Why isn't blue light acne treatment working for me?

I've been using blue light acne treatment for like 2 months and I haven't seen no improvement what's so ever. I thought it is suppose to kill 99.99% of your acne. why isn't it working?

I am not surprised about this. This is a very weak treatment for acne. Acne can be very stubborn and often requires multiple modalities including lasers, topicals, peels, and orals. I would seek another opinion about your acne.

Without photos it is difficult to comment but it may mean that you need oral antibiotics or Accutane therapy. Please consult a specialist in acne.  You want to prevent acne scars before they happen. Best, Dr. Green
