What is an Acne Laser Facial?
The acne laser facial is a unique combination of a medical grade facial followed by the acne laser treatment to deliver optimal results. The treatment begins with a detoxifying cleanser to exfoliate and remove impurities. Extractions will be performed to remove blackheads or whiteheads that are clogging pores. Once the skin has been cleansed, the laser treatment will be performed on the skin; several passes can be performed depending on tolerance. At the end of the treatment, a cooling masque will be applied to soothe the skin and calm any redness.
Through laser technology, skin care regimen customization, and hands-on experience, SliMedica has developed an effective program that battles acne fast AND minimizes future breakouts to finally achieve clearer, healthier skin.
What is Acne?
Acne, medically known as acne vulgaris, involves the overproduction of oil, or sebum, in the sebaceous glands. Your pores become clogged by the oil and infected with bacteria, leading to blemishes and painful inflammation. When acne is left untreated, it can lead to serious and permanent scarring.

How Does the Laser Work?
Laser treatment of active acne reduces acne inflammation through photoselective absorption and controlled heating effects. Fotona’s high powered Nd: YAG laser safely penetrates the skin to an optimal treatment depth to thermally and selectively destroy overactive sebaceous glands. In addition to its thermal penetration effects, the acne laser treatment also accelerates the healing process and stimulates collagen remodeling, an important step in the long-term treatment of acne.
Is this Treatment Painful?
Following treatment, your skin may experience temporary redness that can last a few hours. Most guests have described it as pain-free. There is no anesthesia or cooling required during the laser treatment. The treatment is well-tolerated by guests with mild discomfort described during the treatment.
When Will I See Results?
Most guests see a significant reduction of acne after only one treatment. For best results, multiple treatments are recommended. The treatments can be performed 2-4 weeks apart. An acne expert will help you select the best treatment plan.
