Acne – Pulsed dye laser

  • In 2003 Lancet published a double-blind study in which 41 adults with mild to moderate facial acne were treated with either a single pulsed-dye laser treatment or a sham treatment (control group). After 12 weeks the pulsed-dye laser group had a 53 percent reduction in acne lesions compared to 9 percent in the control group. The most significant improvements were seen after 4 weeks. [Source]
  • In 2010 The Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology published a study which compared pulsed dye laser (PDL) treatments and intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments in a split-facial trial of 20 patients. The IPL treated sides of the face showed greater immediate results, though acne began to recur 8 weeks into treatment. Conversely, the PDL treatment lead to more gradual improvements that lasted 8 weeks after treatment. [Source]
