The treatment of acne using a laser has become incredibly popular in the past decade, and for good reason: acne laser treatment works extremely well.
We use the SmoothBeam Laser in the treatment of adult, as well as adolescent acne. This state-of-the-art laser acne treatment, is effective in reducing the appearance of acne and future flare-ups. It is a safe and effective treatment that can help reduce outbreaks and make acne much more manageable.
Smoothbeam is a non-invasive laser treatment, that does not burn or cut the skin. Instead, intense but gentle pulses of light are directed at the affected area, heating the oil glands (known as sebaceous glands in the medical community), effectively causing them to function in a new way that doesn’t produce acne flare-ups.
The Smoothbeam laser also stimulates that production of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin, helping to reduce the appearance of acne scarring as well.

Acne and What You Can Do About It
If you suffer from acne, chances are that you’ve tried your fair share of lotions, creams, and “skin care systems.” You may have even tried some prescription acne treatments. However, there is also a pretty good chance that these products, whether prescription or over-the-counter, aren’t totally effective in the treatment of your acne.
These products manage acne on the surface of the skin, and have to ability to penetrate to the root cause of acne, but may not make enough meaningful impact on your struggle with acne for clear skin.

Acne is very prevalent among young females in their late teens, however, many young men are affected by acne as well. Though acne isn’t something that just affects teens. Many adults suffer from the effects of acne as well, well into their 50’s.
Acne is caused by the overproduction of oil by the oil glands of the skin. While oil naturally helps lubricate the skin to retain its elasticity, sometimes this oil gets caught in the oil ducts and pores of the face, resulting in pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, and sometimes cysts.
Mild acne can sometimes be treated with a strong skin care routine at home, but for many sufferers of acne, this alone is not enough to manage the appearance of acne. In these cases, we advise our patients to consider laser acne treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to see results from laser acne treatment?
Is laser acne therapy painful?
Most patients report minimal discomfort during their acne treatment. The Smoothbeam laser systems employs a Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) that sprays short bursts of cryogen before and after each light pulse delivered to the skin to reduce inflammation and discomfort. For those that are particularly sensitive, a topical numbing agent may also be used.
Is laser acne treatment appropriate for darker skin tones?
The areas of the skin treated by the laser may rarely experience temporary hyperpigmentation, resulting in a slight difference in skin color after the procedure has been completed. For those with with darker skin tones, we will perform a preliminary skin test to ensure that Smoothbeam will work properly for your skin type. We have treated hundreds of darker skinned patients with great success.
