LightPod Neo Acne Treatment Procedure

Laser acne treatment

Step 1

When you first come to the office, we will sit you down and prep you for the procedure. The area of treatment will be treated with laser light to rid the skin of P. acnes bacteria. By doing so initially, this helps control possible future breakouts.

Step 2

Any current breakouts on the skin will be treated by applying laser energy to the direct area. The laser energy will fall on each visible acne lesion, reducing inflammation which promotes quicker clearance.

Laser Acne Treatment Recovery

Dr. Callender will share with you a home skin care regimen following the treatment. It is important to remain on the regimen to insure long last results following the treatment. Once your acne is cleared and controlled you may need to follow-up with treatments if the condition returns. This will vary from person to person and certain patients will have longer periods of clearance than others.

How Many LightPod Neo Treatments Will I Need?

The number of treatments varies from person to person depending on many different variables. Some factors include:

  • The severity of their current treatment condition
  • Lifestyle of the patient

To help control any current breakouts, we recommend undergoing a treatment course of 4-6 sessions. Once the active acne is controlled, some touch-up sessions could be needed to help clear subsequent breakouts. Fortunately, this treatment has been designed with the ability to be performed whenever a breakout occurs.
