There’s no getting away from the fact that acne is a skin condition that is often painful and confidence-killing to those that experience it. Most people get acne at some point in their lives, and acne doesn’t discriminate based on age, race, or gender.
Even though some people outgrow acne, others continue to deal with active acne for several years and even decades. Fortunately, The Langdon Center in Guilford, CT, offers many acne treatments that work and bring positive results.
Benefits of Laser Acne Treatments
The sad truth about acne is that it makes people feel self-conscious about their looks. Active acne can cause individuals to steer away from social activities, and it can even take a toll on their self-esteem.
Laser acne treatment options use laser energy to reduce the size of sebaceous glands beneath the skin. They will also lower bacterial counts in the skin. One of the biggest advantages of laser acne treatments is that patients experience minimal discomfort. Patients also avoid the possible side effects of drugs such as antibiotics and Accutane.
When you have LaserClear treatment, you also don’t need to worry about anesthesia or surgery, because neither gets used in each therapy session. Finally, LaserClear treatments offer marked improvements in patients with hard-to-treat active acne.
Active Acne Laser Treatment
Many patients, unfortunately, have persistent active acne and have “just gotten used to it” for much of their lives. The thing is, active acne laser treatment can help to significantly reduce and even completely eradicate active acne.
Treatments such as LaserClear are ideal for patients with moderate to severe acne on their skin. LaserClear uses two separate lasers to gently deliver light energy onto the skin. Each treatment session lasts just 30 minutes but offers long-term improvements.
Acne Scar Laser Treatments
One unfortunate result of acne is that it can scar the skin on the face or body. Some individuals with acne scarring assume such skin damage is permanent. However, the good news is that acne scarring can be improved with fractional laser resurfacing.
Dr. Langdon and his team provide state-of-the-art acne scar laser treatments such as the Fraxel Laser for small, shallow scars. Patients with deeper scars can benefit from the Deep FX Fractional CO2 Laser.
The acne scar laser treatments available to you will ultimately depend on the level of scarring. Some treatments may require several sessions spaced apart to achieve optimal results.
Am I a Candidate for These Acne Treatments?
Men and women of all ages that experience acne, particularly active and recurring acne, will benefit from the treatments at The Langdon Center. They’re also ideal for patients that have previously tried numerous topical and oral medications with little to no success.
The various laser acne treatment solutions offered by Dr. Langdon and his team give the most significant results of any acne treatments currently on the market.
“I was an eye model in my 20’s so when my lids began to droop I knew I had to do something about it. I researched extensively and found Dr. Langdon to be the best Doctor to touch my eyes. I drive over an hour each way to get to his office. It’s been totally worth it. I am so happy with my eyes. My eyes look 20 years younger.” *
