 Laser Genesis , Carbon Spectra Peel , Retin-A  For Acne Control

My philosophy in treating teen and adult Acne is target the root cause terminating and avoiding formation of the initial Acne lesion.  The standard therapy involved cleansing the skin, exfoliating with topical medications and oral antibiotics.

In my practice I prefer to use laser therapy to help exfoliate the skin and kill the acne causing bacteria coupled with lower doses of topical medication. On occasion we have no choice but to add oral antibiotics but the majority of my patients have great results using topical agents and the lasers.

 Cystic Acne and Acne Vulgaris both respond well to Laser genesis and the popular Carbon Spectra both are pain free ( a warm sensation is all that is felt) and have no downtime so you can return to class or go out with friends and nobody will know that you had this treatment.

  Acne affects up to 80% of teens and over 30% of adults at some point in their life.  There are many acne remedies and acne treatments yet, Acne remains the most common dermatological disorder . Acne while benign in nature create tremendous personal stress for the sufferer. Events are missed and worse acne scaring can develop in just a few months with certain acne lesions.

What is Acne ?

    Laser genesis and Carbon Spectra Peel reduce the inflammation and number of acne lesions by correcting the underlying cause.  

    A successful treatment plan requires not only strong patient participation but a systematic attack of all the causes of acne simultaneously. I do not believe that one treatment fits all, Acne therapy must be individualized. Treating acne and all its causes at once we can achieve:

    The most successful treatments are those that involve changing the problems causing the acne in the first place. Unfortunately, Acne can not be cured But it can be well controlled!
