Conventional acne treatments can have side effects and when used aggressively can cause redness, peeling and irritation. When the bacteria crowds around the skin pores, pimples erupt, which is why it is important for the laser to separate the bacteria from the skin, to avoid damaging it too.
Acne Laser Remedy is a quick and safe procedure performed by a doctor, to target p.acnes bacteria and control oil production from the follicle itself, as it contributes to the bacteria forming.
The number of sessions needed depends on the severity of the acne problem and patient’s response but usually, a course of 4-5 sessions is recommended for optimum results.
- Cleaner, less oily skin
- Acne drying up faster
- No blemishes forming
The procedure typically requires about 20 minutes, depending on the surface areas treated.
Before the treatment, our therapist will gently cleanse the areas to be treated. After that, protective eye goggles will be placed on you.
Our doctor will perform the treatment by using a hand piece and shooting the selected acne with it. It feel like a tingling sensation on your skin that is noticeable but not painful with the cooling air blowing on it.
A daily moisturizer and sunblock are applied to soothe and protect your skin post-treatment. The entire procedure takes less than 15 minutes.
