Many individuals do not respond adequately to traditional continuous acne treatments, including Accutane, topicals, and antibiotics. We now offer therapy that treats the various causes of acne. Often we will recommend using Smoothbeam laser treatments to achieve the best long term results.
What to Expect
Studies have shown that results can continue for 2 years and more. A dramatic, long lasting improvement can be achieved after 4 to 6 treatments.
Microdermabrasion is often performed prior to treatment to enhance the effectiveness of the laser. As with all laser treatments, you will want to avoid sun exposure for a specified time after each treatment.
