Blue Light Therapy was developed by Dr. Simon Ourian, M.D. and Dr. Bob Ourian, M.D. to treat a variety of conditions including dark spots on the face, melasma or pregnancy mask, freckles and hyper pigmentation, varicose veins, spider veins and rosacea.
Alternatives to Blue Light Therapy can be Fotofacial Photofacial Pulse Light laser.
Before the Blue Light Therapy a photosensitive gel is applied to the skin. Few minutes later a series of intense light is emitted over the entire face. The tiny capillaries and any colored material on the surface of the skin (freckles age spots, hyper pigmentation) is heated and the colors are either absorbed or evaporated. The energy of the light creates micro pores in the capillaries causing them to shrink. this process is repeated in 3 to 4 week intervals. This special light, which is different than laser treatments, emits light over many wavelengths allowing the light to penetrate to all the levels of the skin where abnormal easily dilated vessels can be found.
If you have generalized redness on your skin, broken capillaries, pregnancy mask, discolorations, shallow acne scars, sun spots, sun damage, freckles, dark circles under the eyes, hyper pigmentation, pigmentation problems and do not wish to have a long procedure or a lengthy downtime…Blue Light Therapy may be the right treatment for you.

Blue Light Therapy is considered very safe. However, a transient pigmentation change, swelling, and discomfort in the treated area may be expected. A thorough evaluation by the treating physician is necessary to ensure optimal results.
There is little to no recovery time needed. Most patients return to work the same day or the following day.
The level of discomfort during Blue Light Therapy is different for every person and also varies by the location and surface area to be treated. Many patients do not request any pain medication during treatment and relate the discomfort as comparable to a sunburn. Other patients will appreciate a topical or more extensive anesthetic. We will discuss your options with you based upon your own tolerance and the specific areas to be treated. Fotopeel and Coolaser ™ technique may cause the skin to became red or pink with mild to moderate discomfort for a few days following the procedure. Although over the counter medication is usually sufficient, your physician may recommend alternative pain relief options to keep you comfortable.
