Are you struggling with persistent acne that won’t clear up with over-the-counter treatments? Whether you are a teenager or an adult, acne can stir up feelings of self-consciousness and can lower your self-esteem. If this is something you struggle with, laser and light treatment may be an option for you. This innovative new way to combat stubborn acne is now offered at the office of Michael Jacobs M.D.
What Is Acne?
Acne is a common skin imperfection that occurs when secretions from the skin’s sebaceous glands clog a hair follicle. These clogs are often all called “pimples”, and depending on size and appearance, can be classified as a “blackhead” or “whitehead”. Both kinds of blemishes can become swollen, tender, and grow deep under the surface of the skin. Severe acne or “cystic acne” occurs when firm nodules under the skin become inflamed or sometimes infected. Dr. Jacobs offers Forever Clear BBL as an advanced means of clearing up acne breakouts and promoting radiant, glowing skin.
What Is Forever Clear BBL?
Forever Clear BBL involves the use of specific types of light waves to reduce acne on the face and body without the need for medication or topical ointments.
Forever Clear BBL treatments are usually performed at our practice without the need for sedation. You will lie back in a chair, your eyes will be covered, and the doctor will treat each blemish with the focused laser light emitted from this system.
Am I a Good Candidate for Acne Reduction Treatments?
The best candidates for Forever Clear BBL or another of our acne treatments should be in good health and have tried other acne treatments without success. A good candidate will have moderate-to-severe acne. Women should not be pregnant nor breastfeeding at the time of appointment.
What Results Should I Expect?
Forever Clear BBL can make a great difference in promoting clearer skin with an optimal treatment plan. Patients should have realistic expectations as you go through the procedure. Results will vary from person to person.
If you are experiencing moderate-to-severe acne, Forever Clear BBL may be the solution for you. Please contact the office of Michael Jacobs M.D. for more information. We would love to set up an appointment and get you on the road to clearer skin!
