Why Acne Laser Treatment Might Be Right for You

Jun '23

Acne laser treatment can be an effective way to achieve the clearer skin that you’ve always desired. Whether you’re dealing with residual acne scars, current breakouts, or both, this skin solution yields long-lasting effects so you can boost your confidence. Here’s what you should know about acne laser treatment in Westchester before booking an appointment at SkinCenter.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Acne Laser Treatment?

Laser therapy might be for you if your skin has negative reactions to other types of acne treatments, such as hormone, retinoid, and antibiotic-based lotions or oral medicines. Acne lasers also work best for those with mild to moderate inflammatory acne characterized by cysts, papules, and pustules.

How Does Acne Laser Treatment Work?

Acne lasers help reduce residual scars and current inflammation by targeting two main causes of breakouts: bacteria and sebum. During a laser therapy session, the light and heat from the laser device will penetrate through your skin layers. This, in turn, breaks down bacteria walls and kills some of the bacteria present in the skin. Laser treatment also reduces sebum in the skin. With less bacteria and sebum, your body’s healing system will receive a boost, resulting in a clearer complexion with fewer breakouts.

What Are the Types and Combinations of Laser Treatment?

There are a range of different acne lasers to pick from when choosing this treatment. Diode laser, ND:YAG laser, KTP laser, and pulsed dye lasers are four popular options. When you book a complementary consultation at SkinCenter, one of our providers will guide you to the right laser type to fit your skin’s condition and your cosmetic goals.

It’s also worth noting that laser therapy can be most beneficial in combination with other therapies. For instance, we might recommend laser therapy along with a topical treatment cream to  help you reach your ideal skin.

How Long Do Results Last?

The duration of results from acne laser therapy varies from person to person. Factors such as acne severity, your skin’s condition, and how an individual responds to treatment all play a role in how long a person will notice significantly clearer skin. However, many SkinCenter clients have experienced great success with laser therapy as part of their customized acne treatment plan.
