If you have been plagued by the problems associated with the skin condition known as acne, you may have tried a number of topical treatments with little to no success. Perhaps you have considered a treatment like ProSkin Clinics Laser Acne Treatment, but have been put off for a variety of different reasons. It may be time to reconsider and to help you we have gathered together what we feel are some of the most noteworthy advantages of laser acne treatment.
Reduces The Body’s Production of Oil
The build up of oil is part of the cause of acne in the first place. It is worth noting that blue and red light treatment along with pulsed dye laser and photo-dynamic therapy can be used to target these glands to reduce the amount of oil they produce.
Acne itself and the scarring caused by spots can not only be an irritant and painful, but it also does not look very good and can really affect your confidence. Lasers can not only help to remove the scarring and improve your skin’s appearance, but can also encourage skin growth. When the layer just below the skin is heated with laser resurfacing, while the wound is healing, a new layer of healthy skin is formed. Although it is true that numerous appointments are required for the best results, the recovery time after treatment is very short with laser treatment.
Scars are obviously hard to hide and treat. Lasers though can be used as a very effective method of reducing scars and following on from the above paragraph, it is worth pointing out that this can be done using fractional laser resurfacing.
Decreases Bacterial Inflammation
Along with too much oil, a build up of bacteria in the skin causes acne, but lasers can be used to target this bacteria and the related inflammation. Laser and light therapies can be used to treat the problem layers below the first layer, while leaving the outermost skin unaffected.
Reduces Redness Caused By Acne
While it is true that redness around the face is more closely associated to rosacea, it can also be an effect of acne. Pulsed dye laser and Intense-pulled light therapies can be used however to reduce the redness. As with other forms of laser treatment, you may need a number of sittings, the positive results last for a long time.
Treats Broken Blood Vessels
Broken blood vessels are another less than flattering result of acne and it is good to note that lasers can be used to treat them also. Again, for the best possible results, you would have to undergo several sessions of the treatment, but you have to, like any of the advantages above, weigh up if it’s worth it or not.
