Acne is not just a problem faced by teenagers. People of all ages can develop acne, not to mention the acne scars that remain. Acne and acne scars often cause people to feel self-conscious and insecure when it comes to their appearance. The best dermatologists understand that each case of acne or acne scarring needs to be addressed and consequently treated individually. Everyone’s skin is different and thus everyone experiences different degrees of acne related issues.
Our Laser treatment reduces acne inflammation through photoselective absorption and controlled heating effects. The deep heating effect safely penetrates the skin to an optimal treatment depth thermally and selectively destroys overactive sebaceous glands and bacteria.
You may experience mild swelling and dryness as well as a sensation similar to a sunburn for a few days after acne laser treatment. Patients are able to go back to work immediately following treatment. Even though you are able to return to regular activities, it is important to follow the aftercare instructions given to you by your skin care specialist. Failure to do so may delay or diminish the results of acne laser treatment. Completely avoid the sun for 48 hours after each treatment session. Depending on the type of acne laser treatment and the severity of your acne and acne scars, you may need anywhere from 3-10 treatments for optimal results. Patients typically begin to see improvement after their first acne laser treatment, and many return once or twice a year for continued results
