In 2010, TRIA Beauty—makers of the groundbreaking TRIA laser hair removal system—will be addressing the problem of acne in addition to unwanted hair! Read on to learn more about TRIA's new at-home skin care innovation, including usage directions and device details!

TRIA Acne Device

TRIA Beauty, formerly known as SpectraGenics, announced in a recent press release that it has received over-the-counter FDA clearance for a new hand-held, blue light acne treatment device. Blue light therapy has been an effective acne solution used by doctors and dermatologists for years. Now TRIA is giving acne-prone patients the opportunity to self-administer blue light therapy as often as it's needed—in the comfort and privacy of their own home!

Blue light therapy relies on narrow-band blue light energy, or visible violet light, to reduce the acne-causing bacteria present in patients' skin. The TRIA blue light acne device could potentially equal fewer trips to the dermatologist's office, less money spent on acne products and treatments, and more consistently clear skin!

TRIA Beauty recommends that patients use the blue light device twice a day for about 2-3 minutes to achieve the best results. These usage directions reportedly yielded optimum skin improvements for patients during initial clinical trials.

More About TRIA Blue Light Therapy

According to TRIA's press release, its blue light acne treatment device uses "blue light technology that is 10 times more powerful than other OTC blue light devices". Allegedly, this will lead to more effective treatment results and shorter treatment times overall. TRIA blue light patients should also experience a reduction in breakouts and acne symptoms soon after beginning use.

Set to debut for public use in the spring of 2010, the retail cost of TRIA's acne system hasn't been announced yet. However, since the TRIA blue light system is a hand-held laser device, similar in design to TRIA's hair removal system, the blue light system may be within a similar price range ($500-$600) of the TRIA hair removal laser.

Definitive information on the efficacy, safety and possible risks associated with TRIA's blue light acne system will become available once the device has been in circulation for a while. Initially, the TRIA at-home blue light device will be exclusively sold through the TRIA website and through select cosmetic providers.

Professional Blue Light Therapy for Acne

Until the TRIA blue light system becomes available, or if you'd prefer to have blue light therapy administered by a licensed and highly trained aesthetic specialist, professional blue light treatments are a safe, proven option for eliminating acne.

By entrusting a skin care professional to evaluate your skin's needs and treat your acne accordingly, you will enjoy the benefits of clearer skin, without subjecting yourself to unnecessary risks or uncertainties. An aesthetic specialist can also clue you in to other possible acne treatments that may help you, such as chemical peels, laser skin rejuvenation, IPL photofacial, etc.
