Laser Acne Treatment
Combat inflammation, and reduce the severity and frequency of breakouts, whilst also diminishing redness and pigmentation.
How does the laser treatment work?
Light emitted directly targets the overactive sebaceous glands, greatly reducing the total number and severity of active lesions. This lessens inflammation and frequency of breakouts. The light stimulates the production of new collagen to improve skin texture, scarring and can also reduce the appearance of red or brown areas of skin that are often associated with acne breakouts.
What does the treatment feel like?
Treatment is mildly uncomfortable but there is no need for anaesthesia and the procedure is actually quite quick. Sensations vary but most people describe the treatment as feeling like a very quick, hot pinprick.
How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions required varies from client to client and is dependent on many factors. Though results can been seen after a few treatments, a minimum of 4 and up to 8 treatments, at 4-week intervals, deliver the best results.
Who is suitable for treatment?
Almost everyone can be treated, apart from tanned individuals. If you are pregnant or taking Roaccutane (an acne medication) it is best not to undergo treatment until
you have been off the medication for a minimum of 6 months.
