Acne & Scar Revision

Have the skin you’ve always wanted

Acne is a common problem for most of the adolescent and young adult populations. Severe acne can cause scarring which can negatively impact people’s self esteem throughout their life.

What is acne?

Acne is the blockage and infection of the tiny pores in our skin that causes red and swollen lumps and pimples in the skin. Inside the pores are glands that produce a natural oil called sebum – which helps to prevent the skin from drying out.

Hormonal imbalances can cause these oil glands respond abnormally, causing the glands to overproduce sebum. The excess oil mixes with dead skin cells to block the pore, trapping oil and bacteria inside. This blockage causes swelling, leading to forms of acne such as blackheads, pimples, spots and whiteheads.

How does acne scar?

People will often squeeze and pop spots and pimples to try and reduce their obviousness. This can damage the skin layers and cause more inflammation, eventually leading to scarring. In severe cases the scarring is permanent.

Treatment

For treating active acne, certain lasers developed by Fotona can safely penetrate the skin layer to the optimal depth and target overactive oil glands. By using the controlled heating effects the oil glands function will be greatly reduced, bringing oil levels on the skin back to normal levels.

Laser acne treatment also accelerates the healing process by stimulating collagen in the skin to remodel and regenerate. This helps the skin to smooth itself out, reducing the effects of acne scarring.
