Sunnyvale Acne TreatmentIf you have a serious case of acne and acne scars, you’re probably willing to try anything to free yourself of these skin conditions. And in your research, you may be wondering, “What’s best – lasers or creams?” Read on to learn more.

Laser Treatment for Acne and Halo/Micro-needling Acne Scar Removal Explained

Dr. Sani at Health and Beauty Physicians is one of the nation’s leading skincare professionals and cosmetic surgeons. In fact, he’s been voted one of the top physicians in the United States by the Consumer Research Council of America and serves as the Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at the prestigious University of California, San Francisco.

As a trusted skin care professional for many patients, the Bay Area and throughout the US, Dr. Sani highly recommends the Halo laser versus creams for acne treatment and acne scar removal. In fact, Dr. Sani frequently sees patients for whom acne creams – both for killing acne and smoothing out scars – haven’t worked, even when they’ve used prescription-strength formulas.

Dr. Sani recommends using the Halo laser for acne scar treatment and laser acne scar removal. The world’s first Hybrid Fractional Laser, Halo is an advanced, cutting-edge solution used by top physicians like Dr. Sani. Blue Light BBL can be used to penetrate acne to kill the disease-causing bacteria, and then stimulate collagen production so that the skin naturally rejuvenates and “fills in” pitted acne scars.

The Problem with Acne Creams

When it comes to freeing yourself of acne or acne scars, there’s a problem with acne creams. Just walk down the aisle of your local drugstore, and you’ll see several options from which you can choose. Or, visit a dermatologist for a prescription-strength solution. However, despite the fact that so many patients use acne creams, they still find that it doesn’t clear up their acne or prevent it, or fill in their acne scars. For that reason, laser treatment has been invented to treat acne, as well as for laser acne scar removal.

What Can You Expect From the Halo Laser?

Admittedly, using acne creams may seem less intimidating for patients than using BBL to kill acne or undergo a laser acne scar removal treatment. But, there’s no need for you to worry. When you come to Health and Beauty Physicians for a consultation, Dr. Sani will examine your problem areas, listen to your concerns and desired outcomes, explain the Halo laser treatment process, and give you his professional opinion about what results you can realistically expect to see.

On your procedure days, the Health and Beauty Physicians staff will make sure you are completely comfortable while always putting your health and safety first. While many patients report that treatment with the Halo laser for acne scar removal or laser acne scar removal is painless, Dr. Sani will apply a topical anesthetic to your face to make you as comfortable as possible. During your treatment, you’ll wear protective eyewear, lie down and have Dr. Sani place the handheld device over your treatment area. You’ll need to follow a careful skincare regime for the first 24 hours after your procedure, after which you can usually resume your normal activities.
