What can be done to treat adult acne?

What can be done to treat adult acne?

Not a week goes by when I don’t hear numerous patients complaining of adult acne breakouts. Fortunately, my patients have been getting great results with Sciton’s Forever Clear Broad Band Light (BBL). It’s a genuinely innovative alternative to topical antibiotic treatments. In one 15-minute session, a blue light wavelength (420 nm) is passed over the affected areas to attack acne-producing bacteria in the pores. The treatment is completely customizable – if a patient’s skin is inflamed and reddish in the area around the acne breakout, I’ll include another treatment utilizing green light (560nm) to reduce or remove any redness. I might also use orange light (590nm), which can minimize the production of oil if patients have cysts.
Dr. Mark SchwartzI suggest that patients undergo a series of six to eight weekly treatments, with occasional touch-ups every six months. These treatments are easy to tolerate, with only minimal discomfort and almost no down-time. Most patients are red for an hour or two immediately afterward, but they can always just apply a bit of makeup to the area and go on with their daily routine.

Winter Skin Solutions

Winter Skin Solutions:

The cold and windy wintertime is ahead of us and that can mean dry, flaky, and irritated skin. The majority of clients who wish to hydrate their skin are not sure how and when to use a serum as opposed to a cream; the overwhelming amount of moisturizers on the market can cause much confusion. With the correct professional treatments and targeted homecare, winter skin can be glowing, moisturized, and healthy!

First of all, there are some wonderful treatments that go hand in hand with winter, when the sun is not as bright and days not as long. While collagen facials can hydrate and replenish moisture, there are some specific treatments that can be added to a spa’s menu for the winter season. Many clients suffer from hyperpigmentation, varicose veins, and unsightly hair, all of which require a series of treatments. The best time to start clients on a series of six is while we are still in the cold, winter months.
