acne and breakouts for all ages. At some point in our lives most of us will suffer from pimples or acne, however chronic and persistent acne can occur in anyone from their pre-teens to late 40’s.

Our trained technicians use a tightly regulated wavelength of light, emitted via LED’s or light emitting diodes. This light destroys the acne causing bacteria that occur naturally on the skin of acne sufferers, resulting in a reduction of up to 90% in acne. Activation of coproporphyrin III creates intracellular singlet oxygen – inducing complete bacterial death. This reduces the bacterial colonisation of the sebaceous gland, returning the gland’s abnormally high level of sebum to normal.

Phototherapy is your solution to clean, clear, and beautiful skin. Over the counter remedies often have little effect on this emotionally distressing condition and frequently acne sufferers conceal the condition, or refrain from public engagements altogether. Acne Phototherapy you can come out of the shadows, and let your natural beauty shine.
