Acne affects up to 50 million Americans annually, making it the most common skin condition in the United States1. Unfortunately, breakouts can occur at any stage of life. Clinical studies have shown that 40-55% of adults aged 20 to 40 are diagnosed with low-grade acne and oily skin. Aside from the physical effects of acne, the condition can also have an impact on emotional and psychological well-being.
Acne is usually caused by overactive sebaceous glands that produce too much oil and clog pores. Combined with the presence of P. acnes bacteria, this is what leads to the blackheads, whiteheads, and inflammation associated with acne.
The innovative Acne Dual applicator uses Intense Pulsed Light with SmartPulse technology to treat both the underlying cause and the visible symptoms of acne.
It uses a combination of blue and red light delivered simultaneously—the blue light destroys acne-causing bacteria in the oil glands, while the red light reduces existing acne-related inflammation to promote faster healing. Research has shown that when blue and red light are administered together, the results are much better than with just blue light alone.
