Whilst there is no cure for eczema, the Australian Laser and Skin Clinic offers LLLT which assists in the reduction of inflammation, can prevent or reduce the severity and frequency of eczema attacks and aims to provide soothed, repaired and nurtured skin with increased comfort and resiliency.

LLLT can reduce inflammation, stabilise stinging or itching and promote cellular renewal to provide strength and relief to swollen and dry eczema outbreaks.
