Conventional treatments for active acne typically include topical product which are effective but have limitations, along with oral medications; which can be effective too but tend to carry dangerous side effects.

Dermaplane: Hyperkeratosis is a building of dead skin that dulls your complexion and clogs pores. Dermaplaning reduces the dead skin and prevents the pores from becoming blocked which leads to acne.

Advancing the safety and efficacy of light-based modalities for acne, LightPod Neo now sets a new standard with its many scientific advances:

1. The unique ability of using Nd:Yag 1064nm laser is the ability to penetrate deeper compared to any other laser/light modality. This allows the energy to effectively reach the sebaceous glands for maximal heating which will kill the bacteria. The LightPod Neo is uniquely able to treat acne without touching the skin at all. Some of the other technology out there such as IPL are less hygienic because it has to touch the skin, increasing the risk of spreading the P. Acne bacteria to other areas of the skin.

2. The deep-penetrating laser energy also affects the hair shaft and follicle, eliminating the presence of hairs and reducing the potential of ingrown hairs that appear to look like acne.
