Can Laser Treat Your Acne?
- Posted on: Oct 30 2017
Acne isn’t fun for anyone involved— especially your skin. Not only can acne be painful, uncomfortable, and cause scarring, but it can make you so self-conscious that you may not want to even leave the house without the help of a paper bag to place over your face. Lucky for you, depending on the type of acne you have, there are a variety of treatments that we can use.
Treatments vary from patient to patient and include things such as topical medications, over-the-counter products, oral medications, and even laser.
Laser technology used to be a thing of the future— a technology that only Dr. Evil himself could talk about. However, nowadays, laser technology impacts several cosmetic procedures and treatments including as a solution used to treat acne. Here at Callender Cosmetic and Dermatology Center, we may recommend NeoClear by Aerolase.
How Does Aerolase Vary from Other Lasers?
The best way to get rid of your acne? Stop it from forming before it starts. The best way to do that? Destroying acne-causing bacteria. The main benefit of NeoClear by Aerolase is that it does just that— destroys the acne bacteria which causes your breakouts while also reducing the likelihood of future breakouts. Another unique aspect to this type of laser compared to others is that while getting rid of bacteria, new collagen is simultaneously generated which helps to diminish acne scarring.
During your initial consultation with our staff at Callender Cosmetic and Dermatology Center, we will help determine what treatment is best for you and your specific type of acne. If Aerolase is a good option for you, we will give you more information and help you schedule your first appointment. On average, we like patients to receive about 4-6 treatments to help maintain their clear skin.
