Laser treatment can removes the scars caused by acne

Posted on 25 Jun, 2010

Many people believe that an ideal way to get rid of acne is by using laser acne treatment. In this treatment, a laser is used to remove the root cause of acne i.e. the acne causing bacteria. Laser acne treatment also removes dirt, cleanses the affected area and even the pores that can become clogged with dirt.

Apart from removing acne, laser treatment also eliminates acne scars. The benefit of undertaking laser acne treatment is that it is a painless procedure and does not have any side-effects. It takes nearly 10 to 15 minutes to complete the process and it can be performed in a dermatologist’s clinic. In this treatment, the skin is first hydrated by applying a light mist on the affected area. The tip of the laser is then applied on the affected area by the surgeon to remove blackheads and pimples. This surgery can even play an important role in removing stubborn scars from the face.

As acne develops even on other skin surfaces like the shoulders, back and neck, laser acne treatment can also be used on these areas too. However, most people opt for the removal of facial acne and its scars, as these are the most visible.

This treatment not only kills the bacteria responsible for the growth of acne but also makes the skin look healthier and refreshed.
