Blue Light can also treat scaly or crusty growths called actinic keratoses, which are caused by sun damage. Left untreated, actinic keratoses can advance to squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), the second most common form of skin cancer. In addition, Blue Light can rejuvenate the skin’s appearance while making it healthier.
Side effects are minimal with Blue Light treatments, although the procedure is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing. You may experience some mild redness, swelling and dryness.
If you are interested in eliminating acne, reversing the appearance of sun-damaged skin or treating actinic keratoses, the team at Skin Specialists of San Antonio can help.
