Laser treatments by NeoClear can treat all skin types who suffer from all severities of acne on the face and body. The treatment may be combined with topical medications and/or chemical peels to optimize the result for cases of stubborn acne. All treatment plans and procedures will be performed by a physician.
*PATIENTS ARE NOT FROM REDLANDS BODY SCULPTING
The NeoClear acne treatment is effective, safe, and gentle for patients of all ages and skin types. For all parts of the body, the NeoClear treatment can be performed at any time, keeping your skin clear and acne-free all year long.
A skin treatment with NeoClear does much more than just help clear your acne. It also offers several other benefits! It stimulates the production of collagen and reduces both redness and brown pigmentation in your skin. The result is an overall improvement in your skin’s tone and texture, leaving you with a youthful glow.
Regardless of the severity of your condition and the size of the affected area, the NeoClear treatment is at most a quick, 30-minute in-office procedure. Less severe cases can take as little as 15 minutes! Since no application of numbing cream or gel is needed, all your laser practitioner needs to do to begin treatment is to clean your skin!
Laser treatments for acne and other skin conditions normally require the application of a numbing cream, gel, or cooling spray so that the laser handpiece can touch the skin. This can be both uncomfortable and unsanitary. NeoClear eliminates the need for any of this. NeoClear’s laser handpiece never comes in contact with your skin and is so comfortable and gentle that no numbing cream or cooling spray is needed.
Once the NeoClear treatment is completed, you may return to your normal daily activities immediately. As with any laser treatment, you should, of course, apply sunblock and stay out of direct sunlight. Your skin will not have any prolonged redness, and if any redness does occur, it will typically resolve within an hour or two.
NeoClear’s unique laser technology offers a new, gentler treatment—even for those especially sensitive to pain. This gentle approach is due to NeoClear’s unique 650 Microsecond Technology®. The phrase “650-microsecond” refers to how quickly the laser passes energy into the skin. It occurs so quickly that the energy cannot spread to the surrounding skin, which is what makes other lasers so uncomfortable.
The number of treatments needed varies from person to person depending on the severity of their current condition as well as their lifestyle. To control current breakouts, it is recommended that a patient undergo a treatment course of 4–6 sessions. Once the active acne is under control, touch-up sessions may be needed to clear subsequent breakouts. Fortunately, the treatment can be easily performed whenever a breakout occurs.
NeoClear is typically performed in two steps. The first step is to cover the entire affected area. This step will destroy the acnes bacteria and prevent future breakouts. This step will also improve your skin’s overall tone and texture by stimulating the growth of collagen and reducing redness. The second step addresses any active acne lesions. The laser energy will be concentrated on each lesion to reduce inflammation and redness, causing the breakout to clear rapidly, and reducing the risk of scarring. Depending on the size of the affected area, treatments typically take between 10–30 minutes.
Most patients who have tried other lasers report that NeoClear is much gentler and more pleasant. Typically, you will only feel a mild warming sensation on the skin when undergoing treatment. And unlike other acne treatments, NeoClear has no side-effects. This means you will not experience dry, itchy, or tender skin. In fact, your overall skin quality and oil output will both improve, leaving you with glowing skin.
There is no “downtime” following NeoClear treatments. You may return to your normal daily activities immediately, though as with any laser treatment, you should wear a sunblock recommended by your skin care professional and avoid direct sunlight. You may experience a slight redness in the skin, but (if it occurs at all) it will fade within a few hours.
Everyone’s skin is unique and therefore reacts differently to treatment. Some patients will notice a reduction in their current breakout immediately after the treatment, while others may need a treatment course of six sessions to control their current breakout. Typically, most patients see noticeable results after three treatments, with an enhanced clearance and quality of skin after each subsequent treatment. To maintain the clearance achieved with the laser, patients should use an at-home skin care regimen. It is important to understand that acne is a chronic condition which frequently recurs. While our treatment may lengthen the periods between breakouts, it is possible that you will need to schedule “touch-up” sessions if or when breakouts do occur.
Each patient will have different results depending on a number of factors including lifestyle, attention to skin care, hormones, and their skin type. Some patients have enjoyed acne-free skin for years after their skin was cleared by our lasers. Others have needed to come back after several months once another breakout occurred. There is no set period of skin clearance after NeoClear, but regardless of the length of time your skin is clear, NeoClear can always help to control your breakouts.
