Blue Light Acne Clearing
Protect your skin against breakouts and acne with Renew Beauty treatments!
Acne is one of the most common and stubborn skin problems. Regardless of skin type or lifestyle, approximately 80% of the population will suffer from acne at some point in their lives. Acne is common in both teens and adults.
Acne occurs when there is an overproduction of oil by the oil glands in the skin. The oil that normally lubricates the skin gets trapped in blocked oil ducts and results in what we know as pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads on the surface of skin. Sometimes it also includes deeper skin lesions that are called cysts.

By preventing those you are also avoiding future scarring and hyper-pigmentation.

Acne responds well to treatment, especially if treated early, at the onset of the condition.

Facials and medi peels will help clear out imbedded oil while also exfoliating off dead skin so skis oil will not get trapped under the skin.
Blue Light Treatments:
P. acnes is the bacteria responsible for causing acne inflammation, pumps out tiny molecules called porphyrins. When porphyrin are exposed to certain wavelengths of light (blue), they produce free radicals that kill the bacteria that causes inflammatory acne.
