Suburban Plastic surgery now offers the latest in FDA approved laser therapy for treatment of acne. The Galaxy laser combines the latest combination of radio frequency, and light to reduce the amount of inflammation to the skin. Weekly treatments are required for optimum benefit but can be significantly reduced with the addition of a photosensitizer such as Levulon.
The laser works on both active acne lesions as well as on the sebaceous glands that havenít yet created acne lesions. Levulon is used to target the specific gland involved.
Patients requesting the use of Levulon need to arrive 1 hour before treatment time for maximum benefit. Most patients feel the laser treatment is pain- free. Patients are instructed to use sunscreen following treatment.
