Acne is one of the most common and frustrating skin conditions to deal with affecting more than 60 million Americans today. But acne isn’t just for teens. Many people have it as adults.
There are many reasons you can break out as an adult. Stress or changes in your hormone levels, like menopause or switching or stopping birth control pills, are two possibilities. Some medications, including lithium, antiseizure drugs, and corticosteroids, can cause acne.
And scars from acne can seem like double punishment – first you had to deal with the pimples, now you have marks as a reminder.
Our New PicoSure laser is one of few that are FDA cleared to treat acne scars. Clinical studies show a dramatic improvement in the appearance of acne scars in as little as three treatments, that’s promising news.
Through a combination of photothermolysis and intense photomechanical impact, known as Pressure Wave™, our laser treatment breaks up the intended target while allowing the surrounding area to remain undamaged.
