What Lasers Are Used to Treat Acne?
Doctor Answers (1)
Cooltouch C3, Smoothbeam, Isolaz
These three have a good track record improving active acne and are FDA approved. I have used both the Cooltouch and Isolaz in my office and like both. Talk to your dermatologist about the differences between the technologies, as one is better for darker skin than the other.
