Both teenagers and adults can be plagued by stubborn acne that simply does not respond to medications. With our Acnelase procedure, we can deliver treatment directly into the troublesome glands to eradicate acne and give your skin a chance to heal. Located in Montclair, NJ, New Jersey Plastic Surgery® is pleased to offer Acnelase to the residents in and around Bloomfield, Essex County, Morristown and the surrounding communities.
What Is Acnelase?
Acnelase refers to our laser acne treatment system. Rather than relying on topical and oral medications that may not work on your acne, we can apply a special laser-activated liquid that penetrates oily skin and directly enters oil glands, the source of acne problems. The technique reduces oil and eliminates acne, giving the skin time to heal and strengthen. This, in turn, allows the skin to better prevent another acne outbreak. The result is less acne, better skin texture, and an improved self-image.
The Best Candidates for Acnelase
Ideal candidates have facial acne and/or body acne that persists or that keeps returning despite treatment. Patients should also be in general good health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of this procedure.
Planning Your Acnelase Treatment
At your consultation, we will explain how Acnelase works, answer any questions you may have and customize your Acnelase treatment for your goals and desires.
Preparing for Your Acnelase Treatment
On the day of your appointment, you should avoid wearing makeup or heavy creams over the area being treated.
The Acnelase Procedure
First, we will cleanse the treatment zone, then apply the special solution topically. Next, we will apply controlled laser energy to activate the properties of the liquid.
How Much Does Acnelase Cost?
The cost of Acnelase varies for each patient depending on the treatment goals, extent of change desired and other factors. For your convenience, we accept cash, check, Visa®, Master®Card, American Express® and Discover®. Financing options are available through CareCredit® and AlphaeonTM.
Minimize exposure to the sun and other potential irritants following your treatment. Do not rub or scratch the treated area. You may not see an effect right away, but as your skin heals, you will find that your skin looks and feels healthier and less oily. You should notice less recurrence of acne over time.
Getting Back to Normal Following Acnelase
Since no sedation is used, you may resume your daily activities immediately following treatment.
