In brief: Very similar results
There are many devices that can help with acne.
These devices use controlled heat to diminish sebum production by the oil gland and to kill acne causing bacteria. (nd:yag) uses laser light to generate heat while the (e-light) uses a combination of optical and radiofrequency energy. While effective, they are not a first line treatment and are best used when good topical skin care is not effective.
