The FDA has approved the use of Lasers to treat acne. It is a quick, painless procedure that results in a major improvement in acne, including faster healing of existing acne lesions. Many patients can reduce or eliminate the medications they are using for acne after laser treatment.
How Acne Laser Treatment Works
The laser used in our office is the only laser that treats acne with two wavelengths of laser light. As a result, it treats both problems involved in acne formation: 1) the bacteria on the skin and 2) excess production of oil in the sebaceous glands. No other laser provides this dual technology for the treatment of acne. The first laser wavelength kills the P.acnes bacteria on the skin. This is the bacteria that causes acne. The second laser wavelength reduces the amount of oil produced by the sebaceous glands.
