How many laser treatments are usually needed to treat acne?

Dr. Doris Day, MD
Dermatology
The number of treatment sessions required to achieve results depends on the system used and the severity of acne at the start of treatment. Also, there are almost always maintenance treatments that are required to minimize acne flare-ups. Most insurance companies are either not covering the cost of laser/intense pulsed light treatments or are covering them for a specific number of treatments. It is important to check with your insurance company to make sure that you will be covered for the treatments or be prepared to discuss the fees with your doctor’s office to make sure that you want to proceed.
