It depends on the Laser

Cooltouch and Smoothbeam help to shrink the oil glands and can put acne in remission for a while (and help the scars too). It does not work in all patients (nothing is ever 100%), but it is a good option for those wanting to avoid oral medications. Isolaz is another option that combines pneumatic suction to clean pores, blue light to kill bacteria, and IPL to reduce redness and inflammation.
