The ClearLight Acne Photo Clearing (APC) therapy gives clients a new option in treating moderate inflammatory acne without side effects, discomfort, photosensitivity or downtime. ClearLight uses the innovative Acne PhotoClearing (APC) technology to destroy the most common bacteria that causes acne- quickly and easily. ClearLight is one of the safest acne treatments available. Its APC technology uses light that is UV-safe. The ClearLight uses a high intensity narrow band of light source of 405-420 nanometers, which will trigger the production of endogenic porphyrins. These porphyrins attack and destroy the acne causing bacteria within the skin. ClearLight treatment can take place even if your physician is treating you with antibiotics or Accutane. Two fifteen-minute treatments a week for four weeks has proven to clear acne up to 80 percent.
