Acne treatment in Albany, OR

You Deserve Clear Skin

Acne, meet your match

If you struggle with persistent acne, you know how difficult it can be to get breakouts under control.

Cosmetics companies hawk cleansers, creams, and acids that promise miracles, but frequently fall short of expectations. Home remedies are unproven and inconsistent. Prescription medications can offer relief, but may come with negative side effects that outweigh the benefits.

Forever Clear BBL™ is a powerful new weapon in the battle of the blemishes. With this advanced acne treatment, Dr. Scott Levitt and the team of Levitt Medical Aesthetics can not only treat existing acne, but help prevent breakouts from coming back. Schedule a consultation for an acne treatment in Albany, OR to find out how the power of light can clear your acne and give you the beautiful skin you deserve.

How it works

BroadBand Light (BBL) is a cutting-edge intense pulsed light (IPL) device manufactured by Sciton.

 Its adjustable wavelengths enable targeted treatment for a range of conditions that affect the skin, including vascular lesions, pigmentation, early signs of aging and unwanted hair. Forever Clear BBL is an acne-specific treatment that sends light energy deep into your skin to attack breakout-causing bacteria at its source and clear your complexion of acne-related redness. BroadBand Light therapy is fast and noninvasive, and can leave you with visible results in just one session.

First, it treats the skin with blue light that eliminates acne-causing bacteria deep down in the pores, where it originates.

Next, it treats the skin with yellow light that reduces the inflammation and redness that commonly accompanies acne.

Finally, the skin is treated with infra-red light that stimulates the body’s natural healing properties to regenerate healthy skin cells. The result is a clearer, smoother, and more radiant complexion that lasts.

Forever Clear BBL is a multi-step treatment that uses three wavelengths of light to get even the most stubborn breakouts under control.

What to expect

BBL Forever Clear treatments require little, if any, downtime.

The treated area may be red or flushed at first, but this usually fades within a few hours. You can reapply your makeup as soon as we finish your treatment so you can return to your daily routine without delay. As with any procedure, you will need to follow our aftercare instructions until your skin is fully healed — typically about one week after your BBL acne treatment in Albany, OR.

You can expect to see improvements in your skin after just one session, but patients often achieve the best results with a series of treatments.

A typical course of treatment may involve six to eight sessions performed at one to two-week intervals. After the initial series is complete, you may need to return for periodic touch-ups. We will design a treatment plan that is personalized for your skin and your goals, to ensure you receive the best possible care on a schedule that works for you.

FAQ

Acne is a skin disorder that stems from a mixture of hormonal imbalances and external substances affecting the oil glands and hair follicles. For some, acne is just a mild frustration leading to the occasional pimple or two. For others, acne is constant and difficult to ignore, covering the entire face, causing pain & distress, and increasing the chance for the appearance of more troubling cosmetic concerns. When acne is left untreated, it can lead to visible scars and permanent discoloration. Over-the-counter creams and medications, changes to diet, and changes to your facial skin care routine are some available options to wage the war on acne. Unfortunately, these options are not effective for everyone.

Men and women of all ages who want healthy, beautiful skin can be excellent candidates for BBL therapy. Forever Clear BBL acne treatments are ideal for mild to moderate inflammatory and pustular inflammatory acne vulgaris, and can be performed on most areas of the body. The face, neck, chest and back are the most popular areas for treatment. The device is safe and effective for most skin colors, and is gentle enough to be used as an acne treatment for sensitive skin.

With just one or two treatments, you will notice changes in your skin. Redness is minimized and breakouts are clearing. The total number of treatments required varies from patient to patient. Dr. Levitt will personalize a treatment plan for you.

This procedure is very safe and non-invasive. Most patients do not require a topical anesthetic, but we can make one available to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment. If you are concerned about discomfort during the procedure, we also offer Pro-Nox for rapid relief of pain and anxiety. The Pro-Nox system administers a patient-controlled dose of a 50/50 mix of oxygen and nitrous oxide, which takes effect in seconds and wears off in just a few minutes.

Dr. Levitt is very precise!

Dr. Levitt takes the time one needs to be heard and never pushed me toward a treatment I didn’t want or need. He’s kind, smart, and a real human being. Drove two hours just to get an ablative facial service. He has great care protocols and made the experience comfortable. Will keep coming back.
