Who is a candidate for laser acne treatment?

Laser acne treatments are an excellent option for individuals with chronic or severe acne that cannot find an effective at home or over the counter treatment.

About Laser Acne Treatment

  • How does laser treatment heal acne and acne scars?

    Laser Acne TreatmentTThe elos Plus laser system uses radiofrequency and non-radiofrequency energy from intense pulsed light, or IPL, to treat your acne. The heat energy from the laser shrinks the sebaceous glands that produce oil in the skin and kill acne-causing bacteria.

    The advanced laser technology also treats acne scarring by stimulating the production of more elastin and collagen, which are skin-strengthening compounds, to regenerate your skin’s texture.

  • What results can I expect from laser acne treatment?

    You will see the clearing of your acne, but it may not disappear completely. Use it as an adjunct therapy to good skin care and other acne treatments. The results do vary from person to person; Dr. Bokhari can give you a good idea of your results, but there’s no absolute test to tell exactly how well your skin will respond to laser acne treatment.

  • When will I see results?

    It takes time to see results from laser acne treatment, and it may take a series of treatments to achieve optimal changes. Generally, you should see a reduction in acne and the appearance of acne scarring in four to 12 weeks.
    You may need follow-up treatments once or twice a year to maintain your results.

  • What kind of downtime should I expect following laser acne treatment?

    Laser treatment is non-surgical, meaning you’ll experience no blood loss, incisions, or sutures, and the risk of infection is very low. With a non-ablative laser, like the elos Plus, you can return to your normal daily activities immediately after a treatment session. You may have some redness and swelling right afterward, but this should dissipate within a day or two.

    Do be extra careful to apply sunscreen daily following laser treatment as your skin may be more sensitive than usual.
