Am I a Candidate for laser acne treatment?

Men and women of all ages can experience mild to severe acne. If you have acne that just will not go away, even with professional treatment, you may benefit from a few laser acne treatments. Your skin may have blemishes, whiteheads, blackheads, or clogged pores on the skin of your face and upper body regularly with very little time in between breakouts. Lynch Vein & Aesthetics offers the newest laser technology on the market today that works well on most skin types. If you are unsure if laser acne treatments are appropriate for your skin, we extend our offer to you for a consultation with Dr. Lynch.

How is Laser Acne Treatment Performed?

After a consultation and review of your skin health, Dr. Lynch will make recommendations on how to proceed with laser acne treatments. If you decide to receive our laser acne treatments, we will schedule you several appointment times in the weeks that follow for optimal results.

When you come into our office for a Cutera laser acne treatment, we will prepare your facial skin in one of our private treatment rooms. We may also ask you to wear protective gear over your eyes for your protection. Dr. Lynch will use the dedicated handpiece for acne to slowly guide the laser energy on your skin. The light will work to rid your skin of blackheads and destroy any acne-causing bacteria. You will probably experience some irritation or a slight sensation on your skin throughout the laser application.

What Can I Expect After Laser Acne Treatment?

After your laser acne sessions, you may see some redness, bruising, or slight skin irritation in the treated areas. Dr. Lynch can give you specific instructions on how to best care for your skin type. We do recommend that you avoid unnecessary sun exposure to your skin in the recovery phase. Once your skin has healed from the laser acne treatments, your skin should have less active acne, feel smoother, and have a refined appearance. You may need 3 – 6 laser sessions to see the best results.

Laser Acne FAQ

How long does it take laser acne treatment to work?
Patients can see results within 7 – 10 days. However, you typically need multiple appointments to see optimal results. Our team will help you determine how many you need.

Is laser treatment for acne painful?
Taking about 30 minutes to complete, you may experience discomfort because the laser will snap against the skin. Because the procedure is short, many patients find it bearable.

What should I avoid after laser treatment?
You should avoid UV exposure for seven days after the treatment because your skin is sensitive. Additionally, do not pick your flaking skin, which occurs a few days following the procedure.

Can acne be permanently cured?
Right now, although acne can be diminished and temporarily relieved, there is no "permanent" treatment for acne. Practically everyone will deal with some level of acne at various points in their life. For some people, this condition can be intense, while for others, acne is occasionally if ever a concern. That's the reason why Dr. Lynch offers a multi-spectrum approach to treating acne that can be customized to your unique requirements.

Do specific foods lead to acne or make it worse?
For the most part, no, consuming certain foods does not cause acne. Much research has been carried out into the connection between certain food products and acne. However, the leading source of acne is hormonal changes that can prompt the oil glands under the skin to overproduce sebum, which can clog pores, resulting in acne outbreaks. While unverified, there are some foods believed to worsen acne symptoms, such as excessive fried foods, dairy items, food that contains saturated fats, foods made using a lot of processed sugar, and milk chocolate. The connecting factor between acne and these foods is that they may alter hormone numbers, which can lead to acne.

What causes acne?
The leading source of acne is hormonal fluctuations, which can trigger the oil glands within the skin to overproduce sebum (skin oil), which can obstruct pores, creating acne outbreaks. At Lynch Vein & Aesthetics, Dr. Lynch uses a personalized approach to reducing acne that looks at a range of issues to determine that your acne solution addresses the underlying source of your acne rather than just the symptoms.
