Acne is a cause of suffer and discomfort to many people around the world who have to deal with it daily.
The introduction of light-based technology solutions created a revolution in Ance treatment. The treatments are much shorter, easier and more effective.
As part of a routinely metabolism process, the P. Acne bacteria generates an organic compound called porphyrin. High intensity broad spectrum light (Especially blue light) triggers the porphyrin to release single oxygen atoms (Free radicals). These free radicals are seeking other atoms to attach themselves to. They make connections to molecules they are not supposed to connect to, and by doing so they ruin the functionality of these molecules. The activity of many single oxygen atoms destroys the P. Acne bacteria.
