Laser Acne Treatment
Acne Treatment Technique
Numbing medication is usually not needed for this treatment. A thin film of ultrasound gel is first applied to your skin. Then, Dr. Sieber passes the BBL handheld device over the area to be treated. The device emits small pulses of light that heat the upper layers of the skin. Most patients have little to no discomfort. Each treatment session lasts about 20-30 minutes and can be easily scheduled during your lunch hour.

Preparing for Acne Treatment
Recovery from Acne Treatment
You may experience some redness and swelling for the first 24 hours after your BBL photo facial treatment for acne, but makeup can be applied immediately after treatment. You may also experience some slight discomfort, similar to that from a mild to moderate sunburn, for the first 12-24 hours following treatment, but most clients are able to return to their regular activities immediately.
Laser Acne Treatment Frequently Asked Questions
Will I notice an improvement in my acne right away?
It may take anywhere from a few days to a week before you’ll see an improvement in your acne. All of your acne won’t disappear after a single session. Most patients will require 4-6 treatments before seeing a dramatic improvement in their acne.*
How long will my results last?
Your results are dependent in part on your body. Some patients will get complete eradication of their acne after a series of treatments while others will need a “booster” treatment every 3-4 months to maintain their results.*
How long will my results last?Will this treatment help with my acne scarring?
Although BBL photo facial can treat active acne, it may only make a marginal improvement in your acne scars. Dr. Sieber typically recommends the Halo laser treatment to deliver the most improvement in acne scars.*
