Acne Laser Treatment at Prestige Laser Studio

Acne is a skin condition that can be emotionally distressing and leave behind visible

reminders in the form of scars, enlarged pores, and uneven skin texture. While the

immediate goal of acne treatments is to clear existing breakouts, many individuals are

discovering that acne laser treatment offers long-term benefits that extend beyond acne


In this blog, we'll explore the enduring advantages of acne laser treatment,

which include improved skin texture, reduced pore size, and a more youthful


The Laser Difference:

Acne laser treatments have gained popularity for their ability to target not only active acne but also the lasting effects acne can have on the skin. These treatments use precise wavelengths of light to penetrate the skins surface, inhibiting the over production of sebum, stimulating collagen and reducing inflammation.

Heres how Prestige's acne laser treatment delivers long-term benefits:

1. Improved Skin Texture:

One of the most noticeable long-term benefits of acne laser treatment is the significant

improvement in skin texture. Acne breakouts can leave behind uneven skin,

characterized by rough patches, depressions, and bumps. Laser therapy encourages

the formation of new, healthy skin cells, helping to smooth out these imperfections over


2. Reduced Pore Size:

Enlarged pores are a common concern for individuals who have battled acne. Laser

treatments can help with skin tightening and reducing the size of enlarged pores. This not

only enhances the skins overall appearance but also reduces the likelihood of dirt and

debris becoming trapped, potentially leading to future breakouts.

3. A More Youthful Appearance:

Collagen, a key protein responsible for skins firmness and elasticity, tends to diminish with age. Acne laser treatments stimulate collagen production, resulting in firmer and

more youthful-looking skin. This can help lower the appearance of fine lines and

wrinkles, providing an added bonus for those seeking an anti-aging solution.

The Importance of Collagen:

Collagen is a fundamental component of healthy skin. It provides structural support and

elasticity, helping to maintain skins youthful appearance. Unfortunately, acne breakouts

can disrupt collagen production, leading to a loss of skin tone and increased sagging. Acne laser treatments encourage the body to produce new collagen, which effectively

counteracts the aging effects of acne on the skin.

The Long-Term Commitment:

While the results of acne laser treatments can be seen relatively quickly in terms of

acne clearance, the long-term benefits require a bit more time and patience. Collagen

production is a gradual process, and individuals may continue to experience

improvements in skin texture, pore size, and overall appearance for several months

after their treatment sessions.

Maintaining the Benefits:

To ensure the lasting benefits of acne laser treatment, its essential to maintain a

consistent skincare routine and protect the skin from UV damage. Maintenance treatments are also recommended to keep your acne at bay. Here are some tips to

help you make the most of your acne laser treatment:

Sun Protection: UV radiation can harm the skin and negate the positive effects

of laser treatment. Applying broad-spectrum sunscreen daily is crucial to

maintain the skins newfound clarity and youthful appearance. ZO Skin Health offers a variety of sun protection for all skin types.

Medical Grade Skincare: ZO Skin Health offers high active products to reduce inflammation, acne breakouts and premature signs of aging. A proper at-home protocol is just if not more important than the acne treatment itself. At Prestige one of our skin specialists develop a customized prescription based on your skin concerns and goals. A great starting program is the ZO Complexion Clearing Program.

Follow Post-Treatment Instructions: Aftercare instructions provided by your skincare professional should be followed diligently to maximize the long-term benefits of acne laser treatment.

Acne laser treatment offers more than just a solution for active breakouts;

it provides long-term benefits that can result in improved skin texture, reduced pore size, and a more youthful appearance. By stimulating collagen production and encouraging skin

healing, these treatments create lasting improvements that extend well beyond acne

clearance. With patience, a consistent skincare routine, and proper sun protection,

individuals can enjoy the enduring advantages of smoother, more radiant skin.
