Acne is a common skin condition that affects many people during their lives. It can be a complex and continuous cycle caused by many factors, such as hormonal fluctuation and excessive oil production. It is most common in adolescents but can be experienced at any age, ranging 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.
Laser treatment of active acne reduces inflammation by heating overactive sebaceous glands. The power of laser accelerates the healing process and reduces the possibility of developing new acne inflammation.
A high-power laser wavelength penetrates the skin deep enough to thermally and selectively destroy the large sebaceous glands that cause active acne. LED Therapy follows this to promote healing and reduce inflammation.
Treating Active Acne and acne Scarring with laser is the least invasive method possible. Complete recovery is achieved with minimal downtime and, in some cases, resolved without any medication required.
