The light targets the acne bacteria in the skin. A photodynamic reaction occurs, which performs a selective destruction of the acne. With successive treatments the rate of acne destruction can become greater than the growth of the bacteria leading to a reduction in the inflamed lesions and can prevent further traumatic scarring.
The light is absorbed into the blood vessels, which supply the sebaceous glands. By heating up the capillaries this will reduce the blood flow to the sebaceous glands and decrease the over-production of oil in the skin.
