Acne light treatment

Treatment of acne vulgaris with light-emitting diodes (LED)

Treatment of acne vulgarisA new modern method of treatment of acne vulgaris with the use of light-emitting diodes (LED) is applied in the Laser Dermatology Clinic. The Omnilux light-emitting diodes technology is used in the treatment of acne, sun-associated skin damage, skin cancer (except for melanoma), and vitiligo as well as for skin rejuvenation.

LED photo-therapy (treatment with light of a certain wavelength) is a real revolution in the treatment of acne vulgaris. The system of Omnilux light-emitting diodes created by Phototherapeutics is applied for the treatment of both mild and severe, even cystic, cases of acne. Treatment with antibiotics, hormones and synthetic retinoids takes a lot of time and improves the skin condition only temporarily: as soon as treatment is suspended, acne reappears in most cases just in a few days or weeks. Besides, pharmaceutical treatment of acne is associated with increasing resistance of bacteria to various antibiotics and, quite often, undesirable manifestation of medication.

What Omnilux LED is and how does it work?

Omnilux photo-therapy is a non-invasive and effective treatment of acne with the use of light. Light therapy acts in complex with the organism’s own protection annihilating acne. Omnilux LED is the source of light comprised of LEDs and emitting light of a certain wavelength. This type of light, which has been the subject of long-term scientific research, is aimed for the annihilation of Propionibacteriun acnes, i.e. the bacteria which cause acne vulgaris.

Propionibacterium acnes produce light-sensitive substances, porphyrins (co-porphyrin III and protoporphyrin). Short-wave blue light emitted by Omnilux perfectly matches the light sensitivity of porphyrins (415 nm). When absorbing this light, porphyrins release free intra-cell oxygen which kills bacteria Propionibacterium acnes themselves. The inflammation process is also mitigated as a result of annihilation of bacteria. After they are killed, red light (a system of LEDs emitting red light with a wavelength of 633 nm), which has anti-inflammatory effect and facilitates the healing of the skin. In this way, the existing acne rash skins over and does not reappear and irritation goes away.

The light emitted by LEDs also reduces the production of sebum and inflammatory cytokines, resulting in the reduction of the amount of sebum produced sebaceous glands down to a normal level, and the irritation disappears. Besides, fibroblasts that are responsible for the production of collagen are simulated improving the colour and tonicity of the skin after the procedures.

ALA photodynamic therapy

In severe cases of acne, local medicines (ALA) are applied to the skin 2 – 3 hours prior to the procedure, thus increasing the susceptibility of the skin to light emitted by the LEDs. Such treatment of acne is called photodynamic therapy. This type of therapy helps to ensure the remission of the disease even in severe, cystic cases of acne vulgaris.

omnilux treatmentHow are procedures conducted?

On the basis of the evaluation of the acne rash, the dermatologist will prepare an individual programme, in accordance with which you will undergo procedures with the use of blue and/or red light every 3-4 days. Clinical tests have established that 8 procedures are necessary for long-term remission of acne vulgaris. The duration of one procedure is 20-30 minutes. The complete light therapy programme for acne lasts 4 weeks. One can return to the usual life order right after the procedure because there will be no visible changes of the skin (except for slight redness of the skin which clears up within a few hours).

How effective the LED treatment of acne is?

According to clinical tests, the scope of acne vulgaris rash decreases, on average, by 81 per cent after a course of 8 procedures. As soon as after the first procedure, you will notice that indications of acne vulgaris decrease and disappear. Blue and red light emitted by LEDs stimulates the immune function of skin; therefore, the curative effect persists for a long time. In order to prevent rash from reappearance as long as possible or to ensure that it has a milder form even if appears, the doctor will prescribe an individual programme to care of your skin.

The skin becomes smooth and clear and the results are visible immediately!

I am not a frequent visitor of beauty and aesthetics clinics but I think carefully about where to go if the need arises.

Their qualified professionals and very pleasant atmosphere is why I always go to Era Esthetic clinic when any problems arise in relation to my body or skin.

Respectfully,

Our faces are our voiceless business cards. Moreover, every woman seeks a healthy and flawless look of her skin. I’m no exception.

Our faces are our voiceless business cards. Moreover, every woman seeks a healthy and flawless look of her skin. I’m no exception. In addition, my work requires me to take special care of my face – quite frequent use of decorative cosmetic products requires proper care of the skin. So, in order to achieve the results I wanted, I chose the HydraFacial treatment at ERA ESTHETIC clinic. I think you will be curious to learn more about the process as well as the effects that this treatment has. Basically, it is a patented non-invasive skin rejuvenation, deep cleansing and moisturising skin care done by modern aesthetic cosmetology technology – otherwise known as an ‘all-inclusive’ treatment. Today, Hydrafacial is included in the list of the most popular cosmetic treatments performed at prestigious medical clinics and spas all around the world. This procedure has three parts. Firstly, the skin is effectively cleansed; it gets exposed to a vacuum; it’s actively moisturised by different active serums. And all this is done simultaneously, which saves us time. Isn’t that great? The treatment was done by a great cosmetologist and beauty therapist, Alina Mockevičienė, and it lasted for about 45 minutes. You know, the face is quite a sensitive, I would even say intimate, part of our body, so it’s important to choose a specialist you trust; that way you can rest assured that you are in the hands of a professional. I would highly recommend Alina because in her chair I felt super safe and comfortable. I’ll tell you what kind of results I experienced after the first treatment: it restored the elasticity of my skin, as it had been looking rather tired lately. My skin was deep-cleansed. This means the reduced enlarged pores – and, believe me, with my job specifics I’m really not lacking them…The texture and tone of my skin have improved! Before the treatment, I had noticed that my face was somewhat greyish. Another good thing that will become even more important as time goes on is that this treatment slows down the ageing of the skin! And, although I am only 23 years old and the ageing process has not started yet (it usually starts at 25 years), preventive measures are always welcome and the sooner we start taking care of the skin, the more beneficial it will be for us. To tell the truth, if seeking maximum results this kind of treatment should be done once a month or as needed. I can confirm that the treatment did not cause any discomfort; in fact, it stimulated the skin in rather a pleasant way and was relaxing. As Alina would say, it is like being given a small kiss on your face by a kitten – somewhat scratchy, but at the same time very pleasant. I hope that the kitten will kiss you as well, leaving you glowing and even more beautiful!!!

I am very satisfied and would like to share my feelings about it with you. I found the clinic randomly while in search of a hair removal procedure using the most advanced laser technology. I discovered that Era Esthetic clinic is the only clinic in the Baltic states which uses the Alexandrito laser. This laser ensures very quick and effective results. I am very satisfied with the procedures and really recommend them to everybody. Over time and due to daily stress our skin loses its moisture, brightness and firmness, so I had a consultation with doctor Jurgita Stoškienė, who is qualified to the highest level, and who examined the skin very pleasantly and offered especially effective procedures. The results were obvious after the first procedure. The procedure I often have is HydraFacial, performed by Viktorija and Alina, who are masters of the process. I trust in them and give myself completely into their hands. I understand that regardless of what you are searching for,it is always best to come here, as only here can you find everything in one place – the best specialists, and the latest innovative technologies and hardware. All this is proven over time by the results and excellent service you will experience after going through the doors of the amazing clinic Era Esthetic.
