Getting rid of acne by laser treatment

Posted on 01 Feb, 2010

Acne is perhaps one of the most common chronic skin problems. Acne is an inflammatory condition of the sebaceous glands, most commonly on the face, chest, neck and shoulder. Young people are mostly affected by acne which can leave scars on their face and make them feel self-conscious.

Many people try home remedies and visit doctors again and again to get rid of it, but without success. Laser acne treatment, however, is the most effective form of treatment to get rid of acne and its scars.

More and more people are opting for laser acne treatment as it has more guaranteed results and will work on any skin type. During laser acne treatment, the surgeon will shine a beam of Intense Pulsed light over the affected skin which will slowly degenerate the top, scarred layers of skin. It will cause new skin to regenerate underneath, making the scarred top layers come away.

After laser acne treatment, new collagen is formed. Collagen is a protein in the skin, so the new skin that grows will be strong and soft, like the rest of your skin.

If you are planning to undergo laser acne treatment, be sure to consult a certified professional before agreeing to undergo any procedures.
