Laser for Active Acne

Acne can be a painful and debilitating condition, both physically and emotionally. It can often destroy our self-confidence, particularly in those who have battled with stubborn acne over a long period of time, or for those with sudden-onset adult acne who have never before experienced problematic skin in their lives.

What many people don’t realise is that laser treatments can be used very effectively to combat active acne. Wonderfully versatile, not only do our laser treatments provide excellent results when it comes to anti-ageing, pigmentation and skin rejuvenation, but the heat generated by the treatment destroys acne-causing bacteria, as well as helping to facilitate our skin’s natural healing process to help reduce the chances of post-acne scarring.

What to expect

Which lasers do you use, and how does the treatment work?

At The Skin Lab, we utilise our Laser Genesis laser treatments to combat active acne. This works by applying warming laser energy to the treatment area which is directly absorbed by the dermis. This heat not only destroys bacteria, but also triggers the skin’s natural wound healing process and accelerates the production of collagen and elastin for younger looking, tighter skin.

How many treatments do I need?

A course of treatments is generally required to see a substantial reduction in acne. Plans will vary from patient to patient but generally, 3-5 sessions, performed every 4 weeks is required to see optimal results.

I’m booked in for a treatment! Do I need to do anything beforehand?

Great! We look forward to welcoming you to The Skin Lab. Prior to your treatment, we ask that you avoid excessive sun exposure. Please note that some skin types may be advised to prep the skin with topical skincare prior to laser treatment.

What happens during my treatment?

All The Skin Lab skin treatments begin with a comprehensive consultation where you’ll share your medical history, background and treatment goals. Together, we’ll formulate a treatment plan to achieve your objectives, which may include other treatments and skincare.

During your procedure, you will experience a gentle warming sensation as the laser is applied to your skin, which many people describe as relaxing and even like warm rain on the skin.

What can I expect afterwards?

Following your treatment, your skin may appear pink for a few hours post-treatment which can be easily concealed with mineral makeup.
