At Schweiger Dermatology Group, we take a comprehensive approach to acne treatments. We treat acne with a combination of at-home care and in-office treatments. We offer the below laser treatments for acne to help our patients achieve clear, blemish-free skin they can be proud of.
Laser Treatments for Acne
We fight acne with cutting edge procedures and in-office light and laser acne treatments. Your dermatology provider will work with you to determine the best approach to treating your acne with laser therapy. Patients with acne benefit most from red/blue light therapy, photodynamic therapy (PDT) and the Isolaz laser treatments. These non-invasive laser treatments decrease the p. acnes bacteria, halt sebum production and are anti-inflammatory. Here’s a closer look at these acne laser treatments:
- Isolaz Laser for Acne: The Isolaz laser treatment uses a gentle vacuum suction to clear out the pores and a light to kill the p. acnes bacteria inside the pores. This treatment has given our patients terrific results.
- Blue Light and Red Light Therapy: Used in conjunction, these LED- based blue and red light therapies painlessly work to kill P. acnes bacteria as well as greatly reduce the inflammation associated with acne lesions.
- Photodynamic Therapy (PDT): A blue light activates a topical medication which then helps to kill bacteria that causes acne and also shrinks oil-producing glands in the skin.
The Acne Specialists at Schweiger Dermatology Group
Our dermatology providers understand how difficult dealing with acne breakouts can be. Our goal at Schweiger Dermatology Group is to work one on one with patients until their skin clears and their confidence is restored.
Are You Suffering From Acne?
Finding the best acne treatments can be a daunting task. Most of the over 50 million Americans afflicted with acne take it upon themselves and brave the drugstore aisles to find a cure for their acne. Acne is the number one skin concern in the country, meaning there’s a lot of people out there self-treating their skin condition with mostly disappointing results. If you have acne breakouts, then you’re aware of how frustrating and embarrassing this skin condition can be and how tough it is to put an end to it.
The good news is that if addressed early and properly, acne is treatable. This means seeing a dermatology provider can mean the difference between clear and beautiful skin and blemished skin. It is also crucial to incorporate laser acne treatments and other in-office procedures to help get acne under control faster.

We take a holistic approach to acne, meaning we look at a patient’s lifestyle and create a skincare regimen and acne treatment program to properly manage and treat their specific skin and type of acne. Our dermatology providers work closely with acne patients to customize a regimen that is right for their skin.
