Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. It causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples. Variety of light and laser therapies, including LED Light therapy, PDT, IPL, Nd: YAG, and RF w/ Micro-needle, treat can be used to improve acne. Unfortunately, no single laser or light treatment can treat every type of acne, such as pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, acne cysts, and acne nodules. That’s why different types of lasers and light therapies are used to relieve and treat acne.
Clinical studies show that lasers and other light treatments can reduce acne. However, rarely can these treatments alone clear acne completely. For the best results, multiple treatments deliver significantly better results than a single treatment. Also, a dermatologist may recommend using another acne treatment, such as medicine that you apply to your skin.
