Zapping acne with blue light

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- No pills, no doctors, no pain.  Imagine treating acne at home with nothing more than a blue light.  One company says it's possible.

Their product is called the Tria Skin Clarifying System.  They say the blue light causes your body to kill the acne bacteria, in essence, clearing up your zits.

A doctor who's a paid consultant for the company says you can expect a 70 percent improvement in about two weeks, but only with certain types of acne.

The system costs about $300, and replacement cartridges are $40 a piece.
