DERMATIQUE™ MEDICAL CENTER FOR ADVANCED SKIN CARE OFFERS BLUE LIGHT THERAPY FOR ACNE
Millions of people suffer each year from acne. Dermatique Medical Center for Advanced Skincare, Inc in Westlake Village is proud to offer the latest treatment for acne…BLUE LIGHT THERAPY.
It is a two-step procedure that is minimally invasive and can be done on your lunch hour. During the first step, a topical solution called Levulan Kerastick is applied to the skin. After an incubation period of 30-45 minutes the patient is exposed to a special blue light that will treat the acne and destroy the bacteria deep in the skin and hair follicles which causes acne. The procedure usually takes 8-10 minutes. Patients typically need between 3-5 treatments depending on the severity of their acne, usually 3-4 weeks apart.
After each treatment the patient may experience some redness and skin sensitivity. Most patients can return to normal activity immediately but must avoid sun exposure for 5-7 days.
According to Dr Marc Kerner, “patients with difficult to treat acne respond favorably to blue light and levulan therapy and more importantly it may treat acne without the use of dangerous oral medications.”
