Type 2 acne is similar to Type 1 acne. The major difference is Type 2 is painful to touch and the swelling and redness are more pronounced. Pimples can range from small to medium sized red bumps that are painful to the touch.
It is important to practice good personal hygiene and avoid touching the inflamed pimples. Most people cannot help popping their pimples which lead to scarring and infection.
Treatment of choice is over-the-counter topical antibiotics and topical retinoids. You may also opt to have prescription oral antibiotics if acne is not responsive to topical treatment.
Those who do not want to take oral medication may also elect to get Light therapy. It is a treatment often done in clinical settings but has been made more affordable and sustainable by Trophy Skin.
BlueMD LED Panel is an accessory you can buy with the RejuvaliteMD High-Power Ageless LED Treatment. BlueMD has a panel with blue, red, and infrared lights.
The Blue light penetrates the skin, targeting the acne-causing P. acnes bacterium and causes it to starve and die off. The red and (invisible) infrared lights help ease the inflammation brought about by acne. Light therapy helps skin heal faster compared to just waiting to complete the natural healing process of acne.
