At PotozkinMD Skin Care and Laser Center, we offer Blue Light Therapy to help some patients improve acne.

How can Blue Light Therapy improve acne?

We understand how frustrating it can be to experience a battle with acne. As an inflammatory skin disorder caused by many different factors, it can start to seem impossible that you will ever see any improvement. Everyone’s skin condition and causes are unique to them, and because of that, everyone responds very differently to treatment modalities.

Blue Light Therapy has been effective in some cases when treating and managing the symptoms of acne. Blue light rays help destroy the bacteria responsible for producing acne in the first place. The rays also act as an anti-inflammatory towards keratinocytes, which are the most common cells in the outer layer of the skin.

It’s extremely imperative that a board-certified dermatologist performs Blue Light Therapy on patients experiencing acne. This treatment method isn’t right for everyone and will not be given to patients with certain allergies and other conditions. Dr. Potozkin and Dr. Ellis will make sure that it is the right treatment for you before recommending it.

What are some benefits of Blue Light Therapy for acne?

Some benefits of Blue Light Therapy for acne are:

  • Safe and unlikely to cause any long-term complications
  • Can be used all areas of the body
  • Does not cause scarring and can be paired with other treatment methods
  • Is not used with any other drugs or antibiotics

During your skin consultation, our team will assess your patient history, examine your skin, and determine if Blue Light Therapy is a recommended treatment method to help you fight acne. 

Our Philosophy

“Our practice philosophy is simple — to deliver the very best care we can in the very best way we can. To us, that means we make each and every patient feel welcomed from the moment that they walk in the door until they leave the office. It means that we listen to what the patient has to say and address those concerns. It means we give advice and recommend treatments based on our extensive training with leaders in the field, our wealth of personal experience, and our commitment to excellence. For our cosmetic patients, it means working with the patient to achieve results that look natural, not overdone or exaggerated. It means that we always strive to do the right thing for the patient, as we value very highly ethics, honesty, and integrity. It means we stand behind what we do and will do everything in our power to get the best results we can for the patient. It means we carefully select the highest quality staff to represent us and help us carry out these goals. Lastly and most importantly, it means that we treat the patient the way we would want ourselves to be treated, with respect and kindness. Because at the end of the day, without all of our loyal patients, we wouldn’t have a practice.”

Extremely caring

"He saved my life! Literally! I've been seeing Dr. Potozkin for over 20 years and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my skin. I had melanoma 20 years ago and he took care of me and just recently I had it again. And might have more, but I'm waiting on the results. But if I do, I am confident that Dr Potozkin and his highly trained staff will take care of me. He is the best in his field. Everyone on his staff is so caring and helpful. I feel so comfortable when I'm there. So please, if you have any skin concerns, make an appointment, don't delay, your life may depend on it."

Efficient & Professional

"Dr. Potozkin and his team are the best! My skin issues/problems have drastically improved since I have been coming to this Doctor-over 5, maybe even 10 years. His staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The office is a flagship store that sells my favorite skin repair and healing products- by SkinCeuticals. I don’t live near this office, but I would never go anywhere else even if it’s closer. Absolutely worth the trip. The results are real!"
