Acne is one of the most commonly treated diseases in cosmetic dermatology, occurring in up to 80% of people at most stages of life. In spite of the multiple treatments available, many patients fail to improve adequately and many develop significant side effects.

Acne usually occurs during adolescence and affects particular areas of the body, such as the face, chest, and back. It involves an excessive production of sebum by hypertrophic sebaceous glands. When these factors are accompanied by a defect in keratinization, the skin becomes a fertile ground for build-up of corneal clogs in the follicular infundibulum. These may remain aseptic or result in the growth of microorganisms(mainly Propionibacterium acnes)which are responsible for the inflammatory lesions (papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts)that often result in macules and permanent scars.

Although acne usually heals spontaneously in early adulthood, treatment measures can shorten the course, reduce the severity of the disease, and help to prevent complications. In many patients a combination of treatments aimed at correcting abnormal keratinization and reducing the proliferation of Propionibacterium, or P. acnes, is sufficient to control the disease.

Phototherapy for acne is based on the fact that P. acnes produce porphyrins as part of its normal metabolism. Exposure of these compounds to specific wavelengths starts a chemical reaction that produces peroxide, which in turn kills the bacteria. In vitro tests of the visible light spectrum have shown that the stronger reaction occurs in the presence of narrow band, intense blue-violet light in the 405-420 nm wavelength range. ClearLight emits blue-violet light for the treatment of acne lesions for subjects with a variety of skin types. Concomitant use of Dr. Andy's Anti-Aging Cosmeceuticals will give excellent results in a short time.
