What is Laser Acne Treatment?
Men and women often grow up learning that appearances aren't everything. Still, as we age, we realize that our skin's health has a huge effect on our lives. Acne is one of the multiple challenges that influence your ability to be sure of yourself. People with acne typically have severe blemishes or inflamed cysts on their face, collarbone, upper back, shoulder blades, chest, upper arms, and thighs. It may drastically affect your life, not only from an aesthetic perspective but from a psychological one, too. If you have used multiple medications, gels, or face cleansers but nothing seems to provide relief, acne laser therapy with the AviClear® laser system may be a good choice for your skin. After completing their appointments, many of our Wailea, HI area patients notice huge improvements in their skin and are overjoyed with the results.
Wahine Health proudly offers nonsurgical laser treatments that help reduce active acne. We encourage you to reach out and ask for additional information about our laser acne procedures and schedule a session.
What Happens During Laser Acne Treatment?
We will begin by cleaning your skin. If necessary, individuals will be given protective goggles to shield their eyes. Throughout the short session, Dr. Carrie Giordano or a team member will lightly move the AviClear laser across the skin to withdraw blackheads and destroy acne-causing bacteria. You could feel slightly irritated during the procedure, but most people depict it as a mild snapping sensation. The procedure helps renew your skin, allowing you to accomplish a lovely complexion. Dr. Giordano can determine the number of appointments you need according to the severity of your acne. Usually, patients require three fast 30-minute sessions scheduled 4 - 6 weeks apart.

Laser Acne Treatment FAQs
Do laser acne treatments hurt?
No, many individuals only feel minor discomfort from this laser treatment. A number say it is like a "snapping" feeling at first that quickly goes away once the skin acclimates to the feeling. Our team might administer a local anesthetic to help make your procedure as painless and calm as we can.
Can acne be permanently cured?
At present, while acne may be diminished and managed, there is not a "permanent" treatment for acne. Nearly everyone will live with some degree of acne at some point their life. For some people, acne can be extreme, while for others, acne is occasionally if ever a concern. Dr. Giordano takes a multi-pronged approach to addressing acne that can be tailored to your own concerns.
Do certain foods make acne worse?
By and large, no, eating certain foods does not cause acne. A lot of research has gone into the relationship between certain food products and acne. However, the leading cause of acne is hormonal fluctuations that can induce the oil glands in the skin to produce too much sebum, which can block pores, causing acne outbreaks. Though studies are still being conducted, there are some foods believed to worsen acne symptoms, such as heavily fried foods, dairy foods, food high in saturated fats, foods containing a lot of processed sugar, and milk chocolate. The triggering object between acne and these items is that they have the ability to alter hormone numbers, which might lead to acne.
