Soprano and PDT Questions

September 22, 2008
hey doctor i have two questions

1. Does the soprano diode laser work in skin types 2, 3(light skin) or just dark skin because i heard gentlelase is better for ligher skin. will you get the same results?
2. Does Photodynamic acne treatmeant clear acne 100% or just for a couple of months?
ive been on accutane twice and my acne keeps coming back.

Hi,

1. soprano works very well for light and dark skin. the advantage of the soprano treatment is that it is close to painless. sometimes it takes one or two more sessions with the soprano, but it is worth it because every other laser that i have tried is very painful.

2. nothing will clear your acne 100%. pdt works well, but acne is a complex issue - it varies so much with the individual that it is very difficult to make predictions of how long the effects last with the treatments we currently have.
pdt is worth a try, in my opinion. i would combine the pdt treatment with antibiotics (minocycline works well). also, if you have active acne, i would get an extraction facial a few days prior to the pdt.
