"I had a rhinoplasty done and the results are amazing. Dr. Garcia was an amazing doctor and did everything I asked and more. He always answered any questions I needed and made sure I was taken care of. I would definitely recommend this doctor to anyone and would use him again if I had other surgeries."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Dec 20, 2019
"It was better than I could have imagined. I healed somewhat quickly, little pain which lasted only a short time. Dr. Garcia is a magician, a plastic surgeon Houdini. He is kind and personable and listens to you. I would recommend him to all who would ask."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Dec 15, 2019
"It’s been one month since my surgery and the results are remarkable. I look at least years younger and totally natural. There was no pain in recovery only discomfort from the swelling. I was given instructions to follow for two weeks prior to surgery and for two weeks after surgery. Honestly, the most annoying part was having to wash my hair twice a day for the first week. Dr. Garcia and Erin were only a phone call away whenever I had any questions. My initial consultation and all of my visits were on time, informative and I never felt rushed or pressured. I am so impressed with Dr. Garcia’s work and knowledge. I never had surgery before and was a little apprehensive but confident that I would be in good hands under his care and I am so fortunate to have found him."- M.G. / Google / Nov 14, 2019
Ideal candidates for laser acne treatment are struggling with moderate to severe acne that is not responsive to skin care or oral and topical medications. These individuals may be experiencing skin damage, discoloration, and scarring from their acne. Severe acne can change the texture and tone of your skin when left untreated.
To complete your laser acne treatment, a member of our team will ask you to get comfortable in one of our procedure chairs before prepping your skin. The session will last about 20 minutes, during which time the Cynosure laser applicator will deliver heat and laser energy to your skin, promoting healing and destroying bacteria. Simultaneously, the laser will stimulate the production of collagen beneath your skin to expedite healing and promote the growth of new clearer skin. You will be provided with eye protection during your treatment.
What to Expect
The Contoura skin care team recommends that you do not wear cosmetics for 24 hours following the procedure. Laser acne treatment does not often cause side effects so patients should be able to return to their daily activities immediately following their sessions. You may notice that your skin is red and a bit irritated post-treatment, but this will fade in the coming days. We recommend 4 – 6 treatment sessions each spaced about one month apart for the best possible results.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need multiple sessions?
Our skin care team will customize your treatment plan to meet your unique skin care goals. This may include many or just a few sessions. If your acne is moderate to severe, you will best benefit from several sessions scheduled a month apart. During your consultation, we will explain this to you in more detail.
Does Cynosure laser acne treatment hurt?
Laser acne treatment is a very tolerable treatment with many patients reporting only minor discomfort during their sessions. If it would make you feel more at ease, a numbing cream can be applied to your skin before the treatment is initiated.
How should I care for my skin after the procedure?
During your consultation and then again after your session, a member of the Contoura skin care team will provide you with detailed instructions for aftercare. We recommend patients refrain from direct sunlight for the first day following treatment. If you will need to be in direct sunlight, we recommend a hat or sunscreen to protect your skin.
How much does laser acne treatment cost?
The cost of your Cynosure laser acne treatment will depend on the number of sessions needed to obtain your desired results. A member of the Contoura skin care team can discuss these costs with you in detail during your initial consultation. Our practice accepts many forms of payment methods.
Cynosure is an effective, long-term solution for the treatment of overactive sebaceous glands, oil buildup, and clogged pores. The laser systems also allow for less downtime and better results than other lasers.
