Laser Acne Treatment
How does Laser Acne Treatment work?
The low powered and gentle blue light is selectively absorbed by the acne causing bacteria. The bacteria becomes inactive. Red light is used to stimulate the body’s mechanism to heal the treated areas. Red light also reduces inflammation and redness in the skin.
What areas can be treated?
All parts of the body can be treated, but the blue light / red light treatments are primarily used for the face and upper back.
How long does the procedure take?
20 minutes for blue light alone and 40 minutes for both blue and red light treatments.
Is it painful? Is it safe?
No. You may feel a warm sensation. Blue and red light treatments are painless and easy.Complications are extremely rare. In less than 1% of cases, skin lightning or darkening may occur. It is advisable to wear sunblock when in the sun during the month following laser treatment.
How many treatments are required? What results can I expect?
It depends on the severity of acne. Typically 8 treatments in intervals of 2 treatments per week (4 weeks total) are recommended. Some see a difference in as little as 1 - 2 treatments. Although 100% of the acne symptoms may not be cleared, a significant reduction in new pimples should be noticed.
