By the time patients visit the Clear Clinic, they have often tried numerous acne treatments at home and sometimes they have even visited other dermatologists. When they see us, they want their acne gone quickly. The truth is that, even though prescription medications can be very effective for treating acne, they can take two to four weeks to even START working! That is a long time to wait when you want your acne gone yesterday.
Luckily, there is a faster option available for our patients at the Clear Clinic. Dr. Schweiger explains that, “We often recommend a combination of laser and light treatments, which are performed in the office, to be used together with prescription medications for the most comprehensive acne treatment regimen. Patients undergoing a series of laser and light treatments will often see improvement after their first or second treatment. The is the fastest acne treatment available.”
For most patients, Dr. Schweiger and the other practitioners at the Clear Clinic recommend a combination of Photodynamic Therapy, Red and Blue LED Light Therapy, and the Isolaz Laser. The most popular package of treatments is called the Moderate Acne Package. It is a series of five treatments, performed each week for five weeks. Some patients require a more specialized package, often including a medical facial, chemical peel, or IPL treatment. Clear Clinic prides itself on its large variety of laser and light treatments for acne. Each patient will receive an acne regimen specific to the needs of their skin.
