Your acne treatment consultation

During your acne treatment consultation, we will check your skin and let you know what your acne condition is like. You will discuss your acne problems, goals, and expectations of the procedure. You will also receive instructions to prepare your skin before and after the treatment and learn how much it will cost.

It’s best to be prepared to talk about your experience regarding previous acne treatments. This will help us find the best treatment for your skin. Discuss how long you’ve had acne, what factors make it worse, and whether other family members have the same problem.

Treatment options include:

  • Microdermabrasion – This involves spraying tiny crystals onto your skin to remove the skin’s outer layer. Because it is very gentle, you will not need numbing medicine. It leaves your skin feeling softer and looking brighter.
  • Chemical Peels – These are chemical solutions applied to the skin to help dead skin peel off, giving way to new skin that is less wrinkled and smoother than the old layer of skin.
  • Mixto Fractionated CO2 – This is a new skin rejuvenation treatment that uses a laser, which targets the dermis with its uniform tissue ablation, causing the skin to contract and tighten. It also promotes collagen production for 6-12 weeks.
  • Acne Laser Peels – This uses a laser beam to remove the outer layer of dead and damaged skin. It also targets the dermis, or underlying skin, to promote collagen production and help your skin develop a better texture and tone.
  • Acne Light Therapy – This uses red and blue light to provide the skin with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects. Blue light is used to clear acne and treat inflammatory breakouts.
  • AANP | The American Association of Nurse Practitioners
  • The Dermatology Nurse’s Association
  • American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities

Your Acne treatment will be performed by our providers in Yolo Laser Center & Med Spa‘s safe and clean facility located in Guilford, CT.


Commonly Asked Questions about Laser Acne Treatment at Yolo Laser Center & Med Spa in Guilford

  • What is Laser Acne Treatment?

    Laser Acne Treatment employs laser or IPL light energy to shrink the sebaceous glands beneath the skin or to reduce bacterial counts. Acne is caused by overactive sebaceous glands in the skin. The sebaceous glands release sebum (oil), which can clog the pores, leaving the sebum trapped beneath the skin. The resulting black and white heads (comedones) may cause the bacterium Propronibacterium acnes (P. acnes) to flourish, which can cause inflammation, pustules and nodules in the skin.

  • Is a Laser Acne Treatment painful?

    Most patients experience minimal discomfort during an Laser Acne Treatment.

  • How long is a typical Laser Acne Treatment?

    Acne Laser Treatment time varies based upon the areas being treated. Photodynamic therapy takes longer because the applied medication need time to absorb into the skin.

  • What are the side effects of Laser Acne Treatment?

    Laser Acne Treatment has mild side effects. Depending on the types of treatment utilized patients may experience slight skin discoloration and minor swelling. Downtime is minimal afer BBL treatment and most patients can resume normal activities immediately. After photodynamic therapy patients must avoid direct sunlight for 36 hours and may experience swelling, redness and flaking skin for a few days.

  • What results can I expect?

    Although results vary from patient to patient, many patients see a marked improvement in difficult-to-treat acne. How Much Does Laser Acne Treatment cost at Yolo Laser Center & Med Spa in Guilford? Laser Acne Treatment varies in cost depending upon final treatment recommnendations made by the clinician. Please contact us for a more specific cost.

YOLO is amazing! I come here to get cortisone shots for any mean zits that come up, and I also come regularly for facials. Nikki is great at administering the shots with comfort! She also understands skin very well and offers effective products that have helped. Debbie is great with my facials. She has a gentle touch which is perfect for my sensitive skin! And finally, Jess is so awesome at accommodating my difficult schedule, always managing to fill me in at a convenient time. I’d highly recommend YOLO! I’ve been to many med spas all over the world and few compare!
