Acne is one of the more persistent dermatological conditions. It affects an estimated 12 to 24 percent of adults between the ages of 15 to 30. The worst part about acne is that it can leave dreadful, lasting marks on a person’s face. It can turn a handsome or beautiful person into one who worries about their appearance constantly.
Spectra is a treatment for acne-prone faces and skin with active acne outbreaks. It aims to treat the primary causes of acne to deter future outbreaks while improving the overall health of a patient’s skin. This can provide effective relief from acne. If you are suffering from acne, then it is beneficial to know what the Spectra system is, how it affects acne and why it may be better than other acne treatments.
What is Spectra?
This is a laser system designed to treat a number of skin problems. The versatility in this system revolves around the interchangeable wands that allow the frequency of light and type of light to be altered. This allows our dermatological care provider to select from many potential types of treatments rather than just one or two.
This provides a more versatile treatment, which in turn allows for the causes of a particular condition to be treated with a high degree of precision. Depending upon the type of wand used, Spectra can do everything from removing the dull outermost layer of skin to resurfacing areas of the face.
How Does Spectra Treat Acne?
Spectra can treat active acne outbreaks by eliminating the dirt and germs responsible for irritating the sebaceous glands. This allows for a quick, non-surgical method of reducing the number of irritants so that the skin can promptly begin healing. During the treatment, carbon particles are able to penetrate deep into the pores to stimulate the production of collagen and skin elasticity.
In patients that may have acne-prone skin, Spectra works as a preventative measure. It can keep the sebaceous glands calm by using the right light, reduce the presence of bacteria, remove dead skin cells from the face and rejuvenate the dermis layer of the skin.
Once the dermis layer has been treated, acne tends to become a thing of the past with the proper maintenance. This can allow a patient who has experienced chronic acne outbreaks to be free from this dermatological condition.
Why Choose Spectra Over Other Forms of Acne Treatment?
Spectra is a non-invasive method of treating acne and the causes of it. When compared to topical creams and ointments, this treatment has the distinct advantage of avoiding abrasive agents. The Spectra laser can target undesirable structures and components that may not be on the top surface of the skin, which allows it to more effectively treat problems beneath the skin.
Another major advantage of Spectra is the ability to condition acne-prone skin to be less susceptible to acne outbreaks. This can allow a patient to avoid acne entirely with the right maintenance.
