Blue Light & Acne...

TashaCat

Have you tried it?

It's not a new thing... but it seems to be picking up steam as a non-invasive way to treat acne. Have you tried it - at the derm, salon, or at home? What were your results? Was it worth the cost?

It can't solve the underlying issues which cause acne, but it can kill the bacteria which cause the bumps.

LOL... okay just me!

Guess I'm the only one crazy enough to try this?

I've just got one... and will try it out. There are a few home-use ones on the market, so I'm trying Blue MD. I think it is closest to the in-office kinds and has FDA approvals. Wish me luck!

Is that the same thing as zeno?

hmmmm... not sure, Alex

I don't think Zeno works the same way. It's a heat-based system. I had to look it up, so I'm not too sure of the technology used or how it works in the skin.

This is what I'm trying: https://www.trophyskin.com/products.php

But honestly, it's not easy to add into your routine because you have to lie still for 20 min with your eyes covered. I fell asleep once! Now I'm just listening to a book on my i-pod when I use it. The good thing is that it treats the whole face at once, and deals with the ones you don't see/feel yet. It's the same technology/theory used in those Tanda Clear and Professional machines and in spas who offer blue-light acne treatments.

Haven't tried it, but.....

I haven't tried it, but I looked into it at one point. I think it's really good for cystic acne and large pimples... But if your issue is blackheads/smaller bumps, you really just need a good exfoliation routine and some retinoids! Kate Somerville's RetASphere is AMAZING! It works wonders and doesn't dry your skin like the prescription strength. It also has tons of moisturizing effects, which obviously counteracts the drying effect. I recently started using it and have seen fantastic results! It's a bit pricey, but if you go to a store that carries it you could probably try a sample. Or, if you order from Sephora, you can return it if you're not satisfied. Let me know what you end up doing and how it works out for you!
