Acne Treatment

The acne light treatment concentrates the light into individual pulses, which target the acne-causing bacteria. The light penetrates into the hyperactive sebaceous glands to slow down the production of sebum, which can clog pores and cause future acne outbreaks. A mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling, may follow the treatment. This usually lasts 2 to 24 hours, and can be soothed with aloe gel or ice packs. There may be an initial flare-up of acne, similar to the kind seen after a peel procedure or the beginning of a new topical or oral acne medication. Some of the blemishes may appear redder. They will then fade after 2 to 3 weeks. A reduction in the number of lesions and the prevention of new lesion formation can be expected following your treatment course.
