Laser Treatment For Acne

Acne can cause of whiteheads, blackheads, greasy skin, scarring, and pimples that can be emotionally traumatizing for acne sufferers, lowering their self-esteem and confidence levels.

In this blog, we’re looking at the latest acne treatments available:

  1. Blue Light Therapy
    This therapy goes to the source of your acne problems by killing the acne-causing bacteria known as Propionibacterium acne (P.acne bacteria). The treatment takes about 15 minutes and it is given in about eight appointments over a four week period. It is non-invasive, simple, and painless.
  2. Proactiv
    This not so new acne trend has been around since 1995. You’ve probably seen the commercials on your tv screen before with the celebrity endorsements like Adam Levine and Justin Bieber promoting its use. This three-step system uses the main ingredient Benzoyl to combat your acne and prevent future breakouts. The system is simple and, if used properly, can be extremely effective.
  3. N-light
    The laser uses yellow light to destroy any and all bacteria that creates acne.The yellow light laser gets deeper into the skin ensuring long-term success.
  4. Green Peel
    This all natural facial peel consists of chamomile, marigold, aloe vera, horsetail, algae and ribwort. Based on your needs, the duration and type of pressure of the peel on the skin can be tailored.
  5. Vitamin B5
    This has been used for many years as a good natural acne treatment. Patients usually take approximately 10-20 pills each day. There are newer formulas of B5 that only require one pill per day, so speak with your dermatologist about which option works for you.
