This comprehensive facial treatment have proven to be extremely effective; and, in many instances, the only treatment modality needed for many of our patients who are acne prone. The truth is, even if you are not acne prone, periodic medical grade facial treatment is probably the best way to keep your skin optimally healthy and looking its best.
At the end of 5 intense facial treatments, patients are re-evaluated and given the option of adding laser therapy to their regimen.
Acne laser treatments work by targeting the two remaining root causes of acne which are the
1. overproduction of oil and
2. bacteria in your skin.
While skin calming component of the facial treatment help with overproduction of oil and blue light therapy with controlling the bacterial load, laser therapy treats these two root causes at a whole new level of efficacy.
In our practice for the past 15 years, we have been using Sciton 1319 laser to
1. effectively shrink down the sebaceous glands and at the same time
2. kill the common bacteria which cause the acne breakouts.
In addition the Sciton 1319 has proven to be one of the golden standard of laser treatments for stimulating new collagen to minimize acne scarring as well as to improve old acne scars.
In addition, at the same setting, we use Sciton BBL with 590 filter to provide “acne photo facial” to hasten the clearing of uneven tone and blemishes associated with acne as well as tone down persistent post inflammatory pigmentation issues seen in acne patients with darker complexion.
