Treatment

How is Acne Treated?

Face Forward Medical Aesthetics in Lexington, MA, offers advanced light-based acne treatments using Forever Clear BBL. Light therapy is an excellent potential solution. Although the exact science behind the treatment is poorly understood, several theories are proposed:

  • Blue light treatment is absorbed by porphyrins (biological pigments) inside the bacteria C. acnes, killing the bacteria that causes acne.
  • Red light also activates porphyrins and penetrates into the deeper skin layers.
  • Thermal damage is applied to the sebaceous glands, decreasing sebum production (which can clog pores).

How Are Acne Scars Treated?

Scars that result from acne are often a permanent and unwelcome reminder of an original struggle with acne. These scars can be of two main varieties: skin depressions (depressed, atrophic,) or raised (hypertrophied, keloid) scars, sometimes called icepick scars. For minor acne scars, microneedling is an excellent solution.

For more significant acne scars, our state-of-the-art laser in Lexington, MA, offers acne scar treatment with advanced hybrid fractional skin resurfacing. This harnesses the skin’s amazing capacity for self-healing by creating thousands of micro punctures, inducing the skin to create more collagen and thus restructure the scar.
