Acne And Rosacea Getting You Down? Laser, Light And Cosmetic Treatments Give Patients A Much-Needed Boost
Date:2/3/2008

SAN ANTONIO, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- It is estimated that approximately 50 million people in the United States alone are affected by acne vulgaris, and another 14 million Americans experience the redness, flushing and pronounced blood vessels associated with rosacea. While there are no cures for these persistent skin conditions, dermatologists are broadening their treatment options to include laser, light and cosmetic therapies that are proving effective in managing these conditions and improving patient satisfaction.

Speaking today at the 66th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology, dermatologist Jenny J. Kim, MD, PhD, FAAD, assistant professor of medicine and dermatology at the David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), in Los Angeles, Calif., discussed the latest approaches for treating acne, acne scarring and rosacea with laser and light therapies -- by themselves, in combination with each other or with cosmetic treatments, such as fillers.

"Therapies using lasers for acne and rosacea have really increased in the last few years, with more clinical research being conducted that will help shed light on the effectiveness of these new applications," said Dr. Kim. "While not considered first-line therapies for either condition, lasers and light sources are becoming more widely used by dermatologists and offer patients an alternative to other treatments that might not be alleviating their symptoms."

Acne

It is estimated that Americans spend more than $1.2 billion each year on acne treatments, with medical treatments remaining the most commonly used options to curb acne flares. However, a host of medical and social concerns -- including the overuse of antibiotics, long-term antibiotic use, and the potentially serious side effects and governmental restrictions on the use of isotretinoin - have underscored the need for the use of new therapeutic options for acne treatments.
