Acne

Big problems can start small...

We all have acne. But sometimes acne can become more than just a few extra pimples. In those times, professional medical help can often be the solution.

Intense pulsed light treatments at Skincredible offer patients an opportunity to improve inflammatory acne without the harsh side effects associated with many traditional acne medications.

Skincredible utilizes a breakthrough pulsed light technology from Alma® Lasers known as AFT (or Advanced Fluorescence Technology). AFT optimizes light emitted from the lamp in the treatment handpiece, selectively amplifying emission(s) in the blue, red, and green portions of the spectrum. This unique filtering enhances dermal penetration without using excessive energy levels, protecting your epidermis from unwanted damage. 

When treating acne, intense blue wavelengths destroy propionibacterium acnes (p/acne) bacteria without damaging the surrounding tissue. The result is a safe, effective treatment directly targeting the source of acne without any additional inflammation of the skin.

By combining multiple therapies – including oral and topical antibiotics,over the counter and prescription creams, microneedling, chemical peels, kinetic dermabrasion and laser therapy – your provider will individually tailor each treatment protocol specifically for you and your skin.

Treatments for acne are generally short. Depending on the severity of your condition, you may require multiple treatments over several months. Most patients see a significant improvement following treatment, though results may vary from person to person. 

We encourage you to speak with your Skincredible provider to determine the best course of action for your individual acne concerns. We know that acne can be a long and difficult struggle, but we are here to help you, guide you and get you to the other side.
