Medical Lasers Now Treat Acne Patients


At-home and in-office, lasers are being used to help patients get the clear skin they want.

Lasers are now used medically for resurfacing the skin and in liposuction procedures. Now, patients who suffer from chronic acne troubles can breath easier thanks to lasers available for acne treatment both in their dermatologists' offices and at home.

The Isolaz acne laser is available in the doctor's office. When used, the device applies suction to the skin pulling the pores closer to the light source. The light pulses, and the bacteria which cause the acne are killed. Patients enjoy the immediate improvement as current breakouts are visibly reduced within just one to two days. After just the one treatment, the amount of oil produced by the skin is reduced, and will continue to improve with repeated treatments.

If you prefer the at-home approach the BlueMD blue light laser treatment uses the same proven 405nm - 420nm wavelength used in dermatology offices and medical spas. The FDA approved BlueMD device also uses light energy to kill acne causing bacteria to block the formation of new pimples and treat current breakouts. Consistent use of Blue Light Therapy has also been shown to decrease the amount of oil and sebum on your skin, and may shrink pore size for some individuals.

Another home based option is the TRIA Skin Clarifying System. This device is also FDA-cleared and combines the TRIA Clarifying Blue Light with two advanced topical creams to work as a complete skin care system. The blue light improves the skin's overall health, reducing acne breakouts and giving skin a smoother texture when used for just minutes two times a day.
