Laser Acne Treatment
Dr. John Guagenti uses Smoothbeam acne laser therapy to effectively treat acne. This gentle, safe treatment targets overactive sebaceous glands in your skin—the root cause of acne.
The laser emits a wavelength of light that is absorbed by the water in your skin. As the laser penetrates into the skin, heat is generated in and around the sebaceous glands, creating a mild thermal injury that changes the activity and function of the glands.
Shortly after the first treatment, you will start to see a reduction in the number of acne lesions on your skin. For best results, three to four treatments may be required. A session lasts from five to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treated area.
After a thorough evaluation, Dr. John Guagenti can recommend a combination of laser treatments to help you achieve your desired effect.
