Acne (Active and Scars)

What is acne? 

Acne is a common skin condition that affects many people at some  point during their lives. It is a complex and continuous cycle  that can be caused by many factors, resulting in a hormonal fluctuation that stimulates oil production. It is most common  in adolescents but can be experienced at any age and range from mild to severe. Too often, people squeeze spots and blemishes because of their unpleasant appearance. Unfortunately,  the habit can increase inflammation and, in extreme cases, lead to permanent scars.

What can laser treatment do to help my acne? 

Laser treatment reduces acne inflammation (Active Acne) through photoselective  absorption and controlled heating. The laser safely penetrates the skin  to an optimal treatment depth to thermally and selectively destroy overactive sebaceous glands. In addition, the treatment accelerates the healing process and stimulates collagen remodeling, an important step in the long-term treatment of acne.

What if I have acne scars?

Laser is ideal  for mild scar revision.  It safely and effectively  penetrates the skin for gentle  resurfacing of acne-scarred skin,  helping to improve your skin’s texture  and tone. Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing allows  the penetration depth to be precisely controlled by the practitioner. The laser gently vaporizes micron-thin layers of the acne-scarred surface to reveal healthy, undamaged skin below.

What can I expect from the treatment?

Each  person  is different  but during the  treatment, you can  expect minimal to mild  discomfort. Immediately following  treatment, you may experience some redness or swelling that will diminish after a few hours. Most patients can resume their daily  activities immediately following the treatment. It is best to avoid direct sun for a few days following treatment and  to apply sunscreen.
