Tria Skin Perfecting Blue Light- At home blue light acne therapy. Will it work for me?

I have a confession.  I’ve been plagued my whole adult life by something I thought was just a teenage problem.  Acne.  I had it when I was a teenager, much worse then I have it now, but I never thought that I’d have problems all the way into my 30’s. My outbreaks happen mostly on my neck and jaw. I try to keep my face clean and have tried various natural remedies. To no avail. Face washes with salicylic acid, a typical acne treatment are not strong enough (I guess?), face washes with benzoyl peroxide are too strong and I end up with a red swollen face that feels like it is on fire.

Here is a picture of the acne on my neck and jaw.  I’m in between breakouts in the picture so it isn’t even as bad at it often is, but you can see the residual redness from previous blemishes.

I was really intrigued when I first heard about blue light therapy.  Blue light therapy gets at the root of the acne problem—bacteria.  Tria Beauty Blue Light Acne Therapy is an innovative new acne treatment device that you can use at home.  No visits to the dermatologist, no medications, lotions, etc.

The before and after pictures on Tria’s website are pretty impressive so I’m hopeful that this acne treatment will work for me.  The pictures aren’t doctored and you can clearly see blemishes in the early pictures and just how much the acne cleared up in the after pictures.  In clinical studies, consumers saw 70% acne reduction in just two weeks, 93% noticed a smoother complexion in four weeks and 100% said skin looked healthier and more radiant in four weeks. Since my acne is mild compared with some of the people featured on the website, I’m hopeful that I’ll have some wonderful results to show you in several weeks.

Tria Skin Perfecting Blue Light is sold at and retails for $245.  It includes the Skin Perfecting Blue Light, the Skin Perfecting Blue Light Treatment cartridge (good for use to 300 minutes) and a battery charger.

  7. Shock hair loss is generally caused by physician error when doing
    the treatment, so picking a physician who understands exactly what they are
    doing is essential. A study published in The Journal of Dermatology
    revealed that chlorine causes discolouration and a change
    in hair texture. The step-by-step method of using castor oil for hair
    loss treatment:.

  8. You might have even heard of how “wonderful” it
    is yourself by friends or family. When melanin is exposed to UVA, longer wave
    ultraviolet, it oxidizes or darkens. You will need to maintain your tan to
    keep it looking nice. For that reason, some people have called it
    emotional abuse. Case in point, there was a beautiful blond who worked at my local pharmacy.
    Different materials require different thermal coatings.
    Consequently, there will be a decrease of development of hair.
    Tip 2: Know the products available for your skin tone.
    Spray tanning involves spraying a solution onto your body to generate a golden “tan” effect.
    For the people having medium color skin, they are supposed to believe
    the strength for 12 to 16 while the dark color people should go for 18-20 %.
