At Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists, one of our most sought-after procedures is acne treatment in NYC. In the fight against acne, we use a variety of techniques and devices. We use CoolTouch® and lasers to decrease the oil combinations so prevalent in acne. We add to this an LED treatment, which decreases the bacteria associated with acne.
Why seek laser treatment for acne?
Acne is generally successfully treated with a variety of topical and oral medications. Inflammatory acne often requires the chronic use of antibiotics by mouth. Severe cystic acne may be treated with medications like Accutane. Treating acne with lasers may lessen the amount of antibiotics required, while also accelerating results of your treatment. Laser treatment can improve not only the inflamed acne but may also lead to the reduction of acne scars.
How many treatments are required?
Most patients require approximately 5-7 monthly treatments to see the desired improvement. Periodic re-treatments will be required as acne reappears.
Can I combine laser treatment with other acne treatments?
Absolutely! Laser acne treatments may be combined such as microdermabrasion and dermalinfusion, leading to even better results than with the laser alone. Chemical peels can also help to exfoliate the dark marks acne leaves behind. During your consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists in NYC or NJ, be sure discuss all your concerns so you can agree on the ideal treatment plan.

How do I get started?
Dr. Goldberg and his staff will be happy to discuss acne treatment with you.

Our physicians develop multi-level plans that start with proper at-home skin care, and expand into laser treatments, topical medications and facial cleansings with an aesthetician. This approach enhances the success of our acne treatment programs. Please feel free to call for a private consultation at one of our offices in NYC or NJ.
