About Laser Acne Treatment at CNY Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery
Acne can be a difficult skin condition to treat because of its resistance to many popular over-the-counter skin care products. Many of our patients turn to laser acne treatments in Syracuse to help them achieve smooth, clear, healthy skin and the confidence that goes with it. Our board-certified plastic surgeons can assist you in designing a program that combines laser treatments and products to help you win your battle with acne.
Benefits of Laser Acne Treatments
Women and men choose laser acne treatments to correct both active acne and acne scarring. Our patients often enjoy the following benefits:
- Little to no downtime
- Smoother skin texture for a refreshed and healthy-looking complexion
- Reduced recurrence of acne breakouts
For a more extensive treatment, our board-certified surgeons recommend laser skin resurfacing for acne scar removal in Syracuse, NY. This and other treatments can help you to address the discoloration and indentations that acne can leave behind.
How it Works
Improvements in laser technology have paved the way for varied applications in the treatment of acne and in improving skin texture. Lasers work by targeting the causes of acne, leaving your complexion clear and refreshed looking. We use lasers to kill the bacteria believed to cause acne inflammation and breakouts. During this process, new collagen growth is stimulated to improve the appearance of your skin. Additionally, lasers are extremely effective in shrinking oil (sebaceous) glands. This is ideal for people who need help decreasing the skin’s oil production.
More intense lasers are effective in the treatment of a wide range of acne scar types. Depending on the size and depth of a scar, different lasers can be used to improve the appearance and texture of the skin. Laser resurfacing involves peeling away damaged layers of skin to create a smoother appearance. This method is effective for diminishing or completely removing any sign of scarring.
One of the many benefits of our Medical Spa treatments is the relative ease that our patients experience when it comes to downtime. Depending on the extent of the procedure, most patients are able to return to work or other daily activities immediately after treatment. Often, patients return to the practice for multiple treatments every 2 weeks for enhanced results. One of our surgeons will be able to discuss this and other components of your treatment during your consultation.

You should see a visible improvement in the texture and color of your skin within the weeks following treatment. Our surgeons will recommend any topical products that may help you protect and enhance your results.
