Gona get laser (for active acne and to prevent it)

My appt. is April 2 at 2:10 at Geisinger in pa and when I called down there today about it they said they do it for acne and it will prevent it and will have the laser done the next week because they only do laser every other week. Il keep you guys updated on what goes on. Anyone else have this done?

Are you saying that you have to "get laser"
done every other week (eternally) to prevent
acne?

How much is each session?

I dont know the price yet but il tell you guys. No the hosiptal only does laser every other week i guess because the docs might have their own places they work at.

Re: Gona get laser (for active acne and to prevent it)

what type of laser is this now? i don't recall ever hearing of any laser which will prevent acne. in fact, with some lasers, they can't even be used on skin with active acne. i think there are some lasers that help with acne a bit (pulsed-dye, nlite), but, they aren't really 'lasers' as we think of them. and yeah, check on price if you would.
