Use of light therapy for the treatment of stubborn moderate long-term acne

Use of light therapy for the treatment of stubborn moderate long-term acne AbstractThis case study offers a treatment account of a 25-year-old female (Helen) who had suffered moderate acne for 12 years with limited treatment success. Throughout the article, the author details her treatment with adjuvant light therapies in clinic (Omnilux) and continuous treatment at home with a portable blue light device (Lustre Pure Light). Helen experienced noticeable results within 3–5 weeks of treatment and, after 6 weeks, her acne was under control and required a modest home maintenance programme to keep her skin clear. Clinical outcomes demonstrate how in-clinic and home-based treatments made Helen feel more confident and in control, enhanced her compliance, reduced the need for clinic resources and was cost effective. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Aesthetic Nursing Mark Allen Group

Abstract

AbstractThis case study offers a treatment account of a 25-year-old female (Helen) who had suffered moderate acne for 12 years with limited treatment success. Throughout the article, the author details her treatment with adjuvant light therapies in clinic (Omnilux) and continuous treatment at home with a portable blue light device (Lustre Pure Light). Helen experienced noticeable results within 3–5 weeks of treatment and, after 6 weeks, her acne was under control and required a modest home maintenance programme to keep her skin clear. Clinical outcomes demonstrate how in-clinic and home-based treatments made Helen feel more confident and in control, enhanced her compliance, reduced the need for clinic resources and was cost effective.
