I have been a long time sufferer of severe acne and now of course I have a lot of acne scars. I am thinking about getting laser treatment for both my acne and acne scars. They say that the laser treatment is permanent for stopping acne. Is this true? I sure hope so. Well, I have been researching online available doctors in the Los Angeles area. I found 2 places online. One is called Laser & Dermatology Institute of California and the other is called Celibre. I have went to both of their offices for a consultation. They offered me what seems like completely different lasers for the same treatment. Celibre offered me treatment with a Coherent Ultrafine Erbium Laser and Laser & Dermatology Institute offered me a package and said not one laser can do the job right. On the Laser & Dermatology Institute site they list the Smooth Beam, Erbium, Cynosure, and Candela lasers for treatment of acne and acne scars. Which lasers are the right lasers? I am researching the 2 places and the different lasers on the internet again right now. So far I find that the Smooth Beam seems to be the best choice. I did my own research online and found out that the doctor at the Laser & Dermatology Institute is an actual dermatologist and a member of the American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery. The other doctor from Celibre is a cosmetic surgeon. In fact, he has a separate practice and was not at Celibre for my consultation. It is a difficult choice for me because the Laser & Dermatology Institute charges more for their services. However, I did get to talk to the actual doctor at Laser & Dermatology Institute and he seemed like he knew what he was talking about. I don't think that the doctor for Celibre is ever there. Anybody know for a fact? Please any advice and comments will be helpful. Did anybody have laser treatment for acne and acne scars? Thanks!
