If you suffer from moderate to severe acne and are having little luck with topical skin treatments, photodynamic therapy aesthetic treatments in Northwest Arkansas may be an exciting solution.
Patients who do not respond to conventional acne treatments can benefit from the BLU-U® blue light therapy, which kills the P. acnes bacteria that causes acne.
Frequently Asked Questions
