Acne Treatments in Louisville, Lexington, Kentucky
At Skin Spa, we provide a multitude of treatments for acne.
Blue Light is FDA approved to treat acne by reducing bacteria and oil on the skin. Any area of the face and body can be treated. This type of treatment is non-invasive and has no downtime. Photo-Dynamic Therapy (PDT) w/ Levulan, shuts down sebaceous oil glands, reducing pore size and minimizing acne. Any areas of the body may be treated. PDT with Levulan does have a minimal downtime of five to seven days.
The MicroLaserPeel is a partial to full epidermal laser peel and is done in the office using a topical anesthetic. It ablates the outermost layers of the skin with the depth of the peel averaging between 10 and 50 microns based on the level of correction. This treatment is usually repeated two to four times, spaced six to eight weeks apart to achieve the desired result. The downtime for this peel is three to four days. Patients may look sunburned immediately following the treatment. Redness will continue to dissipate.
BroadBand Light (BBL)
BroadBand Light (BBL) utilizes the power of pulsed light to deliver excellent phototherapy results. This is a non-invasive, safe, gentle procedure with no downtime. Makeup may be applied directly after treatment and return to normal activities right away. This may cause some redness immediately following the treatment that will resolve within a few hours. Using sunblock when you go outdoors is very important.
Skin Spa also offers Microdermabrasion, Acne Peels, Chemical Peels, and Home Skin Care products for other options for acne treatments. For more information on Acne treatments or any other laser treatments, visit our Laser Treatments home page.
