NEW YORK, Jan. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the American Academy of Dermatology, blue-light treatment is the best-known alternative for the 50 million Americans suffering from acne, using light therapy proven to decrease the number of acne-causing bacteria by targeting it under the surface. Treatment devices like the Silk'n Blue are recommended as at-home solutions by top dermatologists including Dr. Michael Gold, world-renowned Nashville-based dermatologist and founder of the Gold Skin Care Center.
Silk'n Blue, a safe, convenient and FDA-cleared hand-held device, eliminates the root causes of breakouts and prevents future blemishes, using the same technology of dermatologic medical equipment. Featuring the power of 415nm wavelength of blue light emitting diode (LED) technology, combined with infrared heat, the Blue includes a dermal heating system addressing overproducing oil glands used to provide a smoother, clearer complexion.
Dr. Gold conducted a study at the Tennessee Clinical Research Center for Silk'n Blue, consisting of patients with acne, who used the device eight times over a four week period, with visits at one and three months. Results published in the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy included a statistically significant acne reduction, with 36.4% of the patients experiencing complete clearance and 90% reduction in acne lesions at the study conclusion. "Blue light therapy for acne is useful and with the Silk'n Blue, we now have a solution for those suffering from acne. Our clinical study confirmed the usefulness of this device," says Dr. Gold.
