Acne is one of the most common skin conditions worldwide. It can affect anyone but is most common in the adolescent population. It is also fairly common in adults. Severe acne can leave permanent scarring. We can customize the treatment of acne for each individual. We treat acne with oral and topical medications, chemical peels, lasers, and light devices. There are multiple lasers that can be used to treat acne scars.
The NeoClear by Aerolase® Acne Treatment offers patients of all ages and skin types a new safe, effective, and tolerable treatment for acne using advanced 650-microsecond technology. NeoClear is a powerful acne treatment that eliminates the major factors causing acne including excess sebum production, inflammation, and the p. acnes bacteria. NeoClear treatments typically take between 10-30 minutes depending on the severity of acne and the size of the area affected (face, neck, chest, torso). The unique settings of the 650-microsecond device allow energy to penetrate deeply into the skin within a highly safe and tolerable pulse to reduce sebum production, suppress inflammation, and destroy the p. acnes bacteria to help clear current acne breakouts and to stop them in the future. Also, the deep heating energy helps build collagen, which can reduce the appearance of acne scars and leave skin looking radiant. NeoClear is highly safe, effective, and tolerable for all skin types, all ages, and all types of acne.
Depending upon the color, texture, and age of acne scars, several different lasers can be used to improve scars. There is no treatment available at the present time that can remove the scars completely, but they can be improved.
