What Treatments are Available for Acne?

Acne can affect men and women of all ages, causing lumps, bumps and painful pimples to appear on the skin. If left untreated, acne can plague people for many years, leaving them with scarring that can last a lifetime. If you suffer from adult acne and dream of having a smooth, clear complexion, then it might be time to consider a non-surgical acne treatment from Manhattan Aesthetics.

Effective Acne Treatments

Here at Manhattan Aesthetics, our highly trained and board-certified doctors can offer you not one, but two, non-surgical and effective acne treatments – Aerolase®  and chemical peel. Both of these acne treatments have a proven track record with treating active acne and have helped hundreds of people to eliminate their acne for good. 

Aerolase® Treatments

Aerolase® is an innovative light treatment that uses a powerful but gentle laser called a LightPod Neo (1064nm). This laser pulses at one-billionth of a second delivering light deep into the collagen of the skin, promoting regeneration, and helping to solve a number of skin conditions including hyperpigmentation, sun spots, rosacea, stretch marks, fine lines, wrinkles, and acne. For active acne sufferers, the Aerolase® treatment can be used to sterilize and dry up problem sebaceous glands that secrete acne-causing bacteria. 

Chemical Peels

The second non-invasive acne treatment offered by Manhattan Aesthetics is a chemical peel. Chemical peels work by gently resurfacing the layers of the skin using a fine balance of mild abrasives. This process triggers the body’s healing response, promoting faster cell turnover, and helping to create a smoother surface to the skin. Chemical peels can be personalized depending on each individual’s needs, and for acne, the two most common options are the VI Peel and the AHA Peel. The peel that is right for you will depend on a couple of different factors that can be discussed with your doctor.

Benefits of Acne Treatments

The most obvious benefit of acne treatments, such as Aerolase® or a chemical peel like the VI peel or the AHA peel, is that they can dramatically reduce the appearance of active acne, helping to minimize scarring and providing patients with a more even skin tone. But in addition to treating the physical symptoms of acne, these two acne treatments are also non-surgical, meaning that they involve minimal, if any, downtime so that you can get back to your normal routine as soon as possible. As popular anti-aging treatments, both Aerolase® and chemical peels also help to improve the overall health of the skin too. 

Am I a Candidate for Acne Treatments?

Both Aerolase® and chemical peel treatments are both highly adjustable making them safe and effective for most skin types and the majority of cases of adult acne, however, to make sure that you are a suitable candidate, one of our expertly qualified doctors, Dr. Morris Westfried who is a double board-certified dermatologist, will provide you with a consultation to assess your skin condition and to make sure that the acne treatment is right for you.
