Recommended number of treatments varies for each individual, generally 4-6 sessions are recommended. At Raw Canvas in Fort Langley we offer various options for acne laser treatments with our Laser Genesis (Cutera Excel V Laser) and Forever Clear BBL. 


What It Treats

Living with active acne can be frustrating and confusing. At Raw Canvas, we understand the differences and nuances of each unique canvas. Just as each canvas is different, each acne story is too. We offer unique treatment plans that are specialized for your complexion and skin type. Do you have cystic acne, adult acne, or active acne on the surface of your skin? We’re here to help.

We’ll begin with an in-depth consultation to analyze your skin type, complexion, and concerns. Once we’ve established the potential causes of your acne, we’ll take the next steps with a treatment strategy that gets right to the source. We love helping our clients rewrite their skin stories – for a future that’s acne-free!

How It Works

Since acne is so specific to each individual, your technician will create a customized treatment plan just for you. Our lasers specifically target sebaceous glands, to treat acne at the core. Treatments here at Raw Canvas are created for clients that want to get rid of cystic acne, surface acne and improve/soften acne scarring. Our laser machines are safe, fast, and highly effective. It works by creating a balance between both heating and cooling the skin which will protect the treated area as well as ensuring safety of the individual's skin.

Pre Treatment

We’ll first clean your skin of any makeup and moisturizers. For male clients, you’ll need to shave in order for us to treat your lower face.

If you are new to this treatment, please book a "Spot Treatment" at least 24 hours before your appointment (72 hours for skin type 5). We will spot test to ensure you do not negatively react.

Post Treatment

You can immediately return to normal activities, utilizing sunscreen if participating In outdoor activities.


How long does the treatment take?

It can take as little as 20-30 minutes, depending on the area you are looking to treat, as well as the treatment you are receiving. Treatment time varies from patient to patient.

What will happen during the procedure?

Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. If being treated with Forever Clear BBL, you may briefly feel a warm or “rubber band snap” sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. If being treated with Laser Genesis, you will feel a comfortable warm light over your face. Your procedure may take 20-30 minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed. We will discuss all of your options with you including the benefits, risks and what to expect.

Are acne laser treatments painful?

All of our acne laser procedures are non-invasive. Generally, there is little to no pain and no need for a topical anesthetic; however, we may choose to use it depending on the patient's sensitivities/pain tolerance. If being treated with Laser Genesis, you will experience a gentle warming of your skin's surface during the procedure as the laser hand-piece is moved back and forth about 1/2 inch above your skin. If being treated with Forever Clear BBL, you may feel a sensation of a "rubber band snapping" on your skin.

What should I expect after the treatment?

You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. Contact us if it does not. For some spots, you will see a darkening of the treated areas followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Results depend on your skin type, the number of treatments, and the area treated. We will provide you with complete information about the post treatment care and results.

How long will it take to recover?

Acne laser treatments are non-invasive and typically gentle procedures with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to return to work, and resume most of your activities immediately.

What aftercare do I need?

It is important to follow our post-treatment instructions. You may be recommended some skin care products and provided with instructions on how to use them. You will be sensitive to ultraviolet light, and you must avoid direct sun exposure until completely healed. Fully cover your skin or use a good sunscreen wherever you go outdoors.
