Laser acne treatment is an excellent option for those in Amarillo who are battling with acne. Lasers have produced excellent results for people who have already tried a lot of over-the-counter products, prescription medications, and topical creams. Many have spent tons of money on of these services and felt disappointed because they did not get the results that they wanted.
The goal of laser acne treatment is to address moderate to mild acne. When laser acne therapy is used, one of its purposes is to destroy the bacteria that fosters acne development. If acne bacteria are reduced, it only stands to reason that the symptoms of acne will also diminish.
Laser treatments have been shown to be effective in minimizing your skin’s ability to produce oil. If your skin produces less oil, the chances of severe acne will be greatly reduced.
Some lasers, especially those that use yellow and red lights, have anti-inflammatory properties. This is important because when you strip everything away, acne is really an inflammatory disease. The body reacts to oil, bacteria, and dirt with inflammation. So, if acne lasers are used to reduce inflammation, the appearance of acne will also diminish.
What to Expect with Laser Acne Treatment
Laser treatments are not something that you have just one time. In most cases you will need to have multiple treatments separated about one month apart to get optimal results. Depending on the severity of your acne, we may recommend that you have more frequent treatments. The results of laser acne treatment are long-lasting, but they are typically not permanent. You will probably need follow-up treatments in future years to maintain the results.
There are many studies showing the overall effectiveness of laser acne treatment. The general consensus is that laser therapy for acne does work. However, as with other treatments, the laser treatment will need to be repeated because the offending bacteria may regrow with time.
