FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS -  ACne Laser Heat therapy

 Acne Laser Heat Therapy - This is meant to help with acne problems on the face, shoulders, back, chest, or anywhere else acne is a problem. Whether you are a teenager or an adult acne can be embarrassing, and we are here to help!

This treatment can be used on male and female clients. 


What is Acne Laser Heat Therapy?
Acne Laser Heat Therapy utilizes our Nd:Yag laser to produce bulk heating, and through a photochemical response, creates an environment where bacteria can no longer thrive. 


How does this work?
The heat created by the laser produces an oxygen-rich environment that is toxic for the bacteria that thrive under the skin and ultimately destroys it.​


How often will I need to have a treatment for my acne?
Six to eight weekly treatments along with suggested skincare will calm your angry skin! Hormone fueled acne can require follow-up treatments.


Will I break out after the laser heat therapy?
The skin will often push out the impurities lying beneath the skin a day or two after a treatment. This can cause the skin to break out a bit, becoming temporarily inflamed with whiteheads or pimples. The skin can look a bit worse before it gets better.​


Is the process invasive?
We’re pleased to report that the heat therapy treatment is completely non-invasive and comfortable. As a matter of fact, the majority of clients find the process to be therapeutic and relaxing. A gentle, warming sensation being swept across the area is what customers experience.​


Are there any side effects?

Initially, your skin may be slightly pink, which will subside within the first hour of your Acne Laser Heat Therapy. Again, as the bacteria is being destroyed the clients often experience breakouts after the initial treatments.


Will my Acne be gone forever after I have completed the sessions?
As with anything in life, maintenance is usually required.  Clients often need follow-up treatments in order to maintain a healthy complexion once the initial acne problem is treated. 


Will I need to use products on my face, so I don't break out?

It is wise to use the proper cleansing and treatment products to maintain the health of the skin. We can help you decide what would be best for your skin.
