PMID: 33834583.


Acne vulgaris is common dermatologic condition with an estimated prevalence of 80%. Acne has been shown to have a significant impact on patient quality of life and mental health, especially as inflammatory lesions typically occur on cosmetically sensitive areas with the potential for permanent scarring. There have been numerous advances in the treatment of inflammatory acne with light-based and laser devices. This technology permits effective treatment of active acne and scarring, with a short recovery and a decreased side effect profile as compared to medicinal standard-of-care and photodynamic therapies.
