Enough with pharmaceuticals: Stop Acne with Laser Acne Treatments

Laser acne treatments at our Vancouver clinic can do more than just clear your skin. Gain confidence with corrective treatments for acne prevention, reduction and acne scar removal.  Don’t let pimples hold you back. At our clinic we can help you achieve clear smooth skin with the best acne treatment that suits your skin. Does acne blemishes make you shy and self-conscious?

For many years, acne sufferers have been forced to rely on skin creams and pills to treat their acne scars, blemishes, cysts and inflammation. Advances in skincare science have opened a new option that uses pulsed-light instead of pharmaceuticals to stop acne, manage active acne, aid in acne scar removal and it is one of the most popular treatments at our Vancouver Laser Skin Clinic.

What is acne?
The medical term for acne is acne vulgaris, and it is a skin disease that affects oil glands on the face, back and chest. Less frequently, it can also be found on other parts of the body.

Many things can stimulate acne, including diet, hormones, and skin care. It usually affects people between 12 and 35, but it can also affect adults over 35.

Types of Laser Treatments for Acne

There are two different types of medical grade lasers that are used to treat acne pimples:

  1. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)  is an acne treatment that helps to disperse redness , remove acne and decrease scars.
  2. Lux 1540 Fractional is a pimple scar treatment used to improve skin texture and pigmentation with reducing acne scarring.

Before you begin your corrective treatments for acne, we offer a 40-minute consultation with Rita Moldovanos to determine the best laser to treat your specific acne and skin type.

Simply clearing the skin damage from acne may not give you the clear skin you are looking for long term. Our goal to find the source of the issue, and not just mask the acne with superficial improvements.

Acne treatment has come a long way, and most people can achieve clear skin without oral prescription or topical prescription creams. Clear skin is possible, and with over twenty years experience, we are the best choice to guide you.

Get smooth, clear skin without surgery

Sun exposure has long been known to diminish acne scarring, reducing the need for scar revision treatments. Our clinic laser acne treatments work in a similar way. The process uses smooth, gentle pulses of concentrated light to kill the bacteria that cause the acne to aid in scar removal.

This technology also treats unsightly pigmented lesions such as sunspots and age spots, to further aid in the appearance of your skin.

Does getting treatments for acne hurt?

Most patients describe the light pulses as a slight “snapping” sensation, which causes mild discomfort at most. Treatments are quick, painless with fast recovery. There may be some redness, but it will fade within a week and you can quickly enjoy your new, clearer skin.
