How Acne Treatments Works

Woman getting laser face treatment in medical spa centerFirst, use a facial cleanser to clear the face of makeup, lotions and excess oils then place a professional set of protective goggles over your eyes. The provider performing the active acne treatments will then move the laser across your skin, pulsing it while each beam of light works to eliminate the skins issues.

Although your eyes are closed and covered with goggles, you may still see a flash of light, hear an audible tone and feel a mild sensation on the skin that will tell you when the laser is being pulsed. The sensation produces little to no discomfort. While targeting problematic or pigment discolorations in the skin, without damaging surrounding tissue.

Following the laser treatment, cool compress should be applied, there is little to no downtime. In a quick, affordable 30-minute session, your skin rejuvenation and toning process are well underway! You may experience slight redness, but typically most goes away within minutes, although some patients experience redness up to 24 hours. Crusting may appear wherever there is a dark spot; this will subside within 5-10 days. Try to keep this natural skin protection on as long as possible, do not try to exfoliate off early. Avoid sun exposure for 2 weeks.  Sun exposure is not recommended between laser sessions, so if you are receiving more than one laser treatment, stay out of the sun as much as possible between appointments and use at least SPF 30 on your face repeatedly, at all times. This will to reduce the chances of pigmentation returning.

Fractional Laser (Acne Scars) – This laser works by delivering an array of high-precision microbeams to create deep, narrow columns of coagulation in epidermis and dermis. This triggers a restorative natural healing process that creates new, healthy tissue including collagen. In other words, it vaporizes a fraction of microscopic columns of the skin instead of surface acne which allows for a faster recovery. It also causes the new skin to grow back tighter, smoother and without the scar or other uneven skin issues.

Cynosure Picosure, Focus Lens Array – This device is the only laser that can be used to treat darker skin colors, but also multiple skin conditions including pigments and acne scars. This incomparable system produces extremely short pulses of energy in the skin’s deepest layers within a trillionth of a second. The laser is 100x faster than most other lasers and delivers quick results with fewer treatments.
