Title: Lasers and light therapy for acne vulgaris.
Bhardwaj SS, Rohrer TE, Arndt K
Publication: Semin Cutan Med Surg. 2005 Jun;24(2):107-12.

The authors reviewed various laser devices, including those that interact directly with certain chemical compounds called porphyrins produced by Propionium acne (the acne causing bacteria) and those that target the sebaceous glands; as well as other devices using light and radiofrequency to treat acne. Although the authors note that these devices are promising, they still need long-term data and more studies.
