What Is A Laser Acne Treatment?

Acne is one of many problems that can affect our ability to feel confident in our daily lives. People who experience acne tend to have severe pimples or inflamed cysts on their face, back, shoulder blades, around their breasts or chest, and arms. It may significantly impact your life, not only from an aesthetic standpoint but from an emotional one. If you have tried numerous prescriptions, gels, scrubs, or moisturizers but nothing appears to help, laser treatment with the cutting-edge Forever Clear BBL by Sciton® could be a great solution to dramatically reduce your acne symptoms and achieve clearer healthier-looking skin. After a Forever Clear BBL treatment regimen at Concordia Star Medical Aesthetics, many of our Puyallup, WA patients see immense improvements in their acne and are ecstatic with the results.

Dr. Ladie C. Araña-Domondon and her team invite you to contact them to learn more about Forever Clear BBL laser acne treatments and schedule an appointment. Let us help reduce your acne to increase your confidence and sense of well-being.

How Does A Laser Acne Treatment Work?

The Forever Clear BBL laser platform is a next-generation acne treatment that uses light energy instead of creams and medications to treat your acne. With a multi-step process, first, it delivers focused blue light energy deep into the skin to target and kill acne-causing bacteria. Then it stimulates skin regeneration to reduce inflammation and redness with yellow light to help you achieve a clearer, healthier-looking complexion. Forever Clear BBL can treat acne on the face, neck, back, arms, legs, buttocks, abdomen, chest, and bikini area.

We'll start by cleansing the treatment area. If needed, patients will receive protective goggles to guard their eyes. In a procedure that can take as little as 15 minutes (depending on the size of the treatment area), we will carefully move the laser handpiece over the skin to destroy acne-causing bacteria and stimulate new skin cell growth. A Forever Clear BBL treatment is noninvasive, gentle, and comfortable, with most patients not even needing any type of anesthetic cream. The procedure helps reduce your active acne and restore your skin, enabling you to accomplish glowing, radiant skin. There is no downtime, so you'll be able to get right back to your normal routine; however, it is recommended to wear sunscreen and avoid sun exposure after a treatment session. Many patients can expect to see results after only one session, but most will see the best results with a treatment regimen created for their specific needs.

Laser Acne Treatment FAQ

What causes acne?
The chief cause of acne is hormonal changes, which can incite the sebaceous glands within the skin to overproduce sebum (skin oil), which can block pores, creating acne outbreaks. At Concordia Star Medical Aesthetics, Dr. Araña-Domondon adopts a custom-tailored approach to minimizing acne that looks at a variety of issues to determine that your acne plan relieves the underlying source of your acne instead of just the symptoms.

Do laser acne treatments hurt?
No, the majority of individuals just report minor discomfort during the treatment. A lot say it feels like a "snapping" feeling at first but then fades as the skin acclimates to the procedure. Dr. Araña-Domondon may use a local anesthetic to help make your procedure as comfortable and calm as possible.

Can acne be permanently cured?
At present, though acne can be treated and temporarily relieved, there is no "permanent" cure for acne. Virtually every person will experience some degree of acne at various points in their life. For many people, acne can be severe, while for others, acne is rarely if ever a problem. This is why Dr. Araña-Domondon offers a multi-spectrum approach to addressing acne that can be tailored to your distinct requirements.

Do particular foods trigger acne or make it worse?
For the most part, eating particular foods does not cause acne. Substantial research has been done into the connection between certain food products and acne. However, the leading cause of acne is hormonal fluctuations that can prompt the sebaceous glands within the skin to produce too much sebum, which can block pores, resulting in acne outbreaks. While unverified, there are some foods believed to make acne worse, including heavily fried foods, dairy foods, food that contains saturated fats, foods made using a lot of processed sugar, and milk chocolate. The triggering element between acne and these items is that they might influence hormone amounts, which might result in acne.

How many sessions are needed?
The number of sessions required varies depending on the severity of the acne and the type of laser used. Most people need between 3 – 6 sessions, spaced about 2 – 4 weeks apart, to see significant improvement.

How long do the results last?
Results can last for several months to years, but maintenance treatments may be necessary to sustain clear skin. The longevity of results depends on individual skin types and adherence to a skin care regimen
