Advancements in laser skin rejuvenation have brought today’s treatment of acne to a new level for improving complexion. With a wide variety of facial products and treatments available, it can be difficult to choose the best solution for treating acne, painful inflammation caused by acne, and scarring.
Acne presents as small to large red bumps on the skin that may be painful. These bumps develop from pores that are clogged due to excess oil production, accumulation of dead skin cells, or bacteria. Acne can damage the skin and leave scars and dark pigmentation spots that become difficult to treat.
Areas of the face, neck, and chest are most affected by this damage to the skin and are usually the areas focused on when administering laser light treatment. With new rejuvenation treatments, laser skin technology rises to the top as a potent treatment for acne and the underlying issues that cause it.
What Is Laser Skin Technology?
Using precision and laser energy, we treat the area of concern with a potent light specifically designed to stimulate a natural healing response that produces collagen.
The concept behind this technology is selective photothermolysis, which refers to the laser’s ability to regulate light frequency to produce heat. When these light beams are focused on the outermost layers of the skin, they can help diminish the look of acne, redness, wrinkles, and scarring due to damaged skin.
Because they don’t break the skin, the laser energy treatments require minimal healing time. Results can be seen within the following weeks after treatment and are long-lasting. With the introduction of new collagen cells, scarring from acne is less likely to appear over time.
Why choose laser skin technology to treat acne? The most commonly used topical medications for acne include retinoids that come in creams, gels, and lotions. The biggest problem these products share is a wide range of potential complications.
Laser treatments have been effective at speeding up the healing of acne lesions. The result is brighter and more rejuvenated skin.
NeoSkin: Complexion Rejuvenation
NeoSkin by Aerolase is the new gold standard for complexion rejuvenation and laser skin treatment. Effective and non-invasive, NeoSkin is used as an acne treatment and to minimize the appearance of pores.
We use NeoSkin’s patented 650 Microsecond Technology to send short pulses of laser energy into the treatment area. These short pulses cannot spread to the surrounding skin, resulting in less discomfort and a faster healing time. With each treatment, acne will diminish and start to clear, bringing that natural glow back to your skin.
The treatment is distributed by heated water pulsed across the skin in the dermis, which leads to the stimulation of collagen. For areas of more concern, a more highly concentrated laser is used to clear redness, acne, and hyperpigmentation. Skin quality will continue to improve over time.
The number of treatments you might need varies, depending on your overall goals and the current condition of your skin. A treatment course of four to six sessions is recommended for most patients.
Additional sessions may be needed to maintain the results, and the treatment can be performed whenever your skin needs rejuvenation.
NeoClear: The New Method of Acne Treatment
NeoClear by Aerolase has stepped up to the challenge of treating acne with unique laser energy technology. By eliminating P. acnes bacteria on the skin, NeoClear’s lasers help fight future breakouts.
When applied to each acne lesion, these lasers reduce inflammation in any current breakout. With the introduction of new collagen cells, acne scars are also diminished, leaving skin clearer and more radiant.
Laser light energy treatment destroys the P. acnes bacteria that causes acne. The high-power laser heats up the sebaceous glands, reducing the size and appearance of acne and preventing further outbreaks. NeoClear by Aerolase also provides relief from pain caused by acne inflammation and pressure on the surrounding areas.
Similar to NeoSkin, the number of treatments will vary from person to person; on average, four to six sessions are usually recommended. Hormones, skincare routines, and lifestyle are all factors in the length of treatment results. Ultimately if an acne breakout occurs, NeoClear can help clear the skin and keep your skin feeling healthy.
How to Choose Between the Two Treatments
The path to clear skin can be achieved through understanding what goals you desire from each treatment and how severe your acne is. If you have slight redness but no scarring, your treatment plan will differ because a less potent energy light will be needed for the treatment.
More severe cases, such as lesions or scarring due to acne, will need a more potent treatment with subsequent treatments to follow.
NeoSkin and NeoClear by Aerolase both take advantage of state-of-the-art laser skin technology that can be performed on all skin types and can also be tailored to meet your skincare goals. Whether you need preventative care or treatment for current imperfections, NeoSkin is a great opportunity for complexion rejuvenation.
While both assist in the rejuvenation of the skin, NeoClear’s unique technology specifically targets acne caused by bacteria and hyperpigmentation. In the end, both treatments will leave your skin feeling refreshed and revitalized.
