A New Solution for Acne… No Prescription Needed!

Acne is a chronic skin condition that requires long-term solutions. There are many over-the-counter and prescription-based acne treatments—but they don’t work unless they are used consistently, even when pimples clear up. One of the biggest challenges of treating acne is sticking to a regimen and not abandoning your topical therapies if you don’t see results quickly enough. That’s when New York plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Schwartz recommends Sciton’s Forever Clear BBL, a state-of-the-art in-office treatment that offers major benefits for acne sufferers.

This two-step light-based treatment first uses blue wavelengths of light to destroy the P. acnes bacteria responsible for acne. The second step employs green light to reduce the redness inflammation associated with breakouts. Each treatment only takes 10 to 15 minutes, and although your skin may be slightly pink for up to a day after treatment, you can apply makeup if needed, and get back to your usual activities immediately afterward. A series of 6 to 8 treatments is recommended for optimal acne clearing, but most patients see visible improvement in active acne within a few days after their first treatment. Depending on the type and severity of your acne, maintenance sessions may be recommended every six months to maintain results.
