If you have you exhausted topical agents for acne, and you are looking for another solution… you’ve come to the right place.

Light therapy is effective for active acne
Light therapy is a potential solution for active acne. Although the exact science behind the treatment is poorly understood, several theories are proposed:
Blue light treatment is absorbed by porphyrins (biological pigments) inside the bacteria C. acnes, killing the bacteria that causes acne.
Red light also activates porphyrins, and penetrates into the deeper skin layers
Thermal damage to sebaceous glands, decreasing sebum production (which can clog pores)

Scars that result from acne are often a permanent and unwelcome reminder of an original struggle with acne. These scars can be of two main varieties: skin depressions (depressed, atrophic), or raised (hypertrophied, keloid) scars sometimes called icepick scars.
For minor acne scars, microneedling is an excellent solution. For some clients with more significant acne scars, our state-of-the-art laser in Lexington, MA offers acne scar treatment with advanced hybrid fractional skin resurfacing. This harnesses our skin’s amazing capacity for self healing by creating thousands of micro punctures, inducing the skin to create more collagen, and restructure the scar.
