LIGHTWAVE is safe, simple, and easy. The amount of time you spend at your skin care specialist may vary based on your individual skin care needs. You can expect an individual LIGHTWAVE treatment to take up 30 minutes and allow for an additional 20 minutes for pre and post care. It’s so simple and fast that many patients have treatments during a lunch break or on a quick stop on the way to or from work. However, the relaxing, euphoric effect usually lasts throughout the day.
This program is designed to allow the user to provide a protocol specific for a treatment condition that has not been addressed by one of the other pre-set protocols and has been shown to benefit from intense red and infrared light. It utilizes 15 minutes of continuous narrowband red light followed by 15 minutes of continuous narrow band IR light.
Blue light (wavelength 405nm-450nm) provides a very superficial penetration even with a high- intensity narrow band light source. It is primarily absorbed by the epidermis of the skin. Once it is absorbed, blue light targets P. acnes by stimulating porphyrins which then produce intracellular singlet oxygen and thus inducing bacterial death.
