- Palomar Acne Laser treatments: Palomar® Systems use specialized handpieces which filter light from different parts of the spectrum. Different treatments such as hair reduction, sun spot removal or leg vein clearance require light of different wavelength bands. The LuxV handpiece filters light in the ideal band of the spectrum to affect acne. The LuxV concentrates the light into individual pulses which target acne-causing bacteria. The result is clearer looking skin and prevention of future breakouts.
- Steroid Injections for active acne: Inner Image offers Kenalog injections for clients with an ill-timed pimple (ie. prior to a big event), or a large pimple that is recurring or doesn’t respond to other treatments. Kenalog is a mild steroid, which can make most pimples disappear in 6-20 hours. It is injected directly into the pimple to help reduce redness and swelling almost immediately. By reducing the swelling, the pimple is easier to cover up with makeup and diminishes the appearance of a pimple.
