Could the best way to fight acne be a new device that sucks out your zits?
Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra tests out TheraClear, which uses broadband light and suction. She explains that the broadband light can kill bacteria and decrease inflammation.
Dr. Batra says that using suction on the acne can remove both the acne-causing oil in the skin, along with bacteria on the skin's surface. Along with the addition of the broadband light, Dr. Batra says this procedure can be a "1-2 punch" for acne. She notes that this procedure is safe for any skin type and would be appropriate for mild to moderate acne .
As for any reactions, Dr. Batra says it may cause temporary redness in the area treated. For best results, she suggests that it be done in a series of 4 to 6 treatments 1 to 2 weeks apart.
Out test subject, Malena says the procedure did not hurt and her skin felt little "tingly" while being treated.
