Most people at some time or other in their lives experience problems with their skin. For most people it is a passing phase and they usually outgrow the problem, however there are the few people who end up having scars for life from the skin problems. One way to avoid scarring is to not tamper with any pimples or blemishes. Many people are unable to follow this advice and do end up squeezing the pimples. Laser acne can be used to get rid of the problem without leaving any scarring.
Treatment has seen considerable advances in the last 20 years. Over-the-counter preparations contain benzoyl peroxide or salicyclic acids. A GP or dermatologist will be able to prescribe a combination of retinoids (Retin A) and antibiotics. It is common to experience side effects such as redness or irritation.
If the problem is severe, systemic treatment should be considered. Most often, antibiotics are prescribed for the systemic treatment of acne. Unfortunately, antibiotics can cause resistance in people who use it on a long term basis.
In the last number of years, researchers have shown that this therapy is so effective that results will be evident after only one treatment. The popularity of this is increasing over time. Patients are able to select from a number of different therapy options.
Side effects include temporary discomfort, redness and swelling but other than this there is not much to report. Dark skinned people may find that their skin darkens even further after treatment. Aside from this there is nothing else adverse to report.
Administering laser acne therapy has shown as much as an 83 percent improvement when compared to those who do not have the therapy. People have reported that these results were possible after only three sessions of treatment. Some people respond quicker to therapy that other people.
