Acne isn’t just a teenage nuisance — it can affect people of all ages at any time. Frequent acne breakouts can be troublesome and difficult to control, and the appearance of acne can affect a person’s self-confidence. There are many conventional treatments available, from mild creams and washes to strong medications — even antibiotics. Talk to the medical professionals at M.D. Laser Studio about your options, including products like the Clarsonic Cleansing Brush and the Obagi Clenziderm program.
In addition, advanced light therapies are available for the treatment of acne, including lasers and light emitting diodes. At M.D. Laser Studio, we’ve had great success using BLU-U Blue Light in conjunction with a topical medicine called ALA. Treatments typically take about an hour and are performed weekly. In as little as two treatments acne can be controlled for 6 months to as long as 22 months.
For those few unfortunate folks that have permanent acne scarring, lasers can dramatically improve their appearance. Different treatments are available depending on severity. Whether it be active acne or acne scarring, there are always options.
