Abstract

There are many patients with inflammatory acne vulgaris who are not compliant or eligible to consume acne medications, such as oral antibiotics or isotretinoin. PubMed and Medline databases were searched for all related articles. All finding were summarized and chronologically presented in the tables. Nonmedical device-based therapies largely improve the treatment of active inflammatory acne vulgaris, especially in patients who are not compliant or eligible to consume acne medications, do not respond to these drugs over a specified period of time, or do not sustain in the remission phase.
