Acne affects millions of people in the US and is the most common skin disease, having up to a prevalence of 100% in adolescents in the United States. At Advanced Laser Medspa, we understand that it can be frustrating living with acne and the feeling of hopelessness when none of the acne treatments you have tried work for you. We are proud to offer a variety of treatments for clearing acne with proven efficacy that can help you, no matter the severity.
Microdermabrasion – This is a great treatment for those who have certain types of depressed acne scars that lie flat against the epidermis. Microdermabrasion may also be useful for those who are dealing with active mild-to-moderate breakouts. In addition to removing dead skin cells that can clog pores, the procedure also reduces excess sebum.
Chemical Peels – A chemical peel exfoliates the skin on a deeper level than topical exfoliation. A chemical peel can rejuvenate your skin, produce new skin, and reduce the appearance of acne scars. Peels remove the top layer of skin, unclog pores, and improve the texture of your skin by increasing skin turnover. Salicylic acid peels dive deep into the skin to unclog pores while also skimming the surface to erode blackheads and fade post-pimple marks. Salicylic acid also lingers in the pores and continues to keep them clear over time.
Aerolase Laser Treatments – The Aerolase laser treats acne by heating and shrinking the sebaceous glands leading to lower sebum output. It also kills the acne bacteria, diminishes redness, improves early scarring, and reduces inflammation.
Omnilux™ Red and Blue Light Therapy – This type of therapy offers a way to significantly reduce the appearance of acne in a non-surgical, virtually painless treatment. It works by killing the bacteria which causes acne in the skin in addition to reducing inflammation, oil production, and pore size. Omnilux™ also stimulates new collagen and helps to repair past damage.
Other Acne Treatments – In addition to the above, the following treatments might also be recommended: comedone extractions, blackhead extractions, ablative and non-ablative aesthetic lasers, radio-wave focal energy, and more.
