Between 50-90% of people in the United States will suffer from an acne related diagnosis at one point in their life. Hundreds of thousands of people in Seattle alone have dealt with this disorder, which causes pimples, redness, white heads and scarring. The disorder itself is caused by hormones and other triggers affecting the skin’s oil glands, sebaceous glands and hair follicles. Many people have acne and acne scars which they wish could be eliminated. Fortunately, regaining smoothness and eliminating acne scars can be easily accomplished at Island Dermatology in Seattle, with Sciton BBL Blue Light Acne Treatments.
Sciton BBL Blue Light Acne Treatment consists of advanced, dual broadband light technology, which administers violet light deep under the skin to activate a porphyrin. This will kill acne-causing bacteria and smooth the skin. While being able to reach the deep layers of your skin without surface damage, this treatment can improve skin texture and lessen the appearance of scars, which is extremely useful for those who have both ongoing acne and existing scars.
Those who suffer from mild to moderate acne are most likely to benefit from Sciton BBL Blue Light Acne Treatment, as they are most likely to have the p. acnes bacterium which the Blue Light system destroys. You may also notice that the oiliness of your skin will likely be reduced, pore sizes will get smaller, and within a just few weeks, noticeable reduction or even elimination of acne will occur. Since the p. acnes bacterium multiplies rapidly, regular, consistent treatments will work best. An average patient will receive approximately eight sessions over a four week period, each session lasting about 15 minutes. Patients see an average of over 55% improvement in their skin’s texture during this time.
Side effects are minimal, and may include some minor swelling, surface dryness, and temporary pigment changes, due to the deep sub-dermal effects.
