ACNE LASER TREATMENT NYC

ACNE SCAR TREATMENT

Acne laser treatment in NYC can help diminish the appearance of pimples, blackheads, acne scarring, and whiteheads for a clearer complexion. At Dermatology, Laser & Surgery of Carnegie Hill, we offer acne treatments and laser acne scar treatments to give your skin a healthy and beautiful appearance. Many patients have tried over-the-counter acne medicines with limited success and wish to improve their appearance with more advanced treatments. Laser acne treatments can improve your complexion with little-to-no-downtime. Whether you suffer from acne breakouts, acne scarring, or both, our NYC dermatologists can help you find the proper treatment to achieve beautiful skin.

WHAT IS ACNE AND ACNE SCARRING?

Acne is caused when your pores are clogged by oil and dead skin cells. Growing bacteria can also contribute to acne breakouts. When the pores are unable to unclog oils and dead skin cells, pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, and other blemishes begin to form. Acne often begins in adolescence, but it can be a lifelong skin condition that takes proper treatment to improve. Acne is most commonly found on the face, forehead, chest, upper back, and shoulders. These areas of the body have the most oil glands, which leads to a higher chance of acne occurring. If left untreated, acne can lead to acne scarring, which appears as divots and bumps on the skin. Acne scarring can occur as a result of inflammation from acne, picking at pimples, and improper treatment or care. Acne scarring has an uneven texture that can worsen skin tone and appearance.

WHAT KINDS OF TREATMENTS ARE AVAILABLE FOR ACNE AND ACNE SCARRING?

Acne treatments have come a long way. From acne laser treatments to chemical peels, treating acne and acne scarring is much more versatile, offering patients a much more individualized treatment plan based on skin type. Many patients opt for one treatment, but it is not uncommon for patients to use a combination of treatments for the best improvements. Treatment selection is based on many factors, including whether the patient has acne scarring, how long the patient wishes to undergo treatment, and what application the patient is most comfortable with. Our dermatologists in NYC can help you select the treatment(s) suitable for your specific skincare goals.

HOW MANY LASER ACNE TREATMENTS ARE RECOMMENDED?

The number of sessions recommended for laser acne treatments depends on the severity of the acne, if there is acne scarring, how long the patient wishes to undergo acne treatment, and more. Our New York City dermatologists can help create an acne laser treatment plan for you.

AM I AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR LASER ACNE TREATMENT?

Laser acne treatment is suitable for both teenagers and adults who are affected by acne or acne scarring and wish to improve their complexion. Many patients opt for laser treatment after having little success with medical treatment or topical ointments. Laser acne treatment is also a solution for those that have divots, bumps, or other blemishes associated with acne scarring.

WILL ANESTHESIA BE USED FOR LASER ACNE TREATMENT?

Laser acne treatment does not typically require general or local anesthesia. Patients are usually given a numbing cream to make sure they are comfortable during the procedure.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER LASER ACNE TREATMENT?

Patients can resume their daily activities after receiving laser acne treatment. There may be a red or flushed appearance after the procedure, but this usually subsides within a few days. It is recommended that patients avoid overexposure to the sun, apply sunscreen, and moisturize the treatment area to quicken the healing process.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM NYC LASER ACNE TREATMENT?

Patients can expect to have a smoother, clearer complexion after laser acne treatment. Dermatology, Laser & Surgery of Carnegie Hill uses the latest technology to help patients receive a glowing complexion that gives them a renewed sense of confidence. By shrinking overactive oil glands, laser acne treatment provides long-lasting results.
