Finally, A Laser that Tackles Age and Acne

By Chelsea Campbell

You may think if you're old enough to be worried about the signs of aging, you've long left your blemish cream in your teenaged past. Unfortunately for many 20- and 30-somethings, that isn't always the case. Although millennials are becoming increasingly interested in anti-aging measures, the truth of the matter is many are still battling acne as well. For young people who are simultaneously fighting both fine lines and blemishes, there's a new contender in their corner to help them with both issues: Aerolase. 

How Aerolase Works

Aerolase is an advanced medical device that uses 650-microsecond laser energy to target a multitude of skin concerns. This focused energy stimulates collagen production to address skin tone, pore texture, pigmentation, elasticity, and inflammation. Aerolase is uniquely innovative in its ability to treat cystic acne by repressing overproduction of sebum and destroying the strain of bacteria responsible for chronic acne. It also helps reduce the inflammation that comes along with deep, painful acne to improve the appearance of the skin.

Who Can Use Aerolase?

Aerolase is safe and effective for all ages and skin types, so anyone can achieve impressive results. Dr. Christopher Zachary, a board-certified dermatologist at the University of California Irvine, says Aerolase can be used to treat the signs of aging as well as blemishes.  "It's good for things like melasma, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and in general, for skin toning," says Zachary. He says patients with acne can experience impressive results, especially when hey receive Aerolase in conjunction with a topical or an antibiotic. Dr. Zachary is especially fond of photodynamic light therapy together with Aerolase for stubborn or severe acne. 

You may benefit from Aerolase if you:

●    do not wish to take oral acne medication  

●     suffer from melasma or hyperpigmentation

●     want to regain skin firmness and tightness

●     want smoother skin texture

●     want to reduce fine lines and wrinkles

●     have redness or inflammation 

Unfortunately, acne breakouts don't always end when you become an adult. Luckily, Aerolase is an effective way to do double-duty and treat both the concerns of youth and age. Isn't that the nature of being a millennial, feeling stuck in a limbo of adolescence and adulthood? Now if only there were a quick-fix for that quarter-life crisis!A
