We want you to know about what causes acne and how you can treat it
Over 85% of Americans report that they have experienced at least minor acne symptoms in their lifetime.
Acne is actually one of the most common skin conditions in the UK, affecting millions of people.
Acne is most common among teenagers, though it affects people of all ages. Effective acne treatments are available, but acne can be persistent.
What causes acne?
Acne forms in pores -- the tiny holes in your skin. Each pore contains an oil-producing gland. The oil keeps your skin healthy.
But sometimes the oil, dirt, and dead skin cells can get trapped inside pores and clog them up. Bacteria called Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) that live on your skin can also get inside these blocked pores. P. acnes make the clogged pores swell up into bumps called acne
How is Acne Treated?
There are a lot of ways to clear up your acne, from creams and gels to chemical peels and antibiotics. But sometimes those breakouts happen anyway and can be stubborn to resolve.
Phototherapy is an option for stubborn acne that doesn't improve with other treatments. It uses a special type of blue light to kill the bacteria on your skin that causes acne and red light reduces inflammation and soothe your skin.
How Does Light Treat Acne?
- Acne forms in pores -- the tiny holes in your skin. Each pore contains an oil-producing gland. The oil keeps your skin healthy.
- But sometimes the oil, dirt, and dead skin cells can get trapped inside pores and clog them up. Bacteria called Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) that live on your skin can also get inside these blocked pores. P. acnes make the clogged pores swell up into bumps called acne.
- One way to kill bacteria and clear up pimples is with light. The bacteria in your skin are sensitive to certain types of light. When you shine these lights on your skin, toxic substances form and kill the bacteria. Light therapy also shrinks the oil glands in your skin, so your skin makes less pore-clogging oil.
How Does Blue Light Therapy Work?
Blue light therapy works by targeting and killing the bacteria that cause acne. The blue light penetrates deep into the skin and destroys the bacteria preventing further breakouts.
How Does Red Light Therapy Work?
Red light therapy works by reducing inflammation and swelling. The red light helps to reduce the appearance of redness and irritation, and it also helps to reduce the appearance of any acne scars.

The latest technology for light therapy
Our mission is to develop and manufacture Light Therapy (LLLT – phototherapy) devices for home use – which are safe, effective, reliable, and cost-effective. We study the latest internationally published scientific advances in Light Therapy to assist in our product development. Two of our devices are based on scientific research by the renowned Harvard Medical School. Below is a quote from Professor Hamblin, one of the world leaders in the application of light therapy-
AT HOME THERAPY DEVICES
- “I think interest in light therapy is definitely increasing,” says Michael Hamblin, PhD, an associate professor of dermatology at Harvard Medical School. “Instead of trekking to the doctor’s office to have light shined on them, consumers can now shine light on themselves at home. The light is basically the same, there are few safety issues, and it is a fraction of the cost... And thanks to the recent availability of low-cost, heat-free (and thus safer) light-emitting diodes (LEDs), there are more do-it-yourself gadgets for treating acne, depression, and pain online.”
