How Does Acne Treatment Work?

Depending on your treatment plan, you'll receive PRP therapy, a chemical peel, or laser therapy. Your appointment will vary based on your choices. Dr. Mang will discuss what to expect with each form of treatment, as well as follow-up visits to keep your skin smooth and beautiful.

  • Laser Therapy: Throughout the short procedure, Dr. Mang will lightly move the laser around your skin to take out blackheads and destroy acne-causing microbes. You might experience some discomfort during the procedure, but the majority of patients describe it as a slight prickling feeling. Laser acne treatment helps renew your skin, enabling you to accomplish a magnificent look.
  • PRP: PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a short procedure that injects plasma from your own blood into treatment areas to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which reduce the appearance of acne scars. The stimulation of blood flow and oxygen removes the buildup of toxins, preventing new breakouts. This is a safe and effective form of acne treatment with little downtime and minimal side effects.
  • Chemical Peel: A chemical peel is a great option for acne treatment as the exfoliation and neutralizing agent work to reduce breakouts and pore blockages, as well as reduce scarring. This is best for those with mild acne.

What Can I Expect After My Acne Treatment?

After your acne treatment, Dr. Mang or a member of his team will go over an at-home care routine with you to ensure you heal properly and are able to create a healthy routine at home. If you had a chemical peel, you can get back to your daily routine. You can expect some redness and peeling of the skin, but this is normal and will diminish over time. Like the chemical peel, if you had PRP, you should be able to get right back to your daily routine. You will likely experience some swelling and slight bruising around your treated areas, but this should be mild and won't last long. With laser therapy, you may experience some redness, puffiness, and skin sensitivity; however, you can expect to see results within 24 – 48 hours. No matter which option you choose, Dr. Mang will likely schedule follow-up sessions to keep your skin healthy and glowing.

Acne Treatment FAQ

How much does laser acne treatment cost?
The price of your laser acne treatment is typically based on the number of appointments that comprise your personal treatment plan. During the preparation phases, Dr. Mang will look at the quality of your skin and review how many appointments you should have to achieve your goals.

How long do laser acne treatment results last?
Results after laser acne treatment vary for each person. Given that laser acne treatment treats current blemishes, you might have to get additional procedures if your acne starts to flare up again and keep up with an effective skin care regimen at home.

What are the risks and complications of PRP therapy?
Possible side effects from PRP, when done as a standalone procedure, are very mild and include only prolonged swelling and minor bruising.

Is PRP therapy painful?
Injections of PRP serum feel like a wrinkle filler or relaxer injection with the extra step of extracting the plasma. Typically, patients feel a mild pressure or pinch during the injection. If you're concerned about feeling pain, ask if you can receive local anesthesia before the injection is performed.

Will my face hurt after a chemical peel?
Based on the formula used, you might have some discomfort throughout the treatment and shortly after. If you have a light peel, you will probably feel some discomfort; however, this goes away quickly with a handheld fan. Deep or medium peels are better for deeper skin blemishes and offer results that last a long time; however, they typically cause greater discomfort. Numbing cream, skin medications, and ointments can be used to help you feel more comfortable during your chemical peel. Dr. Mang or a member of his team will go over how to care for your skin after a peel to extend your results.
