Ask Dr. Collins: My Breakouts Won’t Stop, What Should I Do?
Posted by Chelsea Harris & filed under .
I have tried every product on the shelf for acne, but still have breakouts. What should I do?
More than 90 percent of adolescents will experience at least mild acne, and with back-to-school season upon us, the pressure to have clear skin can build. While using cleansers and topical products to treat breakouts is important, blue light laser therapy can help clear up blemishes and restore skin.
The Sciton Blue Light acne treatment is one of the most effective and non-invasive acne treatments available. Blue light laser therapy uses dual-lamp technology to target sebaceous glands, acne pustules and acne cysts to kill the bacteria that causes pimples. The treatment also diminishes further outbreaks, allows the skin to heal more quickly and has been found to reduce the need for oral medications. The blue light laser treatment is safe if you are using prescription medications.
Treatments can be performed one or two times a week. Many patients see significant improvement in their acne after two to four weekly treatment sessions of blue light therapy. Sciton Blue Light acne treatment also works well on adult acne patients. In addition to blue light therapy, make sure you cleanse your face twice a day and wear limited makeup, especially during hotter months.
