Acne & Acne Scar Laser Treatment
Acne is a skin condition that may affect most people at some time during their life. It is caused by factors including hormonal changes, certain medications, lifestyle and the use of certain cosmetic products can also trigger acne.
Acne is most common in adolescents although for some people it may only first appear in their mid twenties and can even persist into middle age. People often squeeze spots and blemishes because of their unpleasant appearance. This results in increased inflammation and may even lead to permanent scarring.
Having acne and acne scarring is very disturbing for most people and can also present as a psychological problem.
Laser treatment of Acne Scars is based on the precise and gentle skin resurfacing procedure where the Er:YAG laser is absorbed by the top micro-layers of the skin to vaporise scarred skin and stimulate the production of new collagen in the dermis.
The Er:YAG laser is used to remove micron-thin layers of skin so that new skin can form in its place. The laser gently vaporises the acne-scarred surface of the skin so that undamaged skin below is revealed.
