NeoClear provides an effective and safe way to clear all types of acne, even when traditional methods and medications have failed. The course of treatment aims to reduce your acne where clear skin is the ultimate goal. During your treatment course you should also see a reduction of oil output, reduction of pore size and an overall improvement in your skin’s tone, texture and quality.
The number of treatments varies from person to person depending on the severity of their current treatment condition as well as their lifestyle. To control current breakouts, it is recommended to undergo a treatment course of 4-6 sessions. Once the active acne is controlled, touch-up sessions may be needed to clear subsequent breakouts. Fortunately, the treatment can be performed whenever a breakout occurs.
Before the treatment, you will need to completely clean your skin with a cleanser to remove any lotions, makeup or other substances on the skin. This ensures the treatment is able to achieve the best results possible. NeoClear is typically performed in two steps. The first step is to cover the entire affected area. This step will destroy the P. acnes bacteria to reduce oil output and future breakouts. It will also help your skin’s overall tone and texture by stimulating the growth of collagen and reducing redness. The second step addresses the active acne lesions. The laser energy will be concentrated on each lesion to reduce inflammation and redness, which will help rapidly clear the breakout and reduce 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 experience a mild warming sensation on the skin. Unlike other acne treatments, there are 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 to give you glowing skin.
There is no “down-time” with NeoClear treatments. You may return to your normal daily activities immediately, but you should wear a sun block recommended by your skin care professional and avoid direct sunlight. You may experience a slight redness in the skin, which, if occurs at all, will fade within a few hours.
Everyone’s skin is unique and reacts to treatment differently. Some patients will notice a reduction in their current breakout immediately after the treatment and others may need a treatment course of 6 sessions to control their current breakout. Typically, most patients see noticeable results after 3 treatments with enhanced clearance and quality of skin after each subsequent treatment. It is important to continue an at-home skin care regimen to continue the clearance achieved with the laser. It is important to understand that acne is a chronic condition that frequently recurs. While there may be longer periods between breakouts, you may 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 your skin type. Some patients have achieved acne-free skin for years after their skin cleared. Others have needed to come back after several months once another breakout occurred. There is no set length of clear skin after NeoClear, but regardless of the length of time your skin is clear, NeoClear can always help to control your breakouts.
Every NeoClear treatment is customized for your skin and costs may vary. Please visit a NeoClear provider to determine the best treatment course for you to achieve glowing, acne-free skin.
