What is acne phototherapy?

. 1 min read

The efficacy of light-based therapies (phototherapy) for the treatment of acne vulgaris remains under investigation. There have been a few articles published on this topic, but its effectiveness remains unclear. It can be used as an add-on to the traditional treatments used for acne (which have proven efficacy), however you should not rely on it as the main form of treatment.

The best way to treat acne is getting an examination and history done by a qualified dermatologist, and getting a personalised treatment plan and prescription.
