Acne is a disorder of the skins’ sebaceous glands that affects over 80% of the population aged 14- 30. Although commonly considered to be an adolescent problem, 25% of the people affected by acne in their teens will go on to develop permanent scars. The effects on personal appearance caused by acne and the resultant scarring can cause significant psychological, social and occupational problems if left untreated. Current treatments show limited success for most people and involve long-term use of antibiotics, with their associated side effects.
It has been shown that the major cause of acne, Propionibacterium Acnes can be destroyed by application of light. The particular wavelength of light used well permeates the tissue to reach the bacteria responsible for the acne, targeting it safely and effectively. The high intensity light triggers the proliferation of particular molecules within the skin that attack and destroy the bacteria. The rest of the body is not affected by treatment as this process remains in the layers of the skin.
Laser Acne treatment is performed twice weekly over a number of weeks. A coolant is used during treatment to minimise discomfort, and Aloe Vera applied afterwards. Side effects from Laser Acne treatments are rare. You are advised that a sun block will be needed 2- 4 weeks following laser treatment as the skin will have been subjected to high levels of light energy and will be more sensitive to sunlight. However, on consultation with one of our qualified staff, pre and post requirements of laser acne treatment will be detailed further.
