If you are looking for light therapy to treat your body acne, you may want to look at Chromolite. Chromolite is an Intense Pulsed Light System (IPL) that emits a concentrated pulse of light which targets the hair follicles for permanent hair reduction, acne treatment or skin rejuvenation. Chromolite, with its unique Smartlite technology, offers a light based therapy for acne on the body and face with little or no side effects and downtime.
It is clinically proven effective, and has been independently tested by the British Journal of Dermatology and approved by FDA as an effective form of acne blemish treatment. What’s more, Chromolite is capable of treating most skin and hair colours on both men and women.
The green light creates oxygen rich environments to drive away the oxygen-shy P. Acnes bacteria which tends to build up within the hair follicles. This buildup of the P. Acnes bacteria is what causes the inflamed and painful spots of active body and facial acne.
The yellow light absorbs into blood targets and thus can effectively be used to coagulate and collapse vascular irregularities. The unique red light reduces acne swellings, targets unwanted pigmentation and builds new collagen for clearer and smoother skin. Fines lines and skin laxity are also reduced. This is clearly an acne and anti-aging treatment rolled into one.
For most cases, it takes four weeks or less for the skin to completely clear up. At the same time, the skin rejuvenation effects of Chromolite improve the skin environment to help control future facial and body acne outbreaks.
The number of light therapy treatment sessions required to rejuvenate the skin and effectively treat active acne depends on the severity of the condition. Most people commonly require between six and ten sessions.
Despite the promising results of Chromolite, before starting treatment, be sure to consult a trained Chromolite IPL operator to discuss your eligbility for treatment. Take some time to fully understand the pre and post treatment skin care requirements. Your Chromolite treatment specialist may also perform a patch test to assess your skin’s sensitivity.
Most treatments have produced little or no visible after-effects so you can resume your normal routine quickly. Some parts of the body are more sensitive than others and may redden and swell, similar to the effects you experience with too much sun exposure.
Remember to avoid UV exposure 6 weeks before and after each treatment to reduce the risk of side effects. During the treatment you are most likely to experience some sensation of heat. However, be sure to inform your Chromolite operator immediately if you feel any discomfort during the session.
