Posted on 17 Jun, 2010

With its high success rates, laser treatment has proved to be one of the best treatments for acne and the scars it leaves. Laser acne treatment is so effective that it even heals severe acne which does not heal easily with anti-acne creams and other topical medicines. During laser acne treatment a beam of light is focused through a laser pen on the acne prone skin to kill all the acne causing bacteria. Moreover, it also cleans the surrounding area to eliminate the dirt clogged in the pores. This treatment also reduces the production of sebum (acne causing oil). Therefore, laser acne treatment reduces the possibility of future breakouts. Laser acne treatment is not only effective on facial acne but also works on acne on different parts of the body such as the neck, chest, back and shoulders.

The process of laser acne treatment:

During the procedure of laser acne treatment, the dermatologist applies a light coat of mist on the acne prone skin. This hydrates the skin. The dermatologist then safely treats the acne and blackheads using a laser pen.

Advanced technology has made laser acne treatment a safe and painless procedure that does not have any side-effects. Many people have experienced drastic skin improvement by opting for laser acne treatment.

The time taken to complete the procedure of laser acne treatment generally depends on the severity of acne and the affected area that needs to be treated. However, this procedure is usually completed in around 20 to 30 minutes.
