Laser acne treatment – a little more about the procedure

Posted on 16 Sep, 2010

Acne is a common skin disorder affecting millions of people around the world. Acne is difficult to treat and cannot be completely cured by regular treatments.

Laser acne treatment

Laser acne treatment is the only procedure that is completely effective in treating mild to severe acne. Laser treatment involves the use of laser beams which are capable of destroying bacteria and inhibiting oil production to reduce the effects of acne. Laser beams are of varying wavelengths because different acne conditions require laser beams of different intensities and need to be used for different time periods.

In some forms of laser treatment, lasers will be used for skin resurfacing. In this procedure, laser beams remove the uppermost layer of the skin tissue. In this treatment, skin reacts to the laser procedure and new skin is formed on its own without burning or scarring. High intensity laser beams are used in this treatment.


The best thing about laser acne treatment is that scars are removed permanently without the chance of reappearance. The treatment is also fast and doesn’t involve uncomfortable side-effects associated with other methods and techniques. It not only cures the acne but also reduces the acne causing bacteria present underneath the skin.
