What are the Best Treatments for Adult Acne?

Adult acne can be a major bummer, especially when you’re looking for the best treatments for adult acne. Walk into any drugstore or beauty shop, and you’ll notice that most acne treatments seem to be tailored to teens. 

But what about the rest of us – the adults that often suffer from acne breakouts well into their forties?

That’s why, at Total Dermatology, we’re proud to offer the best treatments for adult acne – ones that actually work!

Isolaz to Treat Current Breakouts

Isolaz is one of our most popular treatments for adult acne because it actively treats current breakouts while destroying the bacteria that can cause future breakouts.

Here’s how it works: During the patient’s 45-minute treatment, the Isolaz device sucks out debris from the skin’s pores, which helps immediately treat and minimize current acne breakouts. In addition to this suction, Isolaz emits a medium-strength laser light energy, which effectively zaps away bacteria that might be lurking beneath the surface.

This two-pronged approach represents a highly effective method for treating both present and future cases of adult acne.

Red Light Therapy Combined with Salicylic Acid Peels

Red light therapy is a great method for treating adult acne because it acts as an immediate anti-inflammatory, thus helping to minimize the appearance of current breakouts. We use salicylic acid peels to help accelerate results from this treatment; in fact, patients see up to 82% clearance rate over the course of 12 weeks, which is an astounding success rate in the fight against adult acne.

LightStim for At-Home Treatments

At Total Dermatology, we are proud to offer LightStim treatments for patients with moderate acne who are looking for quick and easy treatments for their adult acne. 

Not only is this treatment great for destroying bacteria that causes adult acne, but it can also be converted into an at-home treatment for busy patients. The Acne LightStim for Home is an excellent system to maintain your results after your in-office LightStim treatments – don’t forget to ask us about it during your consultation!

"I have had one the best experiences by coming and seeing Dr.Pilest. I had chronic acne with scaring on my face. I just finished the first phase of my treatment and many of my friends noticed it right away. I am so ecstatic about the second phase. He and his staff took the time to really go over all my options in achieving what I wanted. I can’t wait to wear a ponytail out with no makeup. Writing this is making me smile – thank you for the knowledge and patience."

SS, Happy Patient
