Will blue light laser acne treatment help me get rid of acne ?

I m 15 I have started developing acne from 6th grade ( 3 years ago). Its gotten worse I have tried topical, over the counter lotions cleansers I ve tried ProActive, it dried irritated my skin and Murad Acne Complex. Nothing is working. I know it s my age and hormones. But its really getting out of control. On top of that I have to shave which makes it very much harder. I read about a Blue Light Laser Acne treatment. Do they work? Will I use my facial hair too? Or just the acne I want to get rid of?

Thanks for the query

Blue light has not yet got sufficient clinical trials to know whether or not it helps acne. Howver a very good treatment is Retinoic acid treatment. I suggest u go to a dermat to help u out. IT has a lot of side effects and he has to enlighten u about them before startig it

Have a healthy living
