UV Acne Lamp Provides Proven Solutions to Widespread Problem
LightSources provides lamps and lighting solutions for a multitude of applications around the world, including phototherapy lamps such as the specialized UV acne lamp. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, National Institute for Health Dermatology, acne vulgaris is the most common skin condition in the United States, affecting more than 85% of adolescents. Acne can persist into adulthood, with millions of Americans experiencing scarring from severe acne.
Conventional treatments such as antibiotics and retinoids have mixed results with patients and come with side effects such as antibiotic resistance, or harsh drying reactions from topical treatments. Newer methods of treatment have been developed in light therapy and show significant progress for treatment with light in the form of an acne lamp, with no harmful side effects.
Phototherapy Brings New Treatment Options with a UV Acne Lamp
Various phototherapy treatments have been studied which include intense pulsed light (IPL), photodynamic therapy (PDT) and narrow band light sources. A combination of blue-light and red-light therapy has been a highly successful treatment for acne without irritating and painful side effects of other acne treatments. Light is broken down into colors, and measured by the wavelength it emits, referred to as nanometer (nm).
A combination of blue light and red light is proven effective at treating acne by alleviating current outbreaks and preventing new ones. When blue light is emitted at 415 nm it has an antibacterial effect and is highly effective at killing bacteria which helps to prevent breakouts. Red light wavelengths at 600 – 700 nm is effective at soothing inflammation and stimulating cell regeneration, repair and healing.
