Tired of applying messy lotions, and remembering to take medications as prescribed? If so, you may be wondering if laser therapy is right for you.
The treatment of acne with cosmetic laser is an exciting new development, which has been shown in research to be an effective treatment. The laser beam, delivered through the skin’s surface, triggers the body’s natural defences to fight the bacteria.
The procedure will reduce the severity of current and future breakouts.
