Contrary to popular belief, acne isn’t just a teenage problem; rather, it can afflict people of all ages. In fact, it is the most common skin condition experienced by adults. If you have struggled to achieve or maintain a clear complexion, there is no reason to despair. No matter if you suffer from whiteheads, blackheads or pustules, you have some medical skin treatment options to help treat your breakouts.
One of the largest contributions to acne is the accumulation of damaged areas that are reinfected before they have the opportunity to heal. This healing can be promoted with the application of specialized peel treatments to remove the outmost layer of skin and encourage the growth of healthy skin cells in their place. The exact treatment you receive will depend on a number of factors such as your skin type, the amount of damage, and other associated skin conditions.
Sometimes treating your acne is as easy as shining a light on it. Photodynamic therapy combines light treatment with topical medication that is activated by the light source to provide treatment to afflicted areas of the skin. Like chemical peels, it kills and clears off infected skin cells on the top layer of skin to give the epidermis an opportunity to produce healthy replacement cells in a fresh, smooth layer of skin. The duration of the treatment may be adjusted to meet the severity of your acne.
If other treatments and topical medications have not helped in the past, BLU-U Acne Therapy may be an option for patients with a moderate case of acne. Unlike the photodynamic treatments, the treatment is with a blue light emitter that does not require additional medication.
