The BlueLight Therapy Process
What to Expect
Before receiving a light therapy acne treatment at CaTara in Chicago, you will meet with a provider to discuss your concerns and goals for your skin. We will explain your treatment options in-depth and help you decide what is best for you.
Your Bluelight Therapy Appointment
When you arrive for your appointment, your provider will ensure you are comfortable and provide protective eyewear before beginning the treatment. The process is pain-free as the light works to kill bacteria within the skin and reduce inflammation.
Blue LED light therapy requires no downtime. You can return to your routine right after your treatment.
Another advantage of Bluelight therapy in Chicago that there is not much preparation needed before treatment.
Continue performing your normal skincare routine before your appointment. Let your provider know if you are on any acne medications, and avoid any strong exfoliating products and excess sun exposure.
After your treatment, you should avoid direct sun exposure for 48 hours. You can use over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication or a cold pack if you experience any mild swelling or redness.
