Beauty Angel acne skin treatments

Acne Light Therapy

Light Therapy can be a very effective stand-alone or complementary treatment for acne.
At Lisa's we have seen some outstanding results using our Beauty Angel light treatment system to treat acne.

How does Light Therapy work?

BEAUTY ANGEL uses light in special ranges of effectiveness to help prevent papules and pustules, the everyday spots/acne that many people get.

Blue light reaches the sebaceous (oil) glands in the skin, it can help excite porphyrins, which are compounds inside acne bacteria. When activated by light, these porphyrins kill the bacteria from the inside out.

Red light will help reduce inflammation and improve healing.
Light therapy will also inhibit sebum (skin oil) production and lessen inflammation.

More Information about acne

How Does Acne Develop?

Sometimes, the hair, sebum, and skin cells clump together into a plug. The bacteria in the plug cause swelling. Then when the plug starts to break down, a pimple grows. There are many types of pimples. The most common types are:

  • Whiteheads. These are pimples that stay under the surface of the skin.
  • Blackheads. These pimples rise to the skin’s surface and look black. The black color is not from dirt.
  • Papules. These are small pink bumps that can be tender.
  • Pustules. These pimples are red at the bottom and have pus on top.
  • Nodules. These are large, painful, solid pimples that are deep in the skin.
  • Cysts. These deep, painful, pus-filled pimples can cause scars.

Who Gets Acne?

Acne is the most common skin disease. People of all races and ages get acne. But it is most common in teenagers and young adults. An estimated 80 percent of all people between the ages of 11 and 30 have acne outbreaks at some point. Some people in their forties and fifties still get acne.

What Causes Acne?

The cause of acne is unknown. Doctors think certain factors might cause it:

  • The hormone increase in teenage years (this can cause the oil glands to plug up more often)
  • Hormone changes during pregnancy.
  • Starting or stopping birth control pills.
  • Heredity (if your parents had acne, you might get it, too).
  • Some types of medicine.
  • Greasy makeup.

What Things Can Make Acne Worse?

Some things can make acne worse:

  • Changing hormone levels in teenage girls and adult women 2 to 7 days before their period starts.
  • Pressure from bike helmets, backpacks, or tight collars.
  • Pollution and high humidity.
  • Squeezing or picking at pimples.
  • Hard scrubbing of the skin.
