What is ThermaScan for Acne & Acne scars?

ThermaScan sets new standards in the treatment of acne and several other skin conditions. ThermaScan’s infrared energy will allow your physician to precisely treat acne. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin condition and desired results.

What will ThermaScan laser do? 

The acne treatment uses an infrared laser to treat your condition. The laser energy delivered by the ThermaScan gently heats up the upper layers of your skin/dermis. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will reach the sebaceous glands in your skin, thus reducing the number of active acne lesions. ThermaScan acne therapy is effective on all skin types and tones. 

How many treatments will I need? 

Clinical studies suggest that at least one to two treatments are needed to see results. Most of the patient will see results after the first treatment. Typically patients will receive 2 treatments per week thereafter until acne clears. Our physician will recommend the best options for you. 

How long will it take to recover? 

One of the most outstanding features of this treatment is that there is virtually no downtime associated with the procedure. After a session, the area treated may appear red for up to an hour. No wound is created, therefore, there is no healing time required. 

What should I expect after the treatment? 

Typically you will experience some redness that will resolve within a few hours. Since results vary depending on patient condition, number of treatments and area treated, your physician will provide you with all the complete information about the post treatment effects and results. 

Will it be uncomfortable? 

Acne treatment is gentle and non-invasive. There should be minimal or no discomfort. You may feel a warming of the skin or a rubber band snap like sensation as the procedure is performed. However, this varies from patient to patient and depends on the depth of the treatment. A topical anesthetic cream can be used on extra-sensitive areas. However, no injections are needed. 

What will happen during the procedure? 

Our physician will discuss all the options with you. Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. You may feel a warming of the skin or a rubber band snap like sensation as the laser energy is absorbed by the targeted areas. Your procedure takes between 15 and 30 minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type and depth of the procedure performed.
