Laser therapy is an excellent alternative to topical and oral acne treatments.
Available at Sieveking Plastic Surgery in Nashville, TN, The LightPod Neo, long used by physicians to successfully treat acne scars, has been FDA approved for acne treatment. This multi-purpose laser can be used to control acne and reduce the look of redness and scarring.
Acne blemishes and acne scars are common skin conditions that can affect patients of all ages and sexes.
Acne can have a significant effect on oneâ€™s physical appearance and mental well-being. While there are a multitude of treatment options available on the market, each offers its own advantages and disadvantages. Depending on the severity of the acne, some acne treatments may prove more successful or suitable than others. In cases where topical creams are irritating or ineffective, and oral medications are not a suitable or desirable option, laser therapy is a promising alternative.
The LightPod Neo is an FDA approved laser that can be used on both acne and acne scars.
The LightPod Neo uses MicroPulse-1064 technology to deliver 15000 watts of power in small, controlled bursts of 0.65 milliseconds that effectively destroy acne bacteria in the sebaceous glands, reaching the deeper layers of the skin. Its patented cooling system helps keeps patients comfortable while reducing the risk of damage or irritation to other areas of the skin. The laser hand piece does not come into contact with the patientâ€™s skin, making it a well-tolerated and hygienic acne treatment that can be used on even the most sensitive skin.
The LightPod Neo offers dramatic results in the treatment of mild to moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris.
The LightPod Neo can be used to treat acne and scars on the face, and is also ideal for use on larger areas, such as the back and chest. There are fewer side effects associated with the laser than with topical and oral medications, and significant improvement can be seen soon after several treatments. The procedure is non-invasive, and no downtime is required. The laser can also be used to stimulate the production of collagen, thereby further improving the tone and texture of the skin. Blemishes and acne scars will be reduced, as will any redness or unevenness.
Laser therapy is an innovative and effective treatment choice against acne and acne scars.
The LightPod Neo laser offers both patients and physicians many advantages over other forms of treatment. Patients benefit from clearer skin, reduced redness, and diminished scars, without having to deal with the side effects of oral or topical treatments. With the LightPod Neo, physicians gain a multi-purpose tool that can be used in combination with other therapies to ensure maximum results that can be tailored to meet each patientâ€™s individual needs.
