Laser Acne Treatment in Los Angeles
Many people suffer from acne at some point in their lives, and while it is more common in the teen years, many also struggle with adult acne or the acne scars that never fully went away. Acne is one of the most common skin diseases out there and it can come in several different forms, from whiteheads to pimples. For those who deal with acne, it can be a very embarrassing condition and extremely difficult to cover up. At Wave Plastic Surgery, we offer men and women an effective solution to their problems with acne or acne scarring, using laser and light based treatments by Lutronic.
How Does Laser Acne Treatment Work?
The creams and washes that are so highly marketed on TV don’t always work for everyone. Anyone who struggles with acne knows that it is not as easy as dousing your face with a handful of water and letting the product work its magic. Many of us end up spending hundreds of dollars trying out new products, but without seeing the results they want.
Laser and light based acne treatment is a new, more effective way to win your fight against acne and acne scars. During your consultation, we will carefully analyze your skin to determine the best treatment option for you. Our trained plastic surgeons in LA, Rowland Heights and Irvine know how to treat a variety of different skin types, ensuring that you receive the proper treatment that is best for your unique condition.
Using the chosen laser or light based treatment, we can dramatically improve your skin, helping to control and reduce your acne. Follow up visits may be necessary to maintain ongoing results until the problem fully goes away. Most patients only need to come in about once every three or so months.
One of our most popular laser for treating acne is Fractora & Agnes.
Fractora is the most advanced fractional radio-frequency treatment providing anti-aging improvements on skin tone and texture for a more radiant appearance through ablation and skin resurfacing. Fractora delivers improvements in the broadest range of symptoms of aging skin including fine lines, acne, deep lines, texture, pigment irregularities, blood vessels, and redness.
Agnes can provide a permanent improvement to acne breakouts without the side effects of anti-acne drug therapy. The treatment is effective as it targets the root of the problem because acne is an inflammatory disorder of the hair follicle arising from sebaceous glands, destruction of these sebaceous glands effectively reduces acne. Once the sebaceous glands are destroyed, acne subsides and is unlikely to recur. Less than 10% of acne recurred within a year after the final treatment session, making this a truly effective long-term solution for acne.
How Long Will it Take to Recover from Acne Treatment?
Following your acne treatment, you are free to go on about your daily routine without the need for any down time. Your skin may be sensitive and there might be some slight redness, but this will often fade over the next couple of days. Once your treatment is complete, you will notice a much clearer, healthier looking complexion.
