Laser Acne Treatment with elōs™ Technology
Laser acne treatment uses a specific spectrum of light to target acne-causing bacteria. By combining light and radiofrequency energies, the treatment can decrease the proliferation of bacteria. It can also prevent over-production of oil in the sebaceous gland, to promote healing of the skin after an acne breakout.
If you are seeking an alternative to traditional acne treaments, laser acne treatment may be right for you. At our Denver office, we can use the AC Applicator to treat acne on your face, chest, or back.
What results can one expect from the AC Applicator treatment?
After a series of treatments, most patients see faster healing of their acne lesions. Both the frequency and severity of acne lesions should subside as the treatments progress. Ongoing treatments can help to prevent acne break-outs and promote skin healing.
How often do you need treatments?
Laser acne treatments are usually performed twice a week for 4-6 weeks. Each treatment session takes about 15 minutes. After the initial treatment series, additional treatments (spread out over a longer interval) can fine-tune your therapy and maintain the results.
What happens after each treatment?
Pinkness in the skin lasts a short time. Most patients return to work or normal activities immediately after treatment. Although every patient responds differently, many patients report improvement as early as three weeks into the treatment series.
Is laser acne treatment safe?
Treatment is very safe for all skin tones, even very dark skin. Advances in AC technology make it one of the safest acne treatment systems available. There are no long-term health hazards from these light or radio-frequency energies. Both have been used for decades in medicine, surgery, and aesthetics.
How does the treatment feel?
Patients often describe it as a hot pinching feeling, which lasts for a fraction of a second. You may feel warmth or a tingling sensation for a short time as well. The cooling tip, which touches the skin, will enhance your comfort and safety. Topical numbing cream is not usually necessary for this procedure.
