Laser Acne Reduction Treatment in Los Angeles

Acne is nothing new. Aristotle wrote about it. So did Hippocrates. Even King Tut was buried with acne treatments for the afterlife.

Today, we have a newer laser acne reduction treatment in Los Angeles to clear up acne and diminish scarring!

Younique Surgery Center and Med Spa uses Blue Light Levulan therapy, delivering 3 acne benefits:

  1. Deactivation of the bacteria that triggers acne.
  2. Removal of the topmost layer of skin to unclog pores and reduce scarring.
  3. Shut down of sebaceous glands in the skin—the root cause of acne.

Acne reduction treatment provides long-lasting effects for acne and the scarring it can cause.

Benefits of Laser Acne Reduction in Los Angeles


A safe, topical, 2-step treatment that chemically coats and then destroys acne bacteria.


Our laser acne reduction treatment peels the top layers of scarring, reducing or eliminating them.

Long Lasting

The results of our acne reduction treatment can last a lifetime with proper lifestyle choices and maintenance.

The Laser Acne Reduction Treatment Process

What to Expect



It starts with a personal consultation with your trained and licensed Younique provider. During this relaxing and energizing one-on-one, they’ll discuss your concerns, your goals for treatment, and your medical history. If your provider determines that acne reduction treatment in Los Angeles is the best treatment for your concerns and goals, your session can be scheduled.



First, your Younique provider will remove all makeup and thoroughly cleanse the treatment area. Next, the Levulan topical medicine is applied to the skin, which works to enhance the effectiveness of the second step. Protective goggles will be placed, and then we apply our specialized laser that has been tuned to specific blue light wavelengths. This blue light penetrates your skin just deep enough to destroy bacteria that cause inflammatory acne, while also peeling the top layer of skin to rejuvenate the area and reduce scarring.



While side effects from laser acne reduction treatment are uncommon, you may get redness of skin that will last a week at most, during which time you should do no exercise for recovery purposes. You may also encounter skin discoloration, which can make your skin either lighter or darker. Depending on the person, you may experience slightly more discomfort, which will fade over a short period of time after your laser acne treatment. Expect some peeling as your body discards the destroyed scar tissue. Avoid all sun exposure for 2 to 3 days.
