Accelera Laser for Acne Treatment
The Accelera Laser Acne treatment utilises 2 forms of lasers for treating acne. Both nano-second and sub-millisecond laser types are used to clear active acne, and at the same time reducing facial hair and rejuvenating the skin.
How does Accelera Laser work?
The main component used in the Accelera Laser Acne Treatment is the Quasi Long-pulsed 1064nm wavelength laser from the QX MAX machine.
Using the Quasi Long-pulsed combined with the Q-Switched mode, this treatment works by effectively killing P-acne bacteria responsible for acne outbreaks. The long-pulsed mode of the laser also causes a reduction of facial hairs, which results in less clogged pores and clearer skin.
The added benefits of combining the Q-Switched mode also include rejuvenating the skin, clearing debris and brightening the skin.
About the Quasi Long-Pulsed Laser:
This is a subtype of a Q-Switched Laser that penetrates into the skin and is absorbed by red blood cells and melanin (pigmentations). As it is readily absorbed by red blood cells and melanin, the Quasi Long-Pulse Laser is perfect for targeting visible red blood vessels on the surface of your skin. It is also effective in removing red spots such as cherry angiomas.
Is it painful?
The laser feels like a gentle, warm “prickling” sensation on the skin and is not painful. However, areas of the skin with active acne might be slightly more painful during treatment. The feeling is equivalent to touching a swollen pimple repeatedly.
Will there be downtime?
The Accelera Laser Acne treatment has minimal downtime.
Like most lasers at Mizu, it does not break the continuity in skin tissue during treatment. There might be mild flushing and redness of the treated area which usually resolves after about 30 – 60 minutes. However, like all medical treatments, there is a chance of side effects and complications.
How many sessions will I need?
Depending on the severity of your acne, it may require 2 – 5 treatment sessions. Each session is done about 2 – 4 weeks apart.
At Mizu, we believe in an individually tailored aesthetics program.
Patients with acne problems can choose one of our individually tailored programs to include both the Accelera Laser acne treatment together with a Carbon Laser Peel for better results. Each individual would be recommended a series of treatments that can include combination treatments.
