The BEST Natural Acne Treatment For Fast Results

May 13, 2019

When you think about your teenage years, awkward haircuts, braces, and acne might come to mind.

It’s practically a rite of passage into puberty and a dreaded inevitability of “growing up.” Sure, we’ve all experienced the occasional whitehead, blackhead, or pimple that makes us feel embarrassed and not our usual confident selves, but actual acne is a different beast. 

Acne is a persistent medical skin condition that can affect your face, chest, back, shoulders, and arms, and although it does not necessary impact our physical health, it can absolutely take a mental toll. Acne can make us feel ugly and self-conscious, wanting to retreat in our homes and hide from the world. And although acne is totally normal and nothing to be ashamed of, it can still place unnecessary stress on everyday life.

When a particularly extreme acne breakout happens, it can feel like nothing works fast enough to get us back in the clear.

Trust us, we get it. And we’re here to help.

What causes acne?

Let’s start with the basics. Acne is an extremely common skin condition, and it affects approximately 50 million Americans every year. In fact, 3 out of 4 people aged 11-30 years old have experience acne at least once in their lives.

Acne develops when an abundance of dead skin cells and a naturally-produced oil called sebum plug tiny hair follicles, or pores. As sebum production continues to build under the plug in the skin’s surface, it becomes infected with P. acne bacteria, causing swelling, redness, inflammation, and -- let’s face it -- embarrassment.

Acne presents itself in many ways - whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, and cysts are all common forms of acne, and each type can require a different approach for treatment. Although acne is often considered a “teenage issue,” it can occur to any person at any age for a wide array of reasons.

Why do adults get acne?

Although acne is typically thought to only affect teenagers and people in their early 20s, acne is actually very common in adults, as well. Some people experience acne into their 30s, 40s, and 50s, and even if they never suffered from acne as a teenager, “adult-onset acne” is a thing, typically caused by pregnancy, menopause, and

other hormonal imbalances. What’s worse, women are affected by adult-onset acne much more than men. So unfair, right?

There is not one clear answer as to what causes acne in adults, but it’s believed that a variety of factors such as hormones, genetics, diet, stress, makeup, poor skin care, and other underlying medical issues can cause adult acne, just to name just a few.

As an adult with so many responsibilities to worry about like jobs, bills, and kids, acne should be the last thing on your mind. The good news is, treatments are available.

What are common acne treatments?

If you suffer from acne, it’s more than likely you’ve tried your fair share of treatments. From over-the-counter cleansers, creams, masks, and serums to even more extreme measures like prescription antibiotics and even Accutane. The options go on.

Dermatologists recommend that people with acne take care to wash their face twice daily with a gentle yet effective cleanser. Touching your face, over-exfoliating, and appling heavy comedogenic creams are also serious no-no’s. But beyond that? There is no one-size-fits-all approach to tackling acne, and something that works for one person might

not work for another. Some people require a more specialized acne treatment “cocktail” of sorts to finally eliminate the breakouts for good. The problem is, it can take months -- or years -- to figure out which treatment, or combination of treatments, will finally banish adult acne and keep it from coming back. What’s more, conventional chemical-based

acne treatments can often dry out skin and cause even more irritation, exacerbating acne breakouts and their side effects.

Just think about how much time you’ll waste waiting for your pimples to disappear until you can feel confident and ready to take on the world. Nobody should ever feel that way.

How can blue light therapy get rid of acne faster?

If you suffer from acne, it’s likely you’ve heard of light therapy as a possible solution to your pimple woes. LED blue light therapy is the new wave of skin care for people who have tried other acne treatments, but still aren’t seeing the results they want. Light therapy used to only be available at a dermatologist’s or esthetician’s office, but with the advent of affordable, effective, at-home light therapy device design, blue light for acne is becoming a household treatment that’s non-toxic, non-invasive, and really, really effective.

LED light therapy works by killing acne-causing bacteria at the source, deep beneath the skin’s surface. As people across the nation are searching for more natural, chemical-free alternatives to traditional medical solutions, light therapy fits the bill perfectly. Blue LED light therapy emits specific, clinically-proven wavelengths of light to trigger an all-natural effect in human tissue, killing acne-causing bacteria, decreasing inflammation, and improving skin tone, texture, and clarity from the inside out.

However, not all light therapy is created equal.

Why is Celluma light therapy for acne different?

Celluma light therapy for acne treatment goes above and beyond to achieve better and faster skin-clearing results. Unlike other LED devices available on the market, Celluma is flexible and conforms closely to the treatment area for optimal efficacy.

Because of Celluma’s unique ability to mold to the treatment area to improve cellular performance on a microscopic level, skin cells are able to absorb even more light energy in less time, speeding up the acne elimination and skin healing process. Because of the ability to place the device super close to the skin, Celluma outperforms many even more expensive devices that cannot mold closely to the treatment area. 

Not only is Celluma light therapy naturally effective, it’s also affordable, portable, and hands-free, making it a convenient acne treatment at home or on the go. Celluma has more FDA clearances than any other panel-style light therapy device, so you can rest assured you’re getting high-quality blue light acne treatment that’s backed by science.

Which light therapy device is best for acne treatment?

When it comes to selecting effective light therapy for acne, it all comes down to personal choice. Celluma offers a variety of light therapy devices for specific needs, budgets, and lifestyles, making advanced skin care accessible for all. And unlike other light therapy devices that require multiple panels and accessories to treat a variety of skin conditions, Celluma offers all-in-one, scientifically-backed systems that are as convenient as they are effective.
