Which Acne Treatment Is Best for You?
There are many treatments for acne, including creams, washes, and medications. If your acne is not responsive to conventional treatments, you may want to consider professional treatments, including microdermabrasion, dual-light acne treatment, or BLU-U light photodynamic treatment. Thes cutting-edge procedures will deliver a bright and beautiful complexion!
This non-invasive procedure utilizes tiny crystals to exfoliate the skin, removing any impurities and dead cells. By removing the outermost layer of skin, the treatment reveals a brighter, clearer, and more healthy-looking complexion. Microdermabrasion is effective in treating mild acne, non-active acne areas, as well as superficial or raised acne scars. However, it is not recommended for active acne to avoid spreading the infection.
Dual Light Acne Treatment by Venus Versa™
This treatment utilizes intense pulsed light (IPL) SmartPulse™ technology to destroy acne-causing bacteria and reduce inflammation. IPL Dual Light Acne technology delivers precise and consistent energy to treat both the underlying causes and the visible symptoms of acne using a combination of blue and red light. The blue light targets acne-causing bacteria, leading to its destruction, while the longer wavelength of red light reduces inflammation and promotes healing. The real-time cooling system allows for a comfortable treatment. Patients typically require 6-10 treatments, 1-2 times a week.
Acne Laser Treatment
Laser acne treatment provides a solution to the problem of acne. The laser precisely penetrates into skin to effectively target overactive sebaceous glands and to reduce the risk of developing new acne inflammation.
In addition to its thermal penetration effects, the Nd:YAG acne laser treatment also accelerates the healing process and stimulates collagen remodeling, an important step in the long-term treatment of acne.
For improving the appearance of acne scars, we offer a laser treatment based on a precise and gentle skin resurfacing procedure in which a laser beam is absorbed by the top micro-layers of the skin to vaporize scarred tissue and stimulate the production of new collagen in the dermis.
Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing allows the penetration depth to be precisely controlled. The laser gently vaporizes micron-thin layers of the acne-scarred surface to reveal healthy, undamaged skin below. Laser resurfacing is a fast, safe and simple procedure.
BLU-U Light Photodynamic Treatment
If you have moderate acne and are tired of antibiotics and topical treatments, you may want to consider BLU-U light therapy. The treatment utilizes a unique blue light that destroys acne-causing bacteria. The procedure is simple, with patients sitting close to the light for short intervals. Patients typically require one to two treatments a week, for approximately five weeks. You should see some improvement after several weeks, as the blue light controls your acne. BLU-U light treatment is comfortable and virtually painless.
Which Acne Scar and Surgical Scar Treatment Is Best for You?
If you are looking for ways to improve the appearance of acne or surgical scars, you may want to consider chemical peels or Venus Viva™ laser skin resurfacing. These treatments will help deliver a smooth, radiant complexion, leaving you looking and feeling your best!
A chemical peel involves the use of an acidic solution to remove the outer layer of skin and stimulate the production of new skin cells. The strength of the acid determines the depth of skin exfoliation. At Amarillo Laser & Vein Clinic Dr. Jarrous and his staff use the ZO® 3 Step Peel, a medical-grade skin product. This revolutionary treatment is suitable for all skin types. It contains growth factors, antioxidants, and collagen that all work together to reduce the appearance of acne scars.
Venus Viva™ Treatment by Fotona
This non-surgical solution for skin resurfacing works to correct the signs of skin damage and improve the appearance of acne scars and other scars, rosacea, deep wrinkles, stretch marks, enlarged pores, and uneven skin texture and pigmentation. The Fotona laser is effective in treating new and old scars anywhere on the face or body.
Fotona laser scar-revision treatment is minimally invasive with a quick recovery. When it comes to hypertrophic and keloid scars, the procedure delivers a substantial improvement in the aesthetic appearance and overall tissue quality, along with a reduction in redness and volume. In many cases, further improvement is achieved using a gentle ablative Er:YAG skin resurfacing laser. Acne scars, in particular, respond well to Er:YAG treatments.
We recommend 3-6 treatment sessions for mild to moderate scarring, and 6-9 sessions for moderate to severe scarring.
