How Aerolase® Can Treat Acne

You may have tried topical treatments and even prescription medications to treat your acne without seeing good results. With Aerolase®, you have an acne treatment option that addresses the underlying causes of acne. Aerolase® can help clear your skin and keep it clear, and it can even improve the appearance of acne scars. 

What is Acne?

Many factors contribute to the development of acne, including genetics. Acne results when the skin over-produces oil from the sebaceous glands. Bacteria feed on this oil, causing inflammation and painful breakouts. Stress, hormones, and other factors can worsen acne.

How Aerolase® Can Treat Acne

Topical acne treatments have limited effectiveness, and oral medications can come with unpleasant side effects. Aerolase® offers a non-invasive, gentle acne treatment that can clear even severe and stubborn acne. The Aerolase® laser uses LightPod Neo (1064nm) light energy in pulses lasting a billionth of a second to treat your acne without causing any overheating or trauma to the skin. 

Aerolase® improves your acne in three ways:

  • Stops the sebaceous glands from over-producing oil
  • Kills acne-causing bacteria
  • Reduces redness and scarring

The applicator never touches your skin, and you will feel almost nothing during your treatment. The laser wavelengths target the deep layers of skin where the sebaceous glands are found.

What Else Can Aerolase® Do?

Aerolase® has many applications other than an acne treatment. This gentle, effective laser also triggers the skin cells to produce more collagen, boosting skin’s smoothness and firmness. Aerolase® safely treats pigmentation concerns, including melasma, and even improves the appearance of scars from past acne breakouts. 

What Results Will I See With Aerolase®?

Most people will need four to six treatments to get acne under control. Because Aerolase® causes no injury to the skin, you can have treatment every one to two weeks. You can maintain your clear skin with maintenance treatments. How often you need these treatments will depend on your acne and the factors that affect it. Regular treatments will keep the skin clear, smooth away old acne scars, and prevent the appearance of new ones.

Is There Any Downtime With Aerolase®?

You will not require any downtime after your Aerolase® treatment. You can return to work or any other activities. Your skin will need sun protection for several weeks following treatment to prevent sun damage.
