We offer a variety of acne laser therapies, laser facial and inflammatory acne blue light laser therapy... we can help with a number of conditions when other types of treatments have not been effective.

Laser Facial

Our Laser Facial is great for treating mild to moderate acne. The light warming sensation kills surface bacteria and reduces oil production while reducing inflammation surrounding acne lesions.  Our teens and adults love it because it is painless, mildly relaxing and immediate results.  Can be added before any laser or microneedling treatment.  Also great in helping improve Acne Scars as it helps produce fibroblasts that produce collagen necessary in helping rebuild scarring.  

Inflammatory Acne Blue Light Laser Therapy

How does blue light technology work?

Blue light kills the acne-causing bacteria known as Propionibacterium acnes, or P acnes, which can cause inflammation. P acnes is sensitive to blue light. Using the blue light, eliminates the bacteria found in the oil glands in the skin. The added presence of infrared light (heat) causes the oil glands to shrink in size. The result is less oil in the skin and less bacteria, leading to the resolution of acne in the treated areas.

Why is it effective?

Eliminating the bacteria from the skin with help from blue light decreases the inflammation associated with red pimples (papules) seen in acne. After a number of treatments, the blemishes disappear and skin regains its normal appearance.

Treatment Plans

Treatment plans vary depending on the severity of acne in the phototherapy candidate. The average treatment plan is eight treatments over the course of two weeks. More severe cases may require longer initial treatment protocols with two treatments per week for six weeks. Treatment time ranges from 20 to 40 minutes per session. Results from one treatment series are not permanent. As such, candidates should know that ongoing treatments will be required to maintain results. More aggressive maintenance protocols may be required for more progressive or severe cases of acne.
