What is acne laser treatment?
Our skin care specialists at LA Laser and Skin Center perform a variety of acne laser treatments. Each type of laser treatment works in a unique way to reduce and even eliminate acne and acne scars.
Photofacial– Photofacial therapy uses an intense pulsed light laser to efficiently target acne scars with minimal healing time and maximum results.
VBeam Perfecta– The VBeam Perfecta pulse dye laser breaks apart damaged skin cells within acne and acne scars. These cells are absorbed by the body leaving behind fresh, unblemished skin.
Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment– The fractional CO2 laser treats both superficial and deep skin layers simultaneously with precision control. It targets layers of damaged skin cells in columns, leaving the surrounding cells intact for quick healing.
Photodynamic Acne Treatment– Photodynamic acne treatment combines light energy with medication that activates when light is applied directly to the target area. This skin therapy covers a large surface area quickly and efficiently.
