Troubled By Acne?

So many people are troubled with acne. I don’t know whether it is better to be an adult with the problem; or a teenager. Either way, it is a nuisance. My son has tried many different treatments and has his acne under control for some time, but does get an occasional flare up.

I recently ran across an item from Tanda, that is used for acne and also anti-aging. It is an acne light treatment that uses a blue light LED treatment to cure acne. The blue light is for acne and the red light is for anti-aging. It seems as though the blue LED light kills the P.acne bacteria, resulting in fewer breakouts and the red light boosts cellular energy increasing the production of collagen, elastin and microcirculation; the result is plumper, firmer and more youthful skin. Hopefully acne free!

I found Tandem’s explanation on how and why a pimple forms to be very interesting; they explain that hormonal changes cause our sebaceous gland to produce excess sebum and P. acnes bacteria feed on the sebum and multiply, clogged pores trap the multiplying P.acnes bacteria and white blood cells move in to fight off the invading bacteria resulting in a pimple. So, if the light is able to kill the bacteria, then hopefully the acne will not develop.
