Treatment of Active Acne and Acne Scars With a Single Laser Modality, Using a Novel 0.65 millisecond Pulsed Nd: YAG 1064nm Laser

Yelena Kipervas, DO, Family Care,  Bartonsville, PA

This study was conducted to evaluate the use of a single laser modality to treat two skin conditions simultaneously: clearance of active acne, and reduction of acne scars. A novel Nd: YAG 1064nm laser with 0.65 millisecond pulse duration and a peak power of more than 15,000 watts per pulse was used. 10 subjects with skin type I-IV and an average age of 30 – 5 males and 5 females – were enrolled for the series of 3 treatments 2-3 weeks apart. The laser treatment was well tolerated with no anesthesia or any form of skin cooling. No complications were observed; subjects reported little or no treatment discomfort and a pleasant warming sensation as a result of the laser treatment. Of the 10 subjects, 8 rated their satisfaction as High and 2 rated it as Very High.
