Acne Laser Treatment

Acne is a disorder resulting from the action of hormones and other substances on the skin’s oil glands, sebaceous glands and hair follicles.  Severe acne can lead to scarring. Using advanced treatment technology offered with the Sciton Forever Young BBL, allows our certified laser specialists to treat skin issues such as acne, redness, and hyperpigmentation that starts below the skin’s surface, which is why often times topical products alone are often ineffective. Forever Young BBL  allows us to reach the source of the problem resulting in patient satisfaction. This is done by using different wavelengths to allow for controlled heating of the sub-epidermal layers of the skin, thus targeting the acne generating bacteria without damage to skin.

Our laser specialist will customize a treatment plan for each individual client. Typically, the acne treatment is a done as a series. We have the client come in for a treatment once every week to every two weeks for about six sessions. This treatment series will lead to a reduction in acne and there are other procedures that can improve acne scarring.
