Acne is the most common skin ailment in the United States; Approximately 50 million Americans are affected by it every year. Although it’s most common in teens and young adults, anyone can get it—and the occurrence of acne in adults is actually on the rise. No matter what stage of life you’re in, it’s time to fight back against those embarrassing blemishes and bring your skin back into balance with the Harmony AFT™ laser acne treatments at Artisan Aesthetics Plastic Surgery & Laser Center.
The Acne Blues
Active acne often causes significant physical and psychological problems such as permanent scarring, poor self-image, depression, and anxiety. Unfortunately, doctors don’t really know what the cause is. According to the National Institutes of Health, changing hormone levels, certain medicines, wearing greasy makeup, and heredity are thought to be prime contributors. For those who already have acne problems, things like pollution and high humidity, squeezing and picking at pimples, hard scrubbing of the skin, stress, and pressure from bike helmets and tight collars can make things worse.
Don’t Go Solo Against Acne
If you’ve endured any level of acne, you’ve likely tried multitudes of different at-home treatments in an attempt to tame your skin. While there are many therapies out there that can provide relief, not everyone is able to enjoy the benefits of over-the-counter or even prescription medications. However, now there’s no reason to go it alone anymore.
Stop the Same Old Refrain with Harmony AFT
Now you can effectively target the underlying cause of your acne problems with the Harmony AFT. This latest innovation works by using powerful advanced fluorescence technology to destroy the underlying acne-causing bacteria. The light pulses evenly at a lower energy than traditional IPL therapies, ensuring consistent and repeatable results, all while maximizing patient comfort.
Singing the Praises of Harmony AFT
Our patients love sessions with the Harmony AFT—and not just for its acne-fighting benefits. Treatments are quick and painless, usually only lasting minutes in the comfort of our Tampa office. Multiple areas can be targeted in the same session, giving you the coverage you need while saving precious time. For optimal results, Dr. Castor will recommend a series of treatments based on your unique situation. After each session, most patients feel improvements in skin tone, texture, evenness, and color.
Harmonize with a Concert of Treatments
You can maximize the effects of your Harmony acne treatments by combining them with other facial procedures here at Artisan Aesthetics. A chemical peel like the Enhanced Jessner’s Treatment can help to control breakouts and improve your complexion. You can effectively reduce acne scarring with our Pixel Fractional Laser Resurfacing and microneedling option as well.
