Acne Treatment in Wilmington, DE

Don’t cover it up, clear it up! Embarrassed by acne on your face, neck, shoulders, back, chest? Discouraged with ineffective topical solutions that dry out your skin? Tired of covering your spots with makeup and clothes? Frustrated with trying every new product and still no results?

Acne is the number 1 reason people go to a dermatologist. Over 80% of the population suffers from this emotional and frustrating condition. Not just affecting teenagers, adult-onset acne has become much more common, and the sooner the condition is addressed at any age, the better the chance of controlling breakouts and minimizing scarring.

Wish you could find something that would eliminate blemishes quickly and painlessly? Today’s acne laser technology may be your answer!

How Can I Treat My Acne?

With acne laser treatments, you can enjoy clear, healthy-looking skin!

  • Kill acne bacteria
  • Decrease oil production
  • Improve the appearance of pores
  • Diminish scarring
  • Control future breakouts
  • Avoid potential adverse effects of topical and oral medications

How does acne laser treatment work?

Lasers target both the oil and bacteria that cause acne:

  • Lasers shrink the sebaceous (oil) glands to produce less oil. Lasers target the sebaceous glands under the skin without affecting the outer layer of skin.
  • Lasers kill the bacteria that cause inflammation. Naturally occurring bacteria on the skin sometimes get trapped in pores, causing inflammation.

Will it hurt?

Lasers used for acne treatment are noninvasive, so pain is minimal. Some patients experience a mild snapping or stinging sensation during treatment; topical anesthetics can be applied before treatment to reduce discomfort.

Are there any side effects?

Advances in laser technology have improved both their effectiveness and safety. Risks are extremely rare. Some slight reddening or swelling of the skin may occur but typically disappears within a day or two.

Will there be any downtime?

There is no downtime and you may return to school or work immediately after treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

Generally, three to four weeks of treatments are needed for desired results, although some cases may require additional treatments. Treatments can take from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the size and density of the area.

When will I see results?

Many patients begin seeing results after the first treatment, with more dramatic results appearing after several treatments.

How long will it last?

The skin will continue to improve over the months following treatment, and long-term improvements up to one year have been documented. Follow-up visits may be necessary to maintain results.
