How Lasers Treat Acne from the Inside Out

How Lasers Treat Acne from the Inside Out

Jun '22

If you’ve daydreamed about having smoother, clearer skin but haven’t yet found the right treatment for you, you’re in the right place. At SkinCenter, we’re committed to helping you ditch frustration, low self-confidence, blemishes, and acne scars.

While serums and creams can work wonders on acne at a surface level, sometimes you need something that works at a deeper level to bring about the smooth, clear skin that you’ve been dreaming about. That’s where laser treatments come in.

Let’s delve into the benefits of this treatment here at Westchester’s Best SkinCenter — and what to expect before and after a laser therapy session.

How common is acne and what are the benefits of laser therapy?

If you’re experiencing acne and acne scarring, you’re not alone. According to Cleveland Clinic, 80% of those in the 11- to 30-year-old demographic experience acne. And one out of five people in this group experience acne scarring.

Laser therapy can be an effective part of an acne treatment plan if you suffer from facial scarring and discoloration due to breakouts, particularly if topical treatments have delivered lackluster result or if you are looking for quick improvement. At SkinCenter, we suggest either the XEO Laser or the Laser Genesis, depending on your skin concerns and goals.

We recommend the XEO Laser for clients who are short on time but want faster results. This treatment is excellent at combating skin discoloration from acne scarring while minimizing signs of premature aging on the face, hands, neck, and arms. An XEO laser session typically lasts 20 minutes or less — and many of our clients  experience impressive, long-lasting results after just one treatment session.

If you’re looking for a more long-term solution, consider Laser Genesis. This laser helps you achieve clearer, more radiant skin by using controlled heat to kill the bacteria that causes acne and treat the overactive sebaceous glands that clog the pores, all while reducing the appearance of early acne scars and redness. Though you may see improvements immediately, we recommend a series of six treatments to achieve optimum results.

What does pre- and post-care look like for laser treatment?

A benefit of laser therapy is the minimal care required both before and after the treatment. There’s no special preparation needed before an XEO Laser or Laser Genesis session and there’s little to no downtime afterward. You will want to use cool compresses, as well as fragrance-free soaps and lotions, for a short time after your laser treatment. It’s also important to minimize sun exposure since your skin will be more sensitive than usual as it heals after your chosen service.
