We are proud to be an advanced laser training center for the industry. Because of the newest and latest technology, we are able to offer a fast, effective and safe method of destroying acne through the use of medical grade laser light. The heat that is generated from the medical grade light of the lasers is able to go into the skin, penetrate the acne cell wall and kill the acne causing bacteria.
Laser light activates your body’s natural acne fighting defenses, reducing the severity of current and future breakouts.
Using Laserscope’s FDA cleared green laser, light is delivered through the skin’s surface triggering the bodies’ natural bacteria fighting defenses. These defenses kill the problem causing bacteria, significantly reducing the severity of current and future breakouts.
After discussing your medical history, including any drugs you are currently taking, with your medical practitioner, the treatment area will be cleaned and a thin layer of gel will be applied. Your practitioner will glide the laser handpiece over the treatment area in a brushing motion as the laser light is pulsed through the skin.
Many patients say each laser pulse feel like the snap of a rubber band against the skin, though treatments over active acne may be more uncomfortable. Your medical practitioner may recommend a topical anesthetic in order to make treatments more comfortable.
Your face may appear slightly flushed and swollen, though these effects usually subside after a few hours or days. Sunscreen should be applied and, if you wish, make-up may be applied immediately after treatment, as the skin’s surface is not actually damaged by the laser. We recommend discussing if your make-up is appropriately formulated for acne sufferers.
Clinical data suggests that most patients find their acne will improve after the completion of about four treatments, two a week for two weeks. While many patients continue to improve in the months following treatment, some patients experience a plateau in their improvements. Repeated treatments may be necessary to maintain results.
