FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR ACNE LASER TREATMENT
Acne causes most patients pain, especially when it’s resistant to medication. If you’re struggling with difficult acne, Balance Hormone Center offers acne laser treatment for diminishing acne and removing acne scarring.
DOES LASER ACNE TREATMENT WORK?
Yes. According to studies completed by the American Academy of Dermatology, lasers can successfully reduce acne. Results will vary from person to person, with some patients requiring extra treatments depending on the extent of their acne.
HOW DOES LASER ACNE SCAR REMOVAL WORK?
The acne laser smooths your skin and stimulates collagen production. This allows the body to heal itself, lessening, and in some cases, eliminating the appearance of acne scars. We use an IPL or intense pulsed light laser, which penetrates down to the second layer of your skin, without damaging the top layer.
HOW MUCH IS LASER ACNE TREATMENT?
The cost of complete laser acne treatment varies depending on the size of the area that needs treatment and other factors. At Balance Hormone, our laser acne treatment costs $200 for a three-session package.
IS ACNE LASER TREATMENT PERMANENT? HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
No, acne laser treatment isn’t permanent. Yet, it is very effective. Results can be seen in as little as 12 hours after your treatment. The longevity of your results will depend on your skin type, size of the treatment area, type of acne and other factors.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
For the best results, we recommend starting with three treatments. After the initial three treatments, some patients may require more depending on the extent of the acne.
IS LASER ACNE TREATMENT PAINFUL?
Some discomfort may occur with your treatment, but you shouldn’t feel pain. Most lasers feel like rubber bands snapping lightly against the skin. Yet, the feeling of the laser will depend on the area of the treatment and the type of acne.
The most common complaint we receive is a slight headache after treatment. With some over-the-counter ibuprofen, this initial headache will subside.
