What is the Accure Laser?
Accure laser is a revolutionary therapy designed to treat mild to severe acne that underwent clinical development at our center prior to FDA clearance. Designed by Quanta Systems, the Accure 1726nm laser was approved for all types of acne. We are one of a few centers in the country to offer this laser treatment and the first in New York.
How does the Accure Laser Treat Acne?
Accure is a unique laser that uses light energy to target the sebaceous glands. The sebaceous glands produce sebum, an oily substance that plays a key role in acne formation. Accure reduces the amount of sebum production by targeting and destroying the bacteria that accumulate in the gland. This helps to keep sebum levels balanced and can reduce the severity of breakouts. Additionally, this process can help to reduce inflammation, pain, and discomfort associated with acne.
The laser treatment uses an innovative pulsing algorithm and temperature monitoring to precisely control the thermal depth of the laser. This proprietary technology makes the laser safe and efficient for reducing acne and producing clearer skin.
What Is the Treatment Like?
Accure is a light-based laser that has unique controls to deliver precise pulses to the dermal layer and target overactive oil glands. Before the laser treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied to the target area for a comfortable experience. Depending on the size of the treatment area and the severity of the acne, treatment can take approximately 30 minutes to one hour. The advanced acne treatment delivers temperature-regulated pulses deep into the skin to reduce oil production in the sebaceous gland. Patients can expect minimal downtime and recovery from this non-invasive acne treatment.
When Will I see Results?
Patients can expect to see results within a few weeks. The skin can take several weeks to regulate oil production for visible results. As oil production decreases and existing acne heals, patients can see improving skin tone and texture.
Is There Downtime After Treatment?
There is minimal downtime following an Accure laser treatment. Patients may experience side effects such as:
- Dryness or crusting
Side effects typically subside within 1-3 days, and patients can return to normal activities while following proper aftercare instructions.
