Acne is a problem for many people. Almost everyone has experienced acne at some point in their life, and many people have recurring problems with severe outbreaks which can lead to scarring. Luckily, whether you are looking to get rid of acne scars or reduce active acne, Cosmetic Laser Dermatology has a solution for you.
Some of the lasers we use to treat active acne are:
- Lumenis ResurFX
- Blu-U (PDT)
- CoolTouch III
- Aktilite (PDT)
- Infini RF Microneedling
The CoolTouch CoolBreeze laser can help with both active acne and acne scarring. It shrinks the sebaceous glands in order to reduce oil production which leads to acne, and stimulates collagen production to help reduce scarring and allow the skin to become smoother. After a series of CoolTouch sessions, your acne will be noticeably reduced, as will your acne scars.
With our latest treatment and news
Blu-U Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy
Blu-U is a photodynamic therapy, or PDT, treatment which uses blue light to kill active acne bacteria in your skin. This treatment is not painful or uncomfortable; you will simply sit with the blue light targeted on your problem acne areas. Blu-U is not a laser, and is not used with a topical solution for the treatment of acne.
Lumenis ResurFX is a gentle, non-ablative laser which delivers results after a single pass of the laser. The ResurFX has a great level of precision and control, allowing your expert dermatologist to customize your treatment and target your skin precisely with just one pass. This laser is extremely effective at reducing both active acne and acne scarring.

Isolaz acne light treatment uses the “CPR” method of fighting acne: cleansing, purifying, and replenishing. Results can be seen after a mere 24 to 48 hours following treatment, with around 75% reduction in redness and acne lesions after two months. In addition, Isolaz can be used safely on all skin types, light and dark!
Aktilite Red Light PDT
Aktilite is a photodynamic therapy which uses red light combined with Metvixia topical cream to help reduce acne lesions and scars. The light interacts with the cream to create a reaction which helps to reduce the appearance of acne. This treatment is safe and effective!
Infini RF Microneedling
The new Infini RF Microneedling uses gold-tipped microneedles that conduct radiofrequency energy into the deep layer of skin for effective kick starting of collagen production and more dramatic results than microneedling alone. By promoting collagen creation through heating and tightening deep skin tissue, acne scars can be greatly improved in their appearance. Performed by a physician, Infini RF Microneedling also uses patented ComfortFlow technology to minimize patient discomfort and ensure that recovery is fast and easy.
Infini has customizable depth control, from 0.5mm all the way to 3.5mm, and adjustable power levels, timers, and tip sizes, in order to precisely customize RF microneedling treatment in accordance with patient goals.
