Laser acne treatment can help to rid you of acne for good

Posted on 26 Oct, 2009

Acne is a very common skin condition, particularly amongst teenagers. Laser treatment can be very effective in the treatment of acne, especially when used in combination with antibiotics and other prescribed medication.

How does laser treatment for acne work?

During the treatment, the specialist targets the problem areas with a laser beam. This creates oxygen and the kills any bacteria which is present. This form of acne treatment also promotes the renewal of collagen- allowing new and healthy skin to form.

Depending on the condition of your skin, laser treatment requires a number of visits.

The advantages of laser treatment

After the treatment, you may experience some mild side effects, such as tenderness, swelling and irritation. However, these usually start to subside after around 24 hours.

Laser acne treatment is now offered in a number of clinics around the UK, and many offer payment packages which allow you to spread the cost over a number of months.

Laser surgery is one of the most effective methods of acne treatment- in reducing existing scars and reducing the likelihood of any future outbreaks.
