What is Laser Acne Treatment?
Crave Med Spa has an effective, gentle and safe procedure for troublesome acne. Our laser acne treatment uses a laser to target overactive sebaceous (oil) glands in your skin. These glands are the root cause of acne. Medical lasers have been used for over two decades to treat a variety other medical conditions, not just acne and acne scarring.
Our doctors will evaluate your condition, and then see which acne treatment plan would best suit your individual needs. Please contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
What Are The Benefits Of Laser Acne Treatment?
Minimal side effects may include swelling or slight redness that lasts only a few hours to a few days. Of course, recovery and side effects vary from patient to patient. Our physicians will explain what to expect during and after your laser acne treatment at the time of your visit. In rare cases, some patients experience a temporary pigmentation change in the area that is treated.
If you already have scars from acne when you were younger, the laser acne treatment can help you. Collagen, which is at the same skin depth as your sebaceous glands, is also targeted by the laser light.
The very slight dermal injury caused by the laser light creates the production and deposition of newly organized collagen underneath the skin, resulting in significant improvement in the appearance of the acne scars.

Most people see clearing, but it’s not 100%. That’s because in order to get optimal results, most people need a series of multiple treatments. Results also vary from person to person.
Laser treatment reduces the appearance of acne scars. It uses a focused light to remove the outer layer of skin and stimulate the production of new skin cells to cover the damaged skin cells.
You may feel itching or stinging for 24 to 72 hours after the treatment. Five to seven days after the treatment, your skin will become dry and peel so that new skin can surface.
The process exfoliates the skin, reduces pore size, evens out skin tone, and makes the skin softer and more radiant. The facial treatment is beneficial for people with oily skin.
