Objectives: Its purpose was to evaluate the efficacy of light-emitting diodes in the treatment of inflammatory acne.
Background: Acne vulgaris is a prevalent skin condition. Acne vulgaris can be treated in a variety of ways. Phototherapy is one of the most effective acne treatments.
Methods: This research involved 40 acne vulgaris patients (15 men and 25 women). All subjects received eight treatments with a low intensity continuous infrared diode laser (808nm) wavelength and frequency (500HZ). The evaluation was performed at the commencement of the sessions and three months after the therapy was discontinued.
Results: Acne lesions were less severe (non-inflammatory and inflammatory lesion counts). Patients were pleased with the laser therapy since there was less recurrence.
Conclusion: An effective non-invasive therapy for acne vulgaris is eight sessions with a low power continuous infrared diode laser.
