Acne / Scar Removal

 

BE ACNE FREE WITHOUT PILLS

Couple with Clear FaceChocolate? French fries? Stress? There are many myths regarding the cause of acne, but the explanation is simple. The skin produces oil naturally through the sebaceous glands. When oil gets trapped in pores, bacteria forms and the result is an infection, which we call an acne blemish. More severe cases are called cystic acne.

 

Extended use of antibiotics may result in resistant strains of bacteria, rendering antibiotics useless in the long run. This is especially problematic in teenagers with young immune systems.

IMPROVED LASER RESURFACING — THE NEXT GENERATION

First, there was the skin peels. Then came laser resurfacing. Now, Abington Aesthetic & Laser Medical Center offers a dramatic improvement in scar removal.

NEWEST TECHNOLOGY — THE PIXEL 2940

See and experience dramatic improvements in your skin with minimal discomfort, with little to no downtime. The Pixel 2940 is the latest and best method to reduce acne scars, surgical scars, or traumatic scars.

Another advantage of the Pixel 2940 is its ability to target various areas such as the face, neck, chest, arms and hands.

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

Lasting results are comparable to earlier laser resurfacing techniques and, as always, is dependent on individual characteristics*. Individual results will vary.

THE BIG BENEFITS BEAUTIFUL SKIN, NO DOWNTIME

Clients notice the results immediately — tighter, firmer, and smoother skin*. Furthermore, most patients can return to work almost immediately. For women, any residual redness can easily be covered with makeup.

SIDE EFFECTS & RISKS

The Pixel 2940 machine offers speedy healing and minimal to no downtime. Patients report that treatment is generally well-tolerated and almost pain free; just a light flicking or elastic band feeling on the skin as the laser is fired. Also, clients experience a slight sensation of warmth during treatment. Of course, treatment of deeper wrinkles and scars may produce more discomfort and heat effect, but this can be managed effectively using a cold air device to aid any discomfort.

MINOR SIDE EFFECTS AND REDUCED RISKS

You may notice minor redness, such as sunburn, and skin flaking in the days post-treatment. This is similar to a superficial chemical peel, but without the discomfort. These effects can be minimized using cooling gels or aloe vera. These minor side effects should resolve in 24-48 hours, depending on skin sensitivity. Its also recommended that you apply sunscreen to the treated area.

The Pixel 2940 delivers results comparable to traditional ablative lasers. At the same time, it eliminates the possible side effects of traditional ablative methods such as hypo- or hyper-pigmentation — dark or light patches forming on the skin — post-procedure infections, swelling, erythema (redness) or edema (swelling caused by inflammation).

TREATMENT REGIME

A treatment program of 3-5 treatments, spaced 3-4 weeks apart, is usually recommended to achieve optimal results*. The number of treatment sessions required will depend upon the individual patient and condition*; Dr. Zelinger will be able to create an appropriate treatment regime for you.
