“Acne is one of the most common and stubborn skin problems. Regardless of skin type or lifestyle, approximately 80% of the population will suffer from acne at some point in their lives. Acne is common in both teens and adults.”- comments Jeff Nourse, President of Pure Med Spas.
Many people find current treatment options ineffective and others develop problematic side effects. Additionally, the cost and duration of acne treatment with topical medications and oral antibiotics make standard therapy far from ideal.
Acne can affect us at almost any age, typically it begins during adolescence, when hormonal changes cause the enlargement and obstruction of sebaceous glands in the skin. Consequently, many people experience an abnormal proliferation of bacteria, predominantly propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes). This typically causes painful, inflamed lesions that can appear on the face, chest, back, limbs and virtually any other part of the body.
While most individuals will eventually outgrow their acne, some will remain susceptible to it throughout their lives. Even for thaose who no longer generate new symptoms, permanent scarring frequently results.
Photodynamic acne treatment (PDT) also called photodynamic therapy or “ALA/PDT treatment is a new procedure that treats resistant, hard-to-treat active acne as well as older acne scars. This procedure combines a blue light and a special light-activated topical photosensitizing agent called Levulan. Levulan is a 20% solution of Aminolevulinic Acid (ALA). ALA is a natural product found in all humans throughout the body. This combines interaction of the solution and the light is what targets and destroys acne activity leaving your skin smoother. Fraxel treatments are also effective in removing scars, redness, acne and skin imperfections.
“Now, everyone can clear mild to moderate inflammatory acne without side effects, discomfort, photosensitivity or downtime.” –says Pure Med Spas President Jeff Nourse. Acne Clearing treatments utilize a high intensity enhance light source to permeate the tissue to destroy acne bacteria quickly and easily – with no side effects, no downtime, no pain, and without the exposure to antibiotics. Typically, just ten treatments over a four-week period will greatly improve the appearance of skin.
Blue Light Acne PhotoClearing™ is great for teens and adults and can help heal and clear your face of acne.
