Getting laser acne treatment is usually reserved for patients who have really hard to treat acne, which has previously been treated with oral and topical medications with no relief. These patients may exhibit skin damage from their acne blemishes with scars (pitting) and discoloration. Severe acne will change the texture and tone of the skin, which may modify it to feel rough and look uneven. Patients with chronic acne may have unbalanced hormones or had really bad outbreaks during pregnancy when hormones levels varied.
On the day of your treatment, we will welcome you to our office and escort you to one of our private laser treatment rooms. Your skin will be prepped for the laser treatment, which may last about 20 minutes. With our handheld laser device, we have the ability to cover a greater surface area and treat multiple issues in the same session. You will be given protective goggles to wear over your eyes prior to the start of your treatment. The innovative Laser Genesis technology by Cutera will then be used along the target area. This advanced system will deliver heat or light energy to the skin’s surface to promote rejuvenation. In addition, it will boost the body’s natural collagen production for fresh, glowing skin.
What to Expect
This technique has very little downtime. For best results, it is recommended that you not wear cosmetics on your skin for at least 24 hours. However, laser acne treatment will not keep you away from any of your daily activities. You may see some post-treatment redness and minor irritation to your skin, but these symptoms will fade away in a few days. On average, most patients receive 4 – 6 treatments spaced one month apart.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
The cost of your laser acne treatment will depend on the number of sessions needed to obtain your desired results. Dr. Zainab or a member of our team can discuss costs in detail during your initial consultation.
Cutera is an effective, long-term solution to treating overactive sebaceous glands to prevent oil buildup and clogged pores. This means less downtime and treatments compared to other lasers. Cutera is also great for those with mild to severe acne, large pores, rosacea, and mild acne scarring.
Why multiple sessions?
Dr. Zainab understands that every case is different, which is why she creates a customized treatment plan for every patient. The number of treatments performed will depend on your condition and cosmetic goals. Some patients may only require one treatment to obtain the outcome they want, while others may need more.
Does it hurt?
A numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area prior to your session and after each pass, your skin will be cleaned with a water or saltwater solution to cool the skin, which will allow for even greater comfort during your procedure. Most patients report that the minor discomfort felt during treatment is worth the results.
Our office will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions for you to follow to enable optimal healing.
