To date, reports on the safe and effective treatment of severe inflammatory facial acne with the low-fluence 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser are limited. The authors report a case of treatment for severe inflammatory acne in a pregnant Asian female (Fitzpatrick skin type IV) with the low fluence 1064 nm Nd-YAG laser. These findings suggest that this modality may be a safe, effective, and well-tolerated alternative for patients with acne who have contraindications to the use of systemic anti-acne therapies.
