School is back in session!
Our Acne Treatment Programs attack active acne and acne scarring with high intensity light emitting diodes or LEDs, professional skin care, injections of active lesions, prescription medication, peels, our powerful laser, microneedling, clinical home care products, probiotics, and diet advice backed by the latest science.
The cornerstone for the Acne Treatment Programs is our LED which emits both blue light and red light. The blue light is particularly harmful to Propionibacterium acnes (also known as P.acnes). P.acnes is the nasty bacteria typically responsible for turning “regular” whiteheads and blackheads into painful, inflamed cysts or nodules. The blue light wavelength has been shown to be more effective than the topical antibiotic clindamycin 1 at killing the P.acnes bacteria. The red light works at the cellular level and is like photosynthesis for your skin. The red light also reduces inflammation (redness left behind from a breakout) and stimulates healing of acne lesions.
Although, we packaged our most common Acne Treatment Programs as Blemish Busters, everyone is different and your program is designed in consultation with Dr. Zieber and our skin care experts.
