Benefits of Laser Acne Treatments

If you or someone you love is among the 50 million Americans who struggle with acne, you know that it is a skin condition that is often painful and confidence-killing to those who experience it. And even more unfair is that oftentimes the scarring left behind from acne can be worse than the initial breakout.  

The good news is that at Timeless Skin Solutions we have laser acne treatments for both active acne and acne scarring.  

What is the best laser acne treatment? 

AviClear is the first and only FDA-cleared energy device for the treatment of mild, moderate, and severe acne. It specifically targets the source of the oil (sebum) produced by your skin, which means you will produce less oil, your acne will get better, and it will stay better. 

As dead skin cells and pollution mix with the skin’s sebum, pores become clogged and can create and promote a cycle of breakouts. AviClear provides lasting acne improvement without significant side effects. Patients can expect Accutane results without the hassle and side effects of this long-standing acne medication. 

In addition to reducing existing acne, clinical trials show that future breakout episodes are shorter, less intense, and more infrequent following the AviClear treatment. In fact,  of patients in the clinical trial who responded to treatment, 80% saw at least half of their acne clear, and nine out of 10 patients were satisfied or very satisfied with their results within six months after their final treatment. 

Can lasers help with acne scarring?  

Now about those acne scars. As an acne breakout penetrates the skin, it causes damage to the skin and the tissue beneath it. The body then tries to repair the damage as the acne clears. Scarring results from the body’s natural healing process after tissue has been damaged. New collagen fibers are formed to repair the tear in the dermis, with a different texture and appearance than the rest of the skin. 

The team at Timeless Skin Solutions has a variety of options to address acne scarring, including lasers.   

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) improves skin texture, tone, and color by using a specific wavelength of broad-spectrum light to gently and precisely treat deep under the skin’s surface. This light therapy treatment is often used to minimize or remove sun damage, acne scarring, age spots, freckles, birthmarks, varicose veins, rosacea, and more.  

IPL is frequently paired with Laser Genesis to improve the skin’s overall texture and tone to reveal the radiant glow you crave. It is a safe laser treatment that smooths fine lines and scars, improves the texture of the skin, and decreases redness and pore size with no downtime. 

It is important to the team at Timeless Skin Solutions that our patients have all the right facts, and are properly educated when it comes to skincare treatments.
