The facts concerning acne lamps

While most people have heard about SAD light box treatment, few are aware of the use of an acne lamp to help those suffering from this very common skin complaint. Read on to learn more about the use of acne lamps, how they can help your skin and where to purchase them.

All about acne lamps

The use of phototherapy on acne patients was studied by the British Journal of Dermatology (BJD), which has shown blue and red light therapy to be an effective treatment for acne. In fact, after just 12 weeks of treatment, there was a recognised improvement of 76% in inflammatory lesions. About acne lamps Unlike the SAD light box for those suffering from seasonal affective disorder, acne lamps are beneficial throughout the year and require just 15 minutes treatment a day to show improvement. According to the BJD, blue red therapy is a treatment option well worth exploring. Acne lamps come in all different shapes and sizes, such as a hand-held lamp, tabletop lamp or lamp containing three powerful LED panels. For more information on acne lamps, head to the helpful site Acnelamp.com for up-to-date advice on phototherapy products.

Where to buy acne lamps

If acne is a real problem for you or a loved one, it is well worth knowing where you can get hold of acne lamps. While some High Street stores and larger supermarkets (such as Boots, Tesco and Argos) do sell a small variety of acne lamps, your best bet is to head online. Buying acne lamps There are many brands of acne lamps now available from many different online stores, making it easy to find the right phototherapy for you from the comfort of your own home.
