Laser treatment for Acne


What is Acne?

Acne is caused by the P Acnes bacteria, which resides in your sebaceous gland. As the gland secretes sebum to lubricate your skin and hair, the bacteria cause infection.

How does laser treatment for acne work?

The yellow light from the Dual Yellow laser destroys the P Acne bacteria, and shrinks the sebaceous gland
to reduce the production of sebum.


The Dual Yellow laser is the only laser which uses photodynamic therapy to destroy bacteria, without damaging surrounding tissue. It does this by activating Proto Porphyrin 9 (PPIX) which exists in P Acne bacteria. PPIX is light sensitive at 578nm.

This treatment helps in reducing active acne and speeds up healing time of existing acne.
