Acne is targeted by using specific wavelengths of light that penetrate through the skin eliminating acne-causing bacteria and reducing inflammation of sebaceous glands that contribute to excessive oil production. This unique technology is a non-invasive solution with less collateral effects than oral medication. The procedure is fast and with no downtime. Depending upon the severity a number of treatments may be necessary.
