Acne and laser treatments

It looks like you have breakouts and redness. We find this responds best to Vbeam and photodynamic therapy with levulinic acid. You will have reduced ance as well as redness after 2-4 treatments. The amount of redness and swelling/inflammation seen in these photos leads me to recommend this.
