According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne is the most common skin condition in the United States. Unfortunately, the sensitive condition can be difficult to treat with over the counter creams and can cause self-consciousness.
At ROXY Plastic Surgery, we are proud to serve patients with our revolutionary laser acne scar treatment in Columbus, Ohio. Let’s take a look at how laser treatments work to fight stubborn acne so you can get the bright and glowing skin you’ve always dreamed of.
At ROXY Plastic Surgery, we use our state-of-the-art equipment to help our patients fight acne. Acne laser treatments use wavelengths that target the acne causing bacteria, hindering the ability of the bacteria to multiply. These treatments will slow down the overactive glands to bring oil production to a more normal level.
Over time, the number of lesions and severity of your breakouts will reduce, giving you the healthy, glowing skin you desire.
Not only will these treatments help fight acne, but they improve the appearance of any dark spots or scars you may have from preexisting acne. Since there are different types of acne scars, we offer different types of laser treatments with varying strengths and weaknesses that can improve acne scars. The type of laser treatment you receive will depend on the severity of your scars and dark spots and the results you desire.
The great thing about laser acne scar treatment is the procedure is minimally invasive and does not include any surgery or downtime. Results are very effective, too. The laser acne scar treatment works to break down scar tissue and stimulate healthy growth of new tissues in its place.
Laser acne treatments and laser acne scar treatments usually involve at least 7 treatment spaced out about every one to two weeks. Treatments do not last long, usually 30 minutes, and can fit seamlessly into your schedule.
Once you arrive at ROXY Plastic Surgery, we’ll apply a topical numbing medicine which will keep you comfortable during the treatment. With no downtime, so you can drive yourself home or even go to work following your appointment.
Most individuals do not need to maintain their laser treatment, however, you may wish to have one treatment at 6 months and then every 1-2 years after that if you desire. Ongoing treatment may be best for teens or young adults that also suffer from regular breakouts.
If you are looking for brighter and clearer skin, laser acne scar treatments may be right for you. When you schedule a consultation at ROXY Plastic Surgery, Dr. Grawe will meet with you to determine if you are a candidate for treatment. Once you complete your series of acne laser treatments, you’ll finally be able to enjoy clear skin!
