Laser Acne Treatments
We’re pleased to offer a revolutionary new approach for adult and teen acne suffers. New research has shown our laser is a safe and effective treatment for acne on the face, chest or back.
What are the benefits?
Laser acne treatments offer a no down-time approach to help clear acne lesions and help reduce the severity of future break-outs. You can return to work or school immediately after treatment- the only side effect will be slight facial redness. Laser treatments do not have the side effects seen with oral and topical treatments. Laser treatments DO NOT induce prolonged dryness, severe redness or mental depression.
How does it work?
Your Houstonian Medical Associates medical professional will analyze your skin condition and help you select the most effective treatment for you.
When will you see results?
Effects are cumulative. After the first treatment, you might see improvements. The number of lesions and severity of break-outs should reduce over the course of treatment and beyond. Some patients continue to improve two months after their last treatment.
How often can you have it done?
The typical course of treatments is two weeks, two treatments per week. However, your doctor might recommend a different treatment schedule. What can you expect immediately post-treatment? Immediately following the procedure you may experience some redness and slight swelling. The redness and swelling usually dissipate within one to three days. If necessary, makeup can be applied to the treated area immediately. It is extremely important to apply a moisturizer with SPF30 sunblock and avoid sun exposure on a daily basis to prevent additional sun damage.
How long does it take?
This treatment takes approximately 30-60 minutes.
