Lightwave Blue

Clear skin begins with LIGHTWAVE therapy. A pain-free, drug-free alternative to treating unsightly acne.
LIGHTWAVE is safe, simple, and easy. The amount of time you spend at your skin care specialist may vary based on your individual skin care needs. You can expect an individual LIGHTWAVE treatment to take up 30 minutes and allow for an additional 20 minutes for pre and post care. Its so simple and fast that many patients have treatments during a lunch break or on a quick stop on the way to or from work.


Lightwave FDA cleared Blue Light Therapy is a natural, pain-free, treatment option which uses a powerful dosage of blue light to effectively destroy P. Acne bacteria and prevent future Acne breakouts from occurring. The blue light has a wavelength of 420nm which is primarily absorbed by the epidermis attacking the bacteria.

Is it effective?

Improvement in skin quality and a decrease in the number of lesions are often noticeable within the first few treatments. Optimal results usually occur within 8 weeks of starting the treatment.

How does it work?

Acne begins to develop when dead skin cells and excess oil or sebum come together to form a plug that clogs the skin’s pores and hair follicles.

Once the pores become clogged, acne-causing bacteria grow, infection and inflammation begin, and acne forms on the skin’s surface. If left untreated, the lesion can eventually rupture and cause scarring.

What can I expect?

A LIGHTWAVE treatment is often very relaxing and enjoyable. First, the skin is cleansed with an antibacterial wash and protective eyewear is fit into place.

Next, a panel of LIGHTWAVE blue LEDs are placed next to the affected area. The lights are illuminated and the lesions are exposed to acne-destroying blue light.

Finally, the skin is treated with a specific dose of soothing red light. This red light energy helps heal the skin and reduce inflammation.
