Acne Treatment ShreveportAcne is painful, unsightly, and embarrassing… and for many people it lasts long into adulthood. Fortunately, there are many steps patients can take to minimize acne flare-ups.

Everyone’s skin is different and needs different care when protecting against acne. At Advanced Laser Clinics of Shreveport, we provide innovative treatments and can create a custom plan for you.

Here are some of our treatments that have great results for acne sufferers:

 

IPL with Levulan

 

IPL with Levulan (also known as Photodynamic Therapy) is a revolutionary treatment for people suffering with stubborn cystic acne. IPL treatments are often used in a series to reduce acne inflammation, but IPL treatments with Levulan are more effective and deliver faster results in fewer treatments.

Levulan is a photosensitizing solution that is only absorbed by abnormal skin cells, which allows us to target problem areas in the skin. After applying the solution, we perform an IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment over the affected area. This kills the acne-causing bacteria in the skin, plus shuts down sebaceous glands. This innovative procedure is a specialty of ours at Advanced Laser Clinics of Shreveport and delivers great results for patients.


 

Chemical Peels
