Who can benefit from laser acne treatment?
If your acne is severe enough to warrant being put on a strong prescription medication, such as antibiotics, NYC acne laser treatment with the Icon Aesthetic System may be in your best interest. It’s the ideal option for patients who suffer from persistent acne despite following a healthy skin care regimen comprised of daily gentle cleansing, acne treatments, moisturizer and sunscreen. It’s also a terrific treatment for individuals who want to stay away from traditional medicine and are looking for an extremely effective alternative. Conversely, it’s far too powerful of a procedure for individuals who suffer from minor breakouts that tend to clear up fairly quickly.
Benefits of laser acne treatment with the Icon Aesthetic System
Having your persistent acne treated with the powerful Icon Aesthetic System comes with a number of appealing benefits, including:
It’s safe for pregnant women
Despite the fact that acne tends to flare up during pregnancy due to hormonal changes, the vast majority of the strongest acne treatments available – including lasers and prescription medications – are not considered to be safe for pregnant women. As of right now, the Icon Aesthetic System is the most powerful treatment that can safely help pregnant women combat acne.
Minimal side effects
Prescription acne medications come with a host of uncomfortable and unintended side effects. Laser acne treatment in NYC with the Icon Aesthetic System is completely free of these risks, making it one of the safest acne solutions available.
No medications or creams necessary
Applying acne cream to your face and/or taking medication every day can be a hassle. And if you forget just a few doses or applications, your acne could come back with a vengeance. With the Icon Aesthetic System, you simply come to Dr. Scarpidis’ office and receive your treatment – making life and your skincare regimen much easier.

What to expect during laser acne treatments
Your New York acne treatments will be performed in the comfort of Dr. Scarpidis’ private office. Depending on the size of the area being treated, you can expect the entire procedure to last about twenty minutes. Though most patients find their laser acne treatments to be extremely comfortable, some report minor discomfort, along with swelling, redness and a stinging sensation for the first 24 hours. However, all of these effects will be mild, and should not prohibit you from resuming your normal daily routine immediately after your treatment.
As the Icon Aesthetic System clears up your acne over time, you will require about eight treatments, spaced approximately two months apart, for optimal results. At the end of those treatments, you can expect to possess clearer and more radiant skin that you’ll be proud to show off.
