Acne Laser Treatment

What is acne laser treatment?

If you get ugly, relentless flare-ups of acne that don’t respond to washes, creams, or medications, acne laser treatment may be a viable next step for you to finally eliminate your pimples and blemishes.

The treatment involves several sessions of a three-step process using different colors and types of intense pulsed light (IPL) to target different factors contributing to the severity of your acne.

Once you complete your acne laser treatment plan at Rainier Laser & Aesthetics Center, you enjoy clearer and more radiant skin. The treatment may also reduce your skin’s oil production to prevent future clogged pores and blackheads.

How does acne laser treatment work?

The acne laser treatment process can be summed up in three simple steps involving different types of light. Following these three steps, your provider may give you an aftercare routine complete with SkinMedica® skin care products to help you prevent new or worsening acne.

The three steps of acne laser treatment are:

Step one

First, your provider uses a blue light that kills bacteria. The light reaches deep into your skin’s pores to kill acne-causing bacteria at its source.

Step two

The next step involves a yellow light. This light counteracts inflammation and redness associated with acne to calm your flare-up and even the tone of your skin.

Step three

Finally, your provider uses a pulsing infrared light to firm your skin and initiate the healing process. This helps to minimize acne scars and other lasting damage after a break-out.

What are the side effects of acne laser treatment?

Acne laser treatment is quite effective in reducing or eliminating pimples and inflammation, but you might experience a few mild side effects along the way.

Many patients agree that the side effects are more tolerable than living with uncomfortable or downright embarrassing acne, but you should be aware of them before you commit to the procedure.

Side effects don’t always occur, but you might experience:

  • Redness
  • Crusting or scabbing
  • Peeling
  • Itching
  • Hyperpigmentation

If you get side effects and they don’t go away within 24-48 hours, you should call Rainier Laser & Aesthetics Center for additional treatment or tips to help them go away.

To minimize your chances of getting side effects in the first place, your provider may recommend certain products or routines to care for your skin.

If your acne flare-ups keep reappearing or seem to last for ages, don’t hesitate to call Rainier Laser & Aesthetics Center to book a consultation for acne laser treatment today.

This place is wonderful! I have been to a couple other esthetic places but never was too happy with the service or outcome. The gals who work at the front desk are super friendly, Debbie is so great about giving you all the info you need to make your choice and she made me feel comfortable. I paid with cash and accidentally over payed because 2 bills we’re stuck together and they called me to let me know. I have found a place I will definitely return to. I highly recommend Rainier Esthetics 👍
