Laser acne treatments may be beneficial for adults and teenagers who have not had the results they want with oral or topical treatments. Laser treatments are non-invasive and provide a long-term remedy for acne breakouts.
Talk to Our Professionals
When you have a consultation with our qualified professionals, your acne will be examined. The number of laser acne treatments you need to achieve optimum results may depend on the severity of your acne. You can explain the types of topical treatments you have tried and any oral medication you have taken.
The Benefits of Laser Acne Treatment
The treatment is very convenient. It is done in our offices and only takes a matter of minutes depending on the acne being treated. You can have a session during your lunch break and get right back to work or any daily activity as there is no recovery time. It will most likely take more than one session to achieve the results you want but you may begin to see an improvement in your appearance after only a few sessions.
The treatment goes deep into your skin and destroys the bacteria that are the cause of the inflammation. It also damages the sebaceous gland that is overproducing the natural skin oil, which combines with the bacteria and dead skin cells to produce acne. This is one reason laser acne treatments provide long-lasting results. The treatment helps to remove other skin blemishes such as scars and fine lines. It leaves your skin with a smoother texture. Lasers are also one of the best treatments for acne scars. If you already have scars, we may be able to minimize their appearance. You should ask about acne scar removal when you talk to our specialist.
How It Works
According to the type of acne you have, the correct laser will be used. There are different types of lasers for pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, nodules and cysts. The laser is focused on the breakout with a short burst of light. It gradually destroys the bacteria that are the cause of the inflammation.
What to Expect
If our specialist considers you a good candidate for laser acne treatments, you will be given instructions on how to prepare for the treatment. You may be asked to avoid the sun for a period o time. During the procedure, you and the attending professional will wear appropriate eye protection. After the treatment, you will be given instructions for caring for your new skin.
