One of the most common and distressing skin complaints, acne isn’t just an issue encountered by teenagers. Many patients continue to suffer from acne breakouts well into adulthood. And, even if you get your acne under control, the scarring can be a significant cosmetic issue.
Treating acne at home is a good first step, but in many cases, it takes something more to reduce acne breakouts and heal acne scars.
That’s why the team at New Jersey Plastic Surgery offers the most advanced acne laser treatments. As aesthetic medical specialists, we understand the importance that clear, even skin has on an individual’s self-confidence. It is often difficult to conceal acne and post-acne marks with concealer, and not all patients have the option to wear makeup.
Acne tends to occur in highly visible areas such as the face and chest. While it is difficult to reduce acne marks completely, lasers are an excellent way to diminish scarring and even reduce active acne for visible skin improvement. You can prolong the results of in-office acne treatment with the addition of professional skincare products such as the ZO acne protocol. Combining in-office treatments with professional-grade acne remedies is the best way to keep acne under control.
Improve Your Skin And Boost Your Self-confidence
Our state-of-the-art aesthetic center is led by board-certified NJ plastic surgeon, Dr. Barry DiBernardo. Dr. DiBernardo has a specialist interest in helping patients get clear skin. He is a key opinion leader on laser technology.
In fact, some of the leading cosmetic laser companies rely on Dr. DiBernardo to evaluate their techniques and devices. Patients travel from all over the United States and other countries to gain access to the acne lasers, laser skin resurfacing, laser hair removal, laser tattoo removal, and more at New Jersey Plastic Surgery. We are a world leader in emerging laser technology.
New Jersey Plastic Surgery offers many effective options for reducing active acne breakouts, as well as helping patients lighten acne scars fast. After listening to your concerns at a private consultation, a skin evaluation is performed. Armed with this information, your NJ acne laser specialist recommends the best acne laser to achieve your individual goals.
The Cutera Excel V acne treatment has a dual-wavelength design that enables our team to target the sebaceous glands that create the excess oil responsible for acne. The Cutera acne laser has favorable patient reviews, with most patients experiencing a noticeable improvement in the skin in just 3 to 6 treatment sessions.
Adjustable laser treatments such as Sciton laser can address different levels of acne scarring for optimal results. The Sciton Profractional laser wavelength uses an Er:YAG laser for acne scar and pockmark removal. This deep-healing fractional acne laser improves collagen production in the skin.
By stimulating fibroblasts, it induces deep skin remodeling to soften the look of acne scars. Skin strength and thickness improves over a series of treatments performed a few weeks apart. The Sciton ProFractional downtime is minimal, so patients can get back to life quickly.
Among Cynosure’s best acne scar lasers is Cynosure PicoSure Focus — an FDA approved device that is clinically proven to revitalize skin. This quick, low-pain treatment generally takes less than 30 minutes to perform. It works by facilitating the creation of new collagen and elastin in damaged skin, which can help heal acne scars.
A series of 3 to 6 treatments are generally needed to obtain a 50% improvement in acne scars on average, variable based on scar depth and individual healing response. To learn if PicoSure for acne marks is the best acne scar treatment for you, contact us today for a consultation.
Lasers activate a topical solution that infiltrates the skin and reduces acne. Rather than relying on topical acne medications alone, we apply a special laser-activated liquid that penetrates oily skin and directly enters oil glands, which are often the source of acne-prone skin.
The treatment reduces oil production, ideal for patients that struggle with shiny skin caused by excess sebum. With less sebum clogging pores, it helps to prevent acne from forming. The result is less acne, improved skin texture, and a boost in self-esteem.
In addition to these laser treatments, the CureLight from ClearLight is an effective light-based treatment for acne vulgaris. First developed in Israel, it was FDA approved for use in the United States in 2002. Since then, millions of patients have experienced fewer acne breakouts and clearer skin.
Its high-intensity, narrow-band blue light for acne fights acne at the source. The device works by causing photo-destruction of the acne bacteria, all without damaging the surrounding tissue or skin. Recovery time is minimal, and the procedure itself is well-tolerated, taking less than 30 minutes to perform. Three to eight treatments may be needed to obtain the desired effect.
Having a few lasers in the office does not make a doctor or aesthetician a specialist in laser treatment.
Dr. Barry DiBernardo has built up his reputation for excellence with laser solutions over nearly three decades of ongoing research, training, and clinical application. Dr. Barry DiBernardo has completed extensive education and advanced surgical training at some of the most prestigious institutions in the country.
Although revising internal structures can have enormous cosmetic benefits, Dr. DiBernardo recognizes that the very first thing anybody sees – the skin – deserves special attention as well. A celebrated professional photographer before becoming a plastic surgeon, Dr. DiBernardo understands how the appearance of the skin impacts a person’s quality of life.
He has seen, time and again, that subjects with even the best lighting and composition are dissatisfied with the way they look. Issues of skin texture and appearance are frequent sources of complaints. As a result, Dr. DiBernardo passionately embraces innovation in cosmetic lasers.
