What is Laser Acne Treatment?
Laser acne treatment is available at Aesthetic Body Solutions in Beverly Hills, CA for men and women who would like to see more improvement in their skin. Acne treatments today with laser can be a great addition to your skin care routine when battling acne, acne scars, and the discoloration it can do to your skin. No matter what your age, you can develop acne as a teen or as an adult. Hormones influence the way our skin thrives — this includes the development of blemishes.
Acne can form on the face and body. You may have tried the prescription washes, topical gels, or oral medications provided by a doctor to soothe and heal your acne with unsatisfactory results. Our board-certified internist, Dr. Dale Prokupek, invites you to come in for a consultation and skin evaluation to see if you would benefit from laser acne treatments. Aesthetic Body Solutions is happy to provide noninvasive laser treatments with the Lumenis® M22™ laser to treat acne. We invite you to contact us and request additional information about our laser acne technologies and set up a session. We want our patients to feel terrific about their skin again.

"My friend referred me to Dr. Dale for my acne scars and wrinkles. I was greeted by friendly staff and Dr. Dale was such a nice guy! I asked if he recommends a face lift for my wrinkles but he advised against it. He took his time to explain my options and get me the best deal. I also felt comfortable going to a doctor vs a med spa as my safety was his main concern. He recommended the Morpheus8 by INMODE. It helped clear my face and also gave my face a lift! It has no downtime and cost half the price of alternatives with no anesthesia. Overall had a great experience, even my mom has booked an appointment!"- E.M. / Google / Aug 28, 2020

Do I Qualify?
To qualify for laser acne treatments, you will need to have a consultation with our medical team at Aesthetic Body Solutions. If you have an active infection, you may need to have other treatments before laser acne treatments can be beneficial. You do not want to make hot, swollen areas of your facial skin worse with added irritation or the risk of spreading infection. Once it is determined that you would be appropriate for laser acne treatments, we will provide your services with the newest laser technologies on the market today.
Our acne treatment Technique
We will begin by cleansing your skin. If necessary, individuals will receive safety glasses to guard their eyes. During the procedure, Dr. Prokupek will slowly move the laser across your face to eliminate acne-causing microorganisms. You will likely experience some irritation during the treatment; however, it is usually described as a slight stinging sensation. Laser acne treatment helps improve your skin, allowing you to accomplish a cleaner, healthier look. Dr. Prokupek can also make recommendations on how to ease the appearance of acne scars with our laser treatments as well.
What to Expect
After a laser acne treatment, you might observe some reddening, puffiness, and mild skin tenderness. Based on the section treated, we recommend not utilizing beauty care products for a day. In addition, you need to prevent any long-term sun exposure. Individuals can observe a difference after 24 – 48 hours. Dr. Prokupek will identify the number of sessions you need based on the severity of your blemishes. Most patients require 3 – 6 appointments to observe healthier-looking skin.
Laser Acne Treatment FAQs
Why would I have an IPL photofacial and a ResurFX™ treatment?
It is true that both treatments are beneficial to your skin. However, they are two different treatments. When you need laser acne treatment, IPL does wonders for improving discoloration, or hyperpigmentation of your skin, by taking out redness in acne inflamed skin. ResurFX treatments take your skin to a new level in health and appearance by reducing the appearance of acne scars. By going deep down within the layers of your skin, the ResurFX technology renews the texture of the skin and stimulates collagen production. Your skin can be tighter, smoother, and less damaged from acne without harming the surface of the surrounding skin.
Why do I have to avoid the sun before and after a laser acne treatment?
It is best to always protect your skin from the sun. However, we ask that you please avoid direct sun exposure to your facial skin, using a tanning bed, or using a spray tanner for at least two weeks before your treatment for the best results. Once you have had your session, we also recommend staying out of direct sunlight for 48 hours post-treatment. Your skin will be super sensitive to light, and you will not be comfortable with sunburned skin and acne.
Will the Lumenis M22 or ResurFX treatments hurt my skin?
Laser treatments on sensitive skin can cause mild discomfort. However, the pain can be minimized with the application of a topical numbing agent before the session begins. We want you to be comfortable during your session if it is possible.
