Light- and laser-based treatments won't cure active acne, so you may see additional breakouts after a laser procedure. Laser treatments may temporarily worsen acne, but they can ultimately be beneficial for many patients. Combining light and heat energy improves the appearance of both active acne and acne scars, which are treated deeper in the skin.

Yes, laser is not great for acne.
Other treatments like Kleresca will be in the US in 2017, however red light, blue light, V Beam, IPL and Omnilux are all light based treatments that can help reduce, but not cure acne.
All the best,
