Acne is a really annoying affliction that no one wants to have. It is caused by high levels of sebum, an oily substance produced by the sebaceous glands in the skin. This is why it’s particularly common among people with greasy hair and people who are overweight.
Acne can lead to further complications if left untreated, including scars, which are caused by damage to the skin when acne tries to heal. With laser therapy, these scars can be removed with less pain and in a shorter period of time than traditional treatment methods.

Levulan (for intense cystic acne):
Levulan (Aminolevulinic acid 20%) is a naturally occurring photosensitizing compound, which has been approved by the FDA to treat pre-cancerous skin lesions called actinic keratosis. Levulan is applied to the skin and subsequently “activated” by a specific wavelength of light. This process of activating Levulan is termed Photodynamic Therapy. The purpose of activating the Levulan is to reduce pre-cancerous skin lesions. The treatment may improve the appearance of the skin and other signs of photoaging, decrease acne, reduces sebaceous hyperplasia, decrease oiliness of the skin, and improve texture/smoothness by minimizing pore size.
