Laser Acne Treatment

The Laser Acne Treatment is catered to your specific acne concerns to reduce bacteria, suppress the sebaceous glands, and decrease the redness and inflammation caused by acne. The laser minimizes the appearance of pores, creating a smoother skin texture overall.

Get The Facts

Through a series of multiple steps, we can create deep heating within the skin to produce positive effects to treat acne. Heating the skin with the laser creates an environment where the acne-causing bacteria will no longer thrive. The laser stimulates cellular turnover, which reduces the build-up of dead skin cells that cause congestion. Spot treatments on cyst formations further reduce inflammation and redness.
