Laser Acne Treatment
DermaTouch offers laser treatments that can safely and effectively reduce acne and improve the appearance of acne scars in adults and teens. Acne-prone areas that can be treated with lasers include the face, neck, chest, shoulders and back.
How It Works
Laser treatment involves the controlled heating of the skin’s epidermal-dermal boundary to treat overactive sebaceous glands. This also promotes gradual collagen remodeling and the proliferation of active fibroblasts, which improves the appearance of acne scars without ablation.
Different light wavelengths can be used in laser acne treatment. Your DermaTouch RN practitioner will assess the condition of your skin and select the most effective laser acne treatment accordingly.
What to Expect: Real, Noticeable Results
Your Botox treatment will only take a few minutes. A DermaTouch nurse will use a fine needle to inject the Botox into specific muscles. You will experience only minor discomfort and no anesthesia is needed.
On average, most patients will see results within 72 hours after Botox injections. For a few individuals it may take as many as 8-10 days after treatment for decreased muscle movement. You may see a marked improvement in the moderate-to-severe frown lines between your brows, also. Wrinkles and lines continue to improve for up to 30 days after treatment and results can last for up to 4 months. Individual results may vary.
What to Expect
The effects of laser acne treatment are cumulative with regard to both the number and the severity of breakouts. Many patients see positive effects soon after their first session and continue to notice improvements up to two months after their last.
What are the benefits of laser acne treatment?
Lasers offer none of the downsides common to traditional oral and topical acne treatments, such as severe redness, longer downtimes and prolonged dryness and photosensitivity. Some prescription medications can also affect the patient’s mood.
Laser acne treatment can serve as both a complement or an alternative to traditional acne treatment. It’s important that you consult your dermatologist on the various treatment options available to you.
How long does treatment take?
A single laser acne treatment session can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes.
What can I expect immediately after treatment?
Most patients experience slight redness and swelling, which dissipates in about one to three days. Daily application of moisturizer and sunblock (SPF 45 or higher) is important, as well as avoiding sun exposure. Your DermaTouch practitioner will advise you on how soon you can apply makeup and other skin-care products after treatment.
How often can I undergo laser acne treatment?
Four to six treatments in two-week intervals is common, although some patients may require more frequent treatments (up to two sessions per week). Your DermaTouch practitioner will determine what treatment schedule will work best for you.
Is Laser Acne Treatment for Me?
If you suffer from acne breakouts or acne scarring and have not responded well to oral and topical acne treatments, you may be a candidate for laser acne treatment.
During your assessment, your DermaTouch practitioner will assess your skin and advise you on whether laser acne treatment is right for you.
