Laser Acne Treatment
A safe and effective way to treat acne (even cases resistant to conventional therapies), improve the skin and minimize scar formation.
What are the benefits?
Laser acne treatment offers a no down-time approach to help clear acne lesions and help reduce severity of future breakouts. You can return to work or school immediately after treatment. The only side effect will be slight facial redness. Laser treatments do not have the side effects seen with oral and topical treatments. Laser treatment DO NOT induce prolonged dryness, severe redness, or mental depression.
How does it work?
Dr. Rafael Diaz-Yoserev will analyze your skin condition and help you select the most effective treatment for you.
When will you see results?
Effects are cumulative. After the first treatment, you might see improvements. The number of lesions and severity of breakouts should reduce over the course of treatments and beyond. Some patients continue to improve two months after their last treatment.
How often can you have it done?
The typical course of treatments is 2-3 weeks, 2-3 treatments per week.
What can you expect immediately after treatment?
Immediately following the procedure you may experience some redness and slight swelling. The redness and swelling usually dissipate within one to three days. If necessary, makeup can be applied to the treated area immediately. It is extremely important to apply a moisturizer with SPF30 sunblock and avoid sun exposure daily to prevent sun damage.
How long does it take?
This treatment takes approximately 30-60 minutes.
