I would recommend that you see your dermatologist for an evaluation of your acne.  It may be necessary to use a topical antibiotic.

Sometimes the inflammation after a treatment can cause an acne eruption.  You may want to discuss this with your doctor about using a topical cream before treatment to reduce the risk of this.  Duac or Benzaclin are good choices.  Discuss this with your doctor.
