Not all Photofacials are created equal. Our Photofacial uses LED light therapy courtesy of ground breaking research from NASA. Indeed, NASA research is being incorporated in skin care technology! Their research showed that certain light frequencies had the ability to inspire new cell growth which could lead to the improved appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It even improved discoloration and unevenness in the skin.

Photofacials are safe, non-invasive and non-thermal, popular treatments in Los Angeles. Using a combination of red, amber and blue light LED can improve a variety of skin conditions.

Q: How Does A Photofacial Treat Acne?

Blue Light Acne Treatment

For those battling acne, we recommend the Blue LED Photofacial. Los Angeles acne sufferers will see amazing results with this high-tech acne treatment. Blue LED light therapy actually produces a kind of oxygen, singlet oxygen, that is toxic to acne causing bacteria. 

Red Light Treatment

The Red Light Photofacials treat acne on several levels:

  • Since the acne bacteria that causes breakouts thrives on sebum, the first thing red light photo therapy does is starve the p. acne bacteria of it's food source by regulating sebum production.   The result is less bacteria which leads to less breakouts.
  • Because red light photo therapy is anti-inflammatory, you will notice an immediate reduction in swelling and redness.
  • Red light photo therapy simultaneously shrinks pores which will helps lay the foundation for clearer skin.
  • Red light jump starts the bodies healing response which makes blemishes heal faster.
  • Red light promotes the production of collagen which helps repair skin, such as acne scars.
Our photofacials have shown to drastically improve acne in a way that is non-invasive and pain free.
