Clinical Trial Results: 80% average lesion reduction one year after treatment series.

Unlike traditional pharmaceuticals like Accutane, the Accure laser offers our patients a medicine-free and effective alternative.

How does the Accure laser treat acne?
The Accure Laser System is a treatment that uses a specific laser wavelength to treat acne. The treatment targets overactive oil glands (sebaceous glands) that produce excess sebum, one of the root cause of acne. By reducing the activity of these glands, the number of sebaceous glands that produce oil decreases, improving the appearance of facial or body acne while keeping the skin healthy.
Most patients notice a reduction in acne lesions several weeks after their first treatment. The results continue to improve over time. Studies have shown that after 4 Accure treatments, performed 2-6 weeks apart, there is an average reduction of 80% in acne lesions.
