Acne is a common condition, and not just for teenagers. Unfortunately, it can strike adults as well. It can be embarrassing and painful, and can make the most self-confident person suddenly self-conscious. Have you had acne problems for years? Have you tried everything to get rid of it to no avail? If you are tired of dealing with acne and want to do something about it that really works, an acne treatment such as Smooth Beam from New Look Skin Center can help.
What is Smooth Beam?
Smooth Beam is a nonsurgical, painless laser procedure. The laser energy goes through the skin’s surface and shrinks the sebaceous glands while cooling and protecting the outer layer of the skin. These glands cause the skin to be oily and inflamed, and are a source of bacterial growth. The laser shrinks them permanently, so they can no longer overproduce oil and cause acne.
However, Smooth Beam can do more than prevent acne breakouts. It also stimulates the production of collagen, which helps to treat fine lines and wrinkles. This newly formed collagen also fills in pock marks caused by acne. The result is less acne and also firmer, smoother, less oily skin.
The laser is gentle and noninvasive, and there is no downtime after this procedure and no adverse reactions. The only reaction most people notice is some redness to the skin, which will go away in 1 to 2 days. Most patients only feel a slight tingle as the laser is applied, but a topical anesthetic can be used for patients with sensitive skin. A treatment is quick, as it only takes 20 to 30 minutes, and up to six treatments may be necessary to see optimal results.
You don’t have to live with acne anymore – Smooth Beam is painless, quick, and very effective. And, it is only one option available if you are looking for a way to get rid of acne. The staff at the New Look Skin Center in California can discuss which one of these options may be right for you, so that you can have the beautiful skin you have always wanted.
