The Accure Laser System is a safe and effective FDA-approved energy-based smart device that treats mild to severe acne (acne vulgaris) in patients with results that are lasting at least two years. The Accure laser specifically targets and neutralizes overactive oil glands (sebaceous glands) that sit beneath the surface of the skin. By targeting or shrinking the sebaceous glands, we can decrease the oil production that would subsequently lead to acne formation.
Acne affects more than 50 million adolescents and adults annually, making it one of the most commonly treated skin conditions by healthcare providers.
Accure laser treatments are a great option for those who may have tried and failed other acne treatments such as different lasers, chemical peels, oral medications, and/or topical medications. The non-invasive acne treatment is safe for all skin types and an excellent option for those who are not a candidate for isotretinoin, also known by its brand name, Accutane®.
Some of the reasons many patients fail conventional medication treatments are due to:
• Medications that are not appropriate for all people.
• Fear of taking medications and their side effects on your body.
• Time associated with office visits and pre-authorizations through your insurance company.
With Accure laser treatment, the average patient will typically need 3 – 4 treatments that are spaced out about a month apart. A treatment usually lasts 45 minutes. A topical anesthetic is applied prior to the treatment. There is no downtime or side effects associated with this treatment, and patients can resume normal activity immediately. You will likely notice fewer acne lesions after two treatments. Current studies have shown that the results are lasting at least two years but may vary by patient.
