Acne Skin Laser Treatments

Acne Skin Laser Therapy is an appealing treatment for acne

Advancements in Laser technology has meant smaller more portable devises which can be used to treat acne skin conditions in the privacy of your own home

There are many laser and pulsed light operating systems available today to treat acne. Here we will cover two laser therapy options commonly used in specialist Laser Clinics and Medi Spas to familiarize you with the service.

Is a method used to deliver wavelengths of light to target photosensitive porphyrins which live inside bacteria. The wavelengths damage the bacterial wall effectively killing the bacteria thereby inhibiting future acne breakouts.

Patients can expect to experience little to no down-time with only a mild sunburn-like sensation experienced post treatment or mild swelling and/or redness. This usually lasts 2-24 hours and usually resolves within 2-3 days.

If treatment has gone over a pigmented area then lightening or darkening of that area may also occur. Typically treating 2 times per week for a total of 4 weeks has been found to produce the best results.

When an acne patient presents with face pitting, or deep holes in the skin as a result of acne, laser skin resurfacing could provide the answer to remove areas of damaged skin, layer by layer.

Laser Resurfacing

Fractional non-ablative skin resurfacing uses the principal of fractional photothermolysis. Throughout the treatment, columns of microbeams are delivered through the epidermis and dermis to stimulate the elastin and collagen production. This allows the body’s natural healing process to quickly and efficiently create new, healthy tissue to fill in the coagulated columns.

Post treatment you can expect there may be an initial flare-up of acne; however acne blemishes typically fade after about 2- 3 weeks. Patients will be advised not to pick, remove or pull at scabs as scarring may occur.

Laser therapy is an appealing treatment for acne skin conditions: no messy creams, no drugs and minimal risk of side effects.

That is why laser therapy is considered to be an effective solution for the treatment of acne and acne scaring, however, it is important to note that treatment and the number of treatments needed to obtain the best clinical outcome also comes at a price.

The good news is the advancements in Laser technology has meant smaller more portable devises have been developed enabling the laser market to expand into the home arena in the form of “at-home hand devises”.

One such light therapy devise is the Silk’n Blue home hand held device to treat acne and prevent acne from developing. As we discussed above, the blue light kills bacteria targeting the known cause of acne whilst the dermal heating reduces oil production in skin glands.
