The treatment of inflammatory acne using intense pulsed light is constantly gaining popularity among patients seeking a drug-free alternative to treat this chronic, common skin disease that affects up to 80% of individuals at some time in their life. SharpLight systems provide very satisfactory results in the treatment of mild and moderate inflammatory acne, by reducing the number of papules and pustules by 60-65%. This is achieved using three effective, safe and reliable clinical mechanisms: visible blue light absorption to destroy the bacteria, yellow light to coagulate the feeding blood vessels and infrared light to dry the lesions.



Inflammatory Acne Treatment using the SharpLight 415nm Hand Piece 


Inflammatory acne photo therapy is based on the specific Selective porphyrin reaction of the propionibacterium metabolism.                                                                            

Whenever acne bacteria are irradiated with a SharpLight 415 nm blue light hand piece, free radicals (porphyrins) are produced in the sebaceous gland that destroys the bacteria on the acne lesions.


The hand piece also emits yellow light that shrinks the blood vessels supplying the lesion, improving healing.
