Newest Laser Technology for Acne

Posted in Acne Scars, Laser Acne Treatments by . | Leave a Comment

Clear Clinic in New York City prides itself on keeping up with the most sophisticated laser technology for acne.  The truth is that over-the-counter and prescription medications have not changed much over the past few years.  Laser technology, however, has changed by leaps and bounds.  Active acne can now be treated quickly with laser treatments for acne and acne scars can finally be permanently reduced with laser resurfacing treatments.

Dr. Schweiger explains that, “Laser technology continues to progress, helping us to treat acne better and faster.  Many patients who have not responded to prescription acne medications in the past will see tremendous improvement after starting laser therapy for acne.  We see patients who have been to numerous dermatologists have wonderful results after starting a laser acne regimen.”

Here is what you need to know about the laser treatments available for acne and acne scars:

Photodynamic Therapy: this light-based treatment uses blue LED light to activate a medication called Levulan.  Levulan reduces sebum production, therefore preventing the p. acnes bacteria from causing inflammation in the follicles.

Isolaz Acne Treatment: this treatment uses a gentle vacuum to clean out the pores; while the pores are open, a laser is used to kill the p. acnes bacteria inside of the pores.

Red & Blue LED Light Therapy: light therapy is antibacterial and antiinflammatory, without any downtime.  Light therapy is often combined for other laser or light treatments for maximum efficacy.

Fractional CO2 Laser: this laser requires only one treatment for improvement of acne scars.  It pokes microscopic holes in the skin’s surface, which stimulates the production of healthy collagen to fill in pitted scars.

Fraxel Laser: this laser uses an erbium laser energy to poke microscopic holes in the skin’s surface, to stimulate production of healthy collagen to fill in acne scars.  It requires four treatments to get the results of one fractional CO2 laser treatment, but has only minimal downtime after each treatment.
