The Santa Monica patient struggled with acne in college and resigned herself to living with it. She had tried to use over the counter medication, but none of them had a positive effect on the ance which plagued her. She thought the condition would go away naturally but was beginning to lose hope. She then sought out Dr. U at his Los Angeles clinic.

Dr. U recommended treating the existing acne with multiple sessions using the Spectra laser. The Spectra laser system uses a single wavelength (1060nm) and is safe for all skin tones.
The energy delivered from the Spectra laser can unblock deeply embedded pores, eliminating microbes and burning away the outer sac of highly active sebaceous glands so that they secrete less oil. This acne treatment allows patients to achieve major milestones in the clearing and improvement of their skin.
