Acne is an inflammatory skin condition that typically affects teenagers as they go through hormonal changes at puberty, although it can occasionally be found in very young children, too. Most adolescents find that their acne clears up as they get older, or as a result of over-the-counter or prescription medication.
For others, the condition may be so severe that they are left with noticeable scarring. Acne can flare up again in adulthood, and in recent years there has been an increase in the number of adults developing acne and suffering well into their thirties and beyond.
While some antibiotic treatments can be effective at dealing with active acne, they cannot address the problem of scarring. Luckily, a combination of laser treatment and microdermabrasion can offer a solution that deals with both the active acne breakouts and any skin damage that has occurred.
The microdermabrasion exfoliates the skin, removing damaged skin cells and improving the appearance of scars. This process can also stimulate the production of new cells. The laser treatment acts on two levels, eliminating the bacteria that can lead to inflammation and spots, and encouraging the cells to produce collagen and healthy skin.
There is no longer any need to suffer from the damage active acne can cause skin.
