What is Acne Light Treatment?
As common as acne is, it is one of the most complex conditions where many modalities may be employed to control acne. Although we want clear skin with no more breakouts, the goal of acne treatment is to minimize scarring. In addition to oral and topical medications, we at Summerlin Dermatology, have at our disposal many varieties of light therapy. Blue light is FDA approved for mild acne. Red light is also available. For a more intensive therapy, we may do photodynamic therapy, a treatment that combines Levulan® with Blue light, or laser.
