Acne and Large Pores

Acne

Acne is a common skin condition that affects the skin’s oil glands and hair follicles. Acne can form when oily secretions from the skin’s glands plug tiny openings for hair follicles. When these openings are large, the clogs take the form of blackheads, while when they are smaller, they are called whiteheads.

FAQs

The Cutera excel® V treats face conditions by administering a unique high power green laser that is absorbed by the abnormal blood vessels in the skin. The laser will heat these vessels until they are removed.

Minimal preparation is required, but to avoid sun exposure, not to shave, and to stop using creams containing retinol, as this affects skin sensitivity.

Unlike other procedures, injections or topical anesthesia are not required. The procedure typically takes 15 to 30 minutes, and the device is placed over the affected area until the abnormal vessels diminish.

Most sessions only take 5 to 10 minutes, but can take up to 45.

Results are visible immediately after the first session. Additional sessions may be required depending on your condition.

Cutera excel® V treatments can feel similar to a pinprick. Depending on the procedure, a cold treatment tip will be used to protect the skin and provide comfort to the area. A topical anesthetic may also be used.

Redness and/or swelling can be expected and will resolve within a few days. Typically, patients can wear makeup and return to normal activities immediately.
