Inflammatory acne treatment by Dr. Nassir
The toughest inflammatory acne doesn’t respond to oral antibiotics or topical creams. For these instances, OC Skin Laser Center uses the Cutera XEO laser system to treat the area.
Using a special wavelength of light, our technician can not only heal the skin underneath the acne but also kill the p. acnes bacteria that causes the acne in the first place. Once destroyed, the bacteria can no longer infect or irritate the skin, which allows the body to naturally heal itself and return your skin to its natural, healthy state.
While laser treatment is a very effective way to treat inflammatory acne, it is not always a guaranteed fix. Our knowledgeable staff will help you determine whether or not this treatment is right for you, and will guide you through the entire process of treating your skin.
Please contact our office for more information on laser acne treatment or to schedule your consultation.
