Laser acne treatment works by destroying the propioni-bacterium acne (P. acne) on active skin lesions. Skin treatments for acne are something our Mississauga clinic can help with.
Our laser treatment reduces potential acne scarring that can occur in severe cases. It has anti-inflammatory benefits that improves active acne. It reduces the production of sebum from the oil glands in the skin.
There is no reason why we have to suffer with those embarrassing pimples or acne cysts. Now with one single treatment we can kill the P.acne bacteria!
Laser Acne Treatment, How it works
Laser Acne Treatment technology is based on the same kind of laser techniques used to get rid of wrinkles and tone down acne scarring.
While it was being used for scar removal, it was noticed that existing acne cleared up in the area where the laser was targeted. In the process of treating scarring, it was found that acne seemed to turn off as well.
Lasers tackle wrinkles and scarring from chicken pox or acne by destroying the upper few layers of the skin, removing the indents of the scars. The skin’s natural healing process then leads to a smoothing of the overall appearance and feel of the skin.
How Acne Is Generated?
Acne occurs when oil secreting glands in the skin get clogged and become inflamed or infected.
Despite the blockage, glands in the skin carry on producing sebum oil.
This results in a swelling behind the blockage which causes a white head spot, or a blackhead if the sebum is exposed to air but still stuck in the pore.
The blocked pores can also become infected with a bacteria leading to swelling and the large red spots of acne.
The most common places for outbreaks of acne are the face, shoulders, back and chest where oil production is most heavily concentrated.
Within this bacteria is a chemical sensitive to oxygen, and it is thought that the laser therapy works by destroying this key compound.
The chemical does not like oxygen and dies when it comes into contact with it. The laser is believed to be effective because it generates oxygen at the point where it comes into contact with the skin.
