The treatment is designed to be convenient and fast. The procedure is performed in the comfort of our office. Some patients have seen results after just one session. If you ever tried treating your acne with a topical cream, there is a reason it most likely failed. This type of cream is unable to penetrate your skin deeply enough to reach the acne-causing bacteria. The laser penetrates deeply to reach and kill this bacteria. Your sebaceous gland produces oil. This is meant to protect your hair and skin. An overactive sebaceous gland is one of the main causes of acne. This gland is frequently damaged by the laser treatment. This results in fewer breakouts.
Acne breakouts often result in skin pigmentation imperfections and redness. In addition to helping stop breakouts, certain types of laser therapy also decrease irregularities in the tone of your skin and reduce inflammation. The healing process of your body is triggered by this energy. This can eliminate or fade scar tissue.
Again, each type of laser uses a different wavelength to effectively penetrate your skin to the depth desired. Certain lasers are effective for removing acne scars while others are meant to treat your acne. The results are dependent on the kind of laser being used and other factors. The procedure can destroy the glands responsible for the production of too much oil or kill the bacteria responsible for the acne. Specific kinds of acne result in inflammation that can often be healed with the cold laser energy. The treatments are effective for numerous types of acne, including severe, moderate and mild. The medical professional knows which treatment combinations will work best for each individual.
The laser treatments are appropriate for individuals with sensitive skin and are non-invasive. The laser attacks the oil glands or bacteria by penetrating underneath the skin. It does not cause any damage to the surface of the skin and provides an excellent option for individuals who scar easily. The treatment is also effective and safe for any individual with chemical allergies. The procedure is not said to be uncomfortable. No antibiotics are necessary because the acne-causing bacteria is destroyed by the laser.
The treatment works fast. Future acne breakouts are often prevented by the treatment. This type of treatment lasts a lot longer than the majority of available acne procedures. The individual also saves money because there is no need to purchase medicated skin creams or antibiotics.
The reason acne occurs is the accumulation of bacteria, sebum and dead skin cells in the skin pores. This is what causes lesions and inflammation. There is a mechanism in the body to repair this damage. This results in changes in the skin forming raised areas and indentations called keloidal and hypertrophic scars and changing the texture of the skin.
When the collagen formation is too extensive, it causes a scar. This means the healing process of the body is often responsible for the scar. The amount of collagen lost or formed by the skin determines the type of scar. The loss of tissue from the recovery process forms an atrophic scar. The result is often a severe depression within the skin. The three most common kinds of atrophic scarring are boxcar scars with a wide base in the shape of a U, rolling scars with the shape of an M and deep ice pick scars. Keloid and hypertrophic scars result from too much collagen formation in the skin. This results is rigid areas and bumps on the surface of the skin. In areas that contained acne, there are often collagen bundles.
A hypertrophic scar is raised and located on the site of the acne or injury. This scar is wide and thick, usually resulting due to the healing process. Keloid scars are purple and red papules often spreading well beyond the area affected. Both keloid and hypertrophic scars generally form on the trunk and are more common in individuals with darker skin.
