Can Laser Treatments Get Rid of My Cystic Acne?

Aug 26, 2020 | Skin Care


If you suffer from cystic acne, you are probably all too familiar with the large, red, and painful breakouts it causes and the harm it causes to your self-esteem. Antibiotics and prescription medications are commonly used to treat this type of acne, but did you know there is something more you can do to control your cystic acne and help reduce its damage to your skin? An Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) FotoFacial could be the answer to treating your acne, and this is how:

What is an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) FotoFacial?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) FotoFacials are highly effective acne treatments. High-intensity pulses of light go deep into the skin to treat lesions without damaging the surface of your skin.

North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic’s non-invasive FotoFacial treatment attacks acne by:

  • Destroying the bacteria trapped below the skin in acne cysts
  • Shrinking sebaceous glands to prevent them from overproducing oils that lead to acne
  • Targeting melanin and hemoglobin cells that cause pigmentation and redness after acne lesions

Benefits You Can Expect from a FotoFacial Treatment

After having a FotoFacial, your skin will feel smoother and have a more even tone. The heat from the IPL will damage the lesion below the surface, and your body will simply absorb it. For the best results, you may need three to four treatments that are spaced three to five weeks apart.
