Acne Treatments

We are pleased to offer a comprehensive approach to acne that includes at-home skincare solutions and in-office treatments.

These options seek to destroy p. acnes bacteria, deep clean pores, reduce inflammation, and shrink oil gland for a healthy andblemish-free complexion.

How Can Acne Treatments Reduce Breakouts?

There are several safe and effective laser acne treatments to consider.

Isolaz gently extracts pore-clogging debris with a vacuum mechanism. This is combined with light-based energy that targets and kills p. acnes bacteria.

The synergistic effects of Blue Light and Red Light Therapy ward off acne causing bacteria. They also offer anti-inflammatory properties to reduce swelling and soothe skin.

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) consists of applying a topical cream, which is then activated by blue light. This process results in the destruction of p. acnes bacteria and miniaturization of sebum glands that produce oil.

It’s important to note, that these acne treatments are typically performed as a series and may be combined with a specific skincare regimen.
