N-Lite Acne Treatment
Before & After Photo Gallery of N-Lite Acne Treatment
The N-Lite laser was described as “the most significant advancement in acne treatment in decades”. The FDA approved this laser for treatment of inflammatory acne. Clinical studies showed the N-Lite to be comparable, if not more effective, than prescription antibiotics.
Now, thanks to advances in laser physics, Dr.Burke is using the next and latest generation of acne treatments lasers, manufactured by Astanza. This laser reacts with biologic substances produced by skin bacteria, converting them to an antibiotic like compound, killing the bacteria present in acne. (by using this natural biological method, antibiotics may be completely avoided). For mild acne, a single treatment may be sufficient to suppress acne for up to 1-3 months or longer. For moderate to severe acne, more frequent treatment is usually needed. Since acne is a chronic disease, maintenance treatments may be required and will vary depending on the individual.
Other complementary treatments include: microdermabrasion, chemical peels, laser resurfacing, matrix micro laser(R) peel, punch excision and grafting of deep scars, and volume replacement injections with Bellafill, the only FDA approved filler for acne scars.
