Acne can be an embarrassing and troubling condition. Even if you use topical creams, it may not be effective. However, acne laser treatments at DermaNuva Skin & Health Care are an ideal way to help clear the complexion.
What is Acne Laser Treatment?
When you have acne laser treatments, light is used to target bacteria and excess sebum that cause acne breakouts. These treatments can also shrink the sebaceous glands, which will result in less oil production that often leads to acne. The most common reason for acne is when the skin doesn’t shed properly, and acne laser treatments can help to exfoliate the skin. In addition, laser acne treatment can also help to minimize the appearance of acne scars.
The lasers that are produced during the treatment will create monochromatic light, which is a type of light that produces a narrow band of wavelengths. When laser lights are used to treat acne on the skin, it is called photoermolysis. This is when selected tissues are broken down to destroy bacteria in the skin.
Ideal candidates will be in good health and have tried other types of acne treatments that have failed. However, individuals with certain complexions may risk hyperpigmentation after the treatment. As such, a consultation is important.
