Acne is one of the most common problems faced by many young men and women. It is caused by build up of oil and non-friendly bacteria in the upper layer of the skin. This leads to acne or pimples. This problem mainly occurs during the period of early adolescence.

There are several methods to treat acne but laser treatment is one method which is now used by many people.

How does laser acne treatment work?

The procedure involves the use of light energy or a laser which is used to shrink the sebaceous glands which produce the excess oil that causes acne.

In addition to this, this laser also helps to treat the surface of skin which is suffering from acne. The laser reduces the scars which can be a distressing problem for teenagers. How does the laser clear the skin? The laser removes the layer of skin which contains the scars and encourages collagen to be produced and new skin growth. A new or fresh layer of skin is then seen. So, the skin looks better, healthier and smoother.

If you are planning to undergo laser treatment to treat acne then you need to consult a dermatologist. They will be able to advise you on the specific path you need to take to get clear acne free skin.
