At Key West Med Spa, we have excellent, fda approved laser acne treatment fl for active acne and acne scars. These procedures are performed at our lovely new clinic by a board certified physician.
Acne Scar Improving
If you have had blackheads, whiteheads, and other blemishes in the past, you might have noticeable acne scars on your face. We can use a laser treatment to reduce these acne scars and improve your skin. During your scar reduction treatment, we will use laser energy to gently resurface your skin. This energy will improve your skin’s tone and texture.
Some scar reduction treatments may cause you to experience uncomfortable burning sensations. Since this technique uses very precise amounts of energy, you won’t have to deal with burning, excessive peeling, and other unpleasant feelings once your laser treatment is complete.
Active Acne Laser Treatments
If you have active acne, we have multiple ways to treat you using laser and medication. Almost all of our patients with active acne have difficult to control acne. We also have patients that are tired of using creams and antibiotics and would like a medication free treatment regimen which we can accommodate using just laser. We can only treat acne patients who have not used Accutane in the last 6 months.
How Does These Treatments Work?
This is a non-invasive laser treatment, which means that it will not breach the surface of the skin to produce results. The dynamic settings of the laser allow for each of your treatments to be customized to your specific needs.
The treatment itself is performed using the patented Fotona device. Your treatment appointments will take anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes to complete.
What Will My Laser Treatment Be Like?
We will perform your laser treatment at our office in Key West, Florida. You should wear comfortable clothing for your laser appointment. In addition, you should not apply makeup or other products to your treatment area. After we have finished sending laser energy into your skin, you will be able to leave our office and continue with the rest of your daily activities in Acne Treatment Key West FL.
When Will I See the Full Benefits of My Laser Treatment?
You are likely to see some positive changes in the skin in your target area right away. For example, if you use our laser to renew the skin on your face, your skin will look fresher and tighter after you leave our office. That said, many of these treatments enhance your skin by increasing your collagen production. Since this process takes time, you might see the full effect of your treatment within six months.
Do These Treatments Hurt?
Fotona Laser combines several different wavelength depths to achieve optimal penetration of the skin surface and dermal skin layers, as well as combining multiple laser types that alternate between cold and thermal energy. As it is, Fotona treatment is not painful, although it will involve a moderate amount of sensation on the skin for the duration of the treatment.
If you have particularly sensitive skin, we can discuss the use of topical numbing cream or mild sedative options to ensure your comfort during your treatment appointments. Many patients simply opt to take over-the-counter pain relievers about one to two hours before a treatment appointment. The treatments are usually only slightly uncomfortable as we use numbing cream. The pain is resolved immediately after the treatments, and regular activities can resume immediately after with some sun avoidance.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
The number of treatments you will need depends directly on the areas you want to treat and the severity of each of your appearance-related concerns.
How Often Will You Need Treatment to Maintain Results?
Although you can expect long-lasting results from this treatment, you should know that you will need to have maintenance appointments for some appearance-related concerns. For example, the treatment of acne, skin tightening and resurfacing, hair removal, and rosacea all require occasional top-up treatments to maintain results, usually once every four to six months, depending on the area you are treating.
Most with active acne can see immediate results after 1-2 treatments and gradual improvement that will continue with regular treatments. Most people with active acne will need 4 weekly treatments followed by 1 treatment every month or 2.
For acne treatment fl, the number of treatments you will need will depend on the skin type, the type of acne scarring, the depth of the scars, and your desired results. Please come in for a consultation to have your questions answered.
For people with both active acne and acne scarring, we treat the active acne first and then the acne scarring. The type of laser treatment is different for each of these problems.
We may also use Obagi skin care products to help with the acne treatment fl.
