Acne is the most common skin condition in the U.S., affecting up to 50 million people annually. Each day, you see patients suffering from the physical and emotional scars of the condition. Topical therapy with retinoids and benzoyl peroxide is often used as the first-line treatment for acne, but it can take several weeks to work and may be associated with side effects such as sun sensitivity, skin dryness, and irritation. Poor compliance with topical treatments is also a common issue.
Up to 65% of patients do not comply with their prescribed topical treatments, which can make it difficult for dermatologists to effectively manage the condition. Systemic therapies like oral isotretinoin and antibiotics can be effective for more severe cases of acne, but they may also come with side effects and the risk of antibiotic resistance.
Patients are educated consumers
Nowadays, patients are educated consumers when it comes to medications for acne. Patients are increasingly aware of pregnancy risk and other side effects of isotretinoin and are also concerned about other drug interactions.
Patients of color are hesitant to try certain therapies due to the risk of scarring, post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation and post-inflammatory erythema, as well as traditionally having limited options in terms of procedural treatments for acne.
"The Aerolase’s wavelength of 1064 nanometers targets capillaries to reduce inflammation, decrease bacteria that contributes to acne, treat pigmentation, and reduce oil gland production." said dermatologist Sonia Batra, M.D.
How does the Neo Derm treat acne?
It’s important to note that Neo Derm is safe, effective and has no side effects. It doesn’t cause irritation or dryness as some medications do. Neo Derm is the only energy-based device that treats acne in a way that other topical treatments cannot. The conventional acne treatment model consists of a patient diagnosis, prescription, then we wait and see. It’s time that this treatment model be enriched.
The Aerolase Neo Derm reduces sebum production, reduces inflammation, and destroys the p. acnes bacteria. The laser targets the inflammation of active acne and the vessels that feed the sebaceous gland.
The laser energy also destroys the p. acnes bacteria. The sebaceous glands reduce the amount of sebum output, the active acne infection is cleared and skin returns to normal. The result is clearer, healthier-looking skin with fewer breakouts!
