Acne can be embarrassing, unsightly, and steal your confidence – not to mention leave scars and marks. It can also be difficult to get rid of with over-the-counter medications. However, there is another way. South Florida’s Barba Skin Clinic specializes in the most state-of-the-art acne treatments available and can help you get smooth, clear skin with advanced laser treatments to treat and remove acne.
In addition to topical medications and prescriptions, laser treatments can go a long way in treating and preventing acne. Barba Skin Clinic offers Miami-area patients two different types of FDA-approved laser treatment options that can help them achieve faster, better results.
Types of Laser Treatments for Acne
Barba Skin Clinic offers two highly-effective laser systems for the treatment of acne: Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and GentleYAG.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
Using UV-safe light, the IPL Acne Laser reaches deep down into the skin and destroys the most common acne-causing bacteria. Pulses of light quickly flashed on the skin safely permeate the top layer and go down deep, where most moderate to severe acne starts, and destroys the bacteria that causes acne to develop.
It is one of the safest treatment options available, as it is non-invasive and does not use drugs or antibiotics. It also requires no downtime after your treatment and has minimal possible side effects.
IPL is FDA approved for the treatment of acne and has proven to be highly effective in the treatment of moderate inflammatory acne. When used in conjunction with topical acne treatment, studies have found that IPL provides patients with long-lasting acne relief.
The Gentle YAG laser creates a beam of high-intensity infrared light that penetrates deeply into the skin. It stimulates a heating of the tissue, which can kill acne causing bacteria, and contraction of the skin. The heating also stimulates the long-term production of new collagen, leading to tighter, firmer skin.
As an FDA-approved method for acne treatment, the GentleYAG is effective at treating acne, while also giving you smoother more firm skin with minimal side effects, if any. The outer layer of skin is protected by a cooling cryogen spray, meaning minimal to no irritation or redness and no social downtime after treatment.
