Acne is a common condition affecting
teenagers and adults. It consists of comedones, commonly known as
white/black heads and inflammatory papules. Its appearance, however
trivial, often interferes with their quality of life. Treatment
of acne must be early and vigorous.

4 options to help you clear your acne.
- Acne phototherapy, which is a
new award winning FDA approved technology called clearlightTM

inflammation. This is an alternative modality of treatment and
there is no need to take any antibiotics or other medication such
as Isotretinoin. The therapy is safe and effective.
