Learn about the acne treatments available at our Albuquerque med spa

Acne, pimples, zits — whatever you call it, this condition can be one of the most frustrating cosmetic concerns. What’s worse is that acne doesn’t seem to care about age, gender, or skin type.

Although you have probably tried numerous facial washes, topical creams, and acne-fighting moisturizers, these methods treat acne only on the surface of the skin. If you’re looking for a more effective acne treatment in Albuquerque, you’ll want to seek a more technologically advanced method than topical products. Let me introduce you to laser and light therapy, which attack acne directly at the source.

At AlluraDerm MD MedSpa, we offer 2 different types of acne treatments: Omnilux™ Light Therapy and Aramis™ Laser technology. These diverse methods can be used together or alone. When combined with the most effective physician-prescribed cosmeceuticals, you’ll be able to achieve the personalized results you’re looking for. Let’s look more closely at these treatments and the benefits of each.

Omnilux Light Therapy

Using 2 different types of light, Omnilux treatments target the sebaceous glands to destroy acne from beneath the skin’s surface. The destruction of the bacteria in the sebaceous glands also helps prevent the regeneration of acne in the future to help you see long-term results. Here’s how it works:

  • Blue light is conditioned to kill the bacteria that is trapped within the sebum and causes acne.
  • Red light blocks the inflammatory cascade, making the procedure painless and preventing irritation.

Because this gentle but effective method doesn’t damage the surface of your skin, it’s got an advantage over other treatment methods that often cause rashes, sensitivity, scarring, and more.

Aramis Laser Technology

The Aramis™ Laser treats acne at the source by using wavelengths that go beyond the surface layers of the skin, all the way to the root of the sebaceous glands where acne originates. The laser uses thermal energy to alter the sebaceous glands in 3 ways:

  • Reduces the size of the sebaceous glands.
  • Reduces oil and bacteria production.
  • Reduces the number of acne lesions and scars.

Each of these methods of treatment have proven to be highly effective for people with acne. Our experienced technicians are prepared to help you create a personalized treatment regimen for your skin. Click here to see a video demonstrating the procedures we’ve discussed.
