Condition at a Glance

Is there are treatment option for acne? Acne is one of the most common skin conditions, which affects adolescents, but also adults at almost any age.  Stress, diet, other diseases, and the severity of breakouts can range from   blackheads and white heads, to pustules (zits) and papules, and on to a dense covering of the face or back that can be debilitating to adults and adolescents alike.  During an inflammatory acne breakout, redness develops around the follicular openings. Frustratingly, this redness can persist long after the acne itself. 

 

How Do I Treat This?

Acne lesions cause inflammation and trauma, causing the very tiny, delicate blood vessels in the skin to break. The result is lingering redness, which can take up to a year to disappear, and may never fully clear.

The efficacy of Spectra laser and the Lutronic’s Spectra approach was published in a 20 patient study in 2013, with effective clearing in as little as one to three treatments.

 

What else do I need to know?

More than one session may be required.

Individuals receiving treatment should always wear sunblock if going into the sun and avoid sun exposure which can retrigger pigmentation. Your consultant can assist you in choosing an effective block that is easy to wear

What is Acne?

Acne vulgaris, known simply as acne, is among the most common skin diseases seen in people, especially during adolescence. It can take many different forms including blackheads or whiteheads, pimples and pustules, or scaly red areas, all varying in size, shape, number and concentration. Acne may appear in outbreaks of differing severity for different lengths of time. Scarring may result from acne. Although hormones are often somewhat responsible, as with adolescents, levels of stress and certain bacteria as well as the consumption of certain foods also may play a role. There are also genetic factors at work. Acne is considered unsightly; acne and acne scarring may cause significant reduction in quality of life, depending on the individual patient.
