The short wavelengths in the blue light spectrum target the P.Acne bacteria in the tubes of the sebaceous glands. The photodynamic reaction between the blue light and the photoporphyrins, which are an integral part of the bacterial
membrane (light- sensitive molecules), results in oxidation and free radical damage to the bacterial cell membrane. P.Acne are destroyed in this free radical environment, reducing bacterial count and stopping the inflammatory process within the sebaceous gland. The procedure is a low risk treatment with no down-time, which can offer gradual and safe improvements for patients with active papular-papulopustular acne.
