Laser remedies for acne

What is acne?

Acne is a disease of the pilosebaceous follicles. It is a type of skin pouch that contains the hair root, which is connected to the sebaceous gland that produces the sebum that is deposited in the follicle and then brought to the surface of the skin.

How is acne formed?

Acne appears as comedones, small blackheads or yellowheads, which block the opening of sebaceous glands with pustules, nodules and cysts. When faced with some factors, mostly hormonal, sebaceous glands secrete more sebum than usual: during these periods, the human body is subjected to important hormonal changes, such as an increase in androgens and progesterone. People suffering from acne have glands that are particularly sensitive to the abovementioned hormones.
The appearance of acne can be caused by the following factors:
  • Intestinal factors (for example, constipation)
  • Stress (for example, tension)
  • Dietary factors (for example, excessive intake of fat, sweets, alcohol, dairy products)
  • Genetic factors (for example, oily skin)
  • Hormone overproduction

What are the laser treatments for acne?

Different laser solutions can be applied for acne-related problems

The green laser beam causes photoselective damage to the acne-producing bacteria, reduces sebum and creates an improved epidermal texture

The use of the low energy density laser on artificial colorants offers a less invasive alternative to conventional treatments, such as dermoabrasion and antibiotics, which have the disadvantage of reacting indiscriminately to all cells, even healthy ones.
  • Non-ablative fractional laser 1470 nm
Effective for difficult situations of scarring acne; as it is a non-ablative method, it needs more sessions to consolidate the results.
