What about the home use acne devices?

What do you think of home high frequency devices for acne?

It depends a little on which one but, in general, they can help individual lesions resolve a little faster, when used as directed.  If you’re someone who gets occasional acne lesions, this might be a good option.  If you’re someone with a lot of lesions, the devices are slow, and take a lot of time to cover an area.  Better to use topical medications that can cover the whole area.  They also require batteries that are annoying to keep replacing. Here are some acne treatment options.  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
