Light Therapy for Acne and Wrinkles
You may have heard about a high-tech sounding treatment for acne and wrinkles: Light-emitting diode (LED) therapy.

As with any light-emitting for skin, there are pros and cons with to consider, whether it's done at a doctor’s office or with a handheld device in the privacy of your own home. In either scenario, if you're patient and don't expect miracles, the research is promising!
