What is Acne?
Acne is a common skin condition that affects many people at some point during their lives. It is a complex and continuous cycle that can be caused by many factors, resulting in a hormonal fluctuation that stimulates oil production. It is common in adolescents but can be experienced at any age and range from mild to severe. Too often, people squeeze spots and blemishes because of their unpleasant appearance. Unfortunately, the habit can increase inflammation and, in extreme cases, lead to permanent scars.
What can laser treatment do to help my acne?
Fotona’s laser treatment reduces acne inflammation through photo selective absorption and controlled heating. The laser safely penetrates the skin to an optimal treatment depth to thermally and selectively destroy overactive sebaceous glands. In addition, the treatment accelerates the healing process and stimulates collagen remodeling, an important step in the long-term treatment of acne.
What if I have acne scars?
Fotona’s laser is ideal for mild scar revision. It safely and effectively penetrates the skin for gentle resurfacing of acne-scarred skin, helping to improve your skins texture and tone. Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing allows the penetration depth to be precisely controlled by the medical laser technician. The laser gently vaporizes micron-thin layers of the acne-scarred surface to reveal healthy, undamaged skin below.
What can I expect from the treatment?
Each person is different but during the treatment, you can expect minimal to mild discomfort. Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness or swelling that will diminish after a few hours. Most patients can resume their daily activities immediately following the treatment. It is best to avoid direct sun for a few days following treatment and to apply sunscreen.
Although every person is different, the average number of acne treatments required with laser therapy can take approximately 4-6 treatments.
