Laser Acne Treatment

Knowing that acne is a common condition doesn’t make it any easier to live with. We understand that it can be debilitating because of its impact on your self-confidence and feelings around your appearance, and that you may long for clear, acne-free skin. As acne tends to vary in severity and symptoms from one person to the next, it can be challenging to find the right solution. This is where we can help.

Here at the Carnaby Laser Clinic and Academy, we specifically offer laser treatment for acne using the Xlase Plus laser and its choice of applicators, including Calibrated Pulsed Light (CPL) Acne Therapy. This treatment has been shown to be incredibly effective.

If you have deep acne scars, we can use the derma stamping skin resurfacing applicator to stimulate collagen production and significantly improve or even remove your visible acne scars to leave your skin looking youthful again.

When you come to us, you can expect to receive:

  • Acne treatment that’s right for you
  • Effective, noticeable results
  • A detailed consultation specific to your needs
  • No known side effects & no downtime
  • One of the safest acne treatments now available

Laser skin rejuvenation treatment FAQs

Acne occurs when the sebaceous glands attached to your hair follicles over produce an oily substance called sebum. In normal circumstances, sebum plays an important role in lubricating your hair and moisturising your skin. However, if over production occurs, the excess sebum mixes with dead skin cells and creates a plug in your tiny hair follicles. If the plug is close to the surface of your skin, this results in a whitehead. If the plugged follicle is open to the skin, the result is a blackhead.

To complicate matters, the normally harmless bacteria that live on your skin can contaminate and infect the blocked hair follicles causing more severe symptoms of acne such as papules, pustules, nodules or cysts.

With laser acne treatment, we use a handheld applicator to expose targeted areas of your skin to controlled bursts of light energy, which converts to heat. This heat energy then kills the bacteria responsible for your acne and stimulates the production of fresh collagen, which is one of the essential building blocks of healthy skin.

In the weeks following your treatment, you should begin to notice your acne improving and your skin looking smoother and healthier.

The number of sessions you need will depend on your individual case and the extent of your acne or acne scarring. When you come in for your initial consultation, we’ll be able to give you a much better idea of what to expect.
Acne treatment using CPL Acne Therapy with the Xlase Plus is not associated with any known side effects and is widely viewed to be a safe and effective treatment option, especially when performed by a suitably experienced laser aesthetics practitioner.
There’s no downtime after a laser treatment. We recommend that you wear a high factor sunscreen (SPF 30+) to help protect your skin from unwanted pigment changes.

The key benefits of laser acne treatment

CPL Acne Therapy has been heralded as revolutionising the treatment of acne. With the CPL applicator for the Xlase Plus laser, we can apply Calibrated Pulsed Light to targeted areas of your skin.

The key benefits of laser acne treatments when compared to other treatment options include:

  • Effective on moderate inflammatory acne
  • No need for medication
  • No known side effects
  • Safe, comfortable and fast
  • Long-lasting results
  • No downtime
