There are so many different suggested acne treatment paths to take that it can be difficult to know what will truly help. Doctors traditionally tend to prescribe topical skin treatments for acne, but these often leave your skin red and irritated without properly solving the problem. Many people who have struggled with acne are discovering a new solution – laser skin treatments. This new technology allows you to get to the bottom of your acne without risking your health.
Laser treatment can be helpful for several stages of your acne treatment. Not only is it useful for eliminating the evidence of acne from your past by clearing away scars and pigmentation problems, but it can also help treat acne that’s still in the inflammatory stage. While laser therapy may be slightly more expensive than topical acne treatment creams and medications, it’s undoubtedly far more effective.
Unlike microdermabrasion and dermabrasion treatment, laser treatment is relatively gentle on acne-prone skin. It heats the haemoglobin in the blood capillaries beneath your skin, sloughing off the top layers of skin so that newer, healthier skin beneath the surface has a chance to appear, improving the overall look of your face. Specially selected pulsing lasers work together to target particular tissues in your skin, breaking down blemishes while clearing and smoothing your complexion. Different techniques and lasers all have different techniques and benefits when it comes to improving your inflamed blemishes and reducing the appearance of acne scars and hyperpigmentation, so ask your technician exactly how the lasers will work in your treatment if you want more details about the process.
While dermabrasion can be very effective for certain skin conditions, it tends to be rough on sensitive skin, leaving redness and sensitivity that can continue for some time after the procedure. Laser treatments don’t leave you with these kinds of side effects – they work on the inside of your skin to make you look better on the outside, eliminating the risk of uncomfortable side effects and possible infections.
It’s important to remember that just one session of laser treatment is unlikely to have a lasting and dramatic effect on your acne or acne scars. It usually takes several treatments to get the results you’re looking for, so you will have to commit to multiple sessions if you want to see those gorgeously noticeable results that laser therapy promises. The results are definitely worth the wait.
