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 in Guilford?
