Acne is one of the most common skin problems among teenagers and adults worldwide. This condition causes whiteheads, blackheads, pimples and other blemishes that can be painful. There are several effective treatment options available for patients who seek professional dermatological help. One of the best of these is treatment with Fotona’s Nd:YAG laser system. Read on to find out more information about ways to prevent and manage acne.
What About Topical and Oral Medications?
Persistent acne could be treated with medication that’s prescribed by a professional dermatologist. Some topical gels, creams, and pastes are formulated specifically to kill bacteria on contact. Benzoyl peroxide is perhaps one of the most potent formulas for the treatment of mild and moderate acne. All gels and creams that are used to treat acne are available in various concentrations that are suitable for a wide range of cases. But these medications can come with their fair share of downsides.
Topical medication can cause undesirable symptoms in patients with sensitive skin. Dryness, redness, peeling, and flaking are some common problems that are associated with creams and gels. Fortunately, there is a better solution that can be used to combat and prevent outbreaks. We’re talking about the Nd:YAG laser.
Getting Started with Treatment
We may first physically remove visible whiteheads, blackheads, cysts, and nodules on the face or body of a patient before performing the laser treatment. After the extraction, there may be some redness and inflammation of the areas that were cleared up. Our medical professionals are highly skilled and can minimize or completely prevent infection during an extraction.
Acne treatment is not one-size-fits-all. However, we have seen great results using the Fotona Nd:YAG laser system. Learn more by scheduling a consultation at Derm Aesthetica Med Spa in Amarillo, TX. Contact us today to book an appointment!
