Is light therapy good for back and body acne?
Yes, back and body acne is easy to treat with every light in our product line. The lights are safe and equally effective for inflammatory acne anywhere on the body.
What about using ALA or Levulan in conjunction with blue light? (PDT or Photodynamic Therapy.)
Can I use the Tri Peak™ with other topical acne medications?
Yes, you can, but should you? Blue and red light therapy is a natural acne treatment, and it works best with other natural acne treatments.
The purpose of blue light is to kill the acne bacteria on and under the surface of your skin. If that is also the purpose of your topical acne medication, then there is no need for it, and this is a good opportunity to give your skin a break from the harsh chemicals. For mild to moderate inflammatory acne, blue or red/blue light should be the only acne treatment you need.
If you choose to continue your topical acne treatment, then be sure your skin is clean and free of any topical medication before each treatment.
Can I use the Tri Peak™ with other oral acne medications?
Please consult your doctor or dermatologist about this. Some oral medications may cause your skin to be oversensitive to light (photosensitive). Again, blue light is a natural acne treatment, and it works best with other natural treatments. Any oral medication will affect you on a cellular level, and may result in your light therapy being less effective, or ineffective. If your doctor recommends it, you should stop oral acne treatments for 2 weeks before beginning blue or blue/red light therapy.
