Treatment For Acne & Acne Scars

What is acne?

Acne is a common skin condition that affects many people at some point during their lives. It is a complex and continuous cycle that can be caused by many factors, resulting in a hormonal fluctuation that stimulates oil production. It is most common in adolescents but can be experienced at any age and range from mild to severe. Too often, people squeeze spots and blemishes because of their unpleasant appearance. Unfortunately, the habit can increase inflammation and, in extreme cases, lead to permanent scars.

What can laser treatment do to help my acne?

Captivating Aesthetics laser treatment reduces acne inflammation through photoselective absorption and controlled heating. The laser safely penetrates the skin to an optimal treatment depth to thermally and selectively destroy overactive sebaceous glands. In addition, the treatment accelerates the healing process and stimulates collagen remodeling, an important step in the long-term treatment of acne.

What if I have acne scars?

Captivating Aesthetics laser is ideal for mild scar revision. It safely and effectively penetrates the skin for gentle resurfacing of acne-scarred skin, helping to improve your skins texture and tone. Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing allows the penetration depth to be precisely controlled by the practitioner. The laser gently vaporizes micron-thin layers of the acne-scarred surface to reveal healthy, undamaged skin below.

What can I expect from the treatment?

Each person is different but during the treatment, you can expect minimal to mild discomfort.

Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness or swelling that will diminish after a few hours. Most patients can resume their daily activities immediately following the treatment. It is best to avoid direct sun for a few days following treatment and to apply sun screen.

Treatment For Sun Damage, Fine Lines & Wrinkles

What are peels?

As we age, our skin cells begin to loose moisture and collagen production is reduced.

Peels are treatments used to improve and smooth the texture of the skin, removing wrinkles, enlarged pores and spots. During a laser peel, the superficial layers of the skin are gently removed to promote regeneration of the skin, resulting in a smoother more youthful look.

What are laser peels?

Laser peels can remove nearly all fine wrinkles, while significantly improving deeper, more dynamic wrinkles. The laser beam gently vaporizes micron-thin layers of the epidermis while thermally affecting deeper skin layers to stimulate the production of new collagen in the dermis.

Why choose a laser peel?

With laser peels the operator has the ability to completely customize the treatment, by controlling the depth and region of your treatments. This results in a treatment catered specifically for your needs.

What can I expect from the treatment?

Each person is different, but during the treatment you can expect minimal to mild discomfort. Immediately following the treatment, you may experience some redness and a sun burn like sensation, depending on your customized treatment settings. Most patients can resume their daily activities immediately as the mild redness and sunburn like sensation will only last for a few hours. Some more aggressive treatments may have redness and mild swelling for 2-3 days.
