April 1, 2004

Washington - The recently concluded American Academy of Dermatology conference witnessed the first published report documenting the safety and efficacy of the Smoothbeam laser treatment for inflammatory facial acne. Building on previous research that showed the 1,450-nm diode laser to be effective for treating inflammatory acne on the back, a team of researchers led by Paul M. Friedman, M.D., showed the same type of laser to be safe and effective for treating facial acne vulgaris.
