Acne treatment with the Aerolase laser destroys acne bacteria, reduces inflammation, and suppresses excess sebum production, all of which contribute to acne breakouts. This gentle, non-invasive technology addresses causative factors and controls acne in a single treatment without prescription medications.

Who is a candidate for acne treatment?

If you have acne that has not responded to traditional therapies, or if you want to avoid taking oral medications, you may be a candidate for Aerolase laser acne treatment. This therapy has been proven effective for all ages and skin types. It can also treat acne scars effectively, smoothing the skin as more collagen is produced.

What can I expect with acne treatment in Centralia, IL?

Acne treatment with the Aerolase laser is a quick and painless procedure.

  • First, we prep you for treatment and cover your eyes with protective shields.
  • You lie comfortably on a treatment table while the laser applicator is passed over your skin.
  • The area is treated to destroy acne-causing bacteria, which helps control future breakouts. 
  • Laser energy is then directly applied to treat current breakouts, reducing inflammation, and promoting healing.

Is there any recovery after acne treatment?

There is no recovery time with an Aerolase laser acne treatment. You can return to work or other activities right away. You may experience some skin redness after treatment, which fades away within a few hours. It is essential to follow a home skincare regimen to maintain your results.

How many acne treatments will I need?

The number of treatments you need will depend on several factors, including your lifestyle and the severity of your condition. You may need a series of four to six treatment sessions to achieve optimal results. After the acne is controlled, touch-up treatments may be needed to clear up future breakouts. This treatment can be performed whenever acne breakouts occur.

Are anesthesia or cooling gels needed for Aerolase laser acne treatment?

This procedure is not performed with topical anesthetics or cooling gels, as it is uniquely pain-free. Patients experience a mild sensation of heat during treatment.

How does the treatment work for acne scars?

Aerolase laser light heats water within the skin’s deeper layer (dermis), stimulating the regrowth of collagen and elastin. This gradually helps fill in and smooth out cratering and pockmarks caused by acne.

Can I apply makeup after acne treatment?

You can safely apply makeup immediately after Aerolase laser acne treatment. Acne medication and skincare products can also be used right away.

How soon will I see results with Aerolase laser acne treatment?

Although the laser kills acne-causing bacteria right away, it can take several weeks to see a noticeable improvement in the skin. You may need a series of four to six treatment sessions, plus touch up treatments for any future breakouts. We can help you establish a home skincare regime to help prevent breakouts and enhance and maintain your results.
