We all get tempted to squeeze a blemish to treat the problem, but with a risk of infection and scarring is there a better way? Heat treatments promise faster and safer blemish treatment, but how do they work?
Heat treatment devices attack a blemish to reduce the size and appearance in several ways. Heat works to increase blood circulation and promote healing. Heat therapy can also help bring an infected blemish to a head so that it can be drained. The concentrated heat helps kill the bacteria causing the blemish, and speed up the healing process while reducing inflammation.
For people with sensitive skin that find topical acne treatments too drying Heat Treatment devices can be a great way to battle acne. Here are a few popular treatment devices that use a heat and light technology to fight blemishes.

The Klima Magic Wand uses heat and light technology to fight blemishes. Along with a promise to be one of the fastest acne treatment devices it also has a permanent tip saving you money with no replacement tips needed.
The Klima Magic Wand is a hand-held, battery operated device which makes pimples disappear fast. Using twin technologies of gentle heat and specified blue wavelength light. When the bio-compatible tip has direct contact with a blemish on the skin, it transfers heat deep into the follicle at a safe and pre-set temperature. It also zaps the blemish with specified-wavelength blue light. Both the heat/shock response and the radiated light aggravate the active proteins that keep the blemish thriving. This causes self destruction of the acne lesion, reducing inflammation and allowing the skin to return to a healthy condition. How effective is it?
