Following a personal consultation, our skin care specialist will customize a skin care routine and office treatment program to clear up your acne.
Acne is the most common skin condition treated in dermatology. If you are silently suffering with acne, you are not alone. An estimated 45 million Americans have acne, including many adults. A disorder of the skin’s oil glands and hair follicles, the red, irritated bumps that are the hallmark of acne breakouts are often painfully obvious. Finally, there is a solution that targets three primary causes of acne and delivers clear, healthy skin that helps stop breakouts before they start.
Acne is a disorder resulting from the action of hormones and other substances on the skin’s oil glands, sebaceous glands and hair follicles. Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) are the anaerobic bacterium that causes acne.
The Sciton BBL Pulsed Light Treatment destroys acne by heating the sebaceous glands found in the dermis (the upper layers) of the skin, which reduces oil production, which in turn reduces the active acne. This takes place over the course of repeated treatments within 2-4 weeks. This BBL treatment is a controlled pulse given in a high-speed uniform manner with integrated contact cooling; the result of controlling the skin’s surface temperature is for maximum patient comfort.
