How To Get Rid of Acne

Acne is a very common skin problem that occurs when hair follicles under the skin become clogged. The pores then get clogged with dead skin cells and oil, which can lead to acne breakouts. Acne most often affects the faces of men and women in their teens and twenties, but can appear on the back, chest, and shoulders well through adulthood. If you are one of the millions of people wanting to get rid of their acne, Skinatomy Laser Clinic has some solutions that can help you!

What Treatment Options Are Available For Acne?

Because there are a variety of causes of acne breakouts, there should also be solutions that specifically address these causes. Whether your acne is caused by hormones, stress, excess sebum production, or bacteria, there is a treatment that can help. Our treatments include:

  • Levulan ® Kerastick ® Blue Light PDT Therapy
  • Chemical Peels
  • Blue Light Laser

Levulan ® Blu-U PDT Therapy

Levulan® Blu-U PDT Therapy is a type of photodynamic therapy that uses Levulan® topical photosensitizing agent that is activated using a specific light wavelength, blue light. It is non-invasive and minimizes the effects of acne, rosacea, scarring and other skin imperfections. 

Levulan® Blu-U PDT Therapy works by killing the bacteria that causes acne. It unclogs pores through exfoliation and then inhibits oil production. The Levulan® topical agent makes the areas of acne more receptive to the photodynamic therapy of the blue light. The blue light reaches deep enough into the skin to target the problem areas without damaging the surrounding tissue.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure in which a chemical solution, such as alpha hydroxyl acid, is applied to the skin to remove the top layers of dead skin cells and allow smoother, younger-looking skin to grow back in its place.   There are many benefits to using chemical peels and they are safe for all skin types and colors.

Chemical peels are an excellent treatment for acne and acne scarring because they can help control acne breakouts and help rid you of the unfortunate scars that acne often leaves behind. Peels are very effective at shrinking the pores of your face which get enlarged when clogged with dirt and bacteria. Chemical peels seep into the epidermis to remove the dirt and bacteria. Once the dirt is removed, the pores shrink back to the normal size.

Blue Laser Light

The BLU Light Laser treatment is a gentle and non-invasive, FDA-approved acne treatment method. It uses a laser to gently remove bacteria within the sebaceous glands that cause acne. It targets the glands that are deep within the skin without causing irritation or drying it out. After a series of blue light treatments, the acne will begin to clear up and future breakouts can be avoided.

Treatments can be done in 20 to 30 minutes. They are painless and there is no downtime associated with them. Periodic maintenance treatments are recommended once your skin has cleared up.
