What is Laser Acne Treatment?
It is possible to treat your common acne, or acne vulgaris, with acne laser treatments. While laser treatment is not going to cure your acne, our board-certified general surgeon and medical director, Dr. Matthew Lynch, can perform laser acne treatments to help manage your symptoms and breakouts. Lynch Vein & Aesthetics in Peoria, AZ is happy to offer noninvasive laser treatments with our Harmony XL PRO platform by Alma Lasers to patients with active acne. You may have new or recurrent blemishes on your face, collarbone, upper back, shoulders, chest, and arms. When you have done all you know how to do to clear your acne with no success, it may be time to see a medical professional for assistance. Dr. Lynch offers laser acne treatments to men and women of all ages (yes, adults get acne, too) for healthy skin and aesthetically pleasing results. After completing several sessions of laser acne treatments, many of our Peoria, AZ men and women see huge improvements in their skin and are delighted with the outcomes. We invite you to reach out and receive more details about our laser acne treatments and set up an appointment.

About Your Acne Aftercare
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.
Do I qualify for laser acne treatments?
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.
Our Laser Acne Treatments
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 Harmony XL PRO 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.
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.
