How Photodynamic Light Therapy Can Help Clear Acne

Acne results from the obstruction and inflammation of the sebaceous glands, and it affects 80% of the human population. Acne scarring is a common problem and severe scarring often cannot be covered by makeup and need professional treatment for removal. To avoid acne scarring, treating acne early is important. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a non-invasive therapy that utilizes light treatments along with an application of a photosensitizing agent.
