Laser Acne Treatment: How Does It Work?

Posted on 06 Sep, 2016

Acne is a common condition, it affects most of us at some point in our lives; most commonly occurring when we hit puberty and being seen as one of those things that we have to go through in life. But what about when acne starts appearing in our 20s and 30s? This is known as adult acne, and it is becoming a prevalent condition that many of our clients are experiencing difficulty dealing with.

Adult acne can be difficult to treat as it can be hard to understand the cause of it, here we look at how laser treatment can effectively treat acne problems.

What is Acne?

Acne is commonly caused by excess oil production in the sebaceous glands and can be mostly found across the face, neck and back. It’s characterised by blackheads, whiteheads and pus-filled spots.

Additional factors can often worsen the problem:

–       Genetics

–       Hormones

–       Menstruation

–       Emotional Stress

–       Certain foods

For example, it is a common misconception that eating too much chocolate can be a major factor, but there is no hard evidence to support this – whilst it is, of course, beneficial to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly, this will not act as a fix to your acne problems. It will however ensure.

Acne Scarring

When it comes to acne, it can be difficult for sufferers to leave the spots alone, which is one of the most common causes of acne scarring to occur, which is why it is important not to irritate the skin further. This means not picking or popping the spots; however, it is worth noting that even acne that is left alone can also lead to scarring dependant on your skin type and the aggressiveness of the acne present in your skin.
