What We Can Do for Your Acne
Your acne will be evaluated by our doctors, who will then recommend an individualized regimen involving a treatment or combination of treatments. There are a variety of treatments for controlling moderate acne, including creams, washes, and medications. If your moderate case of acne is not responding to medications, or other conventional treatments, options for treatment may include:
Blue Light Therapy for Acne
Blue light therapy is a non-invasive therapy during which patients are exposed to a light source (high-intensity, narrow band blue-light) in order to treat mild to moderate acne. Blue-light does not contain ultraviolet light, is extremely safe and affects problematic areas only, and is a natural treatment choice as well as a painless one.
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) for Acne
PDT is a non-invasive treatment combining light and a special light-activated solution. The procedure involves applying the light activated solution to the area to be treated. The solution causes the skin to become more receptive to the light therapy. A specific wavelength light is used to activate the solution. Targeted cells are destroyed as well as acne activity.
Silk Peel™ Microdermabrasion
Afterglow’s Microdermabrasion with Silk Peel™ Infusion is a non-invasive technique that works on the top layer of the skin (the epidermis). The procedure exfoliates the skin by essentially removing dead skin cells, clearing clogged pores of oil and dirt, and killing bacteria.
A skin care regimen will be recommended by the physician (most likely as part of a comprehensive skincare protocol) in combination with other treatments.
