Photodynamic therapy (PDT) and/or Spectra Laser appropriate for acne treatment when oral medication is to be avoided
You should see a board-certified dermatologist experienced with photodynamic therapy (PDT) for a customized prescription strength topical acne therapy in addition to a series of at least 4 PDT, 2-4 weeks apart for treatment of resistant acne vulgaris when oral medication is to be avoided. Alternatively, Spectra Laser by Lutronic can be quite helpful.
