Acne occurs when your oil glands clog up and form pimples and sometimes, cysts. Although acne is common among teenagers, it can affect you at virtually any age. If you are living with acne and longing for an effective, long-term solution, you owe it to yourself to try the acne treatments at RenewMD. Many patients have found success with our acne LED light treatments and chemical peels. Here’s a brief overview of what you can expect from each of these treatments.
Acne LED Light Treatments
We use two different types of acne LED light treatments: Blue LED Light Therapy and Red LED Light Therapy. While Blue LED Light Therapy targets acne causing bacteria, Red LED Light Therapy helps reduce inflammation. At our office, we offer six Blue and Red LED light treatments, up to 6 salicylic treatments, one chemical peel or microdermabrasion treatment, facial cleansing, and special skin topical treatments.
The acne LED treatments typically take 30 to 45 minutes to complete while the salicylic treatments, chemical peel, microdermabrasion, facial cleaning, and topical treatments vary in length and can increase treatment time. After about three to four LED treatments, you should begin to see your acne fade.
Chemical peels are skin-resurfacing techniques that can help you clear acne and smooth out any scars you may have. These peels work by exfoliating the treated area and revealing the smooth, soft skin you’ve always wanted.
While you will likely face a burning sensation during the hour long treatment, the results will be well worth the discomfort. You can enjoy noticeable results one to two weeks after your treatment and may require several peels to see a significant difference in your acne.
Good Candidates for RenewMD’s Acne Treatments
If you are frustrated by mild to moderate acne that you can’t seem to get rid of with over-the-counter products, you may benefit from our acne LED light treatments and/or chemical peels. These treatments are more powerful than the creams and lotions you may find at the drugstore and can help you restore your confidence.
