What are the risks and potential complications from Light Treatment For Active Acne?
Depending on the type of equipment used, there may be no pain at all, or occasionally some mild stinging or burning may be noticed during the procedure, and the area treated may feel hot for 15 minutes or so after treatment. Most patients will experience skin redness which will fade over the next hour or so and can be covered with light make up. Some systems appear to be free of any other side effects, whilst others can cause post – treatment complications that may include blistering of the skin at the treatment site which can very rarely lead to mild scarring and changes in skin colour or pigment. You need to discuss, in detail, the potential for these risks with the particular system that your practitioner is using.
